“During my first visit, I found Dr. Salim very knowledgeable and read my past reports. He offered a summary of my problems and what treatments he felt would be the first to try and were lest invasive. I found him easy to talk with and wish I had been able to ask more questions. I knew he needed to move on to other patients. I felt he was very upfront and explained my situation very well. If needed, I would return to see him.”

“Dr. Salim and all of the staff at Reconstructive Orthopedics has been so nice and have given me the best treatment for my spinal stenosis. By recommending physical therapy I was spared surgery and am able to keep my pain to a minimum. As long as I do the exercises every day I can do my every day activities with little or no pain! At age 74 (next month) with heart issues I would like to keep surgery to my last choice. Kevin in physical therapy knew exactly which exercises I needed to help me. Thanks to all!!”
– Judy B.
“Dr. Salim came in to see me to explain why he ordered x-rays. He felt this would help with the exam. No doctor has ever done that. He was thorough in his explanations, including showing me my x-rays with a normal one to compare. He explained the reasons for what he was doing and for what he was ordering. I asked if I understood or had any questions. He inspired a great level of trust in the initial visit.”

– Joanne C.
“I herniated my L5/S1. I was in pain when I first met with Dr. Salim. Dr. Salim's confident, cordial, and professional demeanor was a stark contrast to what I experienced prior. When my course of treatment led Dr. Salim to recommend surgery, he genuinely seemed disappointed that he wasn't able to "fix" me. He recommended that I meet with Dr. Greenleaf (another 5-star review to follow) who performed my discectomy. Great team all around from the office staff to the PA's and doctors. I recommend Reconstructive to everyone. Thank you for giving my life back!”
