The best specialist! Very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to getting to my little girl's problem.

6/12/2018

yes yes yes I sure would recommend her!

6/2/2018

She told me what was needed to be done on my son, didn't really ask my opinion. I was unclear about the xray to the left hand, wrist. What that could tell us. She didn't explain like I would have liked her to. Other than that, she was awesome. I was very impressed with her.

5/9/2018

She listened to what I had to say and responded.

5/7/2018

We like Dr. Safta. However, when telling someone they may have to deal with a gluten free diet, a little sympathy might help.

4/20/2018

Very pleased with *Dr. Safta and her team. She listened to my concerns about my daughter and got started on a treatment plan. She has helped my daughter have a better quality of life, and I'll forever be grateful.

3/5/2018

Dr. softer has changed our life in a very positive way. I can't say enough good things about her and what she has done for our family.

2/28/2018

Again, Dr. Anca Safta is one of the very best doctors I've dealt with. She is excellent at her job and does a very good job with helping both her minor patients and their parents understand everything about Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

1/9/2018

*Dr. Safta, MD is an awesome doctor!!!! I would recommend her to anyone!!!

12/17/2017

Dr. Safta establishing excellent rapport with the children and families she works with. She sees three of my children. I am beyond grateful for her attention to detail, listening to my concerns as a mother for my children, and her excellent medical expertise. She has been a blessing to our family over the years!

11/30/2017

If anybody else had the same problem I would recommend her.

10/30/2017

Dr. Safta is an excellent pediatric specialist. She listens to our 16 year olddaughter's concerns about the long term impact of her disease and is always genuinely caring, encouraging, patient and very willing to take the time to explain things to our daughter and to us. She never makes us feel like we're asking too many questions and that is so refreshing and reassuring!

10/29/2017

Dr. Safta is the best GI professional we have ever had and we have had many all over the country!! Her ability to think outside of the box and to understand Christopher has made an exceptional improvement! Also the program allowing a note taker .....freeing her to focus on the patient is perhaps the BEST and efficient implementation I have seen in healthcare in many years.I can not stress enough how helpful and important this is .I want this program to be shared and become the standard in all programs throughout the country. We need to make this happen.

10/17/2017

Dr Safta was wonderful! She spent plenty of time talking about our concerns for my daughter and she also made great suggestions for her care. Dr Safta had an assistant being her transcriptionist and it allowed her to interact with our family without being glued to the computer. That is very important.

9/26/2017

Dr. Anca Safta is one of the most impressive doctors we've ever met. She is amazing at her job and her level of caring and expertise is very much appreciated. We feel incredibly lucky to have had her randomly assigned to our son when he was admitted to Baptist for tests. The other GI doctors were all great, as well, but Dr. Safta is a very special care provider! We value having her in charge of our son's recently-diagnosed (life-long) disease.
