    in Springboro, OH |
    I saw Dr. Safa while in Sycamore Hospital after a very scary pulmonary embolism. I liked him immediately. He was extremely professional, while at the same time, very caring. He addressed all concerns and had time for questions. My husband asked a lot of them. Unlike some specialists I have seen, he took the time to explain everything in a way we would understand, but was not condescending in the least. I will be seeing him for my outpatient care for the upcoming year and I highly recommend.

    Dr. Safa always made a very quick decision based on my bloodwork and a brief interview. Great eye contact.

    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.
