I've been seeing Dr. Safarov for a little over a year now and he's done all 3 of my leg surgeries. I saw several other doctors for my knee problems and they would just give me the run around. Dr. Safarov actually listened to me and fixed the problem. He's a fantastic doctor!!

Dr. Safarov and his nurse Julie, both, went above and beyond to keep my young child comfortable and happy. Both helped put my own worries as ease. I felt they took their time and listened to every word I said. They are truly a great team of people. Thank you!
