Dr. Safar always takes his time to exam you from head to foot. Explains what he finds and goes over the avenues we can pursue. His office doesnt have any bells and whistles, but runs like a fine tuned machine. Sandra is very knowledgeable and is always willing to help with all of my questions. They work very well together. They both get an A++ from me :0

I've been seeing Dr. Safar for more than 10 years and he is very caring and thorough in explaining all medications, side effects, if we are changing them. He always encourages me to call the office if need be as well. I have follow up visits as necessary and his bedside manner is a little quirky......but there is nothing wrong with quirky!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Safar for a number of years now, he has helped me with a few problems . He is very understanding,listens to you and figures out your problem or can refer you to a Dr who can . He doesn't keep you waiting long and he doesn't rush you out he door. All Doctors should be as kind as Dr. Safar and that's why he is one of my favorites .

Terrible experience. He was condescending. Would only give us minimal feedback. My wife had a serious head injury and he never took it seriously. He would ask her a series of yes and no questions and then give us no feedback even if we asked for it. Appalling

I found Dr. Safar to have amazing attention to detail which is always important in a physician especially when dealing with a head injury. He listened to all my concerns and I left feeling very confident,
