We visited this doctor this week at The Portland hospital. Dr Sawczenko was most attentive and kind to my niece who was very nervous about her visit. He listened patiently to both my niece and my sister in law. He explained the diagnosis and not only the diagnosis however the reasoning behind it to give us a full understanding of the condition and why. He also gave further information on vaccines and really went over and beyond his role. I can personally say from the physical examination to the discussion Dr Sawczenko was fantastic with the child. He made jokes, gave simplified answers and also re assured the child regarding the nature of her condition. I would highly recommend Dr Sawczenko to other families and parents. As a self funding patient he was also very honest about fees and actually advised that some tests we requested were not necessary and that we should save our money. An overall genuine and fantastic doctor. We are most grateful for his time and expertise.
I found Dr Andrew Sawczenko from an online search and read the positive reviews about him. It was very easy to book an appointment with him and he responded to emails promptly. During the appointment he listened to all my concerns and spent a lot of time examining my son and I felt he even went beyond my initial concern and undertook further examinations which was very assuring. The appointment lasted a considerable time and felt thorough and definitely not rushed. Dr Sawczenko showed a lot of interest and asked several questions to get to know my son/ his habits/ circumstances better. After the appointment he sent his report to me the next day and provided further advice. I would definitely visit Dr Sawczenko again if I had any concerns regarding my son’s health, and would recommend him.
Dr. Sawczenko was absolutely wonderful with our daughter, who was diagnosed with HyperMobility under his care. He has an instinctive connection to children’s psyche and easily draws out exactly what a child is feeling and experiencing. He has the empathy parents very much need and the expertise of a remarkable paediatrician. Dr Sawczenko is totally patient centred, kind, and made us feel like we were his only clients for the day! His early diagnosis ( before MRI and bloods) was spot on. He detailed the diagnosis in such a way that we never panicked or stressed about any outcome. Most important of all, our daughter felt relaxed in his care and this in turn allowed her to voice the real impact the chronic pain in her ankle, was causing her.
Dr. Sawczenko is without a doubt one of the best most qualified Pediatritian I have come across. His knowledge combined with his Emotional Intelligence enables Dr. Sawczenko to diagnose and treat really effectively. In our case our children in separate occasions had non-trivial symptoms and Dr. Sawczenko, with no more tests than necessary, helped them get better. He also understands what urgency to place in each case putting us as parents ease. I feel lucky to have crossed paths with Dr. Sawczenko.
I had great experience with Dr Sawczenko. He answered all my questions, gave extra time to talk through everything, provided lots of advice. I trusted his opinions and would come back to him next time.
