Dr Savage and his whole team have made my experience a positive one. After enduring great pain and partial immobility-- my surgery was a fine success. I have been treated with dignity and kindness. I would highly recommend Dr Savage and his entire staff to my friends, family and basically anyone I had an opportunity to explain the difference in my "before and after" interaction with Dr Savage. I am grateful that I was referred to such a fine caring team of professionals!!!!

Both my husband & I have used P. Savage for our knees, he makes sure you understand everything he is telling you, he is available 24/7 to help or answer questions. Dr. Savage has called both of us on our cell phones on a weekend to check in on us after our procedures. I would not have let anyone else do my knee replacement! Dr. Savage was recommended to us by our friend who is a Chiropractor, he send his patients to him if he can't help them. Turned out, our family Dr used Savage too.
