Verified Patient Reviews
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 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.
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!
Had a great experience with Dr. David Salvage and felt immediately at ease and in the hands of someone very capable. Loved the casual environment of the office and left feeling like a course of action was clear and all of my needs had been addressed. I will be returning and would highly recommend his services.
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.
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!
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.
I thought he was great. He listenedn to what I had to say and provided great solutions. I would defintely use him again
Professional and thorough. Easy to see that he really cares!
Dr. Salvage saw me right away. We spoke on the phone prior to the appointment so he can ensure we could help.Great doctor! Looking forward to book the next appointment.
He's a great person to talk to, and he makes you feel very comfortable during the conversation.
