I drove 6 hrs rnd trip for my 9am appt w/ Dr Savage. I have seen him 3 times over 5 yrs. Visits consist of ultrasound to measure size of cyst on my kidney checking for any abnormal growth or shape, urine specimen and physical inspect. I explained I had quite a bit more pain in the last 6 mo. Today, nothing occurred, literal waste of a day of my life! Was told i could schedule an ultrasound at a later time/date. Another trip? No tx. Left feeling trivial & insignificant, a bother to Dr Savage! TX!

The worst bedside manor of any doctor I have ever encountered. I am a bedside nurse and I attended this appointment as a Nurse Advocate for a patient. Dr. Savage was rude, uninterested in listening to the patient, and very unclear with his advice. He offered little to no explanation of the patients condition or treatment plan.
