“In my experience, psychiatrists tend to be bad, mediocre or good. Dr. Salvage, however, is better than good; he is GREAT.
He is not only an excellent clinician but also a truly wonderful person. His understanding, concern, compassion and humanity shine through in all he does.
He listens without judgment, he suggests options without requiring blind obedience, he hears his patients and responds thoughtfully to their concerns, and he is willing to admit that neither psychiatry nor psychopharmacology are exact sciences.
He sees himself in a dialogue with his patients on a journey that can be unpredictable and challenging; one whose outcome can rarely be absolutely guaranteed but is so worth pursuing.
He is also deeply sensitive to a patient’s family. He understands the role they can play and encourages their participation when appropriate. He also realizes and responds to the stress a patient’s illness can create within the family.
Dr. Salvage is tireless in supporting his patients, building their self-awareness and crafting interventions that acknowledge the uniqueness of each one.
... and that is why he is GREAT.”
