What People Say About Dr. Sussan Salas, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have several neurological disorders and Dr. Salas, though being nice, provided little if any help for my situation. I was not examined thoroughly and all of my MRI films were not examined. Dr. Salas could not explain why the MRI reports were so extremely different, didn't ask about my pain or provide any options for the next step. Very disappointed and felt dismissed.

Dr. Salas did an emergency craniotomy on me and I did not have any side affects to date. I was very impressed with her and her staff. It was very scary but Dr. Salas explained everything and let me make my own decisions about my care and listened to my questions and concerns and made sure my family member was well informed as well. I am so thankful for her. She saved my life and I am back enjoying my family. Thank you Dr. Salas and hats off to you and your staff.

After being in a major head on collision both arms went completely numb with with extreme pain, I couldn't even cut vegetables or lift pots and pans. Then it moved into my legs and feet, Dr Salas was amazing, kind and compassionate. She truly cares about her patience and there wellbeing. She preformed a cervical diectomy instead of fusion so I would have complete mobility. I highly recommend her

I came to her office in pain so bad I had to use crutches just to walk. Dr. Salas and her staff did a wonderful job telling me what was wrong and what was needed to get me back to being myself. The surgery was smooth, no complications. At every post op appointment they are thorough in explaining what restrictions I have and what I should be able to safely do. I love that they take their time with the recovery process. I am forever greatful to what Dr. Salas and her staff have done for me
