The waiting time is sometimes Very long, but Dr. Saway is worth the wait. He is very good at his specialty. He gives time to his patients. He is best when he isn't too tired, so I recommend morning or early afternoon. I am being treated for an auto-immune disorder and would choose him as the most knowledgeable of my doctors.

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.
