Salins MD

Conemaugh Physician Group – Neurology is pleased to welcome Dr. Salomi Salins, board certified in Psychiatry and Neurology, to the care team.

Dr. Salins says her own life experiences led her to choose a career in neurology. “My mom had Parkinson’s Disease at a young age,” says Dr. Salins. “Growing up I saw firsthand the impact neurological diseases have on patients and their families. This really helps me relate to my patients and understand what they are going through.” Dr. Salins' older sister is also a neurologist. “There is a little competition in the family,” jokes Dr. Salins.

A graduate of Rajiv Gandhi Medical College in Kalwa, Thane, Maharashtra, India, Dr. Salins went on to complete an Internal Medicine internship at the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, where she also completed a Residency in Neurology and served as Chief Resident. Dr. Salins is fellowship trained in Clinical Neurophysiology, EMG and Epilepsy.

One of Dr. Salins' passions is helping people with epilepsy, the nation’s fourth most common neurological disorder. “I am really looking forward to working with epilepsy patients in the region,” says Dr. Salins. “There are many people with epilepsy who will benefit from having additional resources available to them.”

Dr. Salins grew up in Bombay, the most populous city in India. She is thrilled to be living in a more rural region and looking forward to having four seasons to enjoy. It was the people, however, that truly led her to call the Johnstown region home. “People here are so open and friendly. I feel very welcome and can’t wait to get started seeing patients.”

Dr. Salins will be seeing patients at Conemaugh Physician Group – Neurology in the Conemaugh East Hills location, 1450 Scalp Avenue. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 814-269-5211.
