Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Safko is the best she: listens, smart, caring,
I have known Dr. Safko for about 12 years. I trust her with my heart issues and she’s been there for me. She’s straight forward, very very smart, can be funny, no b.s. or candy coating.

She is wonderful!
She listens and is super pleasant, she is understanding and offers great advice. She also referred to me another cardiac specialist who treated my problem and I have had zero complications nor return of any symptoms. I am so grateful to them both.

Absolutely the Best!
She has a quality that is unequalled by any other doctor. She takes the time need to discuss any of your health issues. She has given me ideas on other health issues, and they have been spot on. I wish I could just meet with her once a month to go over all my health-related questions. I trust her completely.

She listens carefully, thinks broadly and intelligently, and carefully fits the treatment to the patient. Coordinates well with the primary physician. 5 stars is an understatement.

She spends time during the appointment talking with you to get all the important information about your lifestyle that may impact your treatment. Easy to communicate and her team is also excellent. Highly recommended.

Last week I had a pacemaker implant. Unfortunately immediately afterward problems arose and I was readmitted to INOVA Loudoun Hospital. Dr. Sofko, of Virginia Heart, was the attending cardiologist. She was caring, concerned, informative, and above all, very professional. She was very detailed in our discussion of what happened and the way forward. Plus she has a wicked sense of humour and is a knowledgeable historian. Virginia Heart should be honored to have her on the staff.
