After receiving my results from my life insurance indicating that I was pre-diabetic I sought out a second opinion. I made an appointment with Dr. Ali M. Safa at the Endocrine and Diabetes center. I had two appointments with him. Both visits at the center, the staff was amazing! My 2 star rating is a result of Dr. Ali Safa. Both times the Dr was very distant and non personable. The second visit was the worse. Not enough characters to go into detail, but I felt like he was just there to collect

I visited Dr.SAFA by seeing internet reviews, I were looking for good endocrinologist. If you are dumb , just nod your head whatever He says, you will be good and he will be happy. If you have little knowledge about your issues and ask him do i need these test ? he will get angry on you and ask you who gave you this information. It is rude to me.He felt like I am trying to get knowledge from him and soft scolded me like 'no one gives you information like this, no one explains you.he let me out.
