Born and raised in Manhattan, Dr. Judy Salz earned her AB in psychology from Barnard College, Columbia University and received her M.D. from the Woman’s Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1969. She completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, then moved west for a fellowship in adolescent medicine at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles. She joined the Southern California Permanente Medical Group and practiced internal medicine there as a partner from 1972-2001. After retiring from primary care, she moved to Las Vegas. She is a member of the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American College of Physicians. Only partially retired, Judy is currently active in clinical research.
While her career has been predominantly left-brained, Judy has always filled her free time with artistic pursuits. She is an avid oil painter, singer, and, most recently, author/writer. Her first novel, “Worthy”, was published in 2017. She is currently working on her second novel. Since her move to Las Vegas, she has divided her days among her work, time with her married daughter, and as a member of the Las Vegas Master Singers – the chorus-in-residence of the Las Vegas Philharmonic.
