He was amazing with my father. He had no problem that there was always someone in with my father, sometimes two of us. He was amazing with all of us. He was blunt but compassionate. He didn't sugar coat things, but was always honest and kind when talking to us about things. He even gave us his own opinion if it was him what he would do. He even re-evaluated his own opinion when it seemed the chemo and radiation did it's job.

Dr. Safran is a wonderful oncologist. He has extensive expertise in pancreatic cancer, which I'm being treated for. He is very thoughtful and kind and takes the time necessary to explain treatment options. I opted for a clinical trial he is in charge of. I've been very happy with both Dr. Safran and the RI Cancer Center in East Greenwich.
