    I had my first consultation with Dr Saifee yesterday and I am so thankful that I saw him. From the onset he had a highly professional and compassionate manner in identifying and examining the problem. The medical issue has been causing me distress for just over a year and Dr Saifee was able to provide a diagnosis and a future treatment plan. His thorough approach and his meticulous listening skills were evident throughout the entire consultation. It was very clear to see that he is passionate about providing the best care possible. Thank you Dr Saifee!

    I am writing to you on behalf of my father. You have been in our thoughts and prayers every day from the time you started treatment with my father. The reason why I am writing to you is to thank you, but thank you does not come close to what we would like to say, there are no words to convey what you have done to help my father in his hour of need. If it wasn't for your professionalism, intelligence, quick thinking, quick action and kindness my father would have surely died. We have been very lucky and blessed to have you as our Doctor. We shall never forget you and what you have done for my father. You are a very conscientious Doctor and a special human being .

    Hi I met Dr Saifee for neurological advice after fainting. He was reassuring, conducted all examinations required and gave me real good advice for treatment follow up. I managed to be referred for MRI on the same day and I received my results in a timely manner. Overall, it was a real good service I was provided, and I never felt anxious or stressed about the outcome because Dr Saifee had reassured me after conducting his examinations.
