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.
