Excellent meeting with this doctor.
Dr. Tafur is an amazing Specialist ! He is very caring, precise, compassionate, thorough, discusses short term and long term plans and makes very great suggestions and he is just a gem! I am comfortable discussing all issues with him. He reads all information from other specialists and care about my overall care and wellbeing both physical and emotional.... Grateful to have him on my team for improving my current issues... You are awesome!
Dr Tafur is very good at his profession.. Easy to talk with and if you have a question, he answers in layman's terms..
Dr. tafur is an excellent doctor. I'm glad he was the doctor who saw me when I was in the e.r.

I was lobbying for a reduction in dosage (unsuccessfully)
Dr. Tafur is an excellent, thorough, caring doctor. I am fortunate to be his patient.
Dr. Tafur is great. He always listens to my concerns, & doesn't rush through an appointment. I'm able to meet directly with him, & not just with a P.A. Sometimes doctors overuse the P.A., & never actually see the patient themselves. Despite the experience of a P.A., I want to speak to the actual doctor.
A couple follow up issues were not clear, but it took days to get through to someone who would call back with answers to clear them up.
Dr. Tafur was exceptional. He spent considerable time with me explaining his POV and the medical issues. He drew out the medical issues on paper, which helped with the explanation and understanding. I wish all my doctors spent this much time with me. I strongly recommend him and appreciate the time he spent with me.
