Dr Ingmar Lindström
Dr Lindström has been working as a family physician for 15+ years in Finland and in Estonia. He also has some years of experience as an Internal Medicine resident in Finland. In his career, he has been going above and beyond to be able to help people, being the founder of several primary care clinics in both Finland and Estonia. With his passion for health and bettering people’s lives, he has made an important impact on the communities around him.
He jumped on board with Salu because of the positive effect he saw in the startup’s purpose. Proficiency in teamwork and the potential of Salu is what got him hooked in the first place. From the outside, Salu might seem to be just another digital/telehealth platform, but the opportunity to help the ones struggling the most, as they have not been able to find a suitable local health center, adds an important element to the whole purpose and delivery of services.
For a foreigner away from home, Salu might end up being the go-to channel to receive timely and affordable medical help in a language understandable to them. Health concerns without a proper help system can be very stressful and draining. Expats around the world are facing similar issues and a simple solution to offer even the most basic level of medical care is important to them and their families. So any sign of hope at the end of a tunnel is important to people. That is why Dr Lindström sees great value and potential in Salu’s future.
Dr Maria Pintsaar
We are excited to introduce you to one of Salu’s doctors – Maria Pintsaar. She has an extensive medical background, graduating from Tartu’s University and going through a long medical residency in Finland and in Estonia. During medical studies, she worked as a nurse in the intensive care department and as an assistant doctor in a health care centre. In addition to the work with hospital patients, she has also worked in outpatient clinics all over Finland, which set her up with a good perspective of both, in- and-outpatient settings.
Fun fact about Maria – her curiosity and interest in radiology and neurology led her to participate in National Student Contest, winning the second prize with her study “Radiological studies and the clinical course of ischemic stroke in patients who underwent thrombolysis”. Study results were published in the National Medical paper called “Eesti Arst”.
Maria joined Salu’s team in 2022, where she has been consulting patients and helping them find solutions to their health problems. She thinks that Salu in an extremely valuable platform, not just for people who need help, but also for hospitals. There are thousands of patients in Finland and Estonia who do not know where to turn to with their health-related concerns. They often end up in emergency departments with problems that could easily be addressed at an outpatient clinic. By doing so they increase hospitals’ workload, a problem that can be easily avoided by providing them with qualified primary care. The need for a platform like Salu is definitely increasing in the foreseeable future.

That includes work in an emergency room, family healthcare, and private clinics.
