Specialties

  • Infectious Disease

    An infectious disease specialist has specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of contagious diseases.
    Infectious diseases, also known as contagious or transmissible diseases, are those that stem from pathogen from a host organism. These infections may spread to other carriers through physical touch, airborne inhalation, bodily fluids or contaminated foods.
    Infectious disease specialists identify whether the disease is caused by bacteria, a virus, a fungus or a parasite often through blood tests and then determine what course of treatment, if any, is necessary.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

The Best Infectious Disease Doctor in New York City

I became Dr. Safdar's first patient when he had just arrived at Langone in the summer of 2011. I had been under the treatment of another NYU doctor who did not help me. He knew all about my disease as he had worked on it at Memorial. When I told him what medications the prior doctor wanted me to take, he said they would not help me..."don't take them" he advised. ..I've been under Dr. Safdar's wing ever since. I trust him and his wealth of knowledge. I think he is a genius as he knows the answers to everything. He's so nice, so kind, so easy to talk to. When I see him I feel as though I'm the only one that counts. He's a thoughtful, quiet, well-educated man. Dr. Amar Safdar is a born doctor and healer!
