Physician: Amy Saltzman, M.D.
650-575-5780

I assess each individual within the context of their life.

I address academic, family, peer and extracurricular issues. My strong preference is to treat using diet, exercise, nutritional and herbal supplements, mindfulness and self-compassion.

I do recommend conventional and specialty lab work and testing, and prescribe medications when needed. I offer potential new patients a free 15 minute meet and greet to determine if we are a good fit.
