We are so glad that Dr. Safier is our daughter's neurologist. He has provided the care and medication possible to make her first two years of high school free of any absences which is remarkable due to the severity of her migraines before becoming his patient.

Both the nurse and Dr Safier took the time to talk to us about our concerns and we talked in a manner we could understand. They also took the time to talk to our son and made sue he understood what they were doing.
