Sapna Savant, M.D.
"I encourage patients to participate in their own care so that health care and treatment is a collaborative effort. I respect their views as they respect mine, and together we form a plan that they are able to incorporate into their lifestyles."
Dr. Sapna Savant is an Internal Medicine Physician at the Shrewsbury location of Saint Vincent Medical Group. As a primary care physician, she stresses the importance of preventive medicine as an important part of providing complete care to her patients, which includes staying up to date on current medical recommendations and guidelines and emphasizing the important of overall health.
“Addressing health issues before they become health problems is an important component of how I practice medicine.” Dr. Savant uses follow-up appointments to check on the progress her patients are making. “Repetition is key. Patients understand how important their health is, but are sometimes at a loss as to how to get and stay healthy. Continual follow up and monitoring helps guide patients to a healthier attitude and application of health goals.”
To that end, Dr. Savant credits the electronic health records system at Saint Vincent Medical Group for increasing the ease in which she can stay up to date with the health needs of her patients. “The electronic health records keep track of the tests my patients have undergone and are due for, leading to better coordination of their care.”
Dr. Savant received her degree in medicine from Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Belgaum in Karnataka, India. She completed residencies at Lemuel Shattuck Hospital in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts and MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham, Massachusetts. Dr. Savant is board- certified in Internal Medicine.
