Dr. Savitz took great care of me when I experienced displaced ribs in my upper right side. He quickly worked me in to see him even though he had a full patient schedule the day of my appointment. He was kind and gentle because I was in tremendous pain. With his help and a prescription for PT I began to feel better quickly. Dr Savitz is a very knowledgeable physician and I was helped by his expertise with my condition.
