01/03/13 3 3 4 5 Dr. Saffran was wonderful with my two children on 2 separate occasions. His nurse was also very sweet w/my girls. It is the check-in person that on both visits was unfriendly. No smile, slow paced & not very helpful with a question about a question on the new patient form. I can understand an off day but she was consistent on both visits. We've dubbed her Ms Grumpy. Everyone else was great.

23/01/13 4 5 5 5 My daughter's pediatrician recommended Dr. Safran for her recurrent ear infection she used to deal with it. Years later I have allergy issues and I came back to me. He is very caring, soft spoken doctor. He listens to you and give you several option for treatments and test. I would strongly recommend him for any age patient.I wish all doctors have a fraction of his sensitivity. =)

05/12/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Saffran is what every doctor should strive to be. He is punctual, has great beside manners and always has time to explain many questions. He is very knowledgeable, quick, confident and very friendly. He has a well run office, and his hand picked staff during the day of surgery is excellent. This medical practice is a model on how all others should run.

25/10/11 5 5 5 5 This was the 2nd visit for my 88 year old mother. Dr. Saffran is patient, kind, and treated my mother so well- we felt very comfortable with his manner and knowledge. I would highly recommend him for any ear, nose or throat problem. We had a very short wait time and everyone treated us extremely well.

24/09/11 5 5 5 5 I don't know how much I paid as the bill hasn't come. My grandson had sinus surgery with this doctor and I had dizziness that was treated successfully. This office is quiet and very pleasant and all doctors fantastic.

19/05/10 5 5 5 5 One of the Best doctors with the Best bedside manner that I have experienced. Dr. Saffran is the doctor I would choose for any Ear Nose or Throad issues. He cares and always allows the patient to help with the decisions and makes sure they understand what is happening in your body. I trust him with everything he says since he helped my now 15 year old when she had a serious spenoid issue which required her to stay in the hospital.
