While Dr. Salter may be technically excellent, her emotional support of my husband was appalling. Toward the end of his cancer illness and about a month before he ultimately died, he needed radiation, surgery and a feeding tube. She told him that she didn't know why she should bother doing these procedures on a "dead man." Shameful, hurtful, and completely outrageous "bedside" manner.

Dr. Salter is very knowledgeable, but can be very standoffish . I didn't have a problem until about 4 weeks into treatment when radiation caused some pretty severe burns. She just shrugged it off and said just put aloe on it. Luckily, the radiation tech checked my burns and helped me by giving me Xeroform for my burn, it helped greatly and still took weeks to heal. Basically, she was great unless anything went wrong then she just shrugged it off. Many times I would not see her at all.
