About Me:

One of my greatest joys is seeing my patients thrive and achieve their health goals over time - this is why I was drawn to primary care. To me, medicine is so much more than the prescriptions I write. Food is medicine. Movement is medicine. A kind word and feeling seen and heard is important medicine. While my internal medicine training emphasized management of chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease, whenever I can help people cut back or stop medications via lifestyle changes is especially rewarding to me. My training in pediatrics allows me to support your child’s development, as well as give additional expertise for children who may have more complex needs. When your teen graduates to adult care, no need to switch to a new provider! Outside of medicine, I enjoy landscape photography, yoga, hiking and mountain biking with my husband and daughter.

Computer system was down for quite a while

  May 15, 2023
Only negative during this visit was the wait time to check-in -- it took about 10 minutes from the time I arrived to be called up to the desk to check-in (also, I had check-in online but still needed to check-in with staff).On the positive side, Dr. Salleva was excellent as always. Her MA, Sharon, was also very good.

Have always been treated good.

  Mar 6, 2023
The problem is not necessarily with this provider, but rather the healthcare system at this time. Dr. Salleva is very compassionate and caring. She practices evidence based care. However, with Long Covid now having 16 million in America, and growing, this is a problem that primary doctors need to understand and try to keep up to date, versus just waiting for NIH to come up with test proven data. This likely will take 10 years, and people are in disabling pain and suffering. The wait to get into Covid clinics is long, a year to over a year. Trials for some care, require clear testing criteria as its research. But the ART of medicine, questioning, probing, trial/error is lacking in current health care. Are all of us Long Covid patients, formerly a health care worker who became ill in 3/2020, just supposed to wait....and we loose our health, ability to work, savings, house...It seems a think tank of professional should be looking for answers, versus the long covid pt community pushing the boundaries of what care is, or establishing treatment ideas. Like many primaries, Long covid pt's take time, dr's don't have time due to staff shortages. Most Iv seen don't care and want me to go away. Dr. Salleva cares, is interested, compassionate. But really has nothing to offer in regards to Long Covid, though she usually supports ideas I bring to her that I have researched and found helpful. I just wish more doctors were leading this recovery. I stay with her, because she is the best I have found, and I do think in time, she will more understand and is well on her way to becoming an excellent doctor, because she Is a compassionate listener.
