Dr. Jim Savage is quite the character. I had two visits with him; during the first I waited 1 hour to be seen. His mind jumped all over the place and I could very clearly sense he was rushed. He talks extraordinarily fast so it was difficult to catch information, and he made strange assumptions about my lifestyle to explain my diagnosis. What was positive was that in my follow up appointment, he did go through and explain each of my test results one by one, which was both interesting and clarifying. Unfortunately these explanations were sprinkled with very off putting statements like "fall a few times and you'll die" "With this diagnosis, over time you'd definitely die" etc. He also started a tangential conversation about why humans should have tails, and why Chinese websites are clearly superior. What really topped the whole thing off was going to the pharmacy the following day to pick up my medication, finding out the prescription had never been sent by the nurse, and frantically calling the doctor to fax it over. I asked if it had been an accident or problem with the hardware. No. Silly me. The staff just never sent it. In summary, Dr. Jim Savage is an overbooked doctor with a disorganized staff. He is clearly intelligent, but his bedside manner needs to be improved before I would ever recommend someone to him.

Found to be unprofessional. OK if urgent appointment needed but if you are looking for a long term primary care doc - look elsewhere

Dr. Savage was great, he was very knowledgeable and provided an in depth explanation of everything. He quickly diagnosed me and made me feel comfortable that he knew what he was doing based on the detailed explanations he provided. He's also a pretty unique guy and interesting to talk to.

He was extremely unprofessional, late, and was unable to come up with a diagnosis (alongside being somewhat rude.) Worst experience I've had with a doctor to date.

Had to wait over an hour but as soon as I met Jim I understood why. Very caring and funny man. Took the time to explain my medical issue in detail as well as wax philosophical about politics and biology. Will definitely be sticking with him - I just hope the wait wont be so long next time.

DR savage was great. However I waited 45 minutes for 5 min with him. I made very clear on the phone that I was tight for time, was told it would be 10-15 min when I arrived and was continually told "just 10 more min" until lo and behold it was 45 min later and I was ushered in the room to wait for him.

Dr Savage is really funny, and more importantly, his breadth of knowledge is huge. Really appreciate his care. Only downside is occasional long waits.

I went in for a flu shot, and wasn't even sure if Dr Savage was in to answer some other questions I had. The whole experience was fine, but there was an icy vibe in the office. This is definitely an office for tourists who are sick, and I would not recommend as a normal doctors visit. Also they had a ton of paperwork for me to fill out even though I was just getting a shot and nothing else. Over all a very "meh" experience. Would go back for a flu shot but nothing more.

Conflicted, the doctor is very nice, insightful, and helpful. He provides good advice and doesn't make you take and do take unnecessary meds or do unnecessary procedures, so he has my trust there. However, my wait time was over an hour and judging by the other reviews, it seems to be a systemic issue.

He was great, but honestly I waited about an hour before getting a room and then another 10-15 in the room. He was smart, funny, knowledgeable, and kind but the wait was obnoxious.

Very unprofessional. Office called 45 minutes before appointment to say that doctor was going to be one hour late to the appointment. Doctor had terrible bedside manner. Office staff was rude and not efficient at communicating with doctor or patient. Worst of all, the bathroom was outside of the office down the hall and up the stairs. In order to submit a urine sample, one must carry their sample through the halls outside of the office and through the lobby without any privacy.

Dr. Savage was a really great man and made my doctor's visit much more interesting. Though I waited a little longer than I would have liked, it is a doctor's office so that is a given. Dr. Savage walked me through my allergy issues and gave me tips and tricks to making my life easier. Visiting this doctor's office was like going back to school: Dr. Savage really made sure I understood what was wrong with me and explained preventive measures thoroughly. His receptionist was very kind also and printed out all the instructions and recommendations in case I did not remember everything I was told. Dr. Savage definitely took his time with me to make sure I got the most of my appointment. I will definitely be coming back :)

Would not recommend Dr. Savage and will never be going back -- 1.5 hr wait when I was the only patient, seemingly lack of knowledge on the condition for which I was seeing him, and almost incomprehensible diatribes that were unrelated to my questions

He's a bit unconventional but friendly. He took the time to explain things and emphasized preventative care, which I appreciated. It was a longer exam than I expected, but I liked that he was thorough. His office didn't do any follow ups with me though, which I would have liked since he asked me to take several tests.
