A doctor who cannot manage his schedule. Waited 45 minutes for the doctor. Front office staff chatting away. I would never use or recommend doctor who disrespects my time.

I found Dr Afzal to be very personable, professional, and polite, even shook my hand. Took the time to answer my questions so I could understand what was going on. Never felt rushed.

By far the least pleasant experience I've ever had with a doctor. His nurse is very rude and not good about getting back to you. Also I never get any appointments only get prescriptions written and sent to walgreens after I call and leave several messages regarding my symptoms and side effects...more
