Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Before coming to Dr. Salmi I was unable to sleep all night due to pain in my back and leg. I had constant pain, and was limping. Now, I am able to sleep all night with very little top no pain. My limping has decreased and is now sometimes completely absent.I also have so much more energy, and because I'm not so absorbed by pain I am much more "present" in life. Yay!"
    - Michele
  • "This office is the BEST! My appointments are easy to make & always on time. I am able to be more active now. I Love to hike & camp and with the pain I had it was not enjoyable. Now I can get back to it! Thanks so much Doc. I've learned a few more jokes, too!"
