Dr. Salzman is a caring and more than capable physician who listens as well as he practices medicine. He takes his time during consultations so one never feels rushed. Furthermore Dr. Salzman is always ready to discuss all all aspects ofthe situation, offer numerous suggestions and then go over the pros and cons of each one. I would recommend Dr. Salzman to anyone needing care in his specific field.

The practice was introducing a new system. This meant that we had to fill out all of those forms again. There should be a better way but this has happened with other practices. We kept a smile on our face and finally got to see our wonderful Doctor.

I paid the highest consultation price just to hear him say "the good news is you're gonna live." Although I did not have a significant medical problem to warrant another visit, I think for that cost I'd at least get his dog & pony show."

His staff is nice but rushed - seems like they were trying to get to the next patient as soon as possible. Although I filled out the profile sheet the only thing they covered were the prescription I was taking andany allergies. They took the usual BP test and then left the room - waited for the doctor for at least 20 minutes. The Dr arrived pleasant enough and began his evaluation of me by performing some basic tests. One thing that turns me off right away with any professional is how they are groomed - he had dirty nails and worn sneakers on. The dirty nails got me. Although he did prescribe medicine to help me - he never asked about any other conditions and I had listed some - at that point after the nails and shoes I really wanted to leave. When I got to the pharmacy - I guess through their EMR software - my name was misspelled so I had to deal with the pharmacy changing this which took a while - granted I was in a lot of discomfort through this whole ordeal due to my condition - so my patience was running very thin. Although I made a followup appointment I will likely not go and will find another doctor. My personal physician office recommended him - I need to understand why he was recommended - I must be missing something here.

Dr. Salzman is a very thoughtful, caring doctor. The appointments were running behind but that didn't stop him from listening to me express my concerns. The appointment wasn't rushed and Dr. Salzman's little jokes put me at ease. His nurse,Gabby, is great. The staff was friendly and efficient in processing my paperwork and setting my next appointment.

Wonderful experience! From the moment I entered the staff was helpful and friendly. My appointment was for 11:00 and I was seen at 11:03! From beginning to end, care, inquiry, and payment were seamless. Dr Salzman is exceptionally patient,and is truly engaged with you throughout the visit. As someone who has a chronic neurological condition and has seen several specialists over the past twenty five years, I can attest to Dr.Salzman's knowledge and compassion. I'm 65 years old and I have seen several neurologists; however, I detected something different in Dr. Salzman - a gentle and generous demeanor. Rare among doctors.
