Great doc! Had a kidney stone in the covid crisis. I was scared. He put my mind at ease by surgically removing my stone while I was admitted. Have been pain free ever since. Would highly recommend!

This is one of the kindest and most thorough specialists I have seen (I’ve seen many in my day unfortunately). Would highly recommend Dr. Zafar. My next priority is to make an appointment for my father to see him.

Simply amazing. I am cancer free! I was blessed to find this urologist (my sister, who is also his patient, referred me to see him for a second opinion). He did my robotic surgery. Would recommend to anybody very highly.

Very warm, caring, and thorough. I am a nurse and interact with many physicians on a daily basis. With the tables turned and me now in patient seat, I was very comforted by the experience I have had with Dr. Z. If you need a urologist, this is the one.

Had a vasectomy by Dr Zafar yesterday. Virtually no pain during procedure, mild momentary at most. Very little pain after. Only taking anti inflammatory and NO narcotic. I was completely awake and had no sedative at all for procedure. Hands down a phenomenal urologist

Amazing bedside manner. Very easy to talk to. Wish I was referred to him originally ( I saw him as a second opinion because my original urologist was not able to help me to my satisfaction). Highly recommended.

Dr. Zafar saved my life. I had prostate cancer and he did the surgery. He used robotic surgery which was the best choice. I tell everyone about him and his recommendations for surgery. I trust he unconditionally with my life.
