Although the nurse performed the procedure, the doctor took the time to check on my Dad and talk with him about the process. The office was very good about giving us available times to follow up if needed.

We arrived early for our appointment, but it was over an hour before we saw the doctor. Also, it was almost impossible to book the return appointment given the doctor's packed schedule.

This is a well run office (at least it appeared that way on my first visit). Staff is friendly and helpful. I arrived early and was actually seen BEFORE my scheduled appointment time! I don't think that's ever happened to me before. Dr. Safir is very personable and seems to be very knowledgeable. He asked good "probing" questions to help him diagnose my illness. The only negative I can think of (and this is really "nitpicking") is the tiny parking lot. But there is a valet on duty which makes this more manageable.

Dr Safir, Took the time to review my current well being and status results from an procedural testing that recently was done. He discussed the outcome of those results and our probable next steps that were available to me for my situation. He also took time to explain what options we have as a starting point or if any reoccurring issues arise as well as prescribing medications to assist me currently and in the future for my comfort. Upon leaving my appointment I felt very comfortable knowing that he and his office would be available to assist me on short notice.

Dr. Safire is one of those rare physicians one finds these days - he is soft spoken, yet lets me knows what is going on. He never rushes me, and is willing to spend as much time as needed. Can't praise him enough.

The waiting room is always standing room only. It appears the dr. overbooks patients. The dr. has no bedside manner, is very standoffish, not warm; and gets his info re the patient mixed up. He is not willing to discuss the situation and walks out with no follow up discussion . Therefore, I don't know what to do, although there is need for a follow up MRI which he did not address.

Dr. Safir' nurse is so very helpful and efficient! I was hesitant to continue with this Doctor once he moved offices but I'm glad I stayed . He retained his own staff of Martha and Joey and they are so understanding to my condition and courteous with my time. When I see Dr. Safir I feel he goes the extra steps to ensure I am understanding everything we discuss.
