Dr. Safia Tasneem has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Pap Smear

First off I wouldn't let a family doctor give me a pap smear, that's what GYN specializes in I recommend Dr. John Niles. So far Dr. Tasneem as a Family Practice Physician she's alright with me.

DO not go see her

When I first arrived I was impressed with the office staff and nurses. I went in for a physical and they did things such as a ekg before I was even seen by the doctor. I thought that was thorough. It all went down hill from there. I ended up waiting after that initial testing for over an hour for the doctor. When I finally got into her she did not listen to my conserns at all. When I reported a issue I had she didnt even examine me and blew it off. She did a pap smear and almost made me jump off the table because she jabbed me internally with the swab. I literally screamed out loud and I have a VERY high pain tolerance.
