What Patients Say

"Dr. Salinas has been excellent. In my experience (ovarian cancer and 2 relapses) she has been right up there with the best I have had. I have just been "released" to go a year before my next check-up - after 9 years of more frequent check-ups, a great day!" ---Healthgrades

"Dr. Salinas is warm and friendly, seems comfortable in her own skin. She presented several options for me to consider, I felt she was genuine in her concern for me and my ailment." --- Healthgrades

Absolutely I would recommend Dr. Salinas. Through her efforts and knowledge, I am entering my sixth year of battling cancer, an accomplishment I probably would not have achieved otherwise. She is honest and forthright, as well as, compassionate and a genuinely nice person. – Healthgrades

Organized, caring, calming and quick to respond. Thank you for everything. - Google

I always receive time from staff and Drs who see me at Compass Oncology. I usually don’t have to wait, I get right in on my appointment time. The last time somehow I was skipped over and didn’t receive my blood test before the appointment. I still had a good checkup and visit with Dr Salinas PA. Can’t remember her name but I had her with the visit before. Most of the time a very friendly caring staff encounters. Thanks for all you do. God Bless. – Google

I was referred to her from my doctor. I found her to be very pleasant and informed of my case. She listens to me when I have questions, and answers them rightly. Also, her staff is also very nice and informed. I feel very confident when I see her, and enjoy our talks. Glad she is my doctor. – Healthgrades

She is an excellent and very caring oncologist/surgeon. She has excellent bedside manner as well, too rare for too many doctors. She came highly recommended by my doctor and her whole staff who had said they would recommend her for their own families if necessary. – Healthgrades

Dr. Salinas is awesome! She saved my life by thinking outside of the box. That woman has gifts that only God can give. I feel so blessed that she was my surgeon that day, and remains my oncologist today! – Healthgrades
