Really liked Dr. Salvado. She was incredibly personable and very knowledgeable about not just the ears, nose and throat, but allergies as well. She is thorough, but not to the point where you feel like you're getting treatments you don't need.For example, she told me I may need a CT scan of my sinuses down the road, but that I don't need to worry about it now until we first try other, less costly methods of treatment. Will be going back--she's GREAT!

I think she is an amazing doctor and I will definitely keep her as my new ENT. She was super smart, thorough and has a great bed side manner. She diagnosed my issue right away and treated it. I was takenon time and the best thing is she is within my insurance coverage -- a luxury which I don't take advantage of enough. I have recommended her to everyone in my office.

Dr. Salvado is very knowledgeable and polite. She responded all my inquiries and made my visit a memorable one. She has what many doctors in this industry are lacking... empathy! I have always been very hesitant in visiting medical offices...but this practice made me feel welcomed and cared for. Everyone there is an ALL-STAR, from the polite front desk receptionists to the providers!

Great doctor! I am a professional singer and I had been to other doctors before but nobody "cared" about my voice as much as she did. She was the only one to really identify the problem!

Dr. Salvado seems knowledgeable, but seemed rushed during my time with her. She is pleasant, but did not seem to interested in establishing a doctor/patient relationship. MY main concern is that the treatment Salvado has put me on, is effective. If it is, that's all that matters to me.
