Dr. Saavedra has cared for me and my children over the last 12 years and I could not have been luckier when I chose her as our primary caregiver. She listens and cares. She is thorough and takes her time to explain everything (diagnosis, test results, medication...) She follows up and I truly feel that she cares for the well being of my family. I enthusiatically recommend her to everyone.

wonderful

She is just superb as is her team. She always makes time to answer my questions, goes the extra mile and listens to ALL my concerns...even if they are crazy sounding. Someone recommended me to her, and I'm always recommending her to my friends and family. Plus she just has the caring nurturing spirit that so many other docs just lack.
