He leaves patient's waiting for prolonged periods. He has a terrible bedside manner and doesn't explain results clearly. He is arrogant and thinks his time is more valuable than everyone else's.

I can't say enough good things about this doctor. When I was diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer, he was highly recommended by top surgeons & other gastroenterologists. Due to his expertise .with ERCP & he was able to remove the CA during that endoscopic procedure & I was spared a horrendous general surgery that would have had a prolonged & an extensive recovery period after. I would recommend him to anyone! (Issues were emegencies so handled in hospital not office)

My mother went in a year ago for a mass on her pancreas for a biopsy. After her procedure she and her ride were informed a biopsy was taken. At follow up she was told they did not have biopsy results and a biopsy was not taken. She was told the mass on her pancreas was common and not to worry unless symptoms persisted.. The office charged her 250 dollars for biopsy results. The dr and his staff have covered their error by calling it a "dictation error"! Lawsuit waiting to happen.

I met Dr. Jafri about a month after I became severely jaundiced, itchy and very ill. Upon seeing me, he stated that he would put a bile duct stent in the next day. Upon doing so, he found my pancreatic cancer and broke the news to me and my husband afterward as gently as possible. We weren't surprised, but relieved to finally have answers and a path forward. I'm happy to report my treatment was successful and I'm disease-free almost two years later. Many thanks to Dr. Jafri for his skill!

This doctor treats me for crohns. In January was asked that I get a specific MRI by his nurse practitioner.My insurance wouldn't cover it as an outpatient because there is not a need to use this type of MRI for what they wanted to see.they could easily use on another image. So I go into a bad flare up. Hospitalized 3 times in 5 weeks. Still refuses to see me without MRI. By this time the flare is so bad they are looking at surgery. They still want the MRI instead of all these other images

I've been having recurring problems with Pancreastitis. Dr Jafri did a ERCP he explained the procedure to me and made me very confident in him . He has great bedside manners and is a very good doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.

Was rather rude. I was there for a procedure due to chronic pancreatitis. He assumed it was due to heavy drinking. This was not the case.
