This was my first visit to Dr. Afzal. It was a follow-up for a pulmonary embolism I had in March.I was impressed with his knowledge, friendliness, and ability to communicate clearly and answer my questions. I did not feel rushed through the appointment. He treated me with dignity and compassion.

This doctor saved my life in 2009 by telling my son, his neighbor, that my symptoms suggested that I had sleep apnea and that I should have a sleep test!
