Dr. Jafari is always extremely attentive, caring, knowledgeable and professional.

This was my first visit w/Dr. Jafari & I was worried it might not go well, but it went very well indeed. My worries were allayed, I am sure Dr. Jafari is an excellent neurologist.

Dr. Jafari is the best neurologist I've ever had! & Providence is an excellent facility.

I had a blood test more than a week ago and have not been assessed of the results. I would have liked more comprehensive testing and a more certain diagnosis.

Very respectful and tried to be helpful, but first appointment available was two month later.

I liked the way Dr. Jafari explained the results of her examination and why she was ordering additional tests. I also appreciated the visit summary printout I received.

always felt to be in good hands. Easy to understand explanations and instructions
