Casey Milton | Feb 6, 2019 |

I appreciate how all of the information from my appointment was easily explained and available using this app. At this time, I have decided to postpone surgical treatment and/or cortisone shots. I am going to continue with chiropractic/acupuncture/massage and PT. Thank you for taking the time to meet with me regarding my MRI.

Very informative.

Dr. Saldua is very thorough in making sure you know what is going on and what is to come. I’m still waiting for insurance approval but look forward to continuing this professional relationship.

I appreciated how well Dr Saldua explained my problem in my neck along with computer graphics which showed every detail.

John Carlson | Jan 10, 2019 |

Dr. Saldua was very prepared for my visit and explained my condition to me so I could understand my MTI results. I liked his approach that surgery isn’t the first step in correcting my problem. I would recommend him to anyone who has back problems.
