Dr.Jafar is an amazing woman. If you are struggling with addiction I swear she has saved my life!! I walked in her office desperate for help to change my life and I walked in the right door. With addiction having a huge stigma in society it is difficult to find a place to go where you will not be judged n treated with compassion n respect and be able to change your life and find a new way to live without the use of drugs!!! She takes her time to listen to your needs and being honest open minded and willing her care plan has given me my life back . Thankyou Dr.Jafar and your staff for your excellent professional care n understanding. I am so grateful and blessed to be your patient and have found a new healthy way to live!!!

Awful. There’s a new receptionist every week, the Dr. makes up her office hours based on how she’s feeling that week, and you mean absolutely nothing to her besides $$$$. Don’t expect over the top service or any service for that matter. Don’t waste your time because she don’t care at all for her patients!

This doctor is the last person who would "push medications on people" as the reviewer below has stated. I know from personal experience and from talking with other patients that she frequently makes an effort to try and encourage patients to reduce their medications that have potential side effects. Dr. Jafar is kind and patient and takes the time to listen to concerns and work together with her patient allowing them to have a say in their treatment which is rare these days. Highly Recommended

The comment below is very uncalled for. Drs are humans too and therefor have families who need them. She had a family emergency and had to go to India. And as for pushing medications? If anything she has helped me get off of medication. She has always been kind, takes her time, and listens. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

If you want a doctor that pushes medications onto people, doesn't truly listen to what the patient is saying, and that gets up and leaving to India for over a month without notice leaving all of her patients who are dependent on her care without concern then yeah Dr.Jafar is the one for you.

I became a patient less than a year ago and was relieved to have found the perfect doctor from the very first visit. Dr. Jafar provides old-fashioned personal care with new-fashioned expertise, rare in today's medical environment. She is very intelligent, a very good doctor, and a very nice person. Her office manager and assistant complement Dr. Jafar perfectly, combining efficiency with grace and humanity. One could not ask for a better experience.

I recommend everyone that I know to Dr. Jafar, and that obviously includes my family. I have known her for the better part of a decade. The doctor graduated at the top of her medical class here, in the United States. You may wait 10 mins in the waiting room, but she will spend an hour with you, if it's what you require. She is very observant and hardly ever lets anything slip by her unnoticed. In the event of an emergency, there is a MLSS Ambulance Station 1min away, located on the same road.
