in Poughkeepsie, NY |
She is very caring and seems to know exactly what fears or apprehensions I have. She is thorough and attentive during scary times on off hours as well. I am so happy I finally found the right doctor
in Hopewell Jct, NY |
I had a baby in December of 2016. I am 43 years old and have been going to one of the large practices here in Dutchess County. It is now August and I have been have bleeding issues since my daughter was born. Long story short, Dr. Safajou, on the 1st visit was thourough, and seemed to even know just from my symptoms, that there was a problem and was able to quickly diagnose me. She has been able to fix what has been going in for 8 months in the course of 2 visits!

She is friendly and knowledgeable and doesn't rush during the office visit. Very professional and compassionate. The office is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. I had a great visit.

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.
in Hyde Park, NY |
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!
