“Much of the influence of choosing medicine came from my father, a family and emergency medicine physician who showed me how selfless and respected the profession is,” said Dr. Salkauskis.
In addition to his education and training, Dr. Salkauskis is BLS, ACLS, PALS, and ATLS certified and also holds an ABFM Board Certification.
“I specialized in family medicine because being able to develop relationships and seeing patients throughout the course of their life was the natural fit for me,” said Dr. Salkauskis.

He has participated in volunteer community activities including Simon's Fund, Drexel Family Medicine, Drexel Sports Medicine, and the Philadelphia International Cycling Classic. He participated in competitive mountain biking in Canada as well as road racing, but now enjoys recreational cycling.
“The big draw for me in joining Coordinated Health was hearing the story of hearing how the company came to be and grew, developing coordinated care and removing barriers,” said Dr. Salkauskis. “Coordinated Health strives to help the patients but also help the physicians.”
