I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Tafur. He is an extremely knowledgeable and compassionate physician. I feel very blessed to have him as my doctor for my vascular problems. And now with my recent Parkinson's diagnosis, he is able to evaluate me with that in mind as well.
That is why I like to come there, they are people who you can trust and count on them any time .
Dr Tafur spent time explaining all in details. Very grateful to have him!
Great team work with my doctor's, very professional in every way, Thank you God Bless you all
Excellent doctor. He did surgery on me previously, and this was a follow up appointment. He was. Rey pleasant and well informed of my history. He explained everything very clearly.
This was my first visit with Dr. Tafur. I had been to the vascular clinic previously and only interacted with a radiology technician. Dr. Tafur did address my questions and concerns thoroughly during my visit. I did feel slightly uncomfortable when after Dr. Tafur asked me to sit on the exam table, he started to remove my boots and raise my pant legs to look at my legs. (I had previously been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis.) Dr. Tafur did say that he was going to examine me before I got onto the exam table, but he could have asked me if I would remove my boots and roll up my pant legs myself or if I was comfortable with him doing it.
We were able to discuss my needs for an upcoming surgery! I feel so confident because I know my ortho will talk with Dr Tafur if a problem arises!
I am slow in understanding and came up new questions after I left. I will try to send those questions to Dr Tafur soon.
Dr Tabur explained things to me with simple non doctorese verbiage!
I am very grateful to Dr.tafur for all the help he has given me.
