I had a Colon Resection and I couldn't have chosen a better surgeon to be my doctor. She was caring and explained everything as well and answered all my questions. She was very down to earth and easy to talk with. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. -Guzman

Dr.Izfar is treating my mother’s IV Rectal cancer.We have seen many doctors throughout this journey & doctor Izfar has been by far the very best.When visiting with her you have the feeling that she actually cares about you.She takes the time to hear you out fully so she can clearly explain your problem & various treatment options.She was able to do a major laparoscopic small & large bowel resection when others told us a full incision/open surgery would likely be the only way.So pleased with her!

I am very amazed with Dr Izfar and her staff, From the time I first set my appointment til now, everyone has been so caring and handle appts and surgeries professionally. She is a sweetheart. This is a very personal and embarrassing topic, but they make you feel comfortable. Its quite scary at first but then you realize that Dr Seema Izfar is the one that will change your life for the best, I recommend her to everyone. I have a surgery coming up and I know Im in great hands. Thank you!

Dr. Izfar's treatment has changed my life. I was unaware that there was a name for my condition: bowel incontinence. She was very thorough with her treatment and the end result has eliminated my accidents.

It took me a long time to make an appointment because I was anxious and embarrassed. But as soon as Dr. Isfar walked into the room, everything changed. I immediately liked her. She was smiling and friendly and explained what she was going to do. Before I knew it, the procedure was over. I highly recommend her to anyone needing her expertise. Dr. Isfar is the best. And I don't want to leave out her staff--they too are great.

Dr isfar is the such a wonderful person. She is caring and listens to all your concerns. She's the best!
in Schertz, TX |
I have no respect for a doctor who decides to take a long week and reschedules her appointment with out regard to her patients issues or how long they have had the appointment scheduled.
Kerrville, TX |
Dr. Izfar is knowledgeable and caring. Both she, and her nurse, Wendy, stay on top of a patient's healthcare needs and follow up with insurance, and even calls after a procedure to ensure their patient is comfortable and healing is going as planned! I wouldn't go anywhere else , and have recommended her to others. She listens, makes sure she understands what you are saying (or asking) and explains in terms that are easy to understand. She has never seemed rushed or in a hurry!
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr. Izbar at the South Texas Colorectal Center is fantastic as well as her staff. I was astounded by the professionalism and friendliness of the front desk and MA. Everyone was personable and wanted to help in any way they could. My surgery went perfectly. The incisions healed well and I had little to no pain after my gall bladder surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Izbar and her staff! - Cassie
in San Antonio, TX |
Dr Izfar is non-responsive and simply uncaring. I would not recommend her. I've never been treated with such disrespect.
in San Antonio, TX |
