I have been living with lupus for over 45 years. Dr. Salmon has been my rheumatologist for almost 30 years. We have the best patient-doctor relationship. She has provided me with the best medical care through acts of generosity, determination and incredible support. Dr. Salmon and her colleagues have always quickly diagnosed my lupus condition and treated it in the most effective manner. She has saved me from the debilitating pain of lupus. I have also had a double hip replacement surgery performed by Dr. Figgie in 1994 and still feel great and moving well now. I am grateful for being able to do the very simple things in life (getting out of bed, walking and being able to prepare my own meals) without experiencing severe pain. Dr. Salmon has managed my overall health care and I couldn't be happier. I trust and respect her medical opinions. There is no cure for lupus, but for the people who have the disease there is no better place than HSS Rheumatology for treatment and care. Dr. Salmon, besides being my primary care doctor, has been my friend . The care and support she has continuously provided to me is a gift I will always treasure.
