Dr. Mark Savant leads Savant Wellness, a conciege medical practice focused on personal care and prevention.
Dr. Mark Savant is also co-founder of SavantMD.com, where he presents a daily video blog on wellness called “Wellness Tips” as well as special, longer videos on various topics, ranging from hepatitis B to how to prepare a vacation medicine kit. In addition, Savant heads the Savant Medical Group, serves as team internist to the Athletic Department at the University of San Francisco, and is active on the medical staff of two prestigious hospitals in San Francisco: St. Mary’s Medical Center and St. Francis Memorial Hospital.
In addition to being past chair of the Asian Physician’s Advisory Committee, Savant has been named a Top Performing Physician for the Hill’s Physician Medical Group for four consecutive years. As for his patients, they seem to agree: the doctor has received a five-star rating on Yelp.com.
Savant is a San Francisco native, who first received a B.A. in Classics from Massachusetts’ College of the Holy Cross, then had a change of heart and received his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin. During his internal medicine residency at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, he was given the “Grace Under Fire” award by the Emergency Department. And later, when he taught at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, medical students singled him out as an excellent clinical teacher and role model.
Outside of work, the doctor spends time with his wife and two young sons, likes to cook food based on his multicultural (French/Italian and Chinese/Indian) roots, runs, and enjoys his latest passion for dragon boat racing.
