    Patient Comments (3)
    Dr Savoie is an amazing and caring person! He can diagnose your probmles almost to a T just by examining you! I had 4 things I had to have repaired and over a year later I am doing great! Him and his staff will answer you back quickly also! He spent time with me and explained everything everytime I went to see him! I wish he could do my knee surgery that I now need too! I have recommended him to many! He is the only doctor I would have ever allowed to do that surgery on me!

    He can accurately diagnose more from a simple physical exam on your shoulder (taking about two minutes) than most arthropods and radiologists can deduce from a contrast MRI. FABULOUS diagnostician; UNERRING surgeon. If you have a shoulder problem, this is the only surgeon you should let near you. If you are a medical student, this is the man you want to train you. Affable, modest, friendly. I've sent dozens of friends and family members to him, and all have been thrilled with their treatment

    Dr. Savoie did a nerve release surgery a month ago. He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable. I trust Dr. Savoie 110% with any medical advice he gives me. He was able to relieve the severe pain that I lived with for over 2 years and I will forever be thankful! His staff are quick to respond to everything. His office truly is a one stop shop. Scheduling an initial appointment to get in is quite a wait but you have to wait for the best shoulder surgeon! They will see you immediately for emergencies though!
