I like photography and outdoor activities with my family.

Dr. Tarfur is a model of expert and respectful medical practice. I attended, probably in 2018, an outstanding presentation led by him and a colleague on lymphedema and related medical issues. His knowledge of relevant medical research and current practices was extremely impressive. In addition I particularly appreciate his listening skills and the respect he shows for his patients' larger lives. A career literature professor, I was much impressed with Dr. Tarfur's sensitivity and his highly informed engagement with the humanities and broader cultural issues.
Very good experience.
*Dr. Tafur is extremely arrogant. He might consider a little humility.
excellent caregiver very satisfied with overall team care
Dr. Tafur is a wonderful, caring physician. He is a model for what other doctors should be like.
Dr. Tafur's is a very conscientious and knowledgeable doctor. He listens to you, he doesn't just tell you what to do, he shares his thoughts and reasoning, and he looks beyond the obvious. I am extremely grateful that Dr. Tafur's was the on-call doctor the day I ended up in the hospital.
Dr Tafur is very professional, competent and effective
I have been meeting a large amount of doctors over the last 7 years. Dr. Tafur has been my favorite. When I first met him about 5 years ago, he spent a lot of time with me to cover any questions. Made me feel like he was an old time doctor that made me feel like he is the only doctor I needed to take care of me. Over the years he has become more and more busy, so I have a hard time to talk in detail with him. He is still by far my favorite doctor, but I just cannot cover all of my concerns or questions.
Dr Tafur is caring and concerned, seeks to understand and is a great problem solver.
