Dr. Saavedra is a wonderful Doctor. He takes time to listen and does not alarm. Very professional!
in Miami, FL |
Dr. Saavedra is exactly what I want in a Primary Care Physician. He listens well, gives good feedback, is thorough, and makes me feel at ease. He has a great sense of humor and humanity - sharing his mature sense of the human condition. He is not hesitant to request tests as needed and make referrals to specialists when appropriate, but he is not just a traffic cop - writing prescriptions, ordering tests, and referring - like many of his peers. Takes the time to listen to his patients.
