Verified Patient Reviews
Both Dr Savetsky and his team are highly professional and thorough during my visit. The whole process was smooth and on-time. Highly recommended!
Dr Savetsky seems a cool dr, however the wait 70 minutes was very very uncool..
He was awesome. Patient, personable and knowledgable. Highly, highly recommend him!!!
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.
Outstanding service, prompt check in.
Very kind, friendly and efficient staff. MD was very personable, professional and answered all of my questions.
Knowledgeable, pleasant and very easy to talk with. Answered any questions I had.
Professional and courteous staff. Dr. Stavetsky saw me right away and did a thorough examination.
I went to see this doctor with a reoccurring corneal erosion. He told me I needed surgery and would get back to me with a date. They never got back to me nor returned my calls and because of this I had another coreneal erosion and had to go to a different doctor for surgery. It is now December and this was in August and they just called me back! Because of their lack of communication, I went through a lot of pain and unnecessary suffering
very professional and very helpful also referred me to a specialist right away
Really great Dr. Very short wait. Highly recommend
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.
Great doctor very informative
