Patient Comments (1)
in Germantown , NY |
Dr Safarov is very knowledgeable and caring provider. After seeing several physicians for my medical problems, Dr Safarov was the first doctor who diagnosed my condition and provided effective treatment. He takes time to sit and talk in depth with me each time I am there and shows genuine interest and care for my medical conditions and my well-being. I highly recommend Dr Safarova, but unfortunately you have to wait 2-3 month to get an appointment with him.
