      I loved that he took the time to explain things to me about my health in a way I could understand. I also loved that they could do their own lab work and xrays in the office.

      First appointment and was very impressed. Entire staff fantastic and dr Saway is superb
      in Birmingham, AL |
      Dr. Saway is one of the finest physicians I've ever dealt with and unfortunately I have seen many. He is kind and compassionate and always treats me the way he would a member of his own family. When he discovered I had Lupus he told me he will advise me the same way he would his wife. He is goes beyond the standard level of care and always delivers tough news in a gentle way. He and his staff also worked diligently to get me the financial aide to get my biologic medication Medicaid didn't cover.
