How was your experience with Zain Al-Safi at UCLA?
He explains everything so thoroughly and makes sure all of our questions have been answered. He is always in direct, prompt contact with me, which I really appreciate. Additionally, and importantly, I really feel that he is going out of his way to make sure that nothing is missed in determining how/why things have not gone the way we expected. His treatments are evidence-based, and he knows what he's doing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Zain Al-Safi at UCLA?
Dr Al-Safi has always made me feel like one of his top priorities - he is in constant direct communication with me, usually via phone or sometimes email.

Pros: Evidence-based medicine, though you are really treated like a person. Dr and nurse a very personable and easy to communicate with. Made me feel well taken care of.
Con: Takes a little bit of time to get through to a human on the scheduling line. Better to make apt on way out of the clinic, or on the portal.
