If I could give 0 or negetive -1 star 9 would. During my visit Dr Gaffar seemed to listen to my medical history. He did leave the room for a while for what I believe was a personal call. When I called to discuss my test results, he refuses to come to the phone or call back even after leaving messages with his nurses. If you want good communication with your dr he is not the one
