Verified Patient Reviews
Great bedside manner, very thorough and professional.
Dr. Savetsky is my kind of doctor: down-to-earth, straightforward, knowledgeable, and kind. And the office staff were exceptionally nice and kept things moving.
The Staff and Dr Savetsky were excellent.
Very thorough examination, focused on my concerns. Great front office staff.
Very professional and discussed his findings in details.
The staff was super friendly and Dr Savetsky was great. I went in after having Lasik by another doctor 4.5 months prior, and was still experiencing super dry eyes, and not seeing clearly. He was patient with me and addressed all of my concerns. I didn't feel rushed at all. I feel confident that Dr Savetsky knows what he's doing and will be able to help me be able to see the way I want to with no dryness very soon. I'm so grateful!
That was a pleasant visit. Dr. Savetsky was very knowledgeable and helpful! Worth the slightly longer than normal wait time...since it’s clear you’re waiting for quality care.
Great doctor, highly recommend him.
My regular ophthalmologist was on vacation and I needed to see a doctor asap. I was fortunate to find this doctor and was able to make an appointment on Zocdoc . He was very gentle , skillful and patient . He took the time to explain in detail , what he found to be my condition . I also want to compliment him on having Dana, the technician and Michelle , at the front desK , on his staff . Dana , did a great, great job! Michelle greeted me warmly when I came in , She is very efficient . Thank you all !
Efficient office, very busy but they keep things moving. Dr. had great bedside manner, explained conditions and options clearly and thoroughly.
Great staff, and knowledgable Doctor.
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.
Dr. Savetsky immediately knew my condition and the proper treatment options. After struggling with several doctors who did not know how to treat my recurring eye infection, t was such a relief to find a professional with experience. I was immediately relieved from the pain I had been experiencing.
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
Was very professional and on time.
My wait was very short. Dr. Savetsky and staff were effiecient and answered all of my questions/concerns.
Very informative. This was my first time visit for an eye exam, and it was a good visit.
