Quite possibly saved my life

Dr Salinger is not my regular Dr, but was the on call Dr last week when my Dr was booked for the day. I was having chest pains and shortness of breath. He did an EKG that was normal, but he said given my symptoms and family history he didn't feel comfortable sending me home, so he sent me to the emergency room. After many tests, it turned out they I had a 99% blockage in a major artery (they call it the widow maker) and I had angioplasty and had a stent put in. I was a walking time bomb. Had Dr Salinger not listened to me and paid attention the outcome could have been very different. I am so grateful and so is my family. Thank you, Dr Salinger!

Unpleasant

Dr Salinger treats you like he's in a hurry and everything you ask him feels or sea like it's annoying him. No bedside manner whatsoever. No explanations given, no info given, just a quick rush job, he takes a few notes and then bolts out of the office.

Ignored me. Rushed to a diagnosis. Treated me like I was a waste of time. I'll never revisit.
