Dr Zafar made the whole vasectomy process stress and worry free. Him and his staff were very knowledgeable and assuring of a quick easy process. Day 2 of recovery Dr Zafar reached out personally and made sure all was well and reiterated if there were any other questions or concerns to reach out without hesitation. Highly recommend!

Dr. Zafar is the best urologist I've been to and I've been to several. I always have supreme confidence he will address whatever my issue is. Also, it's rare to find a doctor that has your best interest at heart and dissuades you from getting a procedure done because the results would leave you no better off, even though he should have the incentive to go forward with the procedure to increase the bill. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Zafar for any of your urological needs.

Very much enjoyed working with Dr. Zafar. He was very helpful in explaining the procedure and steps after, and is incredibly personable. Would highly recommend.Update following procedure: Dr. Zafar and his team provided excellent care. I’m currently 4 days post-op and feel nearly back to normal. During the procedure he explained what was happening and helped by chatting about a variety of topics to keep my mind off what was happening below the curtain. The care instructions provided have given me a great guide to recovery. There are no shortcuts- just follow what he says to do and you’ll be back on your feet in a few days!

I’ve been beyond pleased with the service and attention I’ve received through Dr. Zafar and his office.
