Dr. Khalafi did an excellent job of off-pump CABG surgery. He also discovered a blood disorder which would have killed me and referred me to an oncologist. I am doing fine now 3 years later.

My son is an ER doctor and his best friend is a cardiologist who has sent at least 100 people to Khalafi for surgery. He says Khalafi is one of the best in Texas and probably the best in Ft. Worth. The nurses in the cardiac care unit at the hospital all agreed

BEWARE of Dr. Khalafi! If anything goes wrong, he will hide and leave you to sit in the hospital. He will also move you to whichever hospital he has the most power. My sister has spent 46 of the last 60 days in and out of the hospital since Khalafi performed surgery on her. Each time, he's nowhere to be found, and the other doctors won't help because they don't want to upset Dr. Khalafi. If you value your life, choose another doctor.

We waited for one hour beyond our appointment time and then after 30 more minutes in the exam room left. No one apologized or mentioned why he was late. It seemed it was typical. We have chosen a different surgeon to complete his needed procedure.

Dr. Khalafi has a very calming manner when you're facing heart surgery. He exudes a confidence that just makes you feel he has it under control. He saved my life. He explained all that was going to happen during and after my surgery, not only to me, but to my wife as well and answered all of our questions.
