Shelley Salpeter, MD, FACP

I am an experienced home care and hospice physician offering concierge-level attention without the cost. I provide care for homebound patients in their homes and in assisted living communities throughout San Mateo County.

My team, including two doctors and an LVN, specializes in geriatric and palliative care, with 24-hour nursing support by phone. I work with all home health agencies, and accept a range of insurance.

My patients who enroll in Mission Hospice’s Transitions program also have access to volunteer support.
