Would not recommend this doctor or the midtown health and wellness center. Barely got the time to interact wth the doctor. She was careless and had very little attention to detail. I wondered to myself several times how she hadnt lost her license by now. I saw her twice and she never even concluded the brief 2 minute conversations. Instead she'd just leave the room. The receptionists are also very disorganized. Really quite shocked and disappointed that one could find such low quality care in new york city.

I should have read the reviews on this doctor before I saw her. I just decided to go with her because she was close to my job. First off, the medical assistant was completely unprofessional and if I wanted to be harsh- uneducated. I understand these people are still in school and are still learning, but not only is professionalism common sense, but i'm pretty sure it was mentioned in most of your classes. Someone who mentions he decided he wanted to be in the medical field when he "saved a girl on the street that was passed out with her TOTO'S OUT"- no, you should not be in medicine if that is how you want to refer to a female. Furthermore, I had an ECG done on me- not my first. However, when a male is performing this, there should be a female in the room and was there a female? Nope, there wasn't. Finally meet Dr. Saltzman, she did not want to give me medication for my severe sinus infection because I told her Amox doesn't work that well anymore. She tried to get me to buy a herbal solution. Like no, that is not why i'm here. If I believed in that or wanted that, I would easily have bought that at a herbal store. The number one thing that has motivated me to write my first review about a doctor is that IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN A MONTH and I have called TWICE about my lab results and emailed. Nothing. I heard nothing. I got a letter in the mail explaining the bill to me, it said I have to pay out of pocket if a claim doesn't get approved. I'm sorry, last I checked you were in network? Why do I have to pay an out of network cost for a physical??????? She is seriously looking for a lawsuit- if not from me, from someone else.

I really love Dr. Saltzman's support staff. They are lovely people. I went to see Dr. Saltzman because I wanted a PCP who is integrative, and Dr. Saltzman has provided me with supplements which are helpful and offered nutritional counseling. I guess I long for the days when doctors really seemed to want to know their patients and seemed to have an idea of how to connect with them. I feel like Dr. Saltzman's constant reminders that she will charge her clients if they do not show up for their appointments is off-putting. I feel like I was blamed for having gained weight when weight gain is both a symptom of my disease and is also a side effect oft the medication that I'm on. I feel like a lot of victim blaming happened in my first couple of visits with her, which were when I was initially diagnosed with Graves-- I was given the impression that every thing from my high blood pressure to my weight gain were MY fault when they were/are actually a result of the Graves. I absolutely can't believe the level of guilt and self-hatred that I internalized from those two visits before I became angry enough to give verbal feedback about my experience. I don't think that my feedback here is going to result in any kind of change-- it is clear that medical professionals in NY are compensated well for sub-par acknowledgement of their patients as human beings. Still, it is extra disappointing coming from a professional who self-identifies as integrative.

Not professional. Desk staff is pleasant and helpful but doctor sent my lab results to an out-of-network lab despite covering my insurance. Now, I owe a lot of money for routine testing. Wait time was bad. Google Search told me more than the doctor did. Do not see this doctor if you care about your health.

I went to Dr. Saltzman for my annual pap. The office asked me to fill out an extensive health history (in addition to what you do on zocdoc- it took me about 20 min to complete). In about a total of 5 minutes, dr.salzman walked in, did my paps and breast exam, and walked out, without even asking me if I had any questions, nor engaging me with anything that I wrote about in my heath history. It was a very strange visit, and I felt disappointed by the care.

My experience with Dr. Saltzman is below 1 star. Luis examined me and he was absolutely wonderful and sweet. Saltzman came in looked at me and said "you're fine" and walked right out. i had to yell out to her to let her know i needed a prescription! she came back scribbled a name and left saying she would call me back with my lab results. of course, she never called me back. i got a FINAL WARNING bill 3.5 months later saying i owed a hefty amount, which then i was told when i called that there was no balance. that bill now went into collections and its turns out it was because they never processed my insurance information (even though they're telling me I filled it out incorrectly... thats the point of handing over my insurance card... so that they can verify) and I was "paying out of pocket". my insurance should have covered this visit! Aside from their awful system, and the doctors lack of edicate, the front desk people are LOVELY, helpful and super patient with my frustration. they showed compassion and will hopefully sort out this bill since it should have been covered by insurance.

I left my visit with Dr. Saltzman, or rather I should say my visit with the medical assistant Luis, feeling great. Luis was professional and kind. I saw Dr. Saltzman for all of 5 minutes at the end of my appointment which unfortunately was a clear indication of how available she would be to me in the future. I had the hardest time getting a hold of Dr. Saltzman for lab results. On more than one occasion I was told Dr. Saltzman would be contacting me with the results but she did not. Ultimately they were provided by Luis. When I reached out with questions over questionable results, I was told I would need to talk to the doctor as expected but I still cannot get a hold of her. I have called and emailed to no avail. This is very concerning. If you want to be seen in and out with no follow up, this is the place for you. If you want a doctor who cares to follow up on serious matters, go elsewhere.

First visit went fine, but at 2nd visit (only 2-weeks later) the Dr was distracted, would not give me my blood test results in person, and did not remember who I was. Also, the receptionists/assisants at the front desk could not figure out my insurance information even though I had already been to that office 2 weeks prior. Then this office (which is an in-network office for my insurance), sent my annual check up blood test to an out-of-network lab. This kind of service is unacceptable. I am still looking for a halfway decent general doctor. There seem to be none in NYC.

Dr. Saltzman was great-- I am VERY picky about my medical care and I've been trying to find a primary care physician for several years now since moving to New York. It's an hour train ride for me to get to midtown, but it is worth it to see a doctor who takes me seriously and is willing to advocate for me when I need it.

I came in for the lack of sleep due to severe back pain. My first very brief appointment manifested into two more appointments. One for acupuncture, the other a physical. The acupuncture was a waste of time and money. It did not work and she admitted to me that she was focusing on my upper back, even though my lower back was the problem. At my physical, I was given two more appointments. At no time did she address the reason for my visit. It seems all she wants is for me to make as many appointments as possible, get me in and out as quickly as she can. Addressing my problems and listening to me was not a priority.

Do not go see this "doctor" unless you want to be given herbs. I came in with a persistent cold and possible infection. She refused to give me a prescription and instead tried to up-sell me twice on products for sale in her office. Umm NO. At NO point in the exam did the "doctor" even give me an actual exam- didn't listen to my lungs or look in my ears/nose/throat. There was no treatment of any kind given!!!! Never will I be returning...

I had the worst experience with this office.I never give negative reviews but this woman cannot continue her unprofessional care. I first went in September of 2016 for my annual check up and the only thing that happened was my blood getting drawn. Then I finally went for my physical another day, mentioning my stomach pains, she said it was nothing. She also conducted my annual pap smear, where I again mentioned my stomach pain and cramps, where she once again said its all normal. I went for acupuncture for the my stomach discomfort and waited for 30 minutes to get into a room and then left in there for over an hour, where I just took the needles out myself and left. I then did allergy testing thinking maybe I am allergic to something, and that took forever. Finally after months of waiting for my results, calling and emailing I finally went in to get a copy of my lab results for everything, of course because they are so smart they messed up my lab work and I had to draw my blood again to redo the testing. Her own staff members think she's an disorganized. I finally visited a real doctor and came to find out I needed surgery to remove fifteen fibrosis and it was the cause of all my symptoms. This is after months of listening to non-sense from Saltzman. If she would have recommended a specialist and not say it was in my head six month ago, maybe I wouldn't need a big scar across my stomach from surgery now. Learn from my mistake, if you care for your life you will not go to this woman.

I've seen Dr Saltzman 5 or 6 times over the last 2 years, mostly because I'm too lazy to change doctors. Each time I say I'm going to come home and write a negative review, but today's the first time it was bad enough that I'm actually doing it. I checked in at the end of the day for an injection I needed, and waited 10 minutes, and heard Dr S yell at her receptionist "this is the last patient, right?" followed by something about needing to get to some kind of personal appointment. Then I was called up to the desk to pay for my copay, and while I was waiting, she came up to me with a syringe and said we could do my shot right here because there was no one around. That's bad enough, but there were actually two people in the waiting room that I think were waiting on her for this personal "appointment." I told her I wanted to ask her something and would rather go into a room, and she turned and walked away from me, saying as she was walking "well it needs to be fast - you're the one that was late." Her receptionist corrected her - I was in fact on time - and so she decided it was ok to take me into a room and shut the door so that I could ask her my question. I had a legitimate request for information about Adderall, and wanted to know what she thought - she totally snapped at me when I asked and said "I'm not giving you Adderall." I totally felt like a drug addict criminal, and I've never had Adderall before. She then told me I didn't need a band-aid after my shot because these shots don't make you bleed, and as I began to bleed, I had to show her and ask two times for a band-aid. To which she responded, yeah, I guess you're weird since you're bleeding. This is really representative of all of my interactions with her - it was just heightened enough today to make me realize I can't go back. And I would have been grateful if others had written reviews like this. And this has nothing to do with the many hours I spent fighting the $100 cancellation fee that I was charged after I cancelled an appointment with enough notice over email, that was sent to collections as I was fighting it. Now they won't see me unless they have my card on file and I signed something saying they could charge me whatever they needed to for my appointment without my authorization. I think this place is a horrible racket, or if not, it certainly feels like it. I've never felt so devalued at a doctor's office, and it's happened over and over.

Office appeared clean, receptionists were respectful. However, the doctor was incredibly impersonal. It was my first visit, she walked in and didn't even introduce herself. She proceeded with the exam asking had 'anything changed?' like we had known each other for years. She asked no other questions and when the exam was over walked out, only saying 'you're done'. She left before any questions could be asked and just the whole thing was incredibly rude. Overall she spent less than 5 minutes with me and the whole time I felt like a huge inconvenience to her. Would definitely recommend looking elsewhere for a doctor.

I was just too lazy to find another practice, but now I am so regret. This is probably one of the worst, to my experience. I went there two consecutive years because it's close and convenient, and now finally decide not to go any more. \ The waiting time is long. I always chose a time close to end of the day (around 5pm). That's probably the busiest hour. Each time, I waited for more than 30 mins. The practise isn't so professional as well. The first annual exam, I had to come back and draw blood twice, because my blood sample was lost! The second annual exam, according to the staff, their operation has been improved. I specifically asked to get blood type info, which requires additional lab work here. And still, I didn't receive my blood type info. What's worse, as I decided to find another practise, I do want to obtain my previous lab results. It cost 4 months and 3 calls to have them email it to me. Not sure why it is so difficult. Last, I do want to remind folks who consider to go here to not eat/drink before doing blood work, because it will impact the lab results! Though your doctor may tell you the lab technology has improved so much to eliminate those noise. God knows how the lab tech can distinguish your blood sugar is always at this level or it's due to a brownie.
