“Excellent neurologist. Extremely friendly and listened to everything I had to say regarding my current issues. He examined me and we talked about what he thought was the probable cause. After an MRI it turns out he was spot on. Thank you Dr Saifee. I’d highly recommend him to anyone who thinks they may have some neurological problems, you’ll be in safe hands“
