What People Say About Dr. Douha Safar, MD

If I could give this office a 0, I would. With all the complaints they get about the front desk receptionists, you'd think they'd address that issue. I have seen Dr. Safaar a couple of times now for PCOS and every single time I am rushed out without any questions being answered. She orders me more and more blood work every time and never addresses the results or tells me how to deal with this. I called today and got the busy signal until 1:30. They leave for lunch early and stay late or at least

i absolutely love her. she listens to my symptoms, never made me feel like I was being dismissed like sooo many other doctors do. she took the time to sort out my meds after several other doctors dismissed my side effects. I have recommended her to multiple other people.

My biggest complaints about doctors is that they totally don't understand when you have/do something out of the ordinary. Dr. Safar was purposefully thick-headed about the fact that my blood sugar chart was slightly (and I do mean SLIGHTLY) different from her own and claimed she couldn't understand it. Also, I am a well controlled diabetic and she was unable to wrap her head around it. OR, she was like many doctors and wanted to be the smartest person in the room. Avoid her!!!!!
