Was a patient of Dr. Afshar many years ago, and unfortunately moved out of the area, so had to switch Dr.s. Still by far the best Doc I've ever had. Very caring, gentle, respectful of the patient's feelings and needs. Put me at ease before my surgery. Great man.

Absolutely hands down one of the best doctors that I have EVER had. He was my doctor during my first pregnancy and is now for my second. Good sense of humor, he actually makes you feel cared about, doesn't judge, gives honest respectful opinions. Bed-side manner is absolutely outstanding. Not pushy, doesn't rush you, listens to your concerns and questions. I absolutely ADORE him.
