What People Say About Dr. Urfan Dar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Staff is uncaring and incompetent. The facility did unneeded tests then billed me and the insurance for it. We agreed while I was at the appointment there was NO need for the tests and such tests would not be completed since I was not seeking continuing treatment with the Doctor's office (my visit was an informational/interview type of visit.) For nearly a year the billing office continues to send me bills claiming I owe for services NOT requested or required. The billing office is horrible.

Started with Dr Dar years ago but now he's too busy to see me. I love PA Watson & wish he could do my procedure. I've had 4 other drs having to fill in for Dar even tho my apts or procedure is scheduled with him. His staff is always making errors & it effects my insurance. Extremely frustrated!!!

He only does it for the money and doesn't care. He doesn't even spend 15 mins with you in the office just injections after injections and out of the office. They didn't find a cure another Dr found it for my husband and on top of that worse billing office ever that doesn't return phone calls.

Dr. Dar and PA Watson are the best. Very helpful, kind and they listen to you. I've never felt dismissed or unheard with them. The wait can sometimes be a little long but over all worth every minute. They take their time with everyone.

I have been coming to Dr. Dar and PA Watson for almost 10 years. They are professional - they care - listen - and try to do what is BEST for you. Had injections for 4 years then finally had to have back surgery. They now are helping me cope with chronic pain from 3 failed and 1 correct back surgery. I won't lie sometimes the wait can be tough, but it's because they treat you as family and don't Rush you in and out. been to another pain clinic - came back to the BEST!

I see his assistant Watson. The sweetest person who takes the time to listen. I've been with them about 31/2 yrs. The staff is great. Any problem or concern you have they will take care of you.
