Important Announcements

Desired Medical solutions uses a patient-centered approach to medicine. Most importantly, how is it different?



There is a zero wait time for our practice! As a result of a more personalized approach and enrolling only limited number of patients, appointments are the actual time you will received medical care.   Our office provides a welcoming atmosphere, as we believe a holistic approach encompasses all aspects of the care experience.

Variety of Services

We offer a variety of services ranging from medical weight loss, hormone pellets, acupuncture, and more!.  Both Dr. Edward Salib and Dr. Allison Salib are Board Certified physicians in their respective specialties.    

Holistic Approach

Desired Medical Solutions is unique in implementing a holistic approach to medicine.  Dr. Allison Salib has extensive training and experience in medical and cosmetic acupuncture.  Dr. Salib’s expertise in collaboration with traditional medicine can help you achieve optimal health with less medications.

There is no size fits all method to healthcare.   The reality is every patient is different.   How can two different individuals opt for the same treatment if they have different goals? Dr. Salib understands that some of his patients are more interested in an integrative medicine approach.  This is why acupuncture and functional medicine were integrated in the practice!  Come experience the difference!

No Health Insurance Necessary

Desired Medical Solutions does not accept insurance. Our services go above and beyond what the typical health insurance plan will cover.  This includes compounded weight loss medications which can save you $100s of dollars in addition to acupuncture treatments which are not covered by insurance.  We encourage all our patients to carry a catastrophic health insurance plan, but it is not a requirement.  If you do not have health insurance, we have arrangements with certain vendors in the community to provide you discounts to ensure your healthcare is accessible and affordable.   Call our office to learn more.

$0 Copays

There are never any copays associated with any kind of visit. Therefore, paying a copay will never be prohibitive to accessing care at our practice.  This is because our patients have already paid a fee to join the practice, and there are no additional fees unless additional labs or imaging is required.

I went to Desired Medical Solutions to lose weight. Dr. Salib has been extremely professional and under his care I have lost 15 pounds in 2 weeks. I was never able to achieve this kind of results with any other diet program I have tried.

I stumbled across Dr Salib on a Facebook group post and I couldn’t be happier that I did. I had struggled with fatigue, brain fog and anxiety for months, and when I met Dr Salib, I could tell he genuinely cared. He heard my cry for help and has patiently tested and tried things to find what works for me. He’s truly a Godsend.

Since starting with Dr. Salib at Desired Medical Solutions, I have lost weight and calmed my peri-menopause symptoms. Best of all my energy level has increased substantially. I feel like a new person. I would recommend Desired Medical Solutions to anyone who wants to lose weight effectively.(Semagluditde + B12 injection has been awesome for me.) With Dr. Salib you have the benefit of professional healthcare, easy scheduling and thorough appointments without feeling rushed.

Dr Salib is personable, a great listener, and empathetic to my concerns as a patient. Together we are working to meet my weight loss goals. I’m using Ozempic and I’ve lost 12 pounds in 3 weeks. I would definitely recommend Dr Salib to friends and family.

Dr Salib is wonderful. He has helped me so much in bringing my weight down. I have struggled for many years trying to do it alone. I’m just a short time I’ve lost a significant amount. He is kind and attentive and I highly recommend him.

Dr. Salib is my primary Doctor as well as my dietician. He has helped me tremendously as well as my wife. He is very fast at returning calls and follows up everytime to make sure I'm doing ok. I highly recommend him, he is very thorough at finding any issues that exist and treating the problem not the symptom. Thank you Dr Salib. Benson
