What People Say About Dr. Farouc Jaffer, MD
Reply
a heart patient for about 10 years /2 heart attacks and 8 stents, i saw many Heart doctors. Although all of them were doing their very best, I can say that Dr. Jaffer was the one that initiated a break-through in my treatment. He is smart, knowledgeable, and has the courage to take the right decision at the right time. sometimes i wait 30+min in the room to see him but it doesn't bother me. it means he is taking the extra mile with the patient before me. he calls and emails to check on me!

Dr. Jaffer operated on me several times and eventually opened up my occluded right coronary artery without resorting to open heart surgery. This has made an immense difference in my quality of life allowing me to continue my career, take care of my family, and thoroughly enjoy the latter years of my life. He is an amazingly caring individual who is passionate about his work and totally committed to his patients' well-being. I feel blessed to have had him as my interventional cardiologist.
