Szalontay, Tibor, MD


I have more than 30 years of specialist experience. I have learned to cooperate with my patients and, with trust, hard work and knowledge, I and my patients can restore their condition to how it was before the problem. We always choose wisely, meaning that we choose the safest and the best way of treating. We try to solve the problem with conservative medicine when it is possible; we consider the possibilities of surgery, if it is inevitable.
