*Dr. Savage is WONDERFUL!

3/27/2017

I know this is about Dr. Savage, but his fellow Dr. Lycan is a very thorough provider as well. He really seems to care about his patient. He is quite precise and explains medical matters to you in terms that you will understand. He is very earnest and you can tell he wants to do things correctly the first time. I have been very impressed with this team, their sense of urgency, and efficiency regarding my condition.

3/21/2017

He was very patient, caring, clear and thorough. I felt educated about CT scans and how they are used, and that I may not want as many to be done on a regular basis. he explained the X-ray exposure versus a chest x-ray. In the future I would do well to let the experts in each field interpet findings.

3/7/2017

All were very helpful.

3/3/2017

We are very involved in our Dad's care. We are made to feel like we should not be asking questions. Last time answers were given to us in harsh & loud voice. We just quit asking.

Dr. Savage is a true Mensch :-)

7/23/2016

I consider myself very fortunate to have Dr. Savage as my oncologist. He has treated me in this capacity since 2003, so I have had many opportunities to observe his impeccable manner with me as a patient, his ability to explain complicated cancer illnesses and treatments in a straightforward and understandable way, and his genuine concern for the welfare of his patients.

6/8/2016
