Paul A Salmen, MD

Primary Practice: Family Medicine

“The opportunity to make a difference in this community and make a difference to generations of families is what really appeals to me about family practice. I’m still treating patients I delivered 20 years ago. I also founded the Valley View Hospital’s Youth Recovery Center, and it’s gratifying to have helped thousands of young people get back their lives.”
