Founded in 1961 by Dr. Joseph Saltzer, our organization is built on strong patient-doctor relationships that continue for generations.

Dr. Saltzer was born on an English immigrant ship heading to Canada. After settling wi=th his family in Montreal, he earned a medical degree in 1935 from the prestigious McGill University in Quebec, Canada.

Dr. Saltzer completed his internship in New York City and started his medical career specializing in pathology. At the time, it was not unusual for pathologists to get tuberculosis, and soon Dr. Saltzer was fighting the disease. After suffering from a collapsed lung and a remission, he was urged to go “out west” where the dryer weather would be more conducive to a full recovery.
