Dr. Saftchick in my opinion is an excellent doctor, My boyfriend went to him for a regular consultation due to back pain, But Dr. Saftchick suspected he had something far more serious and sent him to the emergency room immediately, due to his great response my boyfriend was saved from a near fatal condition, thank you very much Doctor Saftchick.

My experience was terrible at this office. My appointment was at 4:45p, I got there at 4:21p and at 6:30p still hadn't been called. When I requested my insurance card they were refusing. Worst place

Please don't go to this doctor, he makes you do a bunch of text that you really don't need just for him to get money. And he doesn't know how to explain whats going on with you

Old style practice that won't even consult with you over the phone after being a patient for two years - even when immobilized with a stress fracture. Dr. Saftckick seems like is is guessing more often than given you a diagnosis. Very underwhelmed with how the receptionists treated me. I had to get a referral last time I was there and they legitimately asked me to call them next Thursday to remind them because they wouldn't remember otherwise.
