in Pittsburgh, PA |
I have se n her for year for thyroid issues leading to infertility. But my numbers are good now and I am pregnant.
Finleyville, PA |
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!!!!!
