More about Dr. Alison C Savitz

Welcome to my home page My role as your surgeon I believe that as a physician I am here to help provide you with knowledge and understanding about the disease process, assist you in making treatment choices, and then help treat the problem, when appropriate, with surgery. I like to partner with patients to tackle the problems together. I understand that having surgery is a scary process for both patients and their family, and I like to make the process as comfortable and as smooth as possible. I am a general surgeon and enjoy working on a wide variety of diseases including breast cancer, gallbladder disease, hernias, colon cancers, and diverticulitis. About me I grew up in Washington DC and made my way to California for college at Stanford University and then medical school in Los Angeles. I went back East to Boston for residency because I found a surgical training program at one of the Harvard hospitals which believed medicine should be kind and gentle and that we should treat patients like one would treat a friend. During my surgical training I had the opportunity to get a master's degree in business administration and do health care consulting. The experience allowed me to see the business side of health care, including pharmaceutical companies and a medical device company. The time convinced me how much more I preferred being a surgeon and working and caring for patients. When I finished training after nine years back east, I wanted to return to the warmer climates of California and had the privilege to join Kaiser Permanente in 2003. I came to Kaiser Walnut Creek because I knew I would be able to take care of my patients with the best possible medical care. In addition, I knew I would be working with great physicians, some of whom I trained with and also wonderful staff who care. I am a member of the American College of Surgeons and Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract. When I returned to California, I brought my fiancé with me. We enjoy traveling, hiking, watching movies, and cooking.
