Ratings for Dr. Miran W. Salgado
After 12 years with my neurologist he told me he couldn't help me and it was time to "take the next step". I new through my volunteer work with APDA that a Movement Disorder doctor from Methodist was coming to Staten Island one day a week. i took myself over to his office on SI to check it out with a handful of brochures about APDA and a note to call me. I got a phone call that very evening. That was 5 years ago and he has never disappointed. I find Dr. Salgado to be a caring ad knowledgeable physician. He supported me through my DBS surgery assuring me I would have "a better quality of life and I do. In fact all the people I recommended to see him, some dozen or more, thank me. His staff is professional, caring and responsive to requests. I consider myself very lucky and remind him to stay healthy and take care of himself.....we have a long road ahead of us
I have the utmost respect and gratitude for Dr. Salgado and his staff; Tara, Jackie, Erika, Lori at Methodist Hospital for taking extreme measures in seeking the best resolutions with my medical condition; Parkinson’s, depression, anxiety and personal issues such as the lost of my 5 month old grandson with enormous professionalism and kindheartedness throughout the 10 years I have been under his care. Dr. Salgado takes the time needed to discuss thoroughly when prescribing new or changing my medications; new procedures such as DBS and physical therapy, speech and counseling. Then recommends follow-up appointments every three months to make sure all is well. I especially appreciate leaving with a solution and a smile when I have walked into Dr. Salgado’s office having a break-down; crying and sobbing uncontrollably because my medical condition takes me on a merry-go-round. Thank you all so very much.
When I first came to Methodist hospital, I took a dat scan test and I went to see dr. Salgado. He told me about the Parkinson's support group and one of the great things about it is that his coordinator, Erika, who ensures that I get an email every week about the groups/classes offered as well as to see how I am doing. I lost my sister who was a nurse here for most of her adult life. She would have been proud of the program that dr. Salgado and Erika has at the hospital helping her brother.
Dr. Salgado is an excellent neurologist! He took so much time helping me figure out my condition, even seeing me on a day he wasn't supposed to be in the office. He doesn't rush your appointment, evaluating everything, checking in with you on how your currently doing, and listening to your concerns. When I came to him I was in so much pain. So many other doctors gave me very limited options since I am pregnant. I now feel so much better and really owe it all to him. His staff, especially his medical assistant Jackie, is amazing! They are awesome, following-up with you and are so kind and patient. I feel very confident in their care and would recommend Dr. Salgado to any friends or family with a neurological concern.
Took 3 months to get app't - only in S.I. office 1 day/wk. FOUR hour wait in office and I was there to be seen for severe back and leg pain. Recommended that I have a special MRI that I was told by NYU that I was not eligible for because of titanium in my back...shouldn't he have known that? NEVER followed up with me. B'klyn and St. Isl. office have terrible communication with each other. Called for release of medical records and it took one month and three phone calls to get it. As you can see, the last reviews on this site were from 2011. Think long and hard before making appointment with this practice in either office. I was very disappointed and frustrated.
