Extremely nice, great bedside manners, one of the best Dr.experience I have encountered during my four year battle with breast cancer and the unfortunate aftermath that Chemo and radiation has left me with. I under went a Hysterectomy due to the high risk of my aggressive cancer metastasizing , Dr. Saffari is the one I chose for my surgery. He has been rated one of the best Doctors by far in his profession. I assure anyone who has to undergo cancer treatment and/ or operations , in my case , a total Hysterectomy, you are in one of the greatest Doctor's hands. I would also recommend him as an oncologist.
Like most women meeting with a GYN/Oncologist...I was scared. I had a CT scan that showed a mass that was suspicious for ovarian cancer. I work in the Franciscan system and Dr. Saffari came highly recommended by my peers. My initial consult was not what I expected. He talked to me about some pretty tough things, like surgery, cancer, chemo and any other treatment I may need should this mass be malignant. He made a difficult conversation possible, and by the time I left the appointment I felt like I could do anything, and that he would be right there with me no matter the outcome of this surgery. His bedside manner and compassion for his patients is outstanding. His office staff are helpful and are right on it if you need something or call because you just have questions about something. Everything is explained up front, there are no surprises, and being a nurse I hate surprises. I would highly reccomend this surgeon if you are facing a GYN surgery.
