Dr Gaffar refused to provide me with my diagnosis over the phone while I was out of town for work for two weeks. She was evasive and rude to my wife. I would never refer this doctor to anyone I care about. I felt she was abusing her power as a doctor by withholding my medical information from me claiming that it is office policy to only give information in person forcing another office visit. Her lack of empathy for my condition is shocking to me and my family.

Dr Gaffar is my 2nd Pulmonary Dr as my first one I wasn’t happy with. I am so glad I changed! She is caring, takes her time, no nonsense Dr. Her office staff are very friendly, efficient and also very caring as us asthmatics need at times. I would refer Dr Gaffar (as I already have) to family and friends!

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
