Dr Salzer is the best Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor in the Fairfield County Area. He is a people person.
Thank you for your kind review, Estrella. It is our pleasure to have been able to assist you.

Recently had Sinusplasty surgery done and Dr. Salzer walked me through every step along the way. We uncovered in my exam that i might have Sleep Apnea, I was horrified to learn that after a few non-surgical approaches I would still require a CPAP aid for my condition. After the first night, I felt better immediately and had the best night's sleep in years. His ability to treat you with compassion, understand the patient's point of view and ensure you stay connected with him is unprecedented.

I waited over 45 minutes for my appointment with this man. When it was turn, he spent 5 minutes with me and explained nothing. He left me with more questions than answers and has an awful way about him. He was aggravated and annoyed from the beginning of my appointment. I had to go back to my primary for her to explain everything to me. This man is a terrible doctor, he is not smart and worst of all he is arrogant.
