Dr Saltzman knew I was scared to have surgery, especially because I'm allergic to many pain medications. He assured me he would make sure my pain was under control before sending me home. I had a great experience and I'm no longer in pain on that side. I need another replacement and have no reservations about having him do the surgery. He has a great bedside manner!
