A true passion for medicine and a genuine interest in every patent’s health are the first impressions one gets from meeting Dr. El Zufari. This passion and caring demeanor are rooted in his family history, where as a boy growing up in Syria, he watched his two physician uncles care for entire families, across multiple generations. Seeing the faith that was placed in his uncles by mothers and children alike, young Hazem decided that caring for families was to be his calling. Because, as he puts it, “by treating each member of the family, they can work together to promote good health and well-being for the entire family.”
A Board Certified Family Physician, Dr. El Zufari graduated from Damascus University College of Medicine, and also has training through the University of Arkansas Area Health Education program in El Dorado, Arkansas. His reach and expertise is prolific; Dr. El Zufari is a member of the Ethics Committee at Memorial Herman the Woodlands Hospital, currently Dr. El Zufari is serving as chairman of Family Medicine Deptartment at the Memorial Herman Hospital The Woodlands.
Dr. El Zufari is also affiliated with Health South Rehab Hospital.
In starting the Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health, Dr. El Zufari is fulfilling his ambition to provide affordable, compassionate family care.” Known for his empathetic demeanor and ability to really listen to his patients, Dr. El Zufari feels the best reward is not peer accolades or credentials (of which he has plenty), but the positive feedback and trust he receives from his patients. Because in the end; when a mother, father, and child all take an interest in each other’s health; everybody wins.
Verified Patient Reviews
exelent as always
He listened to everything I said and understood why I was in his office.
I did not appreciate him saying because of Medicare paying for my upcoming surgery there would not be funds for future recipients like himself. When I told him I had paid into SS for 50 years of my working life, he said "yes, but how much did you pay in?. Then he ended the conversation with" I'm not going to get into it with you". I will change Doctors.
He's a highly skilled doctor. He is his primary care physician, and is knowledgeable of the resources and specialists in the area. He also has a great bedside manner. He prompted his 90 year old patient to discuss politics to learn his mental acuity - very smart.
My first impression of Dr. El Zufari was very good. He seems to be very attentive & concerned about my medical situation. I look for to a long term doctor/ patient relationship.
Dr. El Zufari is quite professional in his treatment. He is forthcoming with regards to any concerns he might have about your general well being, according to examination results.

As usual Dr, Ej Zufari was very accurate in our last visit and we consider him a very well prepared and conscious physician. We are very lucky to have him as our primary doctor.
Very helpful and knowledgeable. Recent wait time was tough especially because I was fasting for blood work.
He was to the point and explained in a manner that was understandable.
I had only just sat down when I was called in to be seen. I am normally a nervous wreck at doctors' offices but as soon as he came in and started speaking I felt much more at ease.
The doctor is great. After the visit, I scheduled with a staff with a strong accent for my next appointment. However, on the day of the appointment, I was told that they couldn't find my appointment in the system. What an oversight! I had to reschedule.
I thought Dr. El Zufari was kind, patient, curtious and very professional. His staff were all friendly, helpful and professional.
Dr. Zufari has a calming bed side manner and listened to everything I had to say. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease. In a world where so many doctors rush to see you and move on to the next patient, it is refreshing to have a doctor like this. The staff in his office reflect the same mannerism. I am more than happy with my experience with this doctor and his office!!!
I've been seeing Dr. El Zufari for a while now and have always had wonderful care. He has an interesting sense of humor which I appreciate. He is also very business-like and caring. I wouldn't like to make a habit of it, but was late to my appointment by 6-7 minutes and never heard a complaint. Given that, my short wait was a pleasant surprise.
Very concerned about his patients needs

I have full confidence in his ethics and medical practice. The staff are friendly and prompt. They send reminders and answer all queries by phone. I am grateful that I found him
What can I say he is a goo dr.
Had a little wait today but that's not typical. They usually get you in right away and Dr. EZ shows up right away. He's a good doctor. He sits down, looks you in the eye, and pays attention to what you have to say. This is important to me. I'd say most doctors I've ever been to act as if they're on their way to a fire, and Dr. EZ's approach is very refreshing.
I was really nervous with finding a new doctor and was given kind treatment which calmed my nerves!
Very thorough and very pleasant.
As always he was right on time. He knew my specific problem and asked if there was anything that might be bothering me. As usual the staff was real nice. There has never been a problem ever! I recommend he and his associates to everyone. Family Medicine Clinic Rocks.

Dr. El Zurich is very thorough. He is very courteous and he explains things very well. I feel he treats my 83 year old mother-in-law with the same care as if it were his own mother. Very pleased with him.
Great as always, but had to wait 1 hour which is quite long for a 9am appointment
Highly recommended . AAA++
The past several times that we have had appointment, the wait time is ridiculous. An appointment time should be kept especially since you are now attempting to collect fees for missed appointments.

I went in for a new patient exam and was pleased with Dr. Zufari's treatment. He answered all my questions and was patient while listening. The only thing that put me off was their method for gathering samples. Didn't seem very sterile or proficient.

Detail oriented and explain very well. In addition, he provides options to ensure you agree with decision.
Best doctor I've ever had. I couldn't recommend him more highly.
He takes his time with the patient and never rushes you through the appointment.
Dr. Zufari is a little too pushy about flu shots. I have declined numerous times, yet he continues to harass me about taking the flu shot. I would prefer a doctor who respects my decisions with no fuss. It would seem that the medication combination Dr. Zufari has put me on is a little risky. I've experienced no side effects. My problem is that one of the medications he has prescribed has a secondary use that he did not tell me about and did not give me the opportunity to give or decline giving my consent. Also, he did not inform me that there was a risk to combining these medications, but he has been monitoring me closely for adverse side effects. The previous doctor I saw at his practice, Dr. Nguyen, administered the flu shot to me against my will, after I very clearly declined the shot. In response, I switched doctors at that practice. While Dr. Zufari has given good care, so to speak, and has monitored my progress carefully, I do not believe he respects enough to make my own choices about my care. I really don't appreciate being kept in the dark about my treatment. I don't appreciate being questioned about the decisions I make for myself. Finally, I don't appreciate being given treatments or medications without my knowledge or consent.
Very professional. Very knowledgeable. Great beside manner. Office staff very polite.
Amazing as always with my kiddos, staff went above and beyond to make sure they were treated with utmost care. Hats off to Runya for a fast and accurate dx of flu test being positive, and so thankful to Katie for calling in extra tamiflu to make sure my son didn't get sick as well. Love em', love em', love em!
Very thorough and professional.
As usual, I was very happy with the professional and personalized manner of Dr. El Zufari during my visit today. He always takes a personal interest in my medical issues and treatment regimens. I am happy to compliment him and his staff and will recommend them whenever the opportunity arises.
He is not thorough and did not find out what the problem was or give a proper suggestion.
I think he was above average when it came to knowledge.
Very professional, and takes his time with you. Listens and answers all your questions. I really liked this Doctor. Im new to the area and was very content.
Dr. Zufari was kind and informative about my medical concerns. He seemed knowledgable and up to date on preventative screenings and annual testing. I appreciated the time he took to talk and explain things!
Excellent. He's caring professional. Takes his time to find your needs and help you. He's on top of his profession.
I was very pleased with my visit. All questions were answered to my satisfaction. Now I have another problem. My catheter has stopped draining. Await instructions. Please advise. Have apmt with Dr. AM l2/4.
I have full trust in Dr. El Zufari. I have been a patient of his for about ten years. Once I had a irregular heart beat and he was sent me to the hospital. I was in the emergency room about three hours later and who comes in to check on me, it was Dr. El Zufari. He had taken his lunch time to check on me. Today, I was referred to doctor for a back issue. After he read the MRI, he referred me to a physical therapist to hopefully get relief and not to schedule the surgery that I was told needed to be done. Great guy, spent about twenty minutes with me today.
Always a pleasure to have a doctor like Dr. El Zufari who makes me feel comfortable and takes a great interest in my "well being"..I do so appreciate a doctor who takes his time to hear me and not rush me....a rare occurrence with doctor these days!!!

Dr. El Zufari is very knowledgeable and kind with his patients. I was impressed at the amount of time he took to listen to what I had to say about my own health. This was my first appointment, and I'm looking forward to my follow-up appointments.
Dr. Zufari is very thorough and caring. He apologized several times for my wait time, which very seldom ever happens. This was a Saturday appointment and I was just so thankful that he works on Saturdays because it is hard for me to get there during the week.
Dr. El Zufari is a good doctor he takes time to explain himself to make you understand what your needs are and what exactly his doing, I highly recommend him!
Very glad I found Dr. EZ. Sharp, thorough, and he LISTENS. He doesn't rush in and out, but sits and talks with you. Refreshing.
The doctor is always thorough, giving directions that are easy to follow and understand. He listens to my concerns and solves health problems with common sense. I appreciate this doctor and his education. I'm grateful he cares for my health needs.
