Dr. Sayfo is friendly and professional. He shows compassion for me, as a patient, and radiates a feeling that he is very knowledgeable in his field of Cardiology. He is quick to answer questions and expresses his views in a way that is easy to understand. I am very glad he was the doctor that cared for me in my first experience with heart issues.

Dr Sayfo has been extremely caring, professional, personable and gracious in providing excellent care in clear terms relating to the plan of treatment, testing, results and next steps. He has given clear direction as to my current condition, possible changes and actions to take for any emergency. We felt that his concern is genuine and that he is working in our best interests. We are very pleased.Have already recommended BSW, the Legacy Heart Center, and Dr Sayfo specifically to others.

I have already recommended Dr. Sayfo to my daughter. First of all, he is a very nice man. He listens, gently remarks what he feels needs to be tested, and then discusses what is wrong. He presents what he wants done and expects you to follow up. And, he has a sense of humor that many lack. When you are not feelill ng well or are sad, a gentle attitude goes a long way. He also is not swayed from his feelings about what should or should not be done for a patient just because the patient wants it done. I have a lot of respect for him.
