    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.

    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.

    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.

    *Dr. Safta was wonderful. Very kind to my son. Explained things to him. Moved quickly on getting things done and finding out what was wrong with him.

    We love Dr. Safta! She is so knowledgeable, courteous, and caring!

  • 6/17/2017

    Dr. Safta is very good at explaining and listening to concerns and very time efficient.

  • 3/27/2017

    I would highly recommend Dr. Safta to anyone whose child was having gastrointestinal issues. She is always kind and caring with our daughter and speaks to her in a very professional and encouraging manner. She answers any questions she has, along with the questions my husband and I may have. It is clear that she cares about the health of each of her patients along with the wellbeing of their families.

  • 3/7/2017

    After our last hospital stay a few weeks ago and the several issues we had, Dr Safta listened to our concerns and was very respectful of our situation. we very much appreciated all the time she spent with us. she is a very caring Doctor.

  • 3/1/2017

    *Dr. Anca Safta is a terrific doctor! We love her!!
