Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I am 81 and have lived with moderate to severe lumbar and cervical spine pain for 30 years. For eight years I have been under Dr. Savala’s medical care for pain management. The doctor’s extensive experience with pain control and the range of interventions on which he can draw have given me a new life with much less pain. MRI’s of my lower back confirmed excessive degeneration of the disc spaces from vertebrae L3 to S1. Several appointments and lengthy consultations with neuro surgeons over 10 years resulted in recommendations of spinal fusion surgery with what I have come to understand were unrealistically optimistic forecasts of success. Spinal fusion surgery will be my absolute last resort if all other interventions fall short on pain relief. We experimented with spinal injections which were marginally effective for pain relief from one to three months. Dr. Savala also prescribed low doses of Hydrocodone which is now one of the four cornerstones in my pain control regimen

Dr. Savala saved my life. My former neurosurgeon left several pieces of bone in my spinal cord for several months, thus ending my career as a board certified prosthodontist, in San Francisco. Dr. Savala is absolutely on the “cutting edge” of his field. It took a few years, however Dr. Savala was able to recommend medical protocols that allowed me to work part-time in a local San Francisco hospital for eight years. He is an excellent listener, diagnostician with cutting edge recommendations.
