Prior to joining the team of doctors at North Shore Eye Care, Dr. Savetsky practiced ophthalmic care in Los Angeles, CA. He received ophthalmology training at Tulane University Hospital in New Orleans, LA, where he then went on to acquire further training in cornea and refractive surgery at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic, located in Cleveland, OH.

Not my first time here. Wait time is consistently horrendous. Calling ahead won't help. Dr. Savetsky is good, but overall the experience is terrible. Likely will not return.

We went to this specific doctor because it showed he was in-network with our insurance ... a few weeks later we receive a bill from our insurance saying he's been out-of-network since January 2017 which his office chose not to share that with us the day of the visit, and now we have to pay an unreasonable amount for a routine eye exam. Make sure they give u a written notice or something confirming what they're saying because they WILL NOT be responsible for any case such as this one.
