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 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!
