I was able to get in to see Dr Savoie within a few days of my request for an appointment. He explained my condition and need for surgery of a complete AC joint separation. A few days later I was in surgery and ten days later I am back riding and jumping the horses. He has saved my career.

He's absolutely the BEST!!!

My first appointment was 7-22-2019 with Dr. Savoie. A friend of mine recommended him, he was her surgeon about 10 years earlier. In 2012 I was diagnosed with stage 4 breast and lung cancer and as of today, after all treatment at M.D. Anderson I am cancer free. My bones have suffered greatly due to massive amounts of chemotherapy, high doses of steroids and six weeks of radiation. I needed a GREAT doctor to keep my deteriorating right arm and chest area in good condition, choosing Dr. Savoie was a true blessing. He is intelligent, caring and truly interested in keeping me mobile AND getting my bones back in better health. His team is SUPER WONDERFUL, from the appointment desk to the checkout and scheduling my next appointment. If you are truly looking for the BEST doctor and his FABULOUS TEAM to help with your injured or damaged body.....DR. Savoie IS THE BEST.

Dr. Savoie did 2 revisions on some pretty brutal elbow injuries of mine. I happened upon Dr. Savoie because another surgeon could not fix my elbow. Now that Dr. Savoie has completed two complicated revisions on my elbows I am on the mend. He has the best bedside manner, understood how defeated I was by having to have a total of 4 major surgeries in 2 years, and puts up with my paranoia at the first sign that something could possibly be wrong. Dr. Savoie is an ortho magician. Thank you, Doc!

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!
