January 30, 2014

Dr. Sarfati listened to my description of my problem for a long time. When he realized that my needs were out of his purview, he arranged for me to see the appropriate person immediately. I really appreciated his help, because I had come up from St. George for the appointment. He saved me a second trip.

October 28, 2013

it was very clear that Dr.Sarfati had not read my file as he seemed totally unaware of my initial visit to the cardio vascular unit and what had been initially done by Dr. Kinikini. I felt the attitude was totally unprofessional and that he viewed his seeing me as a waste of his time and there was no reason for me to come back for further evaluation.

Good

August 29, 2013

The medical staff that took care of me during my visit were very professional and courteous and spent the necessary time to ensure that I had a complete understanding of what was discussed during my visit.

August 23, 2013

I felt absolutely comfortable with everyone caring or advising me.

July 19, 2013

Could not have asked for better care !

July 12, 2013

Dr. Sarfati cares a lot about his patients as expressed by his willingness to listen to my concerns and questions. I trust him with his area of medical expertise.

June 18, 2013

December 17, 2012

November 12, 2012

Very happy with care giving.

September 05, 2012

great care!

July 06, 2012

Doctor seemed to be a bad mood, was border line rude. I will not return to see him. Both times I have met with him he has made me wait for long periods of times. On my first visit I waited 1hr and 20min before being called into an exam room.

May 15, 2012

Dr. Sarfati and his staff are the best. Professional, kind and caring.

January 24, 2012

Dr. Sarfati is clear, concerned, knowledgeable. It's a pleasure to see him. (It also helps that my problem remains neutral.)
