Excellent.

June 2017
Dr. Salazar was excellent! I have many disease states and she went through each one and then gave me a thorough overview and status of my on-going health. I felt like she had been with me through all those years even though I had just met her. We actually had a good time; she let me participate in the decision making.

Dr. Salazar was great!

I felt that my time with the nephrologist mainly asked me questions, all of which I´d been asked many times. This is understandable, but it also made the exchange a little one sided.

EVERYONE WAS great!
