Thumbs up!

Dr. Savage is totally compassionate, caring, and makes EACH patient feel like they are his ONLY patient... He's always there when needed whether it's at the office or on the telephone. He answers questions and explains every step of the treatment process with compassion and concern for the patient's individuality, concerns, fears, etc. I was truly BLESSED to be put in his care.....while he is a true professional, he communicates on a non-alienating, human level...he treats you with tremendous care and consideration and will stop at nothing to be sure you get the attention you need...

He's My Favorite of all my Cancer Doctors!

This is a doctor who really cares !! He personally made phones to check on me or to arrange his own appointments. I could not have asked for a more compassionate and understanding oncologist. Here's a doctor who doesn't mind women crying; he stays in the room.He doesn't high tail it like more doctors when they see tears. I truly trust Dr. Savage. If it wasn't for his persistence, I would not have gone through with the radiation. He'll be there when you need him!
