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.

Fantastic doctor but the office staff is about as unorganized and and worthless as they come.

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.

He sees 4 generations of our family! We all are very pleased and have always felt like it was his honor to be our doctor! We have been walk in as well as appointment patients. We will not leave his care. As a matter of fact, let me publically thank him for all he has done for our family! Lewis'

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.
