What People Say About Dr. Yasser Salem, MD

I saw doctor Salem based on his reviews in hopes to find answers. I left his office in tears as a result of his horrible bedside manners. He misdiagnosed me with Cardiomyopathy and caused weeks of overwhelming stress and anxiety. His diagnosis didn’t sit right with me, and I sought a second opinion; thank goodness! Thousands of dollars, and countless tests later, I am relieved to say I was indeed misdiagnosed!!!!!! In my opinion, this man is a crook and should not be practicing medicine.

The most impressive experience in doctors office I could ever expect. If you look for a caring doctor that you can trust, whose bedside manners are outstanding choose Dr Salem. His decision to practice in Wisconsin is a true blessing to our community. It’s better to sign up when he still have room for new patients. I did....

Brought my very elderly mother. Waited hour/+ TWICE! No explanation. Awful bedside manner, was condescending & rude. Appeared, he felt he was talking to two "stupid women" who "needed a man" to direct them....disgusting! Ignored questions. Type that tells you what "YOU WILL DO!" no conversation, no explanation, no patient input/consideration. Your perspective/preference is immaterial to him. If you like your doctor to be your god, choose Salem!
