Dedicated to Your Health

Dr. Saliterman sees all patients ages 13 on-up for general medical care. Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekdays (closed during the noon hour), and the telephone is answered 24 hours a day. He is on the Active Staff of Methodist and Fairview Hospitals. In the event you need hospitalization, you may select any hospital permitted by your insurance, and Dr. Saliterman will discuss your history with the attending Hospitalist Service. We are presently not taking new primary care patients, but are happy to accomodate established and new pilots for their AME. We are recommending Park Nicollet (952-993-2460) or Fairview Clinics (612-672-1900) for new patients.

Your medical care is important to us, and our staff works hard to accommodate your needs, including urgent visits when necessary. Please call to schedule an appointment at 952-920-8771. It is helpful if you bring your medications with you so that we can verify doses. You may wish to have your outside records transferred to us prior to your visit. You should come fasting for all physical examinations and most other visits in the event blood or urine samples are needed.

In addition to providing primary care services, Dr. Saliterman performs all classes of Aviation Medical Examinations (AME) for the FAA. We see general aviation pilots and pilots from all of the major airlines. We will try to accommodate same-day evaluations if your certificate is about to expire!
