Professionally Excellent

My treatment at Dr. Zafar's office was very friendly and efficient. In fact, I was in ahead of my scheduled appointment. The reception area as well as the treatment room was very neat and warm as well as spacious. My patient/Dr. relationship has always been professionally excellent with Dr. Zafar as well as Nurse Marilyn.

Glad I Chose to Come to You for Help

Thank you, it is so good to know I will be okay thanks to good people who get things done right the first time. I won’t forget ever your caring concern for my well-being! I feel you treated me as a patient as if I was your own family in the care that I got at your office. Thank you Dr. Zafar for getting me in right away at your office and for setting up an MRI for me so quickly. I’m glad I chose to come to you for help with my problem. It’s nice to know that there are good doctors like you out there! Thanks you again for finding me a referral to a gynecologist to fix the problem for me. Please thank all of your staff for me.

I Will Never Forget Your Kindness

I would like to thank you for your kindness and also your friendship to my dad, Kenneth. It was nice that you took the time to know the personal side of my dad. He so appreciated that and that you always asked him about me and the grandkids and took the time to visit a minute no matter how busy you were. I will never forget your kindness to him and me.

by Dave H. on Lakeview Urology
Thank You for Your Professionalism

This is Dave. I’m the guy you spent part of Christmas night with. I want to thank you for your help. You need to be complimented on the way you handle people. You made me really believe you cared about me. Nor a quality all doctors show. I am activated now in the Army National Guard. What we need here is plenty of water and I am so glad I came to you when I did (a little bit earlier would have been better). But you kind of saved me, then and now the fact that I’ll be able to stay hydrated to the point I need.Well this letter runs on but thank you for your professionalism.

Dr Zafar is Very Gentle

The procedure, which was to dialate the urethra, was a little uncomfortable and I will have it done again if necessary. Dr Zafar is very gentle. He, also listened and explained any questions or concerns that I had.

by R.S. on Lakeview Urology

Wonderful Bedside Manor

Saw Dr. Zafar this morning. He was very nice, professional, and has a wonderful bedside manor. Thanks again!

by Doris R. on Lakeview Urology

Dr.Zafar and his staff are the best! Each of them have treated me like a human being and not like just another insurance claim too collect. They go above and beyond to make sure my every need is met.

by Matt J. on Lakeview Urology
A Great Experience

After some online research about the procedure and reading his online reviews I made an appointment with Dr. Zafar and had my vasectomy a couple of days ago and I feel great. Dr. Zafar explained the procedure in detail and answered all my questions. During the procedure I had no pain and we past the time with pleasant conversation, before I knew it the procedure was over! His staff clearly explained the post procedure restrictions and was very professional during the whole process. After a 2hr drive home it felt fine with no pain. Three days later I still feel great and would highly recommend Dr. Zafar.

Dr. Zafar

I'm very pleased with the care I was given by Dr.Zafar. He's very professional, yet personable at the same time. His office was very helpful & informative if I needed answers to any questions.

I feel very good today with no pain

I went to Dr. Zafar to have a vasectomy done yesterday. The entire process of setting up the appointment and going in for the procedure was very easy and handled extremely professionally by everyone on his staff. They took time to answer all questions and were very good at explaining everything to myself and my wife. The procedure itself went very well with no pain and Dr. Zafar made sure I was comfortable the entire time. He is exceptionally easy to talk to and made the time during the procedure pass quickly with great conversation. I feel very good today with no pain at all less than 24 hours of getting the procedure done. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would absolutely recommend him to anyone for this type of procedure.

I recommend Dr. Zafar and his staff without hesitation

Dr. Zafar and his staff have earned my trust and more importantly my referral to family and friends. I recently had a vasectomy and Dr Zafar was more than willing to discuss the procedure, recovery and be honest about potential complications. Everything went exactly like he described and my recovery has been near perfect. He has followed up and shown true interest in my well being. I recommend Dr. Zafar and his staff without hesitation.

by D.J. on Lakeview Urology

Dr. and staff are very professional and courteous. I would recommend Dr. Zafar to anyone.

by K.L. on Lakeview Urology
I recommend him highly and without reservation

K. U. B. Issues are medically complex and Dr. Zafar is great at communicating about these matters in an understandable way. He is also great at monitoring medical indicators such as psa and creatine levels and knowing the correct response for proper treatment. He correctly diagnosed my prostate cancer at and early (stage 1) level and guided me with care through my treatment protocol with a successful outcome. I recommend him highly and without reservation.

by K.L. on Lakeview Urology
Felt surprisingly comforting and relaxed

Dr. Zafar performed my vasectomy this past Friday. The entire process felt surprisingly comforting and relaxed. The staff was courteous and extremely prompt - and scheduling was MUCH easier than I had anticipated. Dr. Zafar explained the important parts of the procedure and paid close attention to my comfort throughout. The procedure itself was quick and relatively painless. I was nervous going into the office, but I honestly couldn't have asked for a more pleasant (considering the circumstances) time. I don't usually take the time to write reviews, especially positive ones, but that whole office deserves it!

by F.B. on Lakeview Urology
Takes the time to explain procedures

Dr. Zafar is an outstanding doctor. He is highly recommended within the Des Moines Metropolitan area as one of the top urologists around. He has a very calming demeanor, which makes it easy to communicate with. He is very knowledgable and takes the time to explain procedures, symptoms and causes to you as a patient. His staff is very friendly as well. They make you feel at ease as you go thru the office visit process.

by P.V. on Lakeview Urology
Doctor Zafar was very professional and went the extra mile

i was very satisfied with the overall procedure time and results. Doctor Zafar was very professional and went the extra mile in my opinion to make sure i was free of pain and discomfort. After having some discomfort a week later i called in and talked personally with Dr. Zafar who wasted no time putting my discomfort to the top of the list, getting me in within 30 minutes of my phone call for a follow-up. There were no complications with the procedure and or treatment and i would recommend Dr. Zafar's office to anyone needing or wanting this procedure.

by S.L. on Lakeview Urology

Excellent job with my vasectomy procedure

Dr. Zafar did an excellent job with my vasectomy procedure. He took the time to explain all the details to my wife and I so that we were able to make a highly educated decision. During the procedure, he and his nurse were great at making me feel comfortable and relaxed. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking into having a vasectomy.

by Richard W. on Lakeview Urology
Everyone involved was helpful

Every portion of this procedure went very well. This was my first experience with lithotripsy and the installation of a stent. Believe I have had a very positive experience..little discomfort and/or pain and everything proceeded as it was originally described. Everyone involved was helpful, communicative and direct. Facility in Manniong, Iowa was first class as was it's personnel.

by A.F. on Lakeview Urology
The doctor was very knowledgeble and detailed

I came in to have a vasectomy procedure. I was pleased to know that they had saturday hours and so I did not have to take any time off. The doctor was very knowledgeble and detailed. The procedure took only 10 min and I had no pain. The next day he called to check on me!!

Very helpful

Everyone was great! Very helpful and the procedure was painless. I was very nervous and everyone was very understanding. Thank you!!

Very kind, very professional

Had my vasectomy today.. I was really nervous but it was all really painless and he kept my mind off it with conversation. It seemed really quick and 6 hours later I'm feeling pretty good. He got in, got it done, and got out with what seems so far to have been an absolute minimum of tissue trauma. Very kind, very professional. Highly reccomended.

by A.M. on Lakeview Urology

Experience better than expected

Lakeview Urology No scalpel vasectemy Had no concerns going in before consult. Read up on practice that was being performed. Consult was very informative. Vasectemy went very well & Dr. Zafar was communicative & made sure everything was going alright during procedure. After vasectamy, Dr. Zafar personally called to check to make sure all going ok. Experience better than expected. Would recomend.

He showed me great compassion

Dr. Zafar helped improve my quality of life. I went to him with a very sensitive issue (he understood my condition very well) and he immediately set to giving me options for making a plan to fix the problem. He was clear about what was causing the issue and comforting about how we were going to work together to solve it. Dr. Zafar was ALWAYS patient and very much reassuring about all stages of the treatment. He worked with my insurance company so that everyone involved understood the costs and why before any decisions were made. His after care services were excellent as he showed me great compassion for my undertaking as he made recommendations for what to do next. It is without hesitation that I recommend Dr. Zafar for anyone needing medical services, he is a professional that is very personal.

by C.D. on Lakeview Urology
I'd recommend Dr Zafar to anyone considering a vasectomy

I came to Dr Zafar to get a vasectomy and I'll confess I was a little scared. Not only was I making a permanent decision about my future, I was afraid it would hurt. Dr Zafar explained his no-needle, no-scalpel procedure and after learning about it I was ready. I scheduled my appointment and was back to work literally that same day. I'd recommend Dr Zafar to anyone considering a vasectomy. Not only did he do a good job, he made me feel comfortable.

by k.V. on Lakeview Urology
He's a professional

Fast and rather painless procedure. Dr Fawad gives you all the confidence that he's a professional.

by G.B. on Lakeview Urology
Am doing very well

I came to see Dr Zafar with prostate problems. He spent time with me and listened to my issues patiently. I like his demeanor and bed side manner. After some testing he found the cause of my issues and started me on medications. With in a few days I saw an improvement and am doing very well. I will recommend Dr Zafar to other patients.

I was really happy with my decision

My wife and I have talked about me have a vasectomy for a number of years now so I finally decided to pull the trigger and get it done.

His bedside manner was also very helpful making me feel comfortable through the entire experience. I would highly recommend him!!!

I highly recommend this doctor

Dr Zafar was very knowledgeable and efficient. I was very nervous about my Vasectomy, as you can imagine. He and his staff put me at ease very quickly. During the recovery period, I "thought" that I was having problems, he and his staff were quick to get me in assess, and put me at ease stating that it was all in the process of healing. I highly recommend this doctor for all of your urology needs.

by M.D. on Lakeview Urology
Answer questions and suggest solutions

Have treated with him for several years for suspected kidney stones, bladder control, ED and low testosterone. Always takes as much time as needed to answer questions and suggest solutions. Had one unsatisfactory side effect from a surgery years ago, but I was told about the possibility prior to surgery and took the chance. The office staff and nurses are always efficient and friendly.

Virtually Painless

I visited Dr Zafar after an Internet search. My vasectomy with no needle and no scalpel was virtually painless. I was there on a Monday and back at work on Tuesday with no pain, only swelling. I compete in triathlons, so recovery was important to me. I was doing very light jogging within a week, swimming in about two, and was on a bike at 5 weeks. I took it easy to avoid complications. I set my 10 mile PR 8 weeks after surgery!

Absolutely No Post-Operative Pain

The most significant point, for me, that I want everyone to know is that there was no, absolutely no post-operative pain. Also for both Hydrocele and Vasectomy operations, there was no fever, no infection, no reaction and no discomfort. It was as if there was no procedure done.

Your Compassion and Professionalism is Second to None

Over the past week I have had an opportunity to visit several hospitals and clinics out of necessity in the area. The service, compassion and professionalism in each facility was outstanding!

One of the procedures was performed at the Corydon Hospital by Dr. Zafar from Ottumwa. The experience, due to my wife's circumstances, could have been very scary and traumatic. Thankfully everything went very well, as they handled our situation with ease. The nurses and anesthesiologist did their jobs with the compassion and professionalism that totally blew me away. The doctor made certain to come in and speak to us before and after the procedure, even
giving us his personal cell phone number in case we had any questions. Amazing!

I have heard a great deal of negativity about the medical facilities and practices in southern Iowa, with the indication that if you want something done correctly, you must go to a larger city for the best treatment. Well my friends I feel very confident that if these people were unable to meet our needs, they would have passed us along to the people that could help.

I wish to take my hat off to the Doctor and all the people that helped us this past week, your help and understanding, your compassion and professionalism is second to none!

Thank you to all.
