Dr. Hazim Safi saved my father's life!
In 1992 I was sent from a military hospital with a request that Dr Safi replace my aortic valve which he completed in a few hours along wth agraft to repair a double anyurisn of the asscending aorita 81 units of blood were used because of scars from previous heart surgery . My experience with him when I woke up was being chewed out as I needed a shave. 9 days after the surgery I returned home , 2 weeks later I went back to work 4hrs a day, 7 days later I went back full time. 22years later I am still around because of DR SAFI and his staff THANK YOU DR SAFI and your staff
My surgery was difficult and I experienced just about every possible complication. I made 5 return trips to the operating room after the initial procedure because of complications. My stay in hospital was almost 8 weeks. I slept through most of it but it was long and difficult for my family. Dr. Safi and his team were extraordinary. The level of care could not have been better. Dr. Safi made himself available to my family as often as my family needed. To this day they speak about him in ways usually reserved for saints. Today, two years later, I am almost as good as new and I owe a great debt to Dr. Safi and the great team he works with.
