Dr. Jafri treated my husband when he was in the hospital. I feel that he is very good at his job and that he takes the time to really listen to what you are saying. He is determined to find out what is causing a problem so that the appropriate treatment can be administered. I would recommend Dr. Jafri to my friends and family.

I have been having pain for quite a while. My PCP referred me to a neurologist. I went to SLU Care and they set up an appointment with Dr. Jafri and I am so happy that I made that decision. My first appointment lasted about 1 1/2 hours trying to figure out why I had this pain. He fit me in for a follow up 2 weeks later to make sure I had some relief from this annoying pain.

A great Dr. He is never hurried, always listens attentively, & is very thorough in his exams. He has a great since of humor and is very Personable. He explains what he believes is causing your issue(s), as well as treatment options. If he believes you need to see another Dr. As well he makes that happen. I suffer with severe headaches & Dr. Jafri gave my wife & I his personal Cell phone number & said to call anytime . This has been a great help when I have had to go to then ER For the Drs. there

Dr. Jafri is a very caring & personable doctor with a good sense of humor. He comes out to greet you just before your apptm. & takes you to the exam room himself. He is very thorough with his examinations & listens with attention to what you have to say. He never makes you feel like he is hurring through your apptm. He asks pertinent questions & gives you the reason for why he does things. As well as explain what he believes to be the source or cause of your health issues. Not enough rm! Grt Dr!

I have been under Dr. Jafri care since 2010 He was the one who first discovered that I have MS, He has always been upfront and honest with me, He is a outstanding human being. I was in and out of the hospital like a revolving door, If it wasnt for Dr. Jafri telling me about different treatment options I dont think I would be here today, After finding a treatment that was best for me I can honestly say I have not had any problems with my MS. Thank you Dr. Jafri

Dr. Jafri is wonderful. Not only is he a phenomenal physician in terms of his knowledge, he really listens to you, no matter how much time it takes. He is so down to earth (and hilarious), and that goes a long way with me. On more than one occasion, Dr. Jafri has gone well out of his way to help me. I've seen other neurologists in the St. Louis area to treat my migraines and POTS, but I'm sticking with this one.
He cares about what's going on with me. He's very smart and will come up with the right patient specific treatment. He listens to my symptoms and modifies the treatment based on what I say is going on. Scheduling can sometimes be tough, but that's because he's a highly requested neurologist. He makes time for his patients, and he will help you.

My first appointment with Dr Jafri started off shaky. He was a bit late. However, he won me over quickly. He was thoroughly informed of my medical history, and asked lots of questions, and explained things. He did not rush the appointment, or any appointment after. He has solved my problem, I would recommend him, in a heartbeat.
in St.Louis Mo |
I started off thinking he was great but he left the room and came back very rude and arrogant. I tried asking some questions and he was very short and not willing to help me at all. One of the most bizarre appts I have ever had. I will be following up with the department head and take it from there. Stay clear of this group.
