Dr. Safajou is a very caring and smart doctor. I don’t feel rushed during my visits and she takes time to listen to me and answer my questions. She has great bedside manners and I highly recommend her.

Even though she is a very nice & thorough I am changing my doctor for a few reasons. I never had any issue before she has changed her office to Care Mount Medical. My lab bill was sent to a non-participating lab. I called to question this and was hung up on. I made an appointment because I'm having medical issues, waited almost 3 weeks & my appointment was canceled. Now they want me to wait another 2 weeks almost. Too bad because I really liked her.

Dr.Safajou is an amazing doctor. She makes you feel comfortable and answers any and all questions. I love that she has her own practice so one does not need to worry as to who will be on call the day you go into labor. The staff is also just as friendly. I have no complaints and would absolutely recommend her!
