Dr. Salata was excellent and took the time to listen to our daughter and explain all of her treatment options. Although the hour wait time wasn't ideal, Dr. Salata was worth the wait.

Dr Salada and his fellow did a very nice job. They actually followed up a day later to make sure I was aware of another condition which they spotted on the xray to make sure I was aware of the issue. I am already being treated for the other issue but I was impressed they caught it and notified me. Well done.

I expected the worst when I went to this provider, and I was pleasantly surprised. *** my condition deteriorated rapidly and hence the diagnosis for a new right hip was given by Dr. Salata.

I felt my overall experience with doctor Salata was positive. Very knowledgeable

Reviewed On 1/1/2022
Dr. Salata came in and sat down comfortably during my appointment - he didn't seem in any kind of rush or indicate he had an office full of other patients who needed his attention; it was like I was the only patient he had that day. We talked at length about my concerns; I was able to express how I was feeling and we had a great conversation. We were able to figure out a plan for going forward and the office staff scheduled my next followup appointment for me before I left the office. It was a wonderful experience and I will recommend Dr. Salata all friends and family in the future.

Reviewed On 10/1/2021
This was my first visit with Dr. Salata & I was absolutely impressed with his knowledge of my condition because he HAD reviewed my file, his straight forward approach to my hip/spine issue as it is complicated, his compassion & the time he took with me to explain what he thought was the best treatment and answer any questions my husband and I had after viewing my X-rays with us. I would definitely recommend him to all my family and friends. He put a lot of my fears to rest.

The visit was a good experience. I was shown the results of my MRI and what the surgery was going to attempt to fix. I was told of the options available and made my choice. Now we will see how skilled the surgeon is.

I really like Dr. Salata, but I have never seen him within 45 minutes of my appointment. It usually takes 90 -120 minutes.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
