Specialties

  • Addiction Medicine

    An addiction medicine specialist is a doctor who treats patients with addictions to substances like drugs and alcohol or, in some cases, behaviors like gambling. Many of these specialists also treat the diseases that stem from these addictions.
    These physicians are specially trained to prevent and treat the disease of addiction via psychiatric means, or other fields of medicine like family or internal medicine.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Savanin - Brilliant, kind-hearted, goes the extra mile for his patients

Brilliant Psychiatrist and a truly kind man. He has a gift of putting one's worries into a more realistic, and typically a lighter perspective. I love how he thinks and makes me think. He's honest and optimistic, with a clever wit and good humor. He doesn't depend on Rx drugs as the key bio-chemical solution, he focuses on diet and health, and is an expert on diabetes. I can't remember the last time I left an appointment with him, without feeling much better than when I arrived. Yes, he's that good.

Very Good

Dr. Savanin is a very good physician. If you are looking for someone who considers the entire body as a whole and not just behavorial problem as just an issue, this is the doctor to see. He is very big on considering nutrition, excercise, weather and meds as an overall tool to help with underlying physical conditions which would also alter behavorial condition. He is also knowledgeable on other specialists in the metrowest area to help with physical issues. If he's not sure he will not mislead you he will just simply say "I'll look into it and call you." He does call back.
