Dr Savage did my cataract surgery and I experienced no discomfort or complications... It was as easy as getting my teeth cleaned :-) :-) Plus he's a very pleasant and charming doctor.

Dr. Savage is an " Excellent Doctor". His patience, poise and extreme professionalism has kept me with Kaiser. Dr. Savage is so caring that he makes his cell phone available to receive calls from patients who are deemed as critical care patients. He even, makes house calls after surgery. I have much more information to share about this " God Given Doctor, but space is limited. If by chance, he should leave Kaiser, I cannot guarantee that I would remain. I appreciate his services !!!

Dr. Savage is the greatest. He explained what to expect with my surgery to the fullest and then asked if I had any, any questions. When I had a slight problem he responded to me ASAP. I certainly would recommend him to anyone I know -- he is that good of a doctor, warm, sincere, and knows his business. The only other thing I would add is the long wait time but this is not Dr. Savage fault. But maybe Kaiser could improve the wait time.

Dr. Savage and his excellent staff -- professionalism at it's best! Erased all my fears and kept me informed through the entire procedure.
in Gambrills, MD |
I Prayed for someone like Dr. Savage to do my surgery.I told him that I was 79 years old and had never had surgery before. Dr. Savage set my heart at ease. From the moment I entered the Surgical wing, all fear left me. As he proceeded with the surgery, he told me everything he was doing. He really has a wonderful personality and showed much love and caring for me. I have been telling everyone how well I am doing. Of course, I give all Praise to God for such a wonderful man.
