Dr. Safier is a pleasant, positive man who is easy to talk to and very respectful. We trust him to be our child's neurologist and respect him. He treated our son excellently with appropriate communication and feedback.

I was happy about the thoroughness of the questions, especially initially from the resident, as he was able to spend time asking a lot of questions and was able to filter what was most important for what was going on with my daughter to relay to the provider for most efficient use of our time with him. I also found the provider very gracious in listening to my complaints about the difficult time we have had trying to address the problem with another field of medicine and whether he had other ideas.

Dr Safier almost seemed like he was trying to slow me down and to spend even more time with my son to make sure he had all the info he needed to see if there was anything else he could help with. He respected my son and his thoughts.
