: We live in Abu Dhabi, and last minute we decided to book an appointment for my husband and I on the next day as it was a weekend, thus we both have time and needed a check-up. We booked with Doctoruna at 10pm on Friday night, and it is for 10am the next day in Dubai, just before we headed out, Dr. Safar confirmed our appointments at around 8am and we were so impressed with the efficiency. As soon as, we walked into Dr. Safar's clinic, we knew we made right choice, he was very professional, and explained our status so well, turned out my husband needed cataract surgery, so we book it with him for the following week, we will make a effort to return to this site, and write a review after the surgery. I will recommend Dr Safar to all my friends!

: My visit was ok with Dr Ammar's staff and great with himself particularly. The appointment was for my son and the way he works with Children from his tonality to choice of words was great. His explanation to me and my son were great. The only negative feedback was the wait time was 45 mins after the scheduled time to actually start seeing a nurse for the preliminary tests and at least another 30 mins before we saw the Dr for our actual consultation. He is obviously very busy which is understandable but nobody explains anything to you along the way to manage your expectations.

: My visit was handled in a warm, yet very professional manner, by all of the staff members that I came into contact with. Dr. Safar won me over with his thorough examination and his easy, confident manner. I will certainly recommend his services, in the future.
