The staff & Dr. Saffer were very polite and professional. This visit was done while still under COVID-19 procedures with proper protocol, i.e, Wearing masks, Etc...Dr. Saffer explained in detail while doing the procedure. He encouraged any questions or concerns during this time. I would highly recommend his practice to anyone.

Dr. Saffer listens..! He is caring and remembers from visit to visit. It's also fairly easy to arrange an appointment around my schedule... which is NOT something I can say for many docs around here.

Dr. Saffer and staff continue to provide professional, top-quality podiatry care. I have been a patient since 2011 when I suffered with a life-threatening foot infection. Due to Dr. Saffer's due diligence and prompt treatment, followed by a recommendation for immediate surgery, my foot and life were saved. I have and will continue to see Dr. Saffer for preventative podiatry care. My visit today was promptly accomplished with he utmost care. Thank you to Dr. Saffer and each staff member. I encourage all who need podiatry care to visit this practice.

I was visiting family from out of town, had an issue with my foot and found Dr. Saffer on the internet. Because of his outstanding reviews, I took a chance and am SO GLAD that he was able to see me. I have seen other podiatrists and none have been as detailed, caring and as knowledgeable as him. He took time to explain and WRITE DOWN (how many doctors do that) exactly what my issue was and how to treat it. If a follow up is needed, I will definitely drive the 2 hours to see him again. He was just that good. Awesome staff too.

Was suffering from a neuroma. Dr. Saffer injectected the site several times, with short term relief. Together, we decided that surgery was the next step. I am now approx. 6 weeks post op and am in awesome shape. Dr. Saffer is kind and listens closely to what you say. Very happy with the care, office staff, and most of all, Dr. Shaffer himself.

Dr. Saffer has taken care of my ingrown toenails. He has helped one of my sons with a bunion as well as ingrown toenails & my other son with orthotics & ingrown toenails also. Dr. Saffer has been nothing but attentive & gentle with the procedures. He also gives thorough advice for preventive measures. I like his staff as well. Very friendly & accomodating.
