Dr. Savransky is very caring, knowledgeable and approachable. Additionally, I have used the online tool, MyHealth, to inquire about scheduling tests and a question about a minor injury and the responses were immediate and thorough.

woman at the counter was extremely angry and rude to clerk. there had been a fire alarm and she was not seen as scheduled due to everyone being ordered ti leave the building. the clerk was trying to reschedule the appointment and was very accommodating kind and patient. clerk was very respectful and never raised her voice or lost control on any way she even offered an immediate appointment with a FNP but patient stomped out of the office angrily. I was impressed with how well the clerk managed the interaction.

I showed up with quite a list of issues for review by Dr S (!) She listened patiently and responded to each and every one - then went on to the items on her list. [removed to protect privacy] Would I recommend Dr Savransky to friends and family? With care like this? ABSOLUTELY. Thank You for caring enough about the quality of care at your clinic to ask.

Just don't get answers - sent out to other disciplines. An internist should be able to manage most of my problems or ask if the specialist took care of them.

I am so glad to have Dr. Savransky as my primary care physician. She's thorough, compassionate, very knowledgable, and spends the time needed to hear my concerns and addresses them with concern and well thought out plans. She's a wonderful physician.

Dr. had good eye contact - looking at patient rather than the screen of a computer. I asked for lab work prescription to be set up prior to appt. going forward and she agreed. I asked for my blood pressure to be taken twice, but only one time actually occurred. Did a breast exam as requested.

2019 has been a particularly rough year for me physically and emotionally. The entire staff of this clinic has rallied behind me time and time again in ways I never would haveimagined. This selfless concern and compassion goes miles above a simple paycheck....Allison and the friendly ladies at the front, ALL of the medical assistants, the teamof Lori Followell-Charlie-Dr. Rachel Chalasta, Susan in the corner office , bolstering my spirits, and the best, Jeff Michael coupled with Dr. Savransky......I don't seem to be able to thank them enough! These relationships are special. These PEOPLE are special. Thank you for asking.

The doctor had a great personality and seemed genuinely interested in what was going on. She looked past the immediate and suggested and appointment with a therapist because of some of my answers - I needed that suggestion and did follow up with an appointment of therapist.

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 love Dr Savransky. She helped determine the diagnosis of a painful condition that several previous doctors were puzzled by and which I endured for almost 6 months

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.
