Eric S. Salman, P.A.-C. Physician Assistant

Eric S. Salman, P.A.-C.

Salman has been caring for me as my degenerative disk disease progresses for several years and each time I have gone to see him he has proven to be a straight-shooter who is willing to tell me the truth but do it in a kind and supportive way. He is warm, funny, smart, and over the years, has made a real effort to know me as a person. I truly believe he has my best interests at heart and I trust Eric Salman. Not only that, but I actually enjoy our appointments and look forward to seeing him. Frankly, in today’s health-care climate which seems to value dollars over all else, that is high praise.
