Dr. Afzal did my dnc when I miscarried my first pregnancy. My experience was awful. I had a lot of bleeding and her and her staff kept telling me it was normal and ignoring my concerns, barely talked to me at my follow up. After 8 weeks of constant bleeding I finally convinced them that something was wrong, an ultrasound showed she missed stuff from the first dnc and I needed another one, which left some scar tissue. I changed practices after this and now have a baby girl. Do not reccomend!

Doctor was short and I felt rushed. Office is disorganized, rude staff, and didn't know answers to basic questions. I really felt like the place was just a factory and they didn't know us as patients but more like a number
