Fox Island, WA |
I would NOT recommend her as a doctor. She doesn’t know what she is doing. She is ALWAYS late. You have an appointment and she is always an hour late. If she was really a doctor they would be on time and not late all of the time. She also doesn’t diagnose you very well.

Dr. Safford is both professional and compassionate. I received excellent care both in the office and out. She consulted with a specialist during my office visit to ensure we were pursuing the correct course of diagnosis and treatment. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a call at home the next day (on the weekend no less), Dr. Safford wanted to follow up, make sure I was comfortable and let me know additional information she had learned while researching my diagnosis. I highly recommend.
"Thank you for your post! It's always good to hear that the work we have put into our processes is paying off with good service to our patients!"
