I was really impressed with Dr. Salazar who I was seeing for the first time in a consultation about continuing blood in my urine after a procedure done for bladder cancer. She was especially clear in explaining to me how my kidneys worked and how she came to her decision through lab results that I do not need further treatment from her. I feel very reassured about my physical health. I give her my highest recommendation.
