    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,
