I like photography and outdoor activities with my family.

Dr Tafur and his staff and colleagues have been outstanding with my treatment. I just hope I do not have to see him again under these circumstances.
Dr. Tafur is an excellent physician. What is excellent? Beyond competence and intelligence, Dr. Tafur demonstrated sincere care for my well being. He explained his conclusions succinctly, sharing his thought process and soliciting my questions along the way. I am grateful for his care and to NorthShore for creating an environment that inspires its team members to remain connected to a heartfelt commitment to care.
Outstanding doctor. Very concerned and very easy to talk to. Gave me precise follow up instructions which I am doing religiously.
Dr. Tafur and nursing staff are smart, serious, gentle, kind, thorough
I just need things written down, especially if I'm not familiar with the names as I am not for many medications. NorthShoreConnect and the aftervisit summaries are very helpful in that regard.
He explained the why of my concern.
Dr Tafur was very empathetic and explained the issues very well and answered all my questions. He went the extra mile to give me a follow up call at home.
love that Dr Tafur wants to educate his patients . monthly meetings with speakers are planned. I have enjoyed attending and learning more about the disease. thank you
Dr. Tafuer was great
Dr Tafur spent a good deal of time with me, listened attentively to my concerns about my condition, was extremely knowledgeable . He explained my condition, treatment and had me undergo some thorough testing! Knowing that I am under his care and supervision now has made me feel very fortunate!
