Being one of Dr. Ghafoori's cervical cancer patients was a privilege. I was able to experience another human being that truly genuinely cares about the well being & health of others that have been diagnosed with such an ugly disease. Dr. Ghafoori's knowledge & ability to diagnose & comfort an individual at the same time is truly a gift. I am so glad I was led to his practice because he was terrific as well as his surrounding Dr. assistance & other clinical staff members. I would highly recommend him to others if they have been diagnosed with cancer & had to have radiation treatments. Thank you for all that you do daily

Dr. Ghafoori, along with his nursing staff, radiation technicians and support staff have been incredible. They have made every effort to address any concern or issues I have had. My results have been great, much to the credit of this wonderful doctor, and I know that I am in very good hands. I always feel confident that he has my best interests in mind. I can not recommend highly enough this doctor and his office of professional staff.

Less than 1 if possible. Was talked about as though I was not in the room. First treatment I was left in an alcove in the hallway with my legs spread covered by a sheet. Most traumatic experience of my Cancer treatment. I should have refused treatment after first Brachytherapy nightmare. I would like to express my gratitude to the external Radiological team. They were very kind.

A very caring doctor. He treated my vestibular schwannama successfully with the cyberknife radiation. I would recommend him and this treatment to anyone who is a candidate for this type of treatment. The treatment killed the cyst, the numbness on my face is gone. Being very optimistic that the hearing will come back.

I had radiation therapy for cancer in my prostate bed/pelvic area. Dr. Ghafoori was very thorough and extremely knowledgeable in developing an the individual radiation plan for me and my specific medical case. He went out of his way to fully explain what was needed to treat my specific case, the possible side effects and fully answered all the many questions that I had about this treatment. In addition, he did all this with a genuinely caring and truly compassionate manner from his heart.

After speaking with my Neurologist i was told to try a procedure called CyberKnife and was sent to Dr Ghafoori's office to start they were all very welcoming and understanding of my needs. I had or (have) Trigeminal Neuralgia and it was the worst hell I've ever been through.When i got to meet Dr Ghafoori he spoke to me in a very calm and intelligent way on what they were going to do and possible outcomes. I am now pain free 3 months after Thank You doctor you gave me my life back.

Dr. Ghafoori is pleasant to deal with when he is in the room with you as a patient. He listens well and has good feedback. The reason I can't give him 5 stars though is that he keeps patients waiting way too long. His Nurse Practitioner, Kerry, comes in to see the patient first and pretty promptly. She is really wonderful in her role as well. But I have waited anywhere from 25-50 minutes for Dr. Ghafoori to come in after her, and that is very frustrating, especially with no apology.
