extremely articulate and knowledgeable
Very smart. Maybe smartest doctor I ever had.
Answered all our questions . feels very confident in the plan and we feel blessed to have this Dr
Dr. Tafur is extremely passionate about doctoring as well as the science of medicine. No doctor with whom I have ever met came to a first meeting so thoroughly prepared.Studious, concerned, extremely knowledgeable and kind, one also knows Dr. Alfonso is a physician of the utmost professionalism and integrity.
I think this is the best doctor I've ever seen. He was personable, relatable, concerned and excellent at his specialty. I am getting close to a surgery date and am considered "high risk". He took all the time I needed to get things straight and gave me a direct number should my husband or I have any concerns during my hospital stay or rehab. Patients are so lucky to have him as their specialist.
