Dayton, OH |
Dr. Safa always made a very quick decision based on my bloodwork and a brief interview. Great eye contact.
in Kettering, Ohio |
Rude and I do not recommend this doctor. He made me feel stupid that I have had swollen lymphnodes in my neck for 8 mos.and told me it's because "I was so skinny my veins were showing in my neck". I was referred to him because of a low WBC count and he made me feel as if I was wasting his time.
