Dr. Kafie provided exceptional care to my mother. She presented with a complex medical vascular situation and he resolved her situation by utilizing his experience and clinical skills. He has the ability to communicate with his patients and their family members in a way that can be understood. Dr. Kafie is one of the most caring, compassionate , and skilled physicians in our community. Bambi - February 2019

After several years of frustration, Dr. Kafie, requested the tests necessary to pinpoint my problem. I am thankful he found my problem and has referred me to the specialist who will perform what is necessary to resolve the situation. Forever grateful.

I have been a type 1, insulin dependent, diabetic since 1967, resulting in extensive vascular issues. Shortly after Cardiac bypass surgery in 2006, I was referred to Dr. Kafie for PAD issues in my legs. Over the years, he has performed numerous surgeries to clear restrictions and place bypass grafts. He continues to monitor the circulation in my legs and neck with ultrasound studies twice a year. Both my husband and myself think very highly of Dr Kafie and highly recommend him.

I was airlifted to Dr Kafie from the ER in Foley,Al.. Up until this time I had no idea that I even had a problem. My abdominal pain was beyond belief. I the ER they told me that I had an abdominal aortic aneurysm that was 9cm and I shouldn't even be alive. It should have burst before now. When I got to Dr Kathie my family and I were terrified. He and his staff assured us that things will be okay. Dr Kafie told us he was a Christian and we felt relieved that we were in God's and Dr Kafies care.

Dr. Kafie is without a doubt the very best vascular surgeon we have ever had the privilege of taking care of my husband. Dr. Kafie is not only an excellent and knowledgeable surgeon, he above all else a compassionate, caring and honorable person. He is confident, wise and very good at what he does. When he's doing your surgery you have peace in knowing you have the very best that God is using to accomplish what's needed for you or your loved one. We are forever grateful for Dr. Kafie

I met Dr Kafie at Sacred Heart hospital. I came in with leg pain, and it ended up being a blood clot and he put a stent behind my knee. On the recheck before going back to work they found another blood clot before the stent. He worked tirelessly to save my leg. Today I was able to walk into his office unassisted. I can not express the warmth and compassion Dr Kafie possesses. I would recommend him to anyone.

I had the pleasure of experiencing just how caring Dr Kafie is when my mother was a patient of his. Dr. Kafie assured me that he was going to take very good care of her before and after her surgery. He told me something that really stood out from the rest. Dr. Kafie said I'm going to take care of your mom just like I would my own mother. I knew then that he's passionate about what he does. Thanks Dr. Kafie for being in my opinion the most caring and compassionate doctor around. Tracy Simon

Dr. Kafie is great, but his staff, nurses and receptionist could have easily killed me on a number of occasions due to their total neglect with following up/updating my medical files, allergies, risks, and scheduling important tests and doctor appointments. I feel like because I am old, and on medicaid that my health is not important and that I should just die and leave this office alone. Please fire your whole staff and start over, people's lives depend on it.
