I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Dr. Zafar and his staff for everything they did for me. I have been sick since the end of June and was declining rapidly. I was told to see a GI doctor, but no one would see me because I was a “new patient”. Dr. Zafar's staff heard my distress and I had an appointment with in the hour. He was reassuring, engaged and made me feel like I was his only patient. I am feeling better but cautiously optimistic. Thank you for making me well. #GREATDOC

Dr. Zafar really listened to all of my concerns and even asked questions himself to get to the bottom of the cause. I liked that he came up with a treatment plan and didn't just pill push. His bed side manner was excellent.

Seriously one of the best doctors I’ve ever encountered. Extremely thorough, intelligent, incredibly knowledgeable, trustworthy, and the BEST bedside manner I’ve ever witnessed. He has been so kind and patient with me during all my visits. That goes a long way! I truly appreciate him and his care he has given me. His staff ladies are super as well. They are incredibly kind, gentle, and also have such a friendly attitude! Couldn’t say enough about them!

Treatment by a doctor's staff can cause a doctor to keep or lose patients. This is why doctors should care very much about the people they hire to interact with and serve their patients. I work with the public and I know the difference between excellent and poor service and care. I received poor and indifferent service. Though Dr. Zafar was competent and friendly in his service, I will never return to nor can I recommend Dr. Zafar because of his unfriendly and indifferent office staff.

Very thorough and professional. I had a great visit and he was quick to get to the bottom of my issues and ordered tests right away. I think if anyone will get to the bottom of my issues he will. Also loved the building, much nicer than having to go to med center.

Dr. Zafar is experienced and thorough. The staff there is friendly and efficient. Good overall experience. Watch out for the pathology lab they use. Their selection of pathology lab cost me a ton of money because they weren't in network and I had no idea until I got a gigantic bill for lab testing. Make sure you ask where they're sending any specimens and make sure it's in your insurance plan. Technically it's not his fault but they really should prevent that sort of thing from happening.
