Ratings for Dr. Gary S. Safier
Sandy is the rudest non-customer oriented person I've ever seen, I wish Dr. Safier would see these reviews and do something about it. He needs a succession plan. She seems to handle finance and after a year of receiving no bills, on two occasions has demanded money that wasn't due, or would not allow me to make an appointment. Linda and Vanessa are kind and attentive. Dr. Safier spends time to understand his patients, and calls at home with serious concerns. The bloodwork onsite is convenient and the staff pleasant. Yes, the wait is at times absurd, booking too many at once, but it is worth it.
Dr Safier is a true family doctor and has cared for my family for 13 years. He has extensive knowledge of most medical subjects, is quick to diagnose and excellent with follow up. By immediate diagnosis of some serious conditions he has served my family well and avoided delays and worsening conditions. He takes time to explain our conditions in terms we understand and is always friendly. I would thoroughly recommend Dr Safier to anyone seeking a solid GP for their family.
Dr. Safier couldn't even read my blood screening properly. Before my blood was processed, he prescribed Zanex for "depression" because I told him I was extremely fatigued. I didn't take it. Then he told me I had the Epstien Bar virus (later found out from a specialist that it was in my "blood history" that I didn't currently have it). Then I find out from another specialist that it was an under-active thyroid--hypothyroidism. If you want any pill your heart desires, he's your man. If you want someone to really look and listen to your ailments to find the proper diagnosis, this is NOT the man. He's not even an MD he's a "DO". He's running an old person weight loss clinic, not a general practice.
I find Dr. SAFIER TO BE EXTREMELY CARING AND KNOWLEDGEABLE-I DO HAVE TO WAIT SOMETIMES BUT HE TAKES HIS TIME AND EXPLAINS EVERY THING VERY CLEARLY. HE HAS NEVER RUSHED ME. THE OFFICE STAFF IS HELPFUL AND PROFESSIONAL. HE HAS EVEN FOUGHT WITH MY INSURANCE COMPANY WHEN THEY DID NOT WANT TO COVER ONE OF MY PROCEEDURES. I RECOMMEND DR. SAFIER VERY HIGHLY.
I'm so glad I found Dr Safier. After 8 yrs of having previous doctors do nothing but add additional Rx's every visit. He took the time to analyze my overall health situation. His weight loss program really works! In just 6 mos, he has helped me to lose 40 pounds, eliminate blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes meds... all under control... when all the other doctors would just say " you need to lose weight" that was obvious-- Not a solution. So you might have to wait a few minutes to see him, isn't it worth the time to have a caring professional on your side??? I highly recommend.
