Patient Comments (3)
in Fairfax, VA |
I would very much recommend Dr. Savoca to anyone considering a colonoscopy. His demeanor is caring and professional. Before the colonoscopy procedure I met with him in his office for a consultation and was pleased with his concern and patience in answering all my questions. His in-office staff is very accommodating and answers questions promptly and fully. In the procedure area every member of Dr. Savoca's team performed professionally, courteously, and with respect to any apprehension I had.

Dr Savoca fit me in on short notice for needed colon surgery. I could not be happier with his office, his demeanor, his surgical technique or any part of his care of me. He spe.nt as much time with me and my wife as we wanted. Very reassuring
in Mc Lean, VA |
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.
