I like photography and outdoor activities with my family.

Dr. Tafur is a knowledgeable professional with a quiet and friendly demeanor. He did a thorough examination of my legs, went over the results of my blood tests, asked questions about my observations of my condition, listened to what I had to say, and replied to those observations and questions. At the end of the exam visit, he summed up what went on during the visit, and recommended next course of actions. Upon leaving the exam room, I picked up a printout of info concerning my medical status, the visit, and future medical actions.
Dr. Tafur was very thorough and caring.
I litDr Tafur very much.
He was kind enough to see me during his lunch hour, due to the urgency of my visit. He was very through.
The need for wearing masks made understanding Dr. Tafur a problem because I am a lip reader.
*Dr. Tafur is very thorough and provided an excellent summary visit for me to follow regarding discontinuing supplements, injections, stopping NSAID's and resuming those in an easy format.
dr tafur very patient with answering questions
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.
