Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

My doctor of many years retired and I have used Dr Savransky for a relatively short time. She ,of course, doesn't know my medical history as my former doctor would. Since at this point in time I am now almost [age removed] it isn't easy for either of us.

Dr. Savransky is attentive and informative. I am comfortable talking with her about any health issue and I never feel that she is trying to rush through my appointment. Molly, her medical assistant, is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Molly's manner helped me feel at ease and she is a great, painless injection giver!

I hoped for more open mindedness with pain management. I'm relieved she finally accepted my concern about the seriousness of my food ulcers. I don't want to lose my foot.

I usually only see this provider once a year because my insurance covers and physical exam with her. also because I don't seem to have any major health issues at the moment. when I came to the office I was received right away by her nursing assistant. He was very friendly and helpful. he took my vitals and got me set up for the physical. when my primary care doctor came in she was very nice and friendly as usual. I told her how I was feeling and she seemed to sort of listen to me. I asked her to check on something and she said she would do that later. she did a brief physical check of my ears, mouth, stomach and then she started to wrap up and say that I looked fine. she was about to say goodbye so I asked her again if she could look at this thing I was concerned about in the beginning. she apologized and looked at it and it turned out to be just fine, not an issue. she left after that and I changed back into my clothes. I think the total time spent with just my primary care doctor was 10-15 minutes total. I had an hour physical appointment booked and I left 15 minutes early from it and I had arrived about 10 minutes late to the appointment. I felt that my primary care doctor was in a rush to get out of the room and go do something else. I realized that she hadn't even done a breast exam on me and usually I get that with every physical. I was disappointed with the level of care because it seemed that she didn't want to spend the time on me to really check me out thoroughly. I don't know why I needed a whole hour visit for something that took 15 minutes plus time with the nurse. I find my doctor to be very cordial and friendly but I would like to get a more thorough check up of my health. especially since I only go in to see her once a year. I know I am not a sick person and so maybe she feels I'm healthy enough that I don't need to spend a lot of time with her but I do feel that the check up left me wondering what her rush was and feeling like I had an incomplete examination.

In order to get the date I want, I've learned I need to start 3 months in advance to schedule my routine annual appointment with my PCP. There is confusion for me regarding the terminology "Physical", "Medication renewal" in order too meet insurance requirements for billing. The business office was the most helpful.

There is always quite a bit of waiting time in reception area and then even more in exam room. Also, something that seems odd - this provider has never listened to heart and lungs during any visit. Maybe not done these days?

Doctor Savransky is an excellent, caring provider. She always makes sure to take time and to explain and to listen closely to questions. When I noted earlier that no one gets back to you with test results, it's because now we're expected to look them up on our MyChart. I really don't appreciate that. With Google, and not knowing what the tests represent, I always look up the values that are off and then spend days until my doctor appointment worrying about what I found. It's time to return to calling patients with the results.

Dr Savransky is new to me. This was my second visit with her. I was impressed with how familiar she was with my medical record. I asked her about a listed diagnosis in the chart that I questioned. She questioned it as well and together we decided to remove it from the record. I asked her for some names of other physicians specialists I might see in another field and she gave them to me. She discussed her concerns about an upcoming surgery I will be undergoing and made suggestions about preop testing that would be beneficial. I agreed and will follow through with the testing. All in all I consider myself very fortunate to have found her to be my internist. I had seen the same internist for many many years. He became ill and retired immediately. After many calls to offices that ended in " no he/she is not accepting new pts I found a "yes" and it was a very very fortunate connection.
