Inefficient staff

The office staff messed up several times. First, they didn’t process my insurance authorization bec they said I didn’t need one for my CT scan. Second the first prescription they gave me was incomplete. When i got the new prescription, it didn’t match the insurance authorization. When i called the office for verification of the order, i had to wait a while for a call back response so i had to sit and wait in registration before i can get the answer i needed. Very inefficient. They don’t know what they’re doing. They don’t communicate with each other or don’t read each other’s notes so they are all on the same page and get my prescription and authorization right the first time. So frustrating...

Office Terrible

Office never faxed reports to either primary care or second urologist i see in NY, despite saying they would and despite my giving them the info. Then 10 days after procedure, when i called to ask them to send it, they said I'd have to come in to sign new releases. Then when i asked for copy so i could transmit myself to make sure the other drs got, they charged me $19.00 for the copies. WILL NEVER USE AGAIN.

excellent doctor

Dr Savatta recently treated me for prostate cancer by performing Robotic Surgery to remove my cancerous prostate. I was in the hospital overnight and back home the next day. Everything went smoothly. He is very a caring and makes you well informed what he will do and how you will recover. I am very happy that I chose Dr Savatta and would recommend him to all. My recovery is going great as I just hit the 3 month mark of post surgery and am cancer free. I am a male age 63.

Pyleoplasty

Dr. Savatta is an extraordinarily gifted robotic surgeon and highly respected in his field; but, just as important is the fact that he is very personable. He was very clear in explaining the surgical procedure and took the time necessary to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. I felt at ease going into the surgery and the outcome was very successful.
