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.

Dr. Savransky inspires my confidence that I'm in smart, competent and caring hands. She actively listens, looking into your eyes, not the computer screen. She responds clearly and thoroughly to every question and concern, explaining with language I can understand. I feel fortunate to have her as my primary doctor. being able to say that is extremely important to me, and my family.

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?

I just started seeing Dr. Savransky last year for the first time. prior to that I was with Dr Zeller for [date deleted] years. Dr Savransky seems thorough and is certainly personable and knowledgeable. I've always received excellent care from Legacy personnel and staff.

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.

Met to discuss 3 medical problems spread across 3 health care systems. She was up-to-date on my medications & medical problems. Had good _____ suggestions I am following. I have recommended Dr. Savransky to friends & family who appreciate her as I do.

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.

You may consider modifying your survey from "Phone call" to "communicate with" the office. I said "no" to calling the office, but I sent electronic MyHealth communications which were responded to in a timely manner. Dr. Savransky is the gold standard. Her MAs usually to the communicating through MyHealth, but I trust she knows how to delegate the work in order to be fully present with her patients--which she is. She also has a very calming approach. I would recommend HER to family and friends, there is one provider in that office that I avoid if possible because her bedside manner is bossy.

Dr. Savransky is a gem. She called my cell within minutes of me leaving her office and suggested I return to Good Sam for a chest xray, mostly because I had shortness of breath. The xray resulted in me having a Thoracentesis within a few days. If it were not for her call to me, I could have had very serious problems.

I have never had a doctor who listened to me as intently as Dr. Savransky. The assistant who saw me before the doctor came in could have used a little more training (i.e.,) had to ask her if the gown opened in the front or back.)

I have a spinal cord injury, use crutches, and am [age deleted] years old. It is difficult to stand for any length of time. There was a short line when I arrived and then I needed to stand at the counter to check in and sign some papers. This was very difficult for me. Why don't you have a chair at the check-in line and then a chair in frnot of the check in receptionists?
