Professional Statement

“I chose a career in Gastroenterology because it provides me with a specialty where I can interact with and help my patients in various ways… screening for colon cancer, removal of colon polyps, control of acid reflux, work-up of chronic abdominal pain, treatment of hepatitis (B or C), diagnosis & management of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis), endoscopic procedures & therapies, and clinical management of multiple other gastroenterological disease processes. Having done all my post-graduate training in Houston's Texas Medical Center, I have grown to love this city, its people and its culture. I hope that I continue to have the opportunity to serve my patients here to the best of my ability and expertise.” Dr. Zafar performs: - Screening for colon cancer & colon polyps (including Colonoscopy) - Heartburn / acid reflux & peptic ulcer disease (including Upper Endoscopy) - Capsule Endoscopy of small intestines - Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease / Ulcerative Colitis) - Treatment of viral hepatitis (B / C) - Evaluation and treatment of hemorrhoids (including band ligation) - Evaluation of anemia and gastrointestinal bleeding - Diverticulosis and diverticulitis - Evaluation of chronic abdominal pain and nausea/vomiting - Evaluation of abnormal liver function tests

Doctor was knowledgeable and heard my concerns patiently, he was obviously worried about my healthcare and recommended a primary care doctor for me. It was very polite of him to make a physical exam appointment for me. On the other side, nurses were rude with an attitude. Blood was drawn from my arm by "drilling" the needle in my vein , I was screamed no with pain.. need to change nurses!!

Dr. Zafar, I believe, is a "people person". He treats you like another person and not just a patient. He does little extras for you that other doctors don't,i.e., he checks with the pharmacy about the drug he is about to prescribe and found out it is out of network for us, therefore our cost would be higher. He then prescribes a less costly drug to do the same thing.
