About Me

Dr. Sasan Salmi was encouraged by his parents to choose a profession in medicine, but he ultimately chose the profession because he loves internal medicine and the geriatric field. He enjoys internal and geriatric medicine because of its many advances and opportunities to address a wide-range of acute and chronic conditions. He receives the most satisfaction helping his patients through difficult times and healing their illnesses.

I think of my patients as family members.
I go above and beyond for my patients and am a true advocate for them.
