I was diagnosed with an ovarian tumor the size of orange. I was able to see Dr Saffari right away.... He is the most soft spoken warm handed man I have had the pleasure of meeting. He examined me, I asked a lot of questions, and suddenly I was being scheduled for surgery the following Monday. He said "no need to wait, let's just get it done". Julie is great, but she is who does all the aftercare. He is terrific and gentle.

My mom was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2013. We had the option of Dr. Saffari or going to Seattle. We made the decision to stay local and go with Dr. Saffari. What a blessing that was. He was aggressive in the beginning which I think saved my Mom's life and gave us more time with her. I don't have enough words to explain the kindness, caring and loving practice as a whole. Julie his ARNP is the best! Mom Loved the whole staff and had complete faith in them. Excellent care!
