Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I am a patient of Dr. Spencer Sherman at the Manhattan 166 location. Only Dr. Savetsky is listed to render this information regarding the voice mail online recording appointment confirmations. Please be alerted that after multiple voicemails which request appointment confirmations and then direct if you’re fever free to “press 1”, you get a repeat of the voicemail.

Dr Savetsky and sraff on the 11/102019 visit were professional, info rmative and very supportive. This is my second visit. The front desk person, was a little abrupt. She asked for the copay, in a manner that was off putting, and demanding. Ihad to remind her that not everyone sherks, their financial responsibility. She finally relaxed and the visit went without a hitch. In fact, she was very accomadating. Patients that feel welcomed return.

Short wait time, efficient staff and caring. one idem you need to change is the office visit reminder. It was sent as a text massage to my phone and there is no way to confirm the visit. Please use an email office visit remainder.

I went in for an acute eye condition, and Dr. Savetsky was fantastic. He diagnosed me within minutes, had an excellent bedside manner, and gave me what I needed right away. I’m definitely making him my general opthamologist after this visit
