Dr. Michael H Salinger has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

unneccessary complication

i had a baloon proceedure for svcsyndrome. dr sainger explained the proceedurevery well and i signed the consent form. my problems atarted after the proceedure when they sent me to a room before the bleeding was stopped or even controlled. I bled for three days and no one ould stop it until his partner came to my room and applied pressure for an hour.This should have been done in the cath lab but they were in a hurry to be done with me. never have a proceedure scheduled for a friday especially if Dr Salinger is in a rush to go out of town. I cannot stress how uncomfortable or scared I was for three days having dressings bleed through and having to be changed,painfully, for no other reason than expediency. It was a horrible three days.
