      Upon moving into SanMateo County from out of state I was fortunate indeed in establishing Dr. Saltpeter as my primary care physician! 83 at the time and a former world traveler I'd had plentiful experience with MDs her and abroad. None came even close to comparing with Dr. Saltpeter's caring nature and medical expertise. When the MD with whom she shared an office left, Dr. S. too was forced to look elsewhere. When she became a hospitalist it was my loss but a windfall for others.

      Brilliant, caring physician.....my husband and I can't save enough wonderful things about the care she provides!

      We regret the day Dr Salpeter walked into our elderly mother's hospital room, introduced herself, and offered to be her treating physician.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
