Very thorough, pleasant and caring. Both he and his staff take the time to educate you and address your concerns.

I have been in treatment with Dr. Saavedra for roughly around 6-7 years now. His attack on my conditions was very effective. The procedures and medications he prescribed for me DID work !! He referred me for bariatric surgery, + I have had great success with it. Lost most of my weight; It has resulted in my type2 diabetes being --reversed--, + he also took me off most of my medications ! I no longer have need of any cholesterol pill, but guess I'll always need slow-thyroid to be monitored.

Dr. Saavedra is a very accomplished and caring professional. He is up to speed on the latest medications available and has a working knowledge of natural supplements and an openness to recommend them when appropriate. Although I am generally in good health, I have struggle with my weight since becoming a patient of Dr. Saavedra's. Recently, he recommended a medication to me that has been just the support vehicle I needed to provide significant results.
