Physician Bio

Dr. Salazar, a native of Mexico City, earned her medical degree from Stanford University and has since served vulnerable populations in several health clinics, and public health departments. At the County Health Care Agency, one of her duties included serving as a spokesperson for public health issues for the Spanish-speaking media.

Most recently, Dr. Salazar completed a fellowship with the California Health Care Foundation Healthcare Leadership Program. She describes herself as an avid life-learner who always challenges herself to provide cutting edge, evidence-based medicine.

An interest in social justice and how medical ailments impact groups and society at large fostered what has become one of Dr. Salazar’s specialties: treating patients with HIV. Working with patients who are affected by the biggest epidemic of our lifetime has reinforced for her the importance of treating all patients with dignity and respect, never losing sight of them as individuals.

One of her favorite quotes is, “to neglect compassion is a mistake because it is the source of our own well-being.” Dr. Salazar and her husband feel blessed to have three healthy children and enjoy spending time with them and playing soccer.
