Sometimes, he can be very brusque, almost irritating, however he appears to be very proficient in his practice. Overbooking is quite a problem (bring along a book or crossword puzzle). His staff is well trained and perky, unlike their boss.
We were highly recommended to use Dr. Safran by our internist and other happy patients. He performed cataract surgery on my Mom and Dad with excellent results. His expertise and chair-side manner are outstanding. We are so lucky we found this incredible man, physician and scholar! We would highly recommend him to all. The wait was long but boy was it worth it for a lifetime results.
