Literally told this guy for two years I had a discomfort on my right midsection. Ended up in the ER for an unrelated incident and had a catscan. Found a spot on my liver. Apparently my concerns were never enough to warrant a catscan. He also moved my appointments around. Showed up for the first appointment of the day when he felt like it. And even walked out of one headed off to vacation without telling me we were done. Then moved his office to a child size office Felt like a kindergartner in a kids desk. No bueno.

Dr. Safran is the sole practitioner at Sawkill Family Medicine where I have been a patient for over 30 years. That is a long time. He well knows my medical history and probably a lot more than I realize about me as a person as it is all wrapped up in my health. In times of need for acute and/or specialized care he has guided me through the options and the maze of specialists typically part of large impersonal corporate money mill medical facilities. His kind of immediate individual care is both invaluable and is generally a remnant of the bygone so called "Golden Era of Medicine" but in this case it still does flourish. And for that I am thankful.
