One of the most arrogant and condescending doctors I have ever come across in my 45 years of existence. How this man is a doctor is beyond me - one should learn manners prior to working with patients. I had a friend come to my appointment with me and we were in shock. The rest of the staff was great. Adding insult to injury a patient relations from the office called me to find out what happened (and obviously do nothing about it). Steer clear from this doctor.

Dr. Savage is an extremely caring and knowlegable surgeon. I was afraid i'd never find another good orthopedic when I moved here but now, i feel secure that I'm a patient of his. His office staff is caring and professional and cares about their patients too. Thank You, Dr. Savave.

After two knee replacements with little pain and no complications, I unreservedly recommend Dr. Savage and the entire support staff @ TX Orthopedics.

Dr Savage has treated me for 2 separate & unrelated injuries (knee/ankle, and shoulder) with the highest level of care, knowledge, professionalism, experience, and respect. I will recommend Dr Savage to anyone looking for an outstanding Orthopedic Surgeon.

I broke my right leg 12/30/3016 which was a traumatic event requiring me to go to the ER. When it was time to see an Orthopedic Surgeon I saw Dr. Savage. He was compassionate and caring. I was a mess emotionally and he really helped calm me down. He explained the course of treatment and I have healed accordingly. He ordered home Physical Therapy, assistive devices, and appropriate pain meds. It is now early April and I am healing well and starting to exercise again. Dr. Savage is 1st class! CM
Thank you Cathy! We are so happy to hear you are doing well after surgery.

Terrible. He talked to me like I was a 12 year old child and accused me of going in to just get pain pills. I hate pain pills and I told the Doctor who referred me I don't want them. I'm going to hand the rest of the bottle of pills back to them when I go in again. They did not help the pain. He was very rude an said that he knows my type insinuating I was just trying to get drugs from him. He also told me I have severe degenerative disc disease and did not explain the condition to me,
