Ridgewood, NJ |
I recently saw Dr. Savatsky for a knee injury. I found his demeanor to be arrogant and condescending as he dismissed my questions and ignored my concerns. Sadly, I feel this doctor has no time or respect for any one else's opinion and felt berated and insulted because I dared to question the path of my own recovery.

Doctor operated on me in 1985. Said a knee replacement would one day be likely. Thirty one years later stilling doing great. Thanks Gary.

I've had two surgeries with Dr. Savatsky, one for shoulder reconstruction and another for an ankle dislocation/fracture. Both injuries were football related. Both surgeries were very successful and the shoulder and ankle have remained strong after many years. Dr. Savatsky is one of the best doctors I've ever encountered. He is reassuring and patient, ready to answer any question you may have. You end up feeling secure that you're in good hands with him.

I've seen Dr. Savatsky for my knees on and off over last several years going back to 2009 and as recently as February 2016. I see him when pain and discomfort flares up and persists. He is genial and informative. At my most recent visit, after the exam, he showed me an informative video that succinctly explained arthritis in the knee. He followed that with a discussion of issues (including a review of my x-rays) and possible treatments that I found helpful, candid and sufficient.
