About us

общий вид снаружиThe treatment and diagnostics clinic of Shafa was established in 1996, at the dawn of private medicine in Baku. 

Shafa's mainstream activity is to provide laboratory and diagnostics services to the general public and organizations of medical nature. Shafa's multiyear experience coupled with the state-of-the-art installations and instruments enable the clinic's highly qualified staff to do a wide-spectrum of complex assays with a high  degree of accuracy and great speed.
At the present time we can do a wide-spectrum of assays--from standard clinical blood analysis to rare, patient-tailored tests, while cleverly-designed result forms enable practitioners to diagnose and treat patients correctly. Due to the innovations in the field of diagnostics and in order to keep the hand on the pulse of the medical market, we constantly widen and alter our scope of research activities.
Along with experienced PhDs and MD's Shafa employs a number of young and talented specialists as well as laboratory technicians and engineers.
Shafa test results are acknowledged not only throughout Azerbaijan, but everywhere in Europe and CIS.

In addition to the strictly laboratory assays, Shafa does a number of treatment procedures such as X-ray, ultrasound, ECG, echo-ECG, REG, EFG, endoscopic procedures, plasmapheresis and osonotherapy. The out-patient department within Shafa employs an outstanding cohort of specialists too.
