  • Dr Saltzman spent time in reading my records and listening to my issues. He called in Dr Kazmers for his opinion on the pain in my foot and worked together finding options which were clearly explained. I was then sent to outpatient to see if a nerve block would help diagnose a solution. Both doctors came downstairs to follow up with me person. I mentioned to the resident I have never had such an attentive doctor visit with going above and beyond to find a solution. It reminded me of what I had heard about visits to the Mayo Clinic, working to make it the least difficult for the patient and finding answers without making you come back 6 different times. I was surprised when I read in Dr Saltzman's vitae that he had done a fellowship at the Mayo Clinic! It certainly showed!! I hope the U knows they have such dedicated doctors and show appreciation.
