    I appreciate Dr. Mubina Gaffar's professionalism as a pulmonologist. She is very caring, is a good listener, and she helped me to breath better, which is a big health concern to me. I highly recommend her!

    While experiencing a bout of pneumonia, I found Dr. Gaffar knowledgeable, quick to find the best tools for diagnosis and very understanding of my needs. I highly recommend Dr. Gaffar.

    I feel very lucky to have seen Dr. Gaffar. While she was extremely knowledgeable, she also took an inordinate amount of time with me and made sure all of my questions were answered. And, on a separate note, she also referred me to a very competent pediatric pulmonologist for my daughter when she developed asthma, and for that I am grateful.

    She is very caring and did everything possible to get an oxygen machine for me while I was recovering from a Pulmonary Embolism
