Dr. Edward L Salerno has the following 4 specialties

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • Sleep Medicine

    A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
    Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
    Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Recommendation - Starling Medical Group

I am impelled to write a positive review for the Starling Medical Group. They have multiple office locations in the Greater Hartford, Connecticut area, but my experience took place in Wethersfield. Overall, I was met with professionalism and care. The "Operation": I did not realize the size of the Starling Group and I was immediately impressed with how efficient, professional, and prompt they are. I was directed to a bank of dutiful receptionists who quickly instructed me on their procedures. They were kind, brisk, but attentive to questions. Recommendation: arrive at least 15 minutes early to process paperwork. They move quickly, but they responded to my questions politely. My appointment was at 9:45 and I was taken exactly at that time (I arrived at 9:30 and I was brought to an office at my scheduled time). Staff: The medical assistant, Mary, definitively moved about the room with alacrity. She had a pleasant demeanor and exhibited good customer service and bed side manner. She did what she had to do, but engaged me. She also did not miss any details in reviewing my paperwork - she picked up on a note I made in an obscure area. In addition, the doctor asked for another assistant to retrieve a phone number and it was done in minutes - no one waited. Dr. Edward Salerno: The doctor arrived about 5 minutes after the assistant left; he was prompt and apparently, the staff mentioned, that this is consistent (barring any unforeseen circumstances). Young doctors take note: Dr. Salerno put on a bed side manner clinic! He was kind, probing, realistic, but gentle in his delivery. Based on the volume of patients coming in to the reception area, Dr. Salerno was always present with me and moved decisively to ascertain additional information. I got the sense he was going above and beyond. In all, I think Dr. Salerno is a sharp (he pinned scenarios before I could even tell him) and compassionate professional. I highly recommend his services and the Starling Group.
