Our experience was terrible. Went with my husband to the VA hospital. He was assigned to Dr. Zafar. It was very tense, he didn’t introduce himself, was very disrespectful. We didn’t expect warm and fuzzy but wanted a conversation and a path forward. No diagnosis, my husband felt belittled, absolutely no help! Dr. Zafar literally kicked us out. We had to schedule another appointment with another physician (that appointment was very successful). Waste of everyone’s time! Very unhappy.

Dr. Zafar has been a tremendous help with my kidney stones. It was a very painful condition and he got me in the same day and did the treatment. Thankfully the stone broke and I was able to go home the same day. I cannot thank him enough for his care that he gave me.

I have seen Dr. Zafar for 11 years with h/o bladder cancer that he diagnosed. Since then he has checked me regularly with bladder exams and X rays and kept things under control. I used to be a smoker and stopped ot as he told me that it will make the bladder cancer come back He has kept me on track and I am very thankful to him for taking such good care of me,.

I had urine problems and could not pee. Eventually I went to the ER and they put a catheter in and sent me to Dr. Zafar. He did tests and recommended surgery. He did the surgery with in a few days and then thankfully had the catheter removed. I have never peed so well!! Excellent Doctor!

I had a lot of pain with kidney stones and was referred to Dr. Zafar from ER. He did the lithotripsy procedure the next day. I passed the stone pieces over the next week and had no pain. He also did my urine test to find out why I am making the stones. Very good Doctor. Recommend him!

I have had ED issues for 10 years since my prostate surgery. Medicine had failed and vacuum pump did not work. I heard about Dr. Zafar from a friend who had a penile implant surgery. I had the surgery done 2 months ago. My sex life is back and I now wonder why did I wait so long. Excellent physician and great bedside manner.

I saw the Doctor for prostate cancer. He has been treating it for 5 years and has kept my PSA under control. I am very satisfied with the treatment he has given me.

I had a very difficult kidney stone. Even though everything went wrong he stuck with me. I consider him the best doctor in the whole world because he is available and sees you as a person not just a patient.

I had a vasectomy done by Dr Zafar. The check in procedure was smooth. Nurses were very helpful. He spent 15 minutes explaining the whole procedure. The vasectomy itself was a breeze. I spent the whole time in conversation and before I knew it the procedure had finished. I had no pain and after the procedure have done well. No hesitation in recommending him or his staff!

I see Dr Zafar for low Testosterone. I used to feel all blah and he did investigations to find out why. Once he found out, I was started on treatment and it made a huge difference in how I felt. I have a lot more energy and zip. Both Dr Zafar and his staff are excellent.

I saw 2 urologists and a urogynaecologist in town for my bladder problems. I was told by all 3 that everything was normal and there is nothing more they could do. I came to see Dr Zafar and he diagnosed me with interstitial cystitis. I am on medications and bladder treatment. It has changed my quality of life! .

I came to see Dr Zafar for urine leakage problems. He was very helpful. He made me get off caffeine and bingo my problem settled. He did not push expensive medicines. Just getting off caffeine made the difference!

I was referred to Dr Zafar by my doctor for a swelling in my sac. He was very reassuring and took a lot of time talking to me and then got my tests done. Thankfully it all came back OK. He gave me my options. I was also given his cell phone in case I had questions later.He took good care of me.

I have had problems with erections for years. A friend who had seen Dr Zafar for the same problem recommended him. He was very patient and spent a lot of time with me. He suggested a penile implant. I had it done 3 months ago and my sex life is back in action. He did a great job for me.
