Dr. Savarice was kind, empathetic, and understanding. He did a great job of making an uncomfortable situation tolerable for me. He was excellent at telling me what he was going to do, explaining the procedure as he was working, and being sensitive to my discomfort. He went a long way toward easing my concerns by answering all my questions - he is a very sensitive and caring doctor.

The experience was good because every step was described by the doctor which decreased anxiety about what was happening.

February 22, 2016

Dr. Serveries was extremely professional and helpful, as well as being courteous and relaxed. His student intern, Jordan, was equally courteous.

January 11, 2016

Everyone there takes the time to answer all of my questions.

December 18, 2015

It seemed as if he didnt want to help me or didnt even want to be there. He came in to the room and just wasnt very friendly and definitely didnt seem concerned.

He put me at ease when I was really uptight about my situation and I felt comfortable making a decision about what course I should take to resolve my issue.

Dr Savarise was incredible. Very caring and interested in what we had to say and extremely thorough.

August 28, 2015

Dr Savarise is seriously one of the best doctors. He explains everything so well so that I understood it. He has great bedside manner. He listened to me and I never felt dumb asking any questions. He addressed all my concerns. He even called me on my cell because of my concerns and questions regarding my surgery. What doctors do that? So awesome! I recommended him to a lot of my friends who need to get their varicose veins fixed.

August 18, 2015

The staff and the physicians were AWESOME. Made me feel at ease with the procedure. I was told what was going to happen ahead of time and gave me the opportunity to ask questions.

August 18, 2015

I had put off the procedure for several years but once I was in this staff care, all of my fears passed.

August 18, 2015

The staff kept my husband informed

August 05, 2015

I did not like the fact the the nurse, Tauna, took advantage of telling me about the procedure. When the doctor came in, he saw that Tauna had already informed me. I think she should have let the doctor talk with me.

July 24, 2015

Procedure was much easier than expected. Looking forward to not having to deal with problem in future.

July 05, 2015

I appreciate his follow-up at U of U ... South Jordan is a long and unfamiliar trip.

December 04, 2014

My first visit with Dr. Savarise. Extremely professional, yet gentle and down to earth. Gave careful consideration to my input without inducing any alienation whatsoever. Carefully answered my questions and concerns with no rushing. Very interactive and explained things in a manner conducive to my level of understanding while always maintaining a pleasant smile. Doesn't get much better than that.

October 20, 2014

I did not receive a follow-up care paper or instructions. This would have been helpful to know what to do and what to expect--what is normal or not normal.

September 27, 2014

My visit and time spent with Dr. Savarise was a very pleasant time. He was so kind and understanding. He made sure I knew what the procedure was and what he was doing. He was a true professional with great ability to work with patients and helped me to feel calm about my procedure.

September 26, 2014

Dr. Savarise set my mind at ease for my embarrassing problem, he made it less embarrassing for me with his great bedside manner. Explained everything he was doing so I was aware.

September 25, 2014

Doctor Savarise has been very accommodating to my needs, both pre-op, during and post-op. I was able to text an image of the affected area of surgery, to see if he thought I should get a post-operative visit before the routine post-op visit. Having the ability to correspond via MyChart is a very nice feature of the U of U Health Care services too.

September 25, 2014


September 08, 2014

Dr. Savarise is awesome. He knew what he was doing. He was quick, and very professional.

September 07, 2014

I met Dr. Savarise for the first time at this appointment. He was friendly, professional and explained everything to my satisfaction. I had a few questions about the mesh he planned to use in my surgery and he cleared up everything that I was concerned about. It was good, comprehensive care.

September 07, 2014

I had a new doctor this time (as the PA I used to see--whom I really liked--has moved). I am happy with the care I received and am relieved to have found a new doctor that is very caring and professional.

I was very impressed with his professionalism. I am a U of U hospital supervisor.

May 06, 2014

I requested a saline treatment, but unsure if that was the treatment I received. I had saline treatment at U of U in Salt Lake City hospital approx. ten (10) years ago. Salt Lake clinic was successful and minor bruising. I was confident same care/results would be at South Jordan clinic. It is yet to be determined/due to results of this current treatment.

Surgery needs to be repeated because hernia (though obvious) was not repaired fully. I'm at my wits end figuring out what to do about this.

September 24, 2013

Doctor and nurse were both excellent at putting me at ease and getting me through the procedure with as little pain as possible.

September 21, 2013

I should have asked him for written instructions , I know this wasnt a big deal but I felt like I had to ask all the questions ,I asked him about pain management as I was leaving walking down the hall.

August 19, 2013

The doctor saw me as an add on and he was wonderful. He addressed my pain and explained the procedure to me before and after. Very professional and very kind

July 09, 2013

I had met Dr. Savarise previously at my office and he remembered me, which I thought was great because, as a pediatrician, I don't send him many patients. He listened well, answered all my questions, and really put my mind at ease about my procedure.

July 02, 2013
