Some of the staff can be very disrespectful and will debate with longtime patients who are in need of medical assistance. Dr. Solopek is a great doctor, but some members of his staff should not be working in a setting where respect and kindness are imperative.

Dr Steven Salopek is awesome. He is a listener and gets the job done. He calls in Specialists when needed. He never tries to keep solving your problems if something he gave you does not work. Dr Salopek is a caring Christian man with a set of morals that go above and beyond. I have visited this office for 25 years. I am always helped by his amazing staff and if you use your portal there is RAPID communication. I recommend this internist to and he is "FABULOUS". Rosemary Landry

Dr. Salopek is a knowledgeable doctor, and what I like the best about him, is his gentle demeanor. He really cares about how his patients look and feel at all times. Dr. Salopek's distinctive personality is as charming as his dry humor. His engaging conversation, will never disappoint you.

Dr Salopek was my MD when I lived in Lafayette in 2007-2009. When I moved back in 2013, I went right back to him because he is knowledgeable, thorough, and compassionate. I'm glad to have him as my doctor.
