My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal, as your physician, is to help you enjoy every day of your life as fully as possible, for as long as possible. The art of Medicine lies in accomplishing that goal in a way that respects your views and dignity and recognizes the particular realities of your life, so we can keep you healthy together, as partners. That requires asking the right questions and taking the time to listen to the answers. I’m committed to lifelong learning to maintain knowledge of the latest advances in the large and complex world of Health and Medicine, as well as skillfully guiding you within that system. I strive to assure that you receive sound advice on ALL of your options, encouragingly and in ways that you can relate to so that you can make informed choices and be empowered to prevent and treat medical illness and more, to enjoy all the benefits of healthy living.

from Claudine in WA March 14, 2018 for Joseph P. Salinas, MD

This is late; however, thanks to Dr. Salinas for the excellent care he has given me over many years. This care has been there before MDVIP.

from Nancy in WA February 26, 2018 for Joseph P. Salinas, MD

Dr. Salinas is like a dear member of our family. One of his most important qualities is his ability to inspire trust. I can talk to him about ANYTHING. This is a great relief and contributes greatly to my overall health. I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Salinas - just wish it had been sooner! I continue to recommend Dr. Salinas and the MDVIP program whenever I have the chance.
