Radiation Oncology | Male | 39 years old

It is a special privilege to care for patients who have been diagnosed with cancer. I am deeply affected by the courage and resilience my patients demonstrate daily, which continually drives me to seek the best treatment options possible. I strive to provide state-of-the-art oncology care with genuine compassion and concern for the well being of my patients. I attended medical school at Harvard University and completed residency training at Duke University Medical Center, where I served as chief resident and later on faculty as an Assistant Professor. I have received numerous awards and research grants from national institutions, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), American Society of Clinical Oncology and the Radiological Society of North America. I currently serve on a national expert panel for radiation oncology and am involved in a variety of clinical trials in oncology. I have many peer-reviewed publications in oncology. I am Board-Certified in Radiation Oncology.Read more

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 and his staff are wonderful. Dr. Ghafoori took his time with me and answered all my questions.

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.
