Dr. Savage is AMAZING ??. He did right hip replacement & i no longer had that horrific pain after surgery. Just had temporary pain from the surgery. Went through physical therapy through his office & recovered. I started walking normal again. Dr. Savage is a Godsend & has not only taken excellent care of me but other family members as well. ??

Dr. Savage is very conservative with his treatment plans for patients. I have been his patient for 10 years now and he has always been very clear on my condition and what I can expect. He's helped me postpone TKR for years with the treatments he's prescribed. Fast forward 10 years from my first meeting and I would not trust anyone else to perform my TKR. Reading some of the reviews I feel as though people have unrealistic expectations and perceptions about doctors. No person on this earth is in a good mood every day. No doctor has a magic wand that will make your troubles disappear overnight. Electronic medical records make your history visible to doctors and pharmacists. If you're looking for a quick fix, see another doctor. If you're chasing pain meds, see another doctor. If you want to have an endless stream of medical bills, see another doctor. If you want quality healthcare by an experienced and ethical doctor and no nonsense then Dr. Savage is the doctor you sh

Dr David Savage performed a right total hip replacement on me on May 7, 2020. By the 10th (three days later) I was walking without any assistive devices and only experiencing mild discomfort from time to time. Dr Savage prepared me preoperatively for what to expect postoperatively. By two weeks post op, I was driving and walking independently. Dr Savage’s pain management was excellent. He wanted me walking, doing my exercises from PT, and keeping my dressing clean and dry except for showers, where I would just pat my dressing dry. I can’t tell you how lucky I feel that Dr Savage was my surgeon. He knows joint replacements and consistently educates himself on improvements in technique and equipment. I am totally satisfied!

Nice doctor but too conservative seems to be for insurance not the patient. Ended up having my pcp to have a MRI done which Dr Savage didn't think was needed. Come to find out I had a labrum tear.cuff tear ,impingement clavicle issue ana couple other things. I'll probly find another doctor to help. But I'm first gone show him this but will probly find someone else to help me

I don't like posting negative reviews but what happened was so awful, I can't let it pass. I came to see Dr. Savage for an injury & wish I had not! The first visit with him was fine. I was very nice to him but I sensed he was in a bad mood. The second visit with him was the worst! He was very rude & condescending with me! I'm not sure what brought that on. A doctor in training was also in the room with us & I was very embarrassed! I'm not sure what is going on in his life but he shouldn't have taken it out on me. My husband & I were shocked & appalled at his attitude especially since I said nothing wrong! Dr. Savage is the worst most unprofessional doctor I have ever met! The whole experience shook me up for a long time. You need help Dr. Savage! Overall, worst horrible experience with a doctor!

Excellent advice and procedure for draining knee and giving a cortisone shot. Immediate relief from swollen knee. He was flexible by seeing other patients while I was trying to phone Tekton to get input on the trial that I am in. I have been seeing Dr Savage for over 3 years.
