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.

I am very skeptical concerning doctor's and my medical issues and my personality. Let's just say I'm a unique lady. So finding a good match is difficult. All my doctor's have been wonderful in caring for my medical needs and understanding my sense of humor.
