Dr. Zafar has been following my condition for several years now and has performed a very successful TURP surgery two years ago. I am doing quite well under his care. All questions are fully answered and adequate time is given me when I am at the clinic in Centerville, so that I feel all issues are covered.

I’ve been beyond pleased with the service and attention I’ve received through Dr. Zafar and his office. I was extremely nervous, and frankly a little embarrassed to talk about the issues I was having with incontinence. That was quickly put to rest by everyone I interacted with. I am so happy I finally went through with this process!

I recently moved to the Des Moines area and needed to find a urologist. Dr. Zafar was recommended by my primary care physician. Dr Zafar thoroughly reviewed records from my old urologist prior to my appointment and made good recommendations regarding additional care.

Best urologist in the city always cares about his patients. Is always there when you need him. Best caring staff always makes time when needed. I have recommended him to several people that have had bad experiences and they love him. He has been there for me on three different kidney stone episodes didn’t matter time day or night he made time some way to be there. Will never change doctors. Never had an appt problem or billing problem. His staff is well trained and keeps everything on time thank you . Total rating is 5 with 5 being the top rating.
