Have you seen Dr. Robert Savala?
Posted on April 27th, 2017
Dr. Savala seems fine but his 'office" i.e. receptionist is rude and impossible to get anywhere with. I finally gave up on getting another appointment as after 5 calls and no callbacks, I felt it wasn't worth it!
Excellent doctor, both in his medical field and "bedside manner".

This guys the best of the best! No wonder they send me from the peninsula into the city to see the guy. It is worth the trouble!

There's simply no one better than Robert Savala. Period. The first time I saw him he spent almost an HOUR talking with me! Kind, extremely competent, unpretentious or "stuffy," and Deirdre, his office manager is equally so. I wouldn't THINK of going anywhere else for spinal epidurals. And I've had 23 surgeries and at least a dozen or more spinal injections.

Dr. Savala is an exceptional doctor that knows what he is doing. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

After 23 surgeries stemming from professional cycling competition racing and training, I had extensive damage to my spine. Seven unsuccessful operations later Dr. Savala was the ONLY physician that accurately pin-pointed the exact vertebral level producing bi-lateral trochanteric bursitis, and the posterior, bi-lateral femoral radiculopathy to the distal juncture of the polpliteal fossa. Had it not been for his incredible diligence, care, intuition, scientific expertise I'd probably still be in debilitating, excruciating pain requiring massive amounts of methadone and a ton of ancillary medication. He and his staff are ineffably and entirely in a realm unique to them all. He is unequivocally THE best anesthesiologist I've ever worked with and believe me I've seen at least 10+.

As a lower back pain sufferer for 8+ years, and after seeing two other orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Savala is the one for me. He is direct, upfront, and extremely competent. I recommend his medical service without hesitation. He helped me with my L5/S1 pain via a facet rhizotomy procedure.
