Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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!
