Patient Comments (2)
in Carlsbad, CA |
I have been a patient of his for over 10 years. He has been the epitome of a family doctor. Professional,polite, and truly concerned about my health. I feel very fortunate he is my doctor.
This is the first post I've ever made. Dr. Salinger misdiagnosed a serious medical condition, and was unaware the tests he ordered were very likely unreliable. He was resistant to ordering reliable tests which when finally ordered revealed the misdiagnosis. Dr S declined a call to discuss orig diag, so we waited for an appt, where he insisted he was correct, non communicative and curt. His handling added significant emotional distress to a difficult situation. We definitely do not recom this Dr.
