I saw her when I was maybe 14. Worst experience ever! I was having a rough time adjusting to my changing home life and depression and she basically said smarten up, or you'll be hooking on the street. My mom even heard this! Rude and condescending and should NOT be dealing with children and adolescents. Not helpful at all. Cold and mean.
This doctor writes prescriptions and sends you packing. She shows no care or concern. After asking some questions regarding medication doses and showing her a little online research of my own, she told us we could deal with our family doctor and that she didn't want to see us again. NON supportive. Told me the issues I was having with my son were my parenting. Although she may be knowledgeable, she has bad manners and talks down to you. I wanted a doctor not a drug dealer. She gets a 0 from me.
was a complete b***h towards me. i did not at all feel safe in her office. i know the truth needed to be told about stuff and that was fine but the whole thing where she didn't listen to me she really did frighten me when she started to say big words she made me feel bad as a person and should really die i came for help and thats what i got. personally i don't recament this dr at all. im 17 and came out for help and she was no help.
dr salo was not a good dr at all, she switch my sons meds up and had no follow up, she was told about his change and that he was going into the hospital, she was contacted many times and never heard a responce back..it has caused much stress in my life as now my son has been put into foster care because of everything that happend when his meds changed..she has cause much stress on our lives..i thought dr were supposed to help you, not ignore your help when its needed
Really makes my son feel cared about. Always gives him positive feedback. Straight forward. A good match for us. My son feels safe and relaxed in her presence. Sets more time aside than any other Phychiatrist we have seen in the past. She is firm, but listens well, to thought out suggestions.
She is a very rude arrogant physician! She has no ability to assess a youth's situation from an unbiased, respectful position. No other mental health professionals will work with her due to her rudeness and completely inappropriate manner! As a parent I would take my child to a vet before ever taking him to her again!
Dr. Salo is fantastic!! She is the only Child Phychatrist in town that relates directly to the children. She will actually tell them to take thier feet off the couch, stop picking your nose ect. She is also very good at explaining to a child why they are in foster care, why a new mdication is being tried etc. She doesn't sit analyzing things forever, she is actually willing to try things even if there new. Her honesty, straightforwardness and her ability to verbally relate to the children (she is helping) is above any one else in town. I have been in all the Kelowna offices. I wish all the kids that come into foster care could see her. But we all know how hard it is to change Dr.'s or even request a 2nd opinion. PS Dr. Salo is also the one who is actually making her own opinions she isn't taking a "mental health" teams view which can be a lot like playing the old child's telephone game. I totally recommend Dr. Salo I trust her 100% she cares and is truly concerned.
