I couldn't ask for a better doctor. I am grateful Dr. Savage is my doctor.




The Care Provider I am fortunate to have is easy to talk to, explains any questions I have, listens to anything I want to talk about such as how I am feeling and I really appreciate that. I feel comfortable and am grateful to have such a knowledgeable and caring doctor.


I like Dr. Savage and his manner of stating the information that was needed.


Dr. Savage has been my care provider for metastatic melanoma since 2003. My experience with him has always been excellent.


very good


Dr. Savage has been my care provider for metastatic melanoma since 2003. If I were not entirely satisfied with the kind of care he gives and the concern he shows, I would have changed providers before now.


Good Dr., takes time to explain things.


dr. Savage is very thorough and explaining very patient and understanding


*Dr. Savage is WONDERFUL!


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.


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.


All were very helpful.


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.


Very professional, very personable just a great doctor.




It was not a bad experience.
