Dr. Mouhamed El Zufari, MD

Family Physician, Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

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.

I have always had a good experience at this office, sometimes there is a little bit of a wait, but the staff is always courteous and the doctors/nurses take their time and answer questions (which likely accounts for the occasional wait). I'd recommend them.

I have alway liked Dr. El Zufari and he takes his time with his patients instead of rushing things. I think his office staff is nice but lacks being personable and getting to know the patients.

He is an excellent physician. He always has time to see me even when I make a last minute appointment. I never feel rushed and due to my increasing number of ailments, he treats me for several conditions concurrently. I amalways impressed by how he seems to recall the details of previous visits before reviewing my chart. I am happy to call him my primary care physician. In addition, being able to have my blood work done in his office with minimal wait time is extremely convenient and the phlebotomist is skilled and friendly. The office staff is also extremely accommodating and personable. I’m very happy with this practice overall.

I have been searching for a PCP in Houston for 2 years and Dr. Zufari has been the only one I have felt comfortable with. His office staff was extremely personable and prompt. Dr. Zufari wanted to know everything I hadgoing on and even helped me with a referral for an injury I felt like I was just going to have to deal with for the rest of my life. Dr. Zufari is the best!!!
