Patient reviews for Dr. Shadan Safvati
I have never had an issue with any doctor I've booked through zocdoc before, but I would not recommend this place. The front desk staff didn't have any record of my appointment although I received multiple confirmations, and after discovering that it was in fact in their system, I waited around an hour to be seen. When I was seen, I had simple questions, yet the doctor was googling the information he needed in front of me and reciting what I had already read from google prior to the appointment back to me. He was very friendly, but it was frustrating to wait that long to have him appear unprepared. Overall, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
He’s the best! He is very thorough and actually cares to help your issue. The office women are amazing and so helpful and kind hearted .
This office is really great . The girls are very helpful that get all the parts put together and the doctor himself is so great ! He knows his stuff and is thorough and wants to hear your situation and help . Definitely recommend ! He’s for sure my new primary physician now
Excellent doctor and staff
Dr Safvati examined me and provided tests. I would return, but would have liked a faster turnaround with regard to test results or a more accurate indication about when to expect them.
Not a fan of Dr. Shadan Safvati nor his staff. Not accessible, didn't follow through on submitting prescriptions in a timely fashion. Always felt pressured to visit for an appointment in person so they could charge my insurance.
Dr. Safvati was receptive to my concerns, listened to everything i had to say, and was very thorough.
I was disappointed by the care I received. I have over 10 disabilities and 2 binders I carry with my medical paperwork. When I saw him, he didn't care to even talk about my current conditions or look at my records. He just ask what I needed and told me my time was up.
The reception/assistant had no regards for privacy and was asking bdays and medical problems outloud. Also, asked for cash payment. Incorrectly filled my name even though it is clearly reported online using Zocdoc.
Such a caring and knowledgeable doctor. I came in just for a concussion test and I left deciding to make Dr. Safvati my primary care doctor.
Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Great office and wonderful staff.
This was quite possibly the worst experience I have ever had at a doctor's office and would not recommend anyone visit Dr. Safvati. Context: I went in for a general check up and to talk about some back pain I had been having. First, the woman at the front desk was extremely curt and unprofessional. Never acknowledging anyone in the waiting room by name. Just saying things like "hey" or speaking in the general direction of people to say "give me your id." Then, when I was taken back to see the doctor, the same woman took my height, but forgot to take my weight and instead of taking me back to the scale (which was right next to where I had my height taken), she just asked me to estimate my weight. My blood pressure, heart rate were not taken. Finally, when I got to see the doctor, he shows up in a shabby labcoat, with a ripped off nametag - this is a small, cosmetic thing, but it makes a difference when you are going to see a professional doctor about your health. He checked my ear, nose, throat, and temperature - like usual, however, the thermometer used was a drugstore quality one like the one I have at home. Again, not a big deal, but when you are visiting a medical professional, you expect a certain level of quality. Up to this point, nothing indicated that this was a person who had gone through medical training or any additional insights. No work was done at the office - I had to go to another testing facility to get my blood drawn, etc. Finally, we got to discussing my back issues, which i explained to him I have seen other doctors about and even gone to PT for. His response? "I've seen many people like you - you all sit in front of computers all day. I recommend googling back stretches." GOOGLING BACK STRETCHES! Even after telling him i've been doing these stretches and reminding him I'd been to PT, that was still his response. After that, I asked him about acupuncture and if I could possibly be referred to an acupuncturist to try something different for my back. He said absolutely not and that my condition was not viral (not sure what that had to do with it) so he didnt feel I needed a referral. So no discussion, nothing - just straight "no." Then, when checking out, I was asked to pay in cash for my appointment. When I told the woman at the front that I didnt not bring cash, she exasperatedly began shuffling around the papers on her desk to find the SQUARE that I would need to swipe my card through. After finding that, she couldnt find the cell phone they use to process payments through Square. This is something that has never happened to me in a medical office. Being made to feel bad and like an inconvenience because I wanted to pay with credit card. When I went back to Dr. Safvati's office to pick up my lab results, he didnt even come to see me. His assistant just handed them to me, pointed out the scribbles on the sheet that indicated the doctor had reviewed the results and that was that. THEN, when i asked to have a copy of the results, the assistant again made this seem like a big deal and that I was a huge inconvenience. After making the copies, I noticed that she had forgotten to copy two of the pages from the original report (b/c she didnt want to have to make front and back copies.) When I pointed that out, she told me I didnt need those pages! I dont need a complete copy of my testing results?? I finally convinced her to please make those copies so I could have the full report. Basically, this experience did not feel like I was seeing a trained medical professional - instead, the work done and quality of treatment could have been done by someone pretending to be a doctor. - Shabby lab coat with ripped off name tag - being asked to estimate my weight - drug store thermometer - no blood work done at office - being told to Google exercises to deal with my back pain - absolutely no discussion about referrals to a specialist - No follow up by the doctor - being asked to pay cash - incomplete reports being given by the receptionist/assistant. Please do yourself a favor and find another doctor who will treat you with respect.
Dr. Safvati is an awesome doctor. My problem is with his office assistant. She tends to be rude, and non-responsive, as if you don't matter. I have sent a few emails and she claims not to have received them, until I mention that I also had another doctor contact them via email and then all of a sudden, she remembers my email. It has been a long, drawn out, combative experience with the office assistant. I'm certain Dr. Safvati will do nothing about her and as a result of my anger and frustration with dealing with her, I recently opted to change physicians. I really, really like Dr. Safvati. He's a good and caring person, but his front office assistant makes for a negative and stressful experience.
Dr. Safvati and his staff were fantastic! He patiently answered all of my questions and was able to discuss all types of options with me. I am thankful to have found him and look forward to being a patient for years to come.
Not great with paperwork or communication.
Dr. Safvati was professional and a pleasure to visit. Not one negative can be said about the doctor. The receptionist on the other hand has a very negative attitude and was just flat out rude for the ~20 minutes I was within the waiting room.
I just don't like that you can hear everything going on in the treatment rooms from the waiting room. I could literally hear all of the concerns of the person that went before me. Meaning, I know people heard mine too. They should play light music or something. Otherwise, the doctor is very nice.
I thought the Doctor was right, excellent analysis of my issue with good explanation of treatment. Wait time was not bad at all from the scheduled time.
Very nice doctor. Kind staff! I was really in a pickle and they got me in quick and got me all taken care of. Dr. Safvati was more than happy to refill my medications with the complete medical history I provided. New in town and very grateful. Thanks so much!
I visited Dr Safvati as a new patient - he was kind and attentive and treated me as if he had been my Dr for years. Highly recommended!
The office was a pleasant atmosphere. Very friendly receptionist who was helpful in filling out paperwork for my daughter and I. Dr. Safvati was very nice and worked quick. Im not a fan of needles, but he made me feel comfortable and the whole process of blood being drawn and my tb test took a total of 2 minutes. Highly recommend from my experience here.
Excellent doctor/office/experience. Highly recommend.
Very nice and thorough doctor. Will be back.
Polite and very pleasant.
Dr. Safvati is great! He is patient with you, yet efficient. I never felt rushed, but visits are also no longer than necessary. I usually stress before going to the doctor, but his excellent bedside manner makes it a lot more painless!
He had a great bedside manner. Very helpful and did not rush the appt. even though I was the last patient on a Saturday. His receptionist was lovely too! I highly recommend him.
Dr. Safvati is wonderful and helped me greatly with respiratory issues. He takes his time and get to the core issue of the problem, The office is run efficiently by his lovely assistant.
Dr. Safvati is hands down the best doctor I've been too. He is laid back, calm and actually one of the most down to earth doctors I've come across. He is smart, explicates things very candidly for his patients and is always available. He is the best doctor around and I encourage everyone to go see him. Also, his assistant is great too! Really cares about the patients.
I highly praise Dr. Safvati and his secretary for their kindness and generosity. I have been to this clinic multiple times over the past month, and they are always welcoming and promptly address my needs.
This doctor is difficult to work with, unreasonable and does not want to listen to his patients. Adding to my visit was the unprofessional receptionist with her inappropriate behavior. She asked where I was from then talked in her native language with other working there behind the scenes where patients could hear everything while sitting patiently in the waiting room. To top it off, the long wait time did not add to my visit.
So the thing is it seems like the office does cash only payments and tells people to bring cash a day before. After that if you are insured, the receptionist thinks you are dumb and asks for you the entire 100 dollar deductible instead of just the copay which you should have paid because the doctor is a in network doctor. I mean if the goal is to just cater to no insurance patients, then they shouldn't rob the insurance paying folks. The doctor was good but I would never go back. Waited almost an hour, the woman at the desk only seemed t like patients who gave her cash and spoke in farsi.
Very Accommodating and pleasant staff. The doc was great and actually listened to what I had to say and asked plenty of questions. Felt like I had his full attention. May have just been the day, but had to wait around for about an hour to get into my apt. All things considered though, a great visit!
I am very grateful that Dr. Safvati squeezed me in before leaving for vacation. It was a last minute appointment and he was very caring. Will be going back for blood work in two weeks.
