Physician EHR Testimonials
Thomas E. Dunlap, M.D. Northern California Medical Associates, Santa Rosa, CA
"The opportunity to 'test drive' the SRS EHR with no strings attached eliminated any hesitations we had and showed that SRS has 100% belief in their solution—that confidence is very reassuring. The pilot program proved that we would be successful with SRS enterprise-wide."
Craig M. Walker, M.D. Cardiovascular Institute of the South, Houma, LA
“After suffering through three failed attempts to implement traditional EMRs—the most recent being a CCHIT-certified product—we were thrilled to find a solution that was fully embraced throughout our entire enterprise. SRS clearly understands our complex clinical workflows, and their robust EHR easily conformed to the diverse requirements of each of our providers. We could not have found a better partner.”
Richard Boss, M.D. Pine Medical Group, Fremont, MI
"I’m much more efficient, I’m much better able to keep track of things, and I think I am much better at medical care. The system has paid for itself and it will continue to pay for itself many times over."
Francis J. O'Donnell, M.D. OrthoNeuro, Columbus, OH
“We need a solution that will streamline our workflow and not impede the physician-patient relationship we value so much. The Rx Workflow Manager™ with ePrescribing and Order Management modules will speed up our prescription and test-ordering process, and the optional easy-to-use templates will allow us to interact with our patients without onerous pointing and clicking in the exam room.”
Jamal Ahmad, M.D. Rothman Institute, Philadelphia, PA
"My patient volume ranges from 35 – 50 patients each day I am in the office. Since we implemented SRS, I care for all my patients more effectively and efficiently and receive all the benefits of the SRS EHR without being slowed down. Furthermore, with the SRS EHR, I can more effectively review clinical data—it just makes everything easier for me."
Adam Fenichel, M.D. Jewett Orthopaedic Clinic, Winter Park, FL
"One of the features the physicians really like about the SRS EHR is the patient photos that accompany every digital chart. When we are on call on the weekend and a patient needs a prescription, we can see the photo of the patient for whom we need to write a prescription—we are more confident with the facial recognition the photo provides and having the chart with complete clinical data. The fear of writing a prescription without full information no longer exists."
Charlie Leinberry, M.D. Rothman InstitutePhiladelphia, PA
"Almost anyone with computer skills can learn to work with the SRS EHR with minimal training or experience. Ease-of-use and delivery of valuable clinical information are just a couple of the benefits I've derived from using the system. The robust functionality of the EHR allows for research and data to be entered, tracked, and reported, and the unique messaging capabilities facilitate communication without requiring a trail of office notes and phone messages. As a result, the response time to patient inquiries has improved greatly, which is something our patients have gladly noted."
Dean Carlson, M.D. Eye Associates of Colorado Springs, CO
"Our physicians experience a high-volume of patient visits on a daily basis, so it was imperative to find a robust EHR solution focused on physician productivity. The SRS EHR is easy to use and provides us the cutting edge tools that increase workflow efficiencies throughout our practice."
Thomas Roland, Jr., M.D. NYU Cochlear Implant Center, New York, NY
“SRS enhances my feeling of confidence...with all the information at my fingertips, I see more patients in less time without their feeling like they are being rushed...my ability to respond to calls immediately, instead of at the end of the day, allows me to get home earlier…the value of the SRS EHR is huge in handling requests for medical records and correspondence…increased efficiency saves significant time and money…I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of implementation.”
Peter G. Noordsij, M.D. Concord Orthopaedics, NH
“The SRS EHR addresses our physicians’ technology needs without interrupting the way we practice medicine. Since the SRS EHR is composed of customizable modules, we were able to select and modify the technology to fit the needs of our practice.”
Dan A. Nichols, M.D. St. Paul Eye Clinic, MN
"In order to modernize our high-volume practice, we needed a usable solution that would satisfy the demands of each individual physician. For example, the SRS Clinical Summary provides a time-saving, one-screen snapshot of a patient's complete medical history, and each physician can modify the Clinical Summary view to meet his or her own preference. This efficiency and flexibility made the SRS EHR the clear choice for our practice."
John S. Jarstad, M.D., CEO Evergreen Eye Centers
Federal Way, WA
"We were apprehensive about switching over to an EHR because the systems we tried in the past slowed us down too much, decreased our productivity, and were not able to handle the data storage of all the electronic images we use in eye surgery. We found the solution to our needs in SRS. All pertinent clinical data is easily and clearly displayed on the customizable Clinical Summary and all digital images are seamlessly integrated into the SRS EHR and the patient’s digital record. Everything is managed in a unified system enhancing our effectiveness and the care our patients receive. This is what sold us on the SRS EHR. We have also successfully adopted the ePrescribing functionality and look forward to the higher Medicare reimbursement."
Joseph Schwartz, M.D. Bone & Joint Specialists, P.C., Merrillville, IN
"Prior to implementing the SRS EHR, a patient encounter form was completed at the end of every appointment. With SRS Routing Forms, this important task is completely automated, effortless, and fast. With 1 click the encounter form pops up auto-populated with patient demographics. I quickly select the orthopaedic procedure codes, and with 1 click of the mouse the encounter form is saved to the patient’s chart and routed to the billing department where the staff immediately begins working on it. Everything is completely documented and we never lose the encounter form as it is automatically and instantaneously filed in the correct tab in the patient’s chart. All this is done before the patient even leaves the exam room and allows me to continue to focus my direct attention on the patient and not the process. Our patients receive enhanced and personal care and I’ve saved valuable time allowing me the flexibility to spend my time the way I choose."
Jim Barad, M.D. Eye Associates of Colorado Springs, CO
"SRS delivered all the EHR functionality we need to consistently provide excellent patient care and service, yet the implementation was effortless. I didn't realize how productive the SRS EHR really is—I thought I'd have to reduce my volume on the day we went live, but I didn't."
Tim Logemann, M.D. Cardiovascular Associates of Northern Wisconsin
“I am a member of a 12-man 18-provider cardiology group in Wausau, WI. We have been very pleased with our SRS EHR. We were able to implement it with very little practice or patient disruption. We did not have to cut back on our schedules and this allowed full patient access throughout the implementation phase. We have an interface between SRS and Dictaphone that allows our office notes to be placed directly in a patient’s chart in the SRS EHR—no scanning needed. The ease of use resulted in great provider acceptance and adoption. The ease of access has afforded great patient service and safety from any site.”
Mark Singh, M.D. Blue Hills Medical Group, Braintree, MA
"The SRS system made it very easy for us to take this disparate group of documents and organize it into an electronic chart very similar to the paper chart that we were currently using. Because of this, the implementation of the SRS system was amazingly simple. It took no more than 30 minutes to train our staff, most of whom have very limited computer experience."
Ben Cohen, M.D. Retina Associates, New York, NY
"I purchased the SRS software package because it was the only system that didn’t require me to alter the way I am accustomed to working in the office, and it gave me fast access to any of my patients’ charts from anywhere in my three offices."
Daniel J. Albright, M.D. Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic, NC
"I get into the SRS EHR anytime, anywhere. From home, I'm connected into the office. I can get any note I want, any test, any lab. That's convenient. That's definitely an advantage."
J. Mark Engel, M.D. University Children's Eye Center, East Brunswick, NJ
"The accolades we received from high-profile SRS users nationwide were very influential in our decision to implement SRS EHR. I was extremely impressed with the flexibility and usability of the SRS solution—in today's market, an intuitive, user-friendly solution is not easy to come by."
Jeffrey Liebmann, M.D. Glaucoma Associates, New York, NY
“SRS delivers as promised…it’s a physician-friendly software that doesn’t slow me down…the efficiency provided by the SRS EHR enables us to do research we could never have done before.”
Daniel Jost, M.D. Boone Clinic, Columbia, MO
"The SRS EHR has been extremely easy to integrate into our 38 physician clinic. We’ve been able to streamline our practice and reduce staff while serving an increasing volume of patients. The completeness of our documentation even down to telephone messages greatly reduces our medical/legal risk. SRS simply works."
Byron Tabbut, M.D. Wheaton Eye Clinic, Wheaton, IL
"I am ‘Evangelistic’ about the SRS solution...your best advocate. My practice’s growth, with paper, was limited. With SRS, our growth was enabled. We added three new physicians last year and are projected to add two this year and no ancillary staff is needed to support them."
Burrel C. Gaddy, M.D. Midwest Orthopaedics, Shawnee Mission, KS
"The confidence SRS had that their EHR solution was the right choice for our practice was very reassuring and 100% justified. In hindsight, it's no surprise that SRS is an industry leader, given the quality of its product, its deep understanding of physicians' needs, and its dominant experience in orthopaedics. Only SRS is willing to put its money where its mouth is."
Marc Safran, M.D. Clay Eye Center, Liverpool, NY
"All told, the SRS EHR system has been easy to understand and use, both from my and my employees' perspective. We have never had any major technical difficulties and I feel that our backup system is now superior to those of traditional paper charting."
Veronica Diaz, M.D. Jupiter Hand to Shoulder, Jupiter, FL
"SRS Transcription has been a game-changer for me. I’m able to see 5-10 more patients a day and the quality of the dictations is outstanding. I love the iPhone platform and love the setup online for editing notes."
Matthew Jimenez, M.D. Illinois Bone & Joint InstituteMorton Grove, IL
"Given the breadth of experience SRS has in high-performance orthopaedic practices and the confidence they have in their EHR product, SRS offered IBJI the opportunity to participate in their No Cost Pilot Program (NCPP). As one of the physicians involved, I experienced first-hand the productivity and efficiency gains that the SRS EHR brought to our busy practice. The first day of the NCPP coincided with my first day back from vacation. My patient load was at the maximum—a truly challenging number of patients for which to provide our high level of patient care. Not only did I see every patient on my schedule but, astonishingly, I left the clinic on time that day. The SRS EHR is intuitive, easy to learn, and assists me in providing an enhanced level of patient care without sacrificing my quality of life."
Kevin W. McCurry, M.D. Riffe Medical Center, Mossy Rock, WA
"SRS has been in use in my office for 2.5 years and has greatly simplified our office routine and work flows. I can't imagine being without it. My staff loves it, and patients like the idea of electronic records. It gives them the idea their doctor is up to date and on the leading edge. The SRS EHR has enhanced our interoffice communications tremendously. SRS really means ‘service real soon’."
Chris Nicholson, M.D. Southeastern Orthopedic Center, Savannah, GA
“The CCHIT EMR we had purchased would have placed overwhelming demands on our physicians and resulted in a significant loss of productivity, even if we had overcome the initial implementation hurdles. SRS will be easily adopted by all of our providers because it accommodates each of our individual practice styles, and I am confident that it will deliver workflow and patient-care advantages that far surpass whatever we might have received from the government.”
Terry Finlayson, M.D. Alpine Orthopaedic Specialists, Logan, UT
"We tried a traditional EMR, but it was such a major change that it slowed us down and made us less productive. With the SRS EHR, we didn't have to change how we practice, but we still have the benefit of immediate electronic access to our records and we keep more accurate, more complete charts."
Ilene Fischer, M.D. Murray Hill OB/GYN, New York, NY
"SRS plays a vital role in our healthcare strategy. That translates into a digital chart solution that gets the job done and allows us to manage workflow on our terms, while I focus on running my practice."
B. David Gorman, M.D. New York, NY
“SRS is worth its weight in gold…with no paper charts to move, we relocated our office with only a few hours of practice interruption…and converted former chart room to an optical…I never feel out of touch, even when I’m out of the country…when I’m finished seeing patients, my day ends—I don’t have to return to my desk to piles of paperwork…remote chart access saves me after-hours trips to my office or the emergency room…patients have increased confidence coming to a technologically up-to-date office...it was the easiest implementation of all of our technology.”
Richard E. Fleming, M.D. Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, NJ
"When patients call with questions, I can effortlessly access their charts through the SRS EHR. The turnaround time has been wonderful! My patients love that I get back to them quickly and always have all their information at my fingertips. I really feel as though I'm delivering superior patient care."
Allen Natow, M.D. Woodmere, NY
"The SRS EHR has paid for itself every few months for all of the 120+ months we have used it. With over 100,000 distinct patient charts in our practice, we have gained at least enough space to accommodate 3 extra exam rooms (income generators) by having our records digitized (and stored in a small-footprint server rack). We no longer have a file room, nor file room staff. In addition, our workflow is much more efficient than when we were on paper. Telephone messages, chart retrieval, and prescription writing are much more efficiently addressed by using the software. Also, remote access to all of our records (and the ability to remotely annotate charts) has substantially improved the quality of life of our physicians. Do not overlook the potential value in having all of our records backed up and stored off-site, thereby rendering our practice essentially fire-proof.
This piece of software is one of the few cost-saving investments that continues to generate returns for us. "
David M. Pope, M.D. Bone & Joint Clinic of Baton Rouge, LA
"The SRS EHR allows us to streamline our clinical workflow, boost our productivity, and focus our time on delivering quality patient care—rather than entering data. Providing the best care possible to my patients in an effective and efficient manner is my number-one priority, and SRS is clearly focused on helping me accomplish these goals."
Louis Furlan, M.D. Pediatric Ophthalmic Consultants, NYU Medical Center
New York, NY
"SRS has given me a true sense of control in my pediatric ophthalmology practice. I have all the information I need about any of my patients instantly."
Stephan M. McCollam, M.D. Peachtree Orthopaedic Clinic, Atlanta, GA
"It is critical that someone speak on behalf of the physicians to make sure that the government's expectations for 'meaningful EHR use' do not place unrealistic burdens on them. Private-practicing physicians are underrepresented on the government's committees, so I hope that the petition and provider comments will be given significant consideration as the regulations are finalized."
Thomas G. Padanilam, M.D. Toledo Orthopaedic Surgeons, OH
"After extensive EMR research and comparative product evaluation, we concluded that the SRS EHR would deliver considerable workflow efficiencies not likely with other EHRs—and would do so quickly. We see tremendous opportunities for practice growth with SRS, and appreciate that we will not have to modify our successful practice styles in order to achieve this growth."
Roger Blauvelt, M.D. Cascade Orthopaedics, Auburn, WA
“A high-performance EMR was the next logical step as we continue to upgrade and modernize our clinical operation. Upon researching the overwhelming EMR/EHR market, SRS EHR quickly emerged as an industry leader, and one well suited to fill our needs with a minimum of transition headache. An EHR has become a 'must' in practices with multiple providers doing work in multiple locations.”
Anthony Viola, M.D. New Milford Orthopedic Associates, CT
"In order to reap the advantages of an all-digital environment, each and every one of my colleagues will need to shift completely away from our antiquated paper-based chart system. Because SRS is an easy-to-use, intuitive solution that increases physician productivity and workflow efficiency, I have no doubt that the transition to SRS will be a complete success."
Michael S. Petersen, M.D. Valley Oak Orthopaedics, Davis, CA
“The positive feedback we received regarding the performance of the SRS EHR in busy orthopaedic practices across the nation assured me that we had selected the best solution. We are confident that our decision to replace a traditional EMR with the SRS EHR will take us along the right path by streamlining our workflow, delivering fast and reliable access to patient information, and increasing office efficiency.”
Michael Bartiss, M.D. Family Eye Care, Pinehurst, NC
"Each night, I backup my entire chart room to my laptop. If a patient calls in the evening or on a weekend, I have their chart in front of me in a few seconds."
Craig A. Rubenstein, M.D. Rothman InstitutePhiladelphia, PA
"I’m much more efficient in my thorough review of patient information, and I therefore provide an enhanced level of patient care. SRS provides quick and easy retrieval of patient clinical information, including chart notes, diagnostic studies, work status forms, and so much more. I am much more effective and productive in the time I spend caring for my patients. Additionally, I am better able to manage my daily schedule with the efficiencies built into the SRS EHR."
Avi Bitton, M.D. Heritage Medical Group, Forest Hills, NY
"With SRS, we have eliminated misfilings as there is no more constant pulling and filing of charts. My office is a much more pleasant place to work now as there are no longer daily "crises" to locate misplaced patient charts."
Timothy H. Krahn, M.D. orthomemphis, TN
"SRSsoft has helped facilitate the growth of our practice. With minimal addition to overhead expense, we have hired four more physicians."
Jeffrey Edelstein, M.D. Jeffrey Paul Edelstein, M.D., Ltd., Chandler, AZ
"Since I switched to SRS, I have been thrilled with the ease of finding information quickly and being able to document recurring items immediately through custom templates. SRS has helped storing and retrieving patient pre- and post-op photos in a BIG way!"
Crawford Smith, M.D. Colon & Rectal Specialists, Ltd, Richmond, VA
"SRS has transformed me from a caterpillar to a butterfly. I have shed my cocoon and my practice is ready to soar."
Wallace F. Andrew, M.D. Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic, NC
"What I didn't like about traditional EMRs was the point-and-click…the doctor is sitting there looking at the computer screen with his back to the patient. I did not want anything to do with a system like that."
Sean O'Donovan, M.D. Colon & Rectal Specialists, Ltd, Richmond, VA
"The SRS EHR is my new assistant, sitting on my desktop, ready to help and always saving me time."
Jay L. Meizlish, MD Cardiac Specialists, Fairfield, CT
I’m seeing 25% more patients, and I’m 25% less tired because of the efficiencies and advantages of SRS. It has been a remarkable experience. I would not want to go back to the old days.
Barry Goldberg, M.D. Advanced Dermatology Care, Danbury, CT
"When we saw the SRS EHR system, we knew that it would solve our chart access and storage problems while maintaining our patient volume. The patient encounter was done more efficiently allowing us to spend more time on clinical matters, rather than clerical."
Carlos Guanche, M.D. Southern California Orthopedic Institute, Van Nuys, CA
“Within days, SRS EHR transformed my practice into a calm and organized operation, enabling me to deliver efficient and superior care. After thoroughly researching traditional EMRs, we realized that each physician would have to invest far more in lost productivity than the potential $44,000 government incentives. It is crystal clear why SRS enjoys a dominant market share in orthopaedics.”
Lawrence Jacobson, M.D. New York, NY
"SRS has truly changed the workflow of my office for the better–making it more efficient and less stressful for myself and my employees."
Mark A. Steele, M.D. Pediatric Ophthalmic Consultants, NYU Medical Center
New York, NY
"In addition to the cost savings, fast access to charts from the office or home has enabled us to provide top notch, immediate service to patients and referring physicians. With the SRS EHR, we are able to provide assistance without having to put patients and referring physicians on hold while the chart is retrieved."
Eric Lichtenstein, M.D. Pediatric Ophthalmology, Fresh Meadows, NY
"I am an avid fan of SRS and am happy to be cited as a reference. Before starting my practice, I researched various digital records software packages and found nothing that compared favorably to SRS. The ease of customization and integration with Microsoft Word has allowed me to develop and refine my own chart notes and forms; my SRS EHR is truly my own personal version."
Jay Bernstein, M.D. Pediatric Ophthalmology Associates, Cedar Knolls, NJ
"SRS makes my office more efficient and keeps my charts organized. I have three offices around the New York Metropolitan area, all are networked. All of my charts are available from any office at any time."
Harvinder Sandhu, M.D. Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY
"When making my decision as to which EMR to purchase, having a digital solution and being able to quickly alleviate the shortage of available space in my office were my primary goals. The elegant design of the SRS EHR and the simple interface has made it easy for me to reach my goals."
Jacob R. Battle, M.D. Waco Orthopedic & Sports Medicine Clinic, Waco, TX
"The conversion to electronic medical records was painless, the immediate efficiency we experienced throughout our office was remarkable, and we have clearly improved our level of patient care and service, I have no regrets regarding our decision to go with the SRS EHR—the only mistake we made was not making the change to SRS years ago."
Mark Brown, M.D. Vision Partners, Mobile, AL
"When I walk into an exam room I feel confident that I have all of the patient's data available to me at the push of a button. I vividly remember the days when we had paper charts, and charts and/or notes were missing—and how embarrassing it was NOT to have a complete patient history/chart—especially when the treatment plan was missing. It’s a significant part of a patient's first impression. Having a complete chart when needed often adds to the confidence-factor a patient feels under my care."
Marc Harwood, M.D. Rothman InstitutePhiladelphia, PA
"SRS has truly enhanced the care of my patients. I work in three different offices. Before SRS, if a patient from one office saw me in another office, I was often left without a chart, or left waiting for the courier to arrive with the chart. This is no longer an issue: with the SRS EHR, I have access to all records, at all times, anywhere I have an internet connection. This means I have every patient’s complete history at the moment a clinical decision needs to be made. This is especially important when answering telephone calls in the evening. When prescribing, I now log in to the SRS EHR remotely and avoid medication interactions or duplications. For our practice, it has made delivery of patient care safer."
Steven K. Mishkin, M.D. Millennium Eye Care, Freehold, NJ
"Our ambulatory surgery center can retrieve chart notes directly from the computer without the need for the physical chart. This has streamlined the process of surgery scheduling, eliminating delays and loss of information. Searching for lost charts is a thing of the past, with the recent visits’ notes easily retrievable from the computer.
The staff is very happy with SRS EHR. It is very user friendly. I feel sorry for the medical practices that aren't using SRS."
Neal Zimmerman, M.D. Greater Chesapeake Hand Specialists, Lutherville, MD
"I’m a surgeon, so I’m not in the office about 40% of the time. I’m in the operating room. I take my tablet and sign into SRS whether I’m in our surgery center or the hospital. I have full functionality. I can do all my lab reports and call my patients from home. SRS means I now play golf when I’m done with surgery on Tuesdays."
James S. Gebhard, M.D. Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates
Grand Junction, CO
"SRS has made access to complete and accurate patient charts simple, convenient, and fast. Patient visit documentation is easy for the doctors and the efficiency of the entire office has increased."
Michael P. Dohm, M.D. Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates
Grand Junction, CO
"Organized, instantaneous access to accurate patient medical records has resulted in better patient care. Better patient care has resulted in the growth of our practice. You can't appreciate the benefits SRSsoft brings to a practice if you are still entrenched in paper."
Robert D. Keehn, M.D. OrthoMaryland, Baltimore, MD
"I have maximum control over my clinical environment without sacrificing the way I prefer to practice medicine."
Jamal Ahmad, M.D. Rothman Institute, Philadelphia, PA
"With the SRS EHR, I navigate my patients' clinical data faster and more efficiently, and I don't have to wade through other physicians' notes to get to my own notes. It's quicker to electronically prescribe than to write out a paper prescription, and it bypasses the sloppy handwriting problem that can lead to errors. But the best thing I love about the SRS EHR is that I can check the charts from home. I can anticipate and watch my schedule like a hawk! Sometimes patients make appointments before they are instructed to, which doesn't allow me to maximize my time in the office. I also spend less time in the office doing research and can easily accomplish my research goals from the comfort of my home."
Joseph N. Daniel, D.O. Rothman Institute, Philadelphia, PA
"The SRS EHR covers the whole breadth of clinical data an orthopaedic surgeon needs. It’s a robust system yet straightforward and easy to use. The enhanced messaging capabilities allow me to communicate with my scheduler, nurses, and the entire staff in a quick and efficient manner. Physical therapy and MRI results are easy to locate and read in the SRS EHR and I no longer need to call and look for results or reports—I can see everything with just a keystroke. SRS has improved my efficiency and productivity.
On a personal note, I routinely access SRS from home during the weekend to check the upcoming week’s schedule for patients and scheduling accuracy. And since implementing the SRS EHR I am out of the office quicker at the end of my day—if I still used paper charts I’d have to leave later in the day. These are both great benefits to me."
George Kurita, M.D. Clarksville Dermatology, TN
"Since the SRS EHR brings the patient’s chart right up on the screen, I can quickly and easily document patient conversations. Before SRS, documenting every patient phone call was a chore as each chart had to be located."
Dennis Matzkin, M.D. Eye Sight Laser Center, Atlanta, GA
"Having been in a number of different practices over the years, chart issues have always been a nightmare. From tracking the chart, to organizing the chart, to multiple staff members needing the chart at the same time. Now, with the SRS EHR, I do not have charts or filing clerks, and I put the extra space I had anticipated using for a chart room to better use."
