Felt incredibly supported and understood, and most uniquely, not rushed. Clearly Dr. Salvage is genuinely concerned withthe wellbeing of his patients. Such a necessary and (sadly) rare asset in this field.

I saw Dr. Salvage for a Ketamine infusion. I had heard about it from a friend and decided to try it. I didn't realize how it felt to live life without depression. I am floating on air right now! I cannot recommend Dr. Salvage more highly. His manner is gentle and he quickly and easily allayed my jitters going in to the treatment. A+ all around!

David is exactly what I was looking for, someone who is very open and actually listens to what you’re saying. His energy and bedside manner are great and I really felt safe speaking about my issues. I would definitely recommend seeing him and will continue to see him myself.

It is rare for me to write a review of the doctor however I felt like this one was a must. Dr. salvage was a pleasure to meet with. His overall demeanor is warm and genuine. He made me feel very comfortable discussing my concerns and needs, and welcomed me to his practice. Very thankful I found him on zoc doc because he is a gem to the psychiatry world.

Dr. Salvage was a kind and understanding ear- he asked all the right questions that helped me realize certain patterns I'd had, why my mind/body reacted they way it had been, and I left feeling immediately...relieved. I can't believe how much better I'm feeling already and feel so fortunate to have found him and would recommend him in a heartbeat.

Dr. Salvage is an amazing professional. I've been seeing him for a couple of years now and he was always there for me whether on the phone or in person. He truly listens, and gives great insights and feedback at his sessions. His office is comfortable giving a feeling of home. I bring my dog with me to the sessions. I am very lucky to have found him!

Dr. Salvage is a highly professional and compassionate Psychiatrist that has helped me through some very difficult times. The ease and availability of scheduling appointments is excellent. He has helped me with addiction and all other mental health components that come along with it and his treatment is very comprehensive. I have been to both of his offices (one in Manhattan and the other in Brooklyn) and I feel right at home.

I found it strange that he would have his cats in his office (which was an utter mess and filthy) and allow them to jump on top of you all through out the session and not ask if I found it bothersome.

Dr Salvage literally made me feel "covered" from the moment I arrived. Covered in the sense of finally being in the care of a seasoned Dr. dedicated to retaining my quality of life. Warm, intelligent, kind spirited and thorough in his craft; Dr Salvage actually educated me on the intricacies of my plight and assured me that I'd be okay. I've found my Doctor. And would absolutely recommend him with flying colors!

Dr. Salvage took the time to call me before my scheduled appointment to assess whether or not he would be the right doctor to address my needs, and he also informed me of the cost of a visit. Although I didn't end up seeing him, I appreciated the fact that he was considerate enough to call me and provide me with the information necessary to make the right decision about seeing him as a patient.
