      Dr Savoca is great. he takes his time listening to you and i had a procedure done and since he did the procedure at the Fairfax Hospital I have no more pain., i will highly recommend Dr Savoca. I have to say I went to other Doctors before trusting my care to Dr. Savoca and Happy I did.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Savoca's Care Philosophy

      I treat all paitents as if they are family. I also seek to know something about each patient personally and reveal aspects of myself so that a common ground is found. I also use humor appropriately to put patients at ease when dealing with life threatening or embarassing conditions.
