    Dr. Salami was very helpful and referred me to doctors that could also help me in Minnesota as I head back this time of year for the summer. I believe he sent my information to them also. I will contact them this summer to see if they are available to help me with this procedure.

    Dr. Salami was by far the best experience with a specialist in 20 years of Healthcare. He did not rush the appointment and was sure to thoroughly explain (and even draw) what's going on. I felt involved and listened to. The overall experience was excellent and I'm so glad I'm under his care. Would definitely recommend to others!
