She is GREAT but the wait is VERY long!

My back surgery has been a real problem and I've been unable to get help. She tried an injection and explained why it didn't work. She sent me to PT with a person she recommended. Finally I am getting better!!i I am very grateful for Dr. Safman.

Stay away. She is not interested in you as a patient, she is only interested in herself. Find a doctor who cares about you. Clearly, it is not this doctor.
