Contacted the office to let them know I was having an issue with my COPD. They immediately scheduled me for a chest xray and set an appointment for me to come in as soon as I completed my xray. Everyone in the office is always courteous and helpful. Each time I have an appointment with Mr. Saldana, he Is focused on helping me. He Is not only knowledgeable and up to date about my condition and the newest/best treatments, he is the embodiment of kindness in his manner, he goes over and above to ensure that I fully understand and am a participant in my treatment, and graciously spends time answering all of my questions. I'm confident he is invested in my health, and knowing that COPD is a chronic disease, am very thankful that I am under his care!
