A little less than two years ago my family doctor Craig Backs suggested that I see Dr Savage. He was impressed with his practice and techniques and thought he could help me.
While it was more than a three hour drive I thought it might be valuable to make the effort. I can’t tell you how glad I am that I did. At our first meeting we spent a considerable amount of unrushed time looking at my background and goals. While I have interfaced with a lot of quality medical professionals Dr. Savage impressed me instantly with both his knowledge and his approach. He put together a plan that helped me lose weight (30 pounds) in a very reasonable manner. No craziness, no fasting, just a new perspective. Then Dr. Savage looked well beyond the surface of my lab test scores to outline a medication program that improved my lifestyle and overall health.
I am continuing to follow the path he created for me with continued success. While my lab test scores certainly reflect this it’s my overall evolution that is even more important. I can only say having the right doctor with the right knowledge is truly a gift. I would encourage anyone to take advantage of this opportunity.
Dr. Savage has been my wellness doctor for 10 years, and my wife’s for about 5 now. I wholeheartedly recommend him, and have recommended him, to my friends and colleagues over the years.
What makes him different? He is keenly interested in your overall wellness. Diet. Exercise. Bone density. Blood work. Allergies. Hormones. Etc. Because of his keen interest, he listens. He asks questions. He has surfaced things about my health that I never would have thought to mention. He has anticipated and headed off emerging medical problems before they developed. He does not hesitate to call in a specialist when one is needed. He has systematized his approach. He can show me trends in my blood work reaching back ten years. He explains what the numbers mean, and why they matter.
Best of all, he keeps me young.
I am writing this to thank you for the outstanding service you have given to me and the many satisfied executives I have referred to you, including one very successful internal medicine physician.
All have affirmed that my attestation to your mastery of systems and the interrelated elements of our problems from simple aging to heart conditions, weight, and general health is not only exceptional, but your capacity to help us understand our needs is crystal clear and unparalleled.
You also show unmatched diligence in guiding and even pushing us to our highest levels of health and enjoyment of life.
Thank you for your investment in professional excellence and interpersonal support.
When I hit the age of peri-menopause around age 48 I felt as if I had dropped off a cliff. I went from being slender, athletic, energetic and active to hypothyroid with adrenal fatigue, 25 pound weight gain out of nowhere, menopausal and had become mostly bedridden. After seeing a round of top doctors and being told nothing was wrong with me that my symptoms were just age related, and there was nothing more to talk about, I was at an utter loss on what to do to help myself. I was devastated at what my life had become without my health and vitality. I had a gut feeling that I had a thyroid problem from searching for answers on my own on the Internet, and knew I was feeling the affects of peri-menopause, so with those two things in mind, I googled top doctors in Chicago that dealt with these issues and I found Dr. Savage. When I walked into Dr. Savage's office I was scattered and deeply fatigued as well as depressed at the weight gain. I feel so blessed and fortunate to have found him and his practice.
He has completely restored my health and in essence given my spark and vitality back. I've lost the weight and the lab work he does is extensive so he finds the many important things that most other doctors tend to overlook. He's very professional, with a high level of knowledge. I didn't have to help him understand what was going on with me, he ran his tests and knew. I was very hypothyroid and not in peri-menopause, but in menopause with extremely low levels of vitamins and hormones. Dr. Savage is worth the every bit of the time and money spent at his practice. I'm so thankful that he is my doctor and he has given me back so much more than he may know. His office staff is wonderful and you'll never have to wait with other people in the waiting room. He's really special!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Savage for the last 5 years. He has helped me so much. When I first saw Dr. Savage I felt terrible I had no energy, my body ached all over, I didn’t feel good and I felt old and worn out. I was 45 at the time. Because of how I was feeling I went to my internist and requested a full work up. I had a complete physical, and blood work. All my tests came back normal. My internist informed me that she didn’t see anything wrong, she recommended “to learn to live with it I was middle aged and that I was not supposed to feel good at this age and I better get used to it”. I left her office feeling so down because I felt so bad and with her telling me it’s only going to get worse.”
I heard about Dr. Savage through one of my patients who was getting good results. She raved about him. I set up an appointment with Dr. Savage where he did blood work and a full physical, the blood work revealed a lot of hormonal imbalances. He put me on bio-identical hormones, which turned my health around. The hormones changed my life, I started having energy again, my body didn’t hurt like it had and I just felt like myself again, in a good way which is the greatest gift you can give someone. I am so grateful for Dr. Savage; he has turned my health around. Thank you Dr. Savage for being one of the best Physician’s ever!
As a certified Holistic Health Coach, my overall health and well being and that of my family’s have always been my number one priority. I have always maintained a healthy diet and good exercise plan but at about age 40, I felt Peri-menopausal symptoms and knew I didn’t want to live with them. I met Dr. Savage and discovered that although I was already healthy, I needed assistance with hormone management and fatigue.
Dr. Savage helped me to implement a plan, stick with it and I have never felt better. I just love the fact that when I have an appointment with Dr. Savage, I am able to spend as much time with him as I need. He orders only what tests are necessary to his decision making and he is willing and able to review and discuss all of my labs and imaging with me in a way I can understand.
His “whole body” approach to health allows me to feel that I am working on the root causes of my issues and not just taking a drug to quash the effects of them.
I want you to know how I feel about Chicago Integrative Care.
They are the most remarkable human beings I have ever met. They are brilliant, kind, compassionate, giving, honest and impacting. I always leave their office learning something new about myself. Meeting and learning from them has changed my life!
Dr. Savage is one of the most intelligent physicians I have ever met. One of the most special things about Dr. Savage is the way he shares his knowledge, both medical and life lessons, with his patients. He talks with you, rather than above you. Dr. Savage continues to look for answers no matter how long it takes to solve the puzzles of our health. It is rare today to find physicians as compassionate, warm and motivating. Dr Savage is one of those special physicians we all look for. A physician who truly cares about your life: both personally and medically.
The most exciting part is that you will leave his office on a new journey, empowered from what you have learned and ready to take action.
Dr Savage is also one of the most powerful and comprehensive speakers I have ever heard, I have attended hundreds of physician lectures though out my profession, Dr Savage is in a league of his own. No matter how extensive and complicated the topic, he finds a ways to connect with the different audience members. Dr Savage is 100% of the time up to date on the latest research and presenting up to date information. I highly recommend Dr Savage if you ever need a speaker for your organization.
