"I watched my father, who is an internal medicine physician with pulmonary and critical care training, care for patients at their most ill state, learning what it meant to have compassion and empathy. My advisor during residency and former Vice President of Primary Care at Eisenhower Health, Dr. Joseph Scherger, further nurtured these qualities and strengthened my understanding of the art of medicine."
When he's not in the office, you can find Dr. Salib maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle that includes working out in the gym, running, or playing basketball (or watching it). He additionally enjoys surfing, snowboarding, and cooking. He recently became engaged to a lovely pediatric ICU step-down nurse obtaining her master’s degree at UW.
“I believe in shared decision-making between patient and physician to achieve complete and wholesome care of the highest caliber for each individual.”
