Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Salvemini is very friendly and easy to talk to.
She is an incredible physician, extremely knowledgeable and answered every question that I had! Very patient and good communicator.
I was happy to get an appointment with her at relatively short notice and was very happy with her professional accurate diagnosis. She was kind and personable.
Dr Salvemini was great. She has great bedside manner and she was very thorough at giving me a full body scan. The wait time was minimal. However, when I entered the office for the first time as a new patient, neither of the women behind the front desk greeted me. One of them was on the computer and the other was talking to a patient. I waited patiently for 15 minutes since I was early for my appointment and still neither woman asked me my name or who I was there to see. I finally approached them. I nearly walked out thinking it wasn't a professional atmosphere but another patient in the waiting room told me how great the dr's are and that the office is in transition as being bought by Schweiger. I'm glad I stayed.
The wait was long due to an upgrade in system. But the wait was worth it !!!
Dr. Salvemini was the first dermatologist I ever encountered since having skin problems since childhood that took time to figure out was going on with my skin. Very appreciative of her.
My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Salvemini for several years. We travel to Long Island from Staten Island just to be a patient of hers! Dr. Salvemini is very thorough and very pro-active in her body screening for skin abnormalities. I refer to her as "Eagle Eyes" as she has found skin changes where I did not suspect anything out of the ordinary and I wear my skin everyday! Of course that is her job, but she does it very well! Her bedside manner is comforting and reassuring. The wait time varies from 30-60 minutes, but if you build that into your day, Dr. Salvemini is worth it!
thorough exam, reviewed prior visits, always gives me feeling that I am important to her
She is a fabulous physician. I have been going to her for 18-20 years. Highly recommend her!
Total concern over my progress.
She is very knowledgeable and gives much thought to her decisions. She listens to what I have to say about what I am experiencing and takes it into consideration when deciding the best treatment for me.
Dr. Salvemini is very thorough and she requests and more importantly listens for your input.
