I love Dr. Jaafar and I too have experienced difficulty with his staff at times. I once brought this to his attention, told him I love him but because of his front office staff I would considering changing doctors. He said he would take care of it, I think it has gotten a little better. But who ever runs that area needs to stay on top of this. This makes a big difference in patient care. Recently, I was prescribed some meds which were called in to Walgreens. I picked them up, later got an order from Humana for the same meds??? Appears two different people ordered the meds, one from Walgreens and one from Humana. I had to return the meds from Humana. But this is what I'm talking about. Come on, get with it.......something needs to be done to lay the law down with this staff.

Dr Jaafar himself is an excellent dr as are most of his other doctors and PA's. However in the 11 years that I have been going there, there have been a few that weren't so good, and in fact were poor. Thankfully they do not last long. The big problem with the Bandera office is, and always has been the front office staff. They are unfriendly and obstructive at times to patients seeking much needed care for serious problems and I am not speaking of colds and flu. Love Dr. Jaafar but he really needs to do something about the front office staff. They have driven myself and other residents to seek care from other medical professionals over the years.

Thank you so much for taking such great care of my ailing father. Our community is blessed to have such a wonderful doctor and staff. The advise to send my father to a rehab hospital was above and beyond and I am forever grateful.

Office staff are more interested in themselves than the people who they are paid to assist. Another Dr. was seeing my wife and ordered a stat blood draw. They had closed down the office to get to their hot cars. Then SHE, and she knows who She is, said we could drive to another location. I find this inhospitable and makes all the Dr.s and nurses look bad. My name is John A. and I am not hiding.

Dr.Jaafar is GREAT but his front office staff especially Ms. LISA is a royal pain in the but (I am putting this politely) the staff doesn't do their job and OMG if you complain about it they put all the blame on you. Have had multiple issues with Ms.Lisa over the last 10 years ..personally I think she needs to be fired !!!!!

I have seen Dr Jafaar or his PAs for 20 years. Back when he had the itty bitty office. He is an absolute blessing to our community. When my husband was very ill he was there to not only help medically but to guide me through the process of a loved one passing away. Now my grandchildren are patients as well. I moved &switched Drs for a year because of the distance.I was so disappointed it was truly an experience that was entirely negative.Needless to say I now drive back to Bandera & All is well

Nurses and front desk care more about lunch hour than a chest pain patient. Poor patent evaluation skills. OSHA would have a field day. Doctors had not left for lunch yet, but nurse and front desk wouldn’t let us been seen even though it was still 10min before lunch. Poorly educated nurse. Had to tell them that it was chest pain while they were turning us away. The desk had a nurse come out to check respirations and pulse, and tell us to come back for appt later.

I see Dr. Jaafar and his staff at the Stone Oak office. I am a very satisfied patient of this office. It is well run, very professional, and run like I feel your physician's office should be. Very caring, patient, and will do anything to help the patient. Dr. Jaafar is outstanding as your primary physician. He is thorough, explains issues in a very understandable manner, and has an excellent bedside manner. I always leave with a feeling that I am so grateful to have these folks on my team.

We absolutely LOVE this amazing doctor and his staff. Dr. Jaafar has extraordinary skills and patient care! We go to Dr. Jaafar's Bandera and Stone Oak clinics and adore the staff. They are so friendly and accommodating every time we are there! I agree that it is sad to see people hide behind the internet and post rude comments. Give this fine doctor and his staff a chance to reach out to you and solve your problem. Please stop the small town mentality of gossip and negativity here.

Dr Jafaar is great but I think he has spread himself too thin between clinics as the quality of care and respect for patients care has declined. I have been a patient with his practice in Castroville for more than 15 years but am looking for a new doctor due to the incompetence of his office staff.

Dr Jafar and his Stone Oak clinic is horrible. They over charge you, they give you a, I don't care attitude, they say they will call you back and they do not. I have been overcharged for too long. They sent a urine test off and charged me $4,500.00 Yes that is right $4,500.00 from a hospital that tested it in Texas. Then my wife had the same test and they charged her $1,900.00 for the report both billed to my insurance. The office manager is horrible and has no care attitude about anything.

Dr. Jaafar is a wonderful doctor but the office personnel are very incompetent. They talk bad about you in front of your face and they are never willing to help you. I tied getting my prescription renewed for over a week and all they would tell me is that they couldn't promise anything. Dr. Jaafar either needs to shut down the office in Castroville or get new office personnel. I am finding a new doctor and will never go back to him again.
