Patient Comments (17)

Just met Dr. Jafri this morning in an initial consultation visit. We just got started so I can't speak to the skill level yet but I can give an account of his patient interaction skills. I've seen a good handful of doctors in the recent years and Dr. Jafri spent more time with me than any other...more

Dr Jafri has been my neurologist for 5 years. I have never questioned the service he provided. I left his office with an explanation and most of the time documents as well.

Dr. Jafri has been the only doctor able to help me manage my migraines. I have been to several other neurologists who don't want to take the time to listen to me. I appreciate his direct answers and honest approach to what really will work. He is really an investment!

This doctor has very poor bedside manners, zero compassion, doesn't look at you, doesn't explain things. Have left crying. Do NOT recommend Dr. Jafri.
