Dr. Vafai is one of the best and brightest cardiologists on the planet. He is caring, listens to your questions, provides excellent feedback and is there when you need him. I cannot believe in this day and age there are still doctors who are like the ones I remember growing up in the 50's.

We absolutely highly recommend Dr. Vafai who in our opinion is not only a fine cardiologist but a doctor while professional, is warm and caring to his patients. His office is efficient, pretty much on time for visits. In particular two women in his office, Jennifer S. and sherry S. add to the competence of this office. In addition, other physicians associated with this practice make this a fine cardiology group.

This man is of a Professional Demeanor, bright , cordial very very informative and even friendly and really cares for his patients. He might have a nice size facility but his staff and like him are caring and cordial. But, most of all he know's his stuff and follows up on new medial information on a regular basis. But the final conclusion I found not only for me but for my 60 year old son, that he really cares and doesn't rush through your appointment he listen's to everything we say and ask
