Dr. Savoie III Says:

It is always an honor to be chosen by a patient to try to help fix their shoulder or elbow.  Although i am not 100% successful, I can promise 100% effort to try to improve their condition,whatever the current status.  I truly feel Blessed to be able to help anyone, and also am completely crushed when I fail to help improve my patients condition. 

Thank you to all who come to visit
