Dr. Salem is very professional, conscientious, and knowledgeable in his caring for his patients. I was extremely nervous during my first visit because of the extreme pain I was having in my right back and leg area. Dr. Salem was very patient in showing me and explaining to me exactly what was going on with my L4 and L5 and my sciatic nerve. During the recommended steroid injections he was extremely caring and kind and again very patient because of my anxiety. I would refer him to anyone.
When I first seen Dr. Salem he was so professional looking I didn't know what to think. He looked like a director of a hospital. But let me tell you, He is a gentle ,kind and a caring man. I would recommend him to anyone who is getting shots for there back or back surgery. He was highly trained in his profession of the spine and knows exactly what he is doing. I work at circle k on 27th St in mount Vernon ill. If you have any questions come talk to me. I will gladly help you make up your mind.
