    Brentwood, CA |
    A well run practice with no waiting time. Both Dr Savage and his assistant Zach are thorough and take care to explain things in detail. They are keen on using OTC medications to help with things like reducing triglycerides and bad cholestral before prescribing medications. My pathology has improved dramatically under their care and now get an A+ rating regularly.
