What My Patients Say

Dr. Afsar listens patiently to our concerns, diligently checks the medical records/history, and adjusts medications accordingly. - RB

Dr. Afsar is wonderful. She has helped me deal with high blood pressure and guided me through quitting smoking and staying healthy. She is very responsive, and I'm very glad to have her as my doctor. - ML

Dr. Afsar is always very helpful. She suggested chair yoga as a form of exercise, which helps me ... On this visit she gave us good counsel on kidney surgery -- very thorough. - WD

Quality of care is excellent. Ease of getting care is excellent. Communication with my doctor is easy and informative. - FD

Dr. Afsar is by far the best physician I have ever had. She took care of my mother for years before me and that is how she became my doctor .... She has a thorough knowledge of my extensive medical history and has been the reason my health has improved. She counseled me about my weight and encouraged me on a journey of significant weight loss. Her kind, caring and encouraging words are a source of inspiration to keep doing the hard work of diet and exercise. I trust her implicitly and can tell her anything knowing she will take care of me. - KS
