Welcome to our website. Thank you for visiting us. Every day we aim to provide you with personalized, exceptional care. Our staff is committed to do everything we can to make your visit as comfortable, as productive, and as professional as possible.
In order to maintain this high level of care, we have instituted an annual Administration Fee of $25 dollars per patient. This is NOT a fee that will be charged at each visit and it is NOT a “facility fee”. It is a fee that is associated with the multiple administrative duties that Dr. Salvi and our staff are compelled to comply with in order to deliver first rate care. The additional paperwork, computer work, administrative work associated with an ever increasingly bureaucratic health care environment has been forced on medical offices by insurance companies, employers, and government. They have given us no choice but to add this fee. Most patients have been most gracious in understanding and accepting this fee. We thank you for your understanding and your support!
Our computer system has a patient portal that is easy to use and very patient friendly. If you want to address non-emergent medical issues with Dr. Salvi, we encourage you to utilize the patient portal for direct communication. Obviously not intended on medical emergencies or even medical urgencies, the portal is an excellent way to address concerns you have and, when Dr. Salvi has time, he will respond back to you on the portal. This is also true for communication after normal business hours and even on weekends. The patient portal is a HIPAA compliant, safe, secure, and a personalized way to communicate with his office or Dr. Salvi himself. Please feel free to utilize the patient portal – though always remember, with medical emergencies, call 911.
There is a link to the portal on this website. It is the tab on the right upper side of the home page.

In addition, we will open the first Saturday of each month (as our staff schedule allows) – but office hours will only be in the morning. Occasionally I will open the office on some additional Saturday in a month that is over-booked in order to care for patients when the weekly schedule is at capacity. Please understand, however, that we are an office that sees patients by appointment only. We cannot accept walk-in appointments, I’m sorry. We will do our best to schedule you as soon as possible. Do you have a special medical scheduling request? Use the patient portal and ask the staff.
Again, thank you for your loyalty and support. You have no idea how appreciative I am to the greatest patients a physician could ever truly have.
Thomas G. Salvi, M.D.
