    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.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
