I was referred to Dr. Salzler by the Tufts Emergency Department after fracturing my knee cap in a bike crash. Dr. Salzler gave me very realistic expectations about my recovery time and process and his predictions were pretty-much spot-on. The wound is healing nicely and my recovery is on-track. He's always honest about where how I should be progressing and what he expects my timeline to be. This was exactly the kind of feedback I needed.
I consulted with three different orthopedic surgeon for a long overdue shoulder injury before meeting with Dr. Salzer at Tufts Medical center in Boston. Upon my first visit I was very confident and comfortable with his abilities and overall enthusiasm. Had a pretty serious procedure done and within weeks I was already seeing improvements. Dr. Salzer contacted me personally twice within a week of surgery. I am 5 months in and my shoulder is better than it was when I was 18. Great facilities, friendly staff and amazing bedside manners.
Dr. Salzler has been there to answer all of my questions, inspect any ache or pain I think k may be concerning and providing understandable explanations for all visits. He makes me feel less crazy for coming in to check what could be nothing. Such a pleasure to talk to and is by far my favorite doctor. I'd recommend him to anyone.
