Very Thorough and Informative.

I was referred to Dr. Salberg from my primary doctor and couldn't be happier. Dr. Salberg went through every concern and more that I had and gave me several solutions I can work on. He and his staff were exceptionally kind and considerate. Thank you!

Dr. Salberg orders way too many test, and of course everyone has Sleep Apnea, so if you see him, count on the Sleep test. He told me to quit smoking, as if I didn't already know that, and said he would give me a treach to help me quit. Really??? Between his office and the Sleep Lab one doesn't know what the other is doing and they don't communicate to each other. I had to reschedule many appts due to lack of communication. I work, I look like a fool when I ask for the time off, then I can't use it for the appt. Better have great insurance, because he will order every test under the sun.

Patient

He is after your money, period. He will not listen to what you have to say and will cut you off in mid sentence. I went to this quack for a low back eval. Brought an MRI with, he said we need a different one and wouldn't look at it.he ends up measuring my neck with a tape measure because I now need a sleep study. Whaatt? He ordered 8-10 thousand dollars worth of tests that I did not need, along with 3 referrals. My blood tests alone are costing me over $1,000. for nothing. Stay away from this lying money grubbing jerk. I truly feel like picketing his office to let others know what to expect from this hack. Huge mistake going to his office.

Stay away

He diagnosed me as depressed and put me on several meds. Then he ran every procedure that he could. He told me not to worry about insurance because he gets the insurance companies to pay for everything. I still had all the procedures pre-approved just in case. I had one procedure approved and the day of procedure, he changed the orders to add certain items in the procedure. Of course, insurance did not cover them. We ended up going to court and had to pay out of pocket over $4800.00. After having a surgery at U of C, the spinal doctor there explained that the majority of the procedures were not needed and were used only to further Dr. Salbergs medical journals. He is more interested in his own personal gain than the patient. I was nothing more than a medicated lab rat that ended up paying big time in the end. I would never, ever refer him to anyone. If you like multiple EMGs in every limb possible and never figure out what is wrong....then this is your doctor.
