Waited 2 hours from my appointment time before I was seen by her. Didnt have time to get to know her since the appointment needed to be rushed, so I can't fully rate my direct experience with her.

I felt like a person and not a number. My overall experience was very good. I had a successful VBAC with Dr. Salsbury. I particularly liked the fact that she took her time to talk to me and smoothed a misunderstanding that happened with a staff when I was there. Dr. Salbury herself is amazing and understanding, caring and funny.

Dr. Salisbury was professional, knowledgeable, and kind. She answered my questions and did not dismiss any concerns. This was my first time there which may account for the long wait time as I saw many patients come and go while I waited. The office is conveniently located, clean, and efficient. I am no longer in need of an obstetrician, just a gyno, and I am glad she was recommended to me.

This place is a joke. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND! I found this office through my network and did some research online. I scheduled my appointment to come into Dr. S's office. I was switching from my last OBGYN because she wasn't in my network and it was getting pricey. When the office called me they asked me my due date to make sure the doctor could take me. The nurse (or whoever) told me that Dr. S would be able to take me and sent me a release to sign to send my records from my previous doctor. I sent the form and then when I went to go in they told me that Dr. S could not take me! Oh and to top it off when I went into the office the girl at the front was unwelcoming and didn't even seem like she even wanted to help me. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!. So because of their incompetence I now lost my last OBGYN (since they closed out my file when they faxed over my records to Dr. S' Office) and now have to go out again searching for a new OBGYN. This place SUCKS and is very UNPROFESSIONAL. Save yourself the headache and find another place to go to.

This was my first visit as I moved here from out of state and needed a new doctor. All the office personnel were very friendly and professional. Dr. Salisbury was very professional, kind, took time to review my history and explain everything to me. I'm very happy to be a patient here now and highly recommend her to anyone needing a new doctor.

Love the staff. Everyone is professional and helpful. I found this office online a couple years ago by sheer luck and I couldn't be happier. Sometimes there is a short wait, but for the occasional doctors appointment, I'm happy to wait knowing the level of care I'll get.

One of the most important things I seek in a doctor, besides their technical expertise, is the human touch. I think that that speaks profoundly about how the Doctor views the value of life. Do you really want a doctor to treat you and your baby as a product or as a valuable human being? Do you want to feel you're in a factory where you are just another item in the assembly line or do you want some one who exemplifies the reality of beauty in each individual through sympathy. One of the things about Salsbury is her sensitivity in understanding precisely what the patient is going through. She makes you feel like what we were meant to feel, that is, human. Aside from her human touch, her competence is excellent. She asked all the right questions. She seems to be aware of all the new developments in her are of expertise. I would highly recommend Dr. Salsbury with no hesitation.

Everything went great! Everyone was friendly and they take the time to talk to you. I love that they have a mini "101" course for us first time mommies to take us through the basics and answer any questions we might have. You can sense how thorough they are and how it's about the patients and not the business.

They used to have an NP that was really good and I always felt so comfortable going there. Ever since she left, things seemed to go down hill. They were horrible with contacting me back. They prescribed me a medication and when I went to the pharmacy to pick it up, they gave me 2 bottles. I called My OBGYN and left about 3 or 4 voicemails stating they prescribed 2 meds and I didn't know which to take. I also spoke to 2 people who assured me the doctor would call me back that day (never did). I started taking one of the meds in the meantime. Within almost a week and a half of me trying to reach someone, NO ONE contacted me back. (This was the 2nd time it took them over a week to contact me back). Luckily, I had a follow up appt. When I went to the follow up appointment they told me to stop taking the meds (that they prescribed) and take the other meds they had prescribed. I was never given a reason why 2 meds were prescribed. I understand mistakes happen, but I would not have been upset if someone had at least returned my call immediately to let me know which one I should have taken. Also, after waiting almost 2hrs for this apt, I asked politely how much longer is the wait and she responded with attitude "you're next". Worst feeling is knowing you had a good Gyno and felt comfortable and having to look for a new one.
