    I am so fortunate that I was referred to Dr. Salvian by my neurologist. I found Dr Salvian knowledgeable, thorough, patient and caring. His intervention saved by eyesight and possibly my life. I am eternally grateful to him for my treatment. I would also like to comment on the courtesy and assurances that I received from his office staff. I would entrust my life in his care any day.

    Dr. Salvian is one of the BEST doctors I have ever encountered in my life. I have been to numerous specialists and when I came to VGH for a blood clot to my arm, which turned into a vein harvest and transplant, Dr. Salvian was there to treat me and save the day. He took the time to explain the surgery to me ahead of time and followed up with me personally at the hospital even on his vacation time!!! Him and his team are the most intelligent and best in their field. I would put my life in his hands over and over again. He is an outstanding physician.

    Saw Dr. Salvian over a year ago. He is precise, to the point and honest which i much appreciate.I felt given his time restraints that he did an excellent job.I actually thought that he was quite pleasant. He sent me to another doctor for a second opinion and now its back to Dr. Salvian for treatment so his time and effort is much appreciated.
