Personal Information

Urology may seem an unusual choice for a career, but it is the most interesting of all of the medical disciplines. It encompasses a wide variety of conditions, many of which play a very important role in the quality of a person's life, and many have very different possibilities for treatment.
I moved to Seattle for my residency in Urology at the University of Washington, where I also completed a fellowship in urologic oncology, which is the advanced study of urinary tract cancers.
During this period I met my wife, Molly. We have two sons and two daughters. I enjoy spending time with my family, college football and the tuba.

Dr. Salazar is professional, an expert, and has great bedside manners. He cares about my personal health needs and explains things clearly and with respect. He's personable and always has my health history in mind when discussing matters, as though my last visit was just yesterday.

I appreciate this providers approach. He doesn't have the ego or attitude the last two providers I had there that put me off.

Regarding questions about my urological behavior, I like how Dr. Salazar verbally asks me the questions, giving me only two choices for each question. It is much easier for me than filling out a questionnaire with multiple choices by myself as I had do do with a previous urologist. If this is a technique that he has developed by himself I suggest that it be published or shared with other practitioners.

Dr. Salazar has excellent bedside manner. He listens intently making sure I had time to as questions. He obviously is well-suited for being a MD. I have been an RN for many years and recognize physicians that are naturally competent and caring. Give that man a raise!!

Dr. Salazar is an extraordinarily good urologist. He's friendly, casual in his approach, has none of the sometimes common doctor 'ego' issues, and is the reason my cancer was detected soon enough to be treatable. I would not consider going to anyone but him.
