Very happy with my visit to Dr. Ghafar’s office this morning. I was a little nervous going in to the appointment, as this was the first OBGYN in NYC I was visiting since moving to the city. There was absolutely nowait time, filling out the paperwork was super simple, and both the staff and Dr. Ghafar were lovely. He did not make me feel rushed through the appointment at all and let me ask all the questions I had. I was in and out in just about a half hour. Will recommend to others!

What can I say?. Let's start walking into a clean environment, bright and cheery. Great staff! very welcoming, sweet, kind, polite and very helpful. Always with a smile and not just with me but they seem to go above and beyondto make you feel relaxed and comfortable. As for Dr. Ghafar, I just love his calm demeanor which helps me to be calm and not tense. Asked tons of questions which were very satisfying knowing he is doing everything he can. Thank you

The visit was short but thorough. Dr. Ghafar was attentive to my concerns and genuinely seemed interested in finding out the reason(s) for my symptoms in order to conclude a proper diagnosis. He and his staff were very pleasant, courteous andprofessional. There were no special forms to fill out other than what was already provided on Zocdoc. I was pleasantly surprised that I was taken in immediately and that there was no wait time considering that it was a Saturday appointment. Having worked as a medical assistant for over a decade, that most certainly never occurred at any place I've ever worked nor at any doctor's office I've visited as a patient. The only minor flaw I would say at this point is that I was not informed during my confirmation appointment call that only cash is accepted for copays. Other than that I had a great first time experience.
