Very professional and friendly. I will recommend him to my friends and relatives without hesitation.
Dr, Saavedra is a really concerned and helpful individual. He does not exhibit the aloofness or arrogance of some doctors. I have been to his practice several times and each time left with the same opinion as well as a remedy for my ailment. I would rate him way better than most, and would not hesitate to recommend him to a friend.
Interested, asked questions, gave me good information, appears to be a kind doctor

Dr. Saavedra is knowledgeable, professional, and took his time with me to make sure I was informed.
Always happy with the care and professionalism of this facility and staff.
Actually listened to me! Was very helpful
All staff friendly & courteous.
Doctor was not extremely friendly and I was not advised that testing would be so pricey. My bill was much higher than I had anticipated.
Straightforward with models to help illustrate his explanations.
Was in the waiting area for only for about 15 mins the doctor saw me in less than 30 mins after in the meantime nurse took my vitals & performed tests which seemed like the doctor went to see me right after being called back. Staff is very informative and professional.
He was great, really listened to my current and gave good options
I've seen Dr. Saavedra for two years now. He is absolutely the best in the valley. Highly recommend
He was very patient and listened to all of my symptoms. He was thorough in his allergy testing. He also made some good recommendations and referrals for my condition.
Dr. Saavedra was great! Very knowledgeable and took the time to discuss all of my symptoms and options with me. The staff and everyone that I interacted with were also very friendly and helpful. The office has an overall welcoming atmosphere and I will definitely be recommending Dr. Saavedra in the future!
The wait was short to be seen and the girl who did vitals was very nice. The Dr came in and didn't introduce himself, didn't really even seem to care to be at work today. I went in for allergy testing but was told it needed to be run through my insurance first (why they didn't do that before my appointment I'm not sure) so I left with a prescription for a steroid for inflammation and a nasal spray sample. I was told if I didn't hear back within a week to give them a call. The whole encounter was weird and I won't be going back.
Dr. Saavedra really took his time to ask questions to diagnose the cause of the allergic reaction. This is an honest review, and he is highly recommended!
I could not have had a better experience Quick appointment, amazing staff, wonderful doctor. So grateful to be working with him!
Really understanding, really knowledgeable, and willing to help.
Great Doctor and Office. Very nice and friendly. No wait time. I would reccommned.
Very pleased with the services provided and care given.
I was extremely pleased with my appointment. The entire staff were very friendly, helpful, and professional. Dr.Saavedra gave me his complete attention and time needed for my appointment.
I had my reservations with this office after I received a bumbling message from the receptionist I guess she was, she sounded really unorganized and unsure of what I wanted although I entered what I needed in the ZocDoc appointment. That was a bad sign. When I got there the nurse was nice, then I guess I met the girl on the voicemail because she was unorganized, asked me for my social again after I had already put it in the paperwork. The appointment went well, the nurse and the doctor were great, very informative and made my 3 year old feel comfortable. Back to the receptionist, I went to pay at the end I just stood there for a few minutes and she had someone on hold and on speaker on one phone while she was talking to another person on the other, the person on speaker said hello a few times she picked up while the other phone was to her ear and asked them to hold still... Then she acknowledged I was ready to just pay and leave and she took payment. I loved the experience aside from the receptionist, very all over the place.
Dr. Saveedra is very good in his specialty and with my son. My son is comfortable with him and has done well with his food allergies because of his diligence and education, when I was judged and told he was having bowel issues before. I was shocked to learn he was allergic to so much, but we have adjusted well.
Dr. Saaedra is so kind! He made sure to stay with me until I had a full understanding of the test and the results.
He was great. Very patient and very thorough with me.
Dr. Saavendra was able to provide answers and immediate relief to our son's asthma problems that he has struggled with for years. We noticed an immediate difference in him the same day. Very pleased with his assessment, recommendations and personal attention and we look forward to continuing to work closely with him.
Dr. Mike was excellent. He listened carefully and explained things well. Great doctor that took his time with my son and made sure all questions were answered. Nice staff too!
I have been very impressed by Dr. Saavedra. He is very professional and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
Monica & Dr. Saavedra were absolutely good in explaining and handling my allergy problem. I was given a prescription for a special nose spray. I used it twice the first day and awoke in the morning feeling 30% better.
Happy with the diagnosis and insight on what steps to take to treat random hive breakouts.
As usual, Dr. S took great care of my daughter! He and his staff make it fun, thorough and educate us.
very professional and the staff were welcoming and good at what they do...
He was very thorough and kind- gave great advice for follow up!
Wonderful Doctor. Very kind, thorough and knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time with us and approached our situation with common sense. I highly recommend him. I love ZocDoc and that this Doctor uses technology to make my life easier. I was able to setup a same day appointment and review the Doctors credentials. Wonderful!!
Great. Had allergy testing done in preparation for RUSH immunotherapy.
I went in for my allergy testing today and I was nervous. The nurses and staff were amazing! They were positive and encouraging. They were also very knowledgeable. I am grateful that I chose to come here.

Very thorough, especially with my 5 month old who tested positive for peanut allergies!
Dr. Saavedra was kind and professional, and he really seems to know what he's talking about. I appreciated his candor and that he didn't talk down to me. His colleague Monica was likewise very good when she administered an allergy test on me.
Dr. Saavedra was awesome! His staff was also great! They got me in right away, he took plenty of time with me and made sure I understood everything and answered all questions I had. I couldn't have had a better experience. I would highly recommend Dr Saavedra and his staff! Thank you.
Very attentive, nice and addressed all my concerns. Would recommend.
THANKS FOR A GREAT FRIENDLY PROMPT AND PROFESSIONAL VISIT. WE HEARD THINGS ABOUT ALLERGIES AND ASTHMA THAT WE HAD NEVER HEARD OR CONSIDERED BEFORE. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AGAIN IN THE HOPE OF CURBING OUR DEPENDANCY ON MEDS AND IMPROVING OUR LUNGS. MANY THANKS!
He is very thorough and spent a lot of time with us
Very detailed examination and a diagnose.
I resist visiting the doctor's office. They give me the creeps. Since I move around, the process of finding a doctor I trust is daunting. But I had a hive breakout that was lasting longer than normal, accompanied by other symptoms that made me concerned. I'm happy to report that I called Dr. Saavedra first and his receptionist Lindsey was by far the most personable of the three offices I called. I pay out of pocket - they weren't evasive about pricing. I originally tried to make the appointment for the same day but he was booked. When he had a cancellation come up, Lindsey got a hold of me to let me know do I could come in. They saw me right away once I checked in, and had me out the door with a prescription and a daunting list of allergies in 30 minutes. I recommend this office to everyone! I'm always worried I'll walk away from the doc feeling scammed, but I didn't here!
It was very good, informative. Dr. Saavedra was thorough, helpful and answered any questions I had. Easy to talk to and explained allergies well. Recommend him.
Dr. Scaavedra, is very good with both adults and children. Everyone in the office is nice and welcoming. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Saavedra.
Found out exactly what was wrong with me and ways to go about treating it. Dr. Saavedra took his time and was very diligent!
He was very knowledgeable and through. He was interested in what I was saying and wanted to make sure he was getting all the answers I needed. Monica was amazing too! She was super friendly and was very chatty!
Everyone from the intake person to the doc's assistant to the doc were amazing. Highly professional, friendly, and knowledgable. Went above and beyond. Thank you!
The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The doctor took as much time as we needed to answer all my questions. I did not feel rushed.
Great staff and great Doctor.
I think my MA's name was Monica and she was extremely easy to talk to. She was smiling, had a warm demeanor, explained everything. The dr took the time needed to answer all my questions. Extremely professional. Loved this place
All the team were really professional and friendly! I am definitely coming back!!! -.-
I would definitely go back with this docotr if I need to and I will highly recommended
Very impressed with Dr. & his great staff. He explains everything in detail and ask me many questions. He didnt rush through my appointment as some doctors do. He seemed very relaxed & took time to listen to me and answer questions in detail. Very pleased with Dr. & his wonderful staff!
He was very thorough, knowlegable and he actually smiled. A lot of specialists are just by the book 100% and don't have much of a personality. The doctor was very nice and I appreciate his practice.
The office seemed well organized and prompt. Dr. Saavedra was friendly and really seems to like what he does. He explained the procedure and treatment clearly. In one visit my testing was completed, and I felt all my questions were answered.
This is a wonderful office and very thorough doctor! Great experience!
I was impressed. He was excellent and I would highly recommend him.

It is really my pleasure to visit, i went with really a bad situation....now i am feeling very relaxed...thanks to Michael Saavedra
Very professional !
This was my first time visiting an Allergist and I should have done this years ago! Dr. Saavedra was extremely patient with me and took his time answering all of my questions! His staff was also very nice and professional! Highly recommend!
Excellent, I have a little medical background myself, the Dr. Saavedra's diagnostic skills are excellent, he asked all the right questions, very impressed!
Very professional and thorough-- would highly reccomend this docto
Great doctor, who listens and provides good insight. I even wound up taking my kids to see him eventually, because I knew they'd get great medical attention.
Extremely kind and professional. Dr.Saavedra knows his stuff, and helped me to understand my issues, and find a way to treat them or ease them. The staff was outstanding, and thoughtful. Very friendly people, and yet very professional. I will recommend to anyone looking for an allergist/immunologist. Extremely satisfied.
I was very satisfied with the service and staff at the Arcadia office! I woul highly recommend Dr. Saavedra to anyone- they were warm, welcoming and very knowledgable!
Great DR- Easy to talk with, takes his time with you.
He and his office staff were professional, kind, and competent. I would recommend him unequivocally.
Excellent visit, staff was very friendly and professional, there was no wait time, and Dr Saavedra was knowledgeable and personable.
He was very through and thoughtful to any questions or concerns that I had!
Very professional, incredibly nice, and extremely caring. I've always gotten poor diagnosing with my asthma until now. He took lots of time with me and was willing to answer all of my questions that I've never gotten clear answers from other doctors. I've never received a lot of information about my asthma before so I felt at ease and knowledgable about the current state of my lungs. Would definitely recommend Michael to anyone.
Listened well, answered all my questions, and set up a treatment plan quickly. The office staff and nurses were all very friendly and helpful. Recommended!
I am not a fan of doctor's offices. That being said, this was a very pleasant experience! We did not have to wait at all, in fact I think they even brought us in early. Monica was great with my easily distracted 12 year old son, and Dr. Saavedra took his time in explaining the condition, causes, treatments, and possible outcomes in a very easy to understand manner. We were in and out, yet I did not feel the least bit rushed either. Linsey at the front desk was very friendly as well. All around a great experience, and we definitely be returning. :)
Excellent service by the entire staff! Caring and personal.
Professional staff. Efficiently run office. Front office staff polite and friendly. Paperwork to fill out as minimal!! Dr and RN were wonderful. Made me feel well taken care of and that I was being treated very thoroughly and that everything I had to say was taken into consideration.
Very helpful!! Will go back
Office and staff are very welcoming f Dr Saavedra was great and I am confident that I will be feeling a lot better soon.
The staff was very friendly and nice. I was promptly taken back and everything was explained to me. The doctor was also very thorough and kind. I highly recommend!
He listens, has great manners and tries to see patience as soon as he can.
Insightful, knowledgeable, and a a good listener--all the qualities you want. I'm fully confident that Dr. Saavedra will use his up-to-date and deep knowledge to develop the best comprehensive plan to minimize my allergy suffering. Assuming I need it, I'm excited to move forward with Rush Immunotherapy, a relatively new and accelerated allergy treatment plan of which I believe Dr. Saavedra is an early adopter in the Phoenix area.
Very professional, helpful and straight-foreward
Asked very open ended questions to help get detail of my symptoms. He was very helpful. I felt very confident in my next steps after leaving the office.
good visit, not rushed, and was informtive.
Dr. Saavedra is professional, , polite and and most importantly does not have a typical doctor.s attitude. He is to the point and efficient without being abrupt. His staff is also very congenial. I was very favorably impressed with my overall experience, and would not hesitate at all recommending him to a friend.
Excellent service from staff and Doctor.
Easy to talk to, Dr. Saavedra actually listened to what I had to say, he made me feel that he had my best interest in mind. Would recommend without hesitation! One last thing, the staff was excellent, too.
Very calm and focused, seemed to "hear" my daughter's history, solution focused.
Dr Saavedra and his staff are very professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them.
Dr. Saavedra and his team were very professional and courteous.
