Verified Patient Reviews
She was very patient, thorough and helpful
Dr. Dzhafarova's was very patient with me being 30min late due to excessive traffic. She took her time and got to know me to find out what I needed. It was very clear to me every action that was to be taken during my visit. I feel like I left knowing how to better my mental and general health . Although it was my first visit, I would highly recommend Dr. Dzhafarova!
I definitely had a long wait time, about 45 minutes, but it was worth it. Dr Dzhafarova was very thorough and sweet, and she answered all the questions I had. She gave me a few referrals, as well as exercises I could do at home to help with my nerve issues. I would absolutely recommend her. She ran late because she was running an unexpected test on the patient before me, otherwise I think the wait time would have been more reasonable.
Amazing doctor. She was very sweet and seemed to genuinely care for my problems. Highly recommanded
She made me feel super comfortable. Really glad I found her I'm looking forward to working with her to get in better health.
Dr Dzhafarova was great! I was so pleased with my appointment. The doctor was very knowledgeable and informative on many different issues and she addressed all my concerns and more. I think I found my new neurologist.
I love Normina! I've been seeing her for 4 years now. She's an Amazing doctor!
she is a great!
Great. It was an easy process. I didn't wait long and all went well.
She is thorough, efficient, and funny. The wait time is a bit long, but it makes sense since she's one doctor with lots of patients.
The doctor listened to me attentively asking for clarification whenever she felt necessary. She personally did a physical examination. Then she suggested I do several tests, and return next time for a follow up with more facts on hand. Overall, it felt the doctor was knowledgeable, had good common sense, and was genuinely putting her efforts into finding the best course of action for me. Her explanations were clear, calm, and provided with respect. She repeated them when I asked, and did not rush to finish the appointment.
Very warm and welcoming. Listened to everything I had to say and was very throrough with me. Made me feel comfortable.
Very thorough consultation and incredibly empathetic approach. Did a great job addressing my concerns without over promising anything. Left the decision to me on whether I want to wait out my issue or run tests to rule certain things out instead of pushing for a bunch of tests just to move me through the system. It's clear Dr. Dzhafarova knows what she's talking about and you really feel like you're in good hands with her!
Dr. Dzhafarova is very pleasant, professional, compassionate and thorough. Highly recommend
Dr. Dzhafarova was very attentive and asked many questions. She very clearly explained why to run the tests and what to expect, taking out all the guessing work. Highly recommended!
She was phenomenal! I left feeling very comfortable with her analysis and diagnosis.
Because I had to wait so long, I wasn't able to ask the questions I needed to about my care. I, unfortunately, have very specific buses I need to catch out of the city. I scheduled my appointment for 3:30 p.m., but I didn't get in to see her until about 4:15. My last appt was like this as well.
She is great..
She really heard me out on my problem. Also, love that the office stays open late, so I don't have to miss work to go.
2nd visit. A true professional, who genuinely cares. I feel very confident that Dr Dzhafarova, will always be one of my doctors. She is simply the best!
Dr. Dzhafarova is the consummate professional. Extremely thorough and caring. Unlike some doctors, she makes you feel that she genuinely cares about your well-being. I recommend her highly to anyone who is looking for a top-class neurologist. Louise L
I have never been to a doctor who was this genuinely concerned for my well-being. When I told her about my health in general she was incredibly willing to help me find solutions beyond the scope of neurology. It honestly felt as though I was being seen by a relative or close friend.
She is very professional
Recommended a treatment I am hoping will work. She was attentive and helpful.
Very thoughtful doctor, she carefully listened to all my symptoms to help me figure out what was going on. Very gentle bedside manner. I've only seen her one time but she seemed informed and helped explain things to me.
She was very thorough and took her time to make sure everything was covered and all questions were answered.
She was very nice. She listened to all my doubts and answered to all my questions.
Very pleasant doctor who takes a lot of time with you and is very knowledgeable. She ordered a B6 blood test and found it to be be very high, which I have discovered is a possible cause of neuropathy. No other doctor considered it and it may have been high for years. I highly recommend her.
Best medical professional I have ever met. Very caring, took her time asking about my symptoms, explaining my issue, and going over different treatment options. It's hard to find caring doctors like Dr. Dzhafarova these days!
Very comforting bedside manner and thorough.
Dr Dzhafarova is the most professional, thorough, genuinely caring and devoted doctor I have ever seen! She was the one who diagnosed me correct after I had been examined by several other doctors without much progress. She always addressed all my concerns and followed up to make sure I'm fine. I admire her personality and professionalism and I am very thankful for her time.
You can tell she knows her stuff but she likes to rush, and not that easy to talk to.
Great bedside manner. Really pays attention to my concerns.
Dr. Narmina is as good as they get. Very knowledgeable, caring, and thorough. Spends a good amount of time with you and seeks to get to the root of your problems.
The wait time was long, but this was only because she did not want to rush the previous patient, I respect that tremendously. If you have to go during lunch, just be wary of this. But I think she is worth it, she really set my mind at ease, was kind and professional. I would see her again!
Never found a doctor who could listen to me so attentively like she did. She really tried to understand what my problem was and took all the time she needed to tell me the exact diagnosis. I would highly recommend her without hesitation.
It's a bit of a wait, but Dr. Dzhafarova is very thorough.

Really nice doctor. There was a wait but I can understand since she is very thorough and she apologized. I actual found a doctor that listened to me, cared, gave great advice, and didn't rush me out the office.
She is worth the wait * she is hardworking and generally cares about her patience. She is so positive and loving.
There was a little bit if a wait but the doctor MADE sure to apologize ..I work in healthcare so I know there will be a wait but it was nice to know that she valued my time .. I've been dealing with debilitating headaces for months and she is the first doctor that mad me feel like if she doesn't have the answer she will FIND the answer

My appointment was excellent. Dr. Narmina Dzhafarova is a wonderful doctor. She listens and explains. She takes time to make sure you understand what it is she needs you to do. There are times you may have to wait, but thats only because she giving the person ahead of you the same excellent service she about to give you.

Shes a fantastic doctor. Very caring, very thorough. Spends as much time as you need to discuss all your concerns and questions. I wish all my doctors were half this talented.
Dr. Narmina was fantastic. She listened to me, examined me, did some specialized tests and was very up front with what insurance would cover if further treatment was needed for my migraines that came out of nowhere. I am much better after seeing her and appreciate the care she showed towards me.
Second visit and amazing experience again! Very punctual and helpful.
Very organized and efficient in gathering the relevant information to make a diagnosis. Very thorough.
Everything was good. She always remembers me, what are my issues, and what to do as for my treatment.

She truly cares about her patients. It is a pleasure to find such a genuine doctor out there. I highly recommend her!
Feel so lucky meeting this doctor. She was very attentive to my complains, answered all my questions and it felt like she really cared. Very personal approach which is quite hard to find in New York health care.
Dr. Narmina is one of the best neurologist I have ever had the pleasure meeting with, as I have been treated by many different neurologists in the past. She was very thorough in her examination and explained everything in detail.
I love her. She is very concerned with my needs. She wants me to get better. It's not all about the medical coverage with her.
She's amazing! She was so kind, and caring and knowledgeable. She took a long time talking to me and I could tell she genuinely CARED about me on the first visit. In a word she is AWESOME.
Best doctor I have ever had in my life.
Dr. Dzhafarova: Very thorough. The online documents were at the office when I arrived. I placed a couple of signatures on the documents and was done. I was early and when all was done at the front desk, the doctor saw me immediately. She suggested a few tests before our next follow up visit and was able to have her tech do another test right away. Yes, I would recommend a visit.
Very thorough in her assessment of my medical history. Thorough examination and explained in detail next steps and all aspects of medication she recommended.
The best doctor I've ever been to! Not dismissive and extremely thorough. Have time to talk to her about your concerns because she's not going to rush you. It's a blessing to find a doctor who actually listens to you and takes your concerns seriously.
She is a smart and very caring doctor. I highly recommend her.
This was the most thorough evaluation I have ever had with a doctor of any kind. She peiced my history together to try and get a true idea of the context of my concerns. I feel very comfortable moving forward with her.
The doctor's excellent reviews here made me choose her to discuss my cognitive issues related to memory loss. I was seen within minutes of arriving, almost dead-on my appointment time. She was very thorough and professional yet kind. I would highly recommend her as a neurologist.
She paid close attetion to my problems, took actions right away. She took detailed notes and aske questions. Great doctor!
Very great. She listened, understood, and tried to help the best way she knew how. Fast, straight to the point. I will definitely be seeing her again!
It was great!
Narmina is the best doctor I have ever been to. She outshines any doctor I have ever seen ten-fold. I always tell people about her excellence and drive to provide her patients with the highest quality service possible. She remembers you and your information very well and she is warm and welcoming as well. She has an obvious plethora of knowledge about her profession and offers in-depth advice that you can understand. Narmina also addresses your concerns with ease. She spends a lot of time with me anytime I go there and cares about me and my health. Dealing with issues regarding my brain is not easy and it is a horrible feeling when doctors push you in and out the door. That will NEVER happen to you here. Again, the best doctor I've ever been to or heard of in my life. My mother, a nurse, completely agrees.
Dr. Dzhafarova was very professional and courteous. I left the office feeling like I was in good hands.
Really fantastic. She took the time to explain things thoroughly.
Dr. Dzhafarova was amazing! I've been struggling with migraines for over 10 years and have visited SO many doctors who never really took the time to listen to me. After leaving Dr. Dzhafarova's office I felt (for the very first time) that I was on the road to getting my attacks under control. So happy to have found her!
She is amazing. Saw her twice in one day. She cares about her patients and had rare traditional bed side manners you don't find in most doctors today. I really recommend seeing her and wish all doctors were as dedicated and passionate as her.
She is an amaizng doctor! I wish all my doctors were like her. She is outstanding and really takes the one to learn about her patients and history. I would highly recommended her. She is one of the very very best doctos. I'm happy to have found her.
She was simply lovely. Dr. Dzhafarova showed that she cared about addressing my concerns and was extremely thorough with me. I was extremely happy with my visit and highly recommend Dr. Dzhafarova to whom ever is looking for a reputable Neurologist. By far one of the most caring Doctors I have ever had an encounter with.

Highly knowledgeable and fast decision maker.
It was great. I felt very comfortable talking to Dr. Narmina. She helped me out a lot! Im still waiting for my lab results to come in but I had a really good experience with her.
Dr. Dzhafarova was very through with her exam. Great expereince!
Very thorough and helpful. She spent a lot of time asking a lot of questions and really trying to understand root cause. Medicine as it was meant to be.
Great experience. A very experienced professional who devotes a great deal of time during your visit to provide a thorough exam. not the usual 5 minutes doctor visit.
She is amazing!!! Great bedside manner. She makes you feel like she really cares about you getting better. It's hard to find good doctors but Dr. Narmina is a rare gem.
I think Dr.Dzhafarova is extremely smart and very attentive to what the patient is saying. The only thing that turned me off was that when I called the office (which I believe was her HOME phone number) or it was redirected to her home number I was never called back in reference to my blood results. I was disregarded immediately off the phone and that alone made me not want to return for a follow up visit.
awesome love her
shes a great doctor, communicates very openly and honestly and very courteous. Definitely recommend!
The doctor kept answering personal calls and had terrible bedside manner. If there is something wrong with me, she is not the type of person I would want to hear it from. The office also does not do blood tests or nerve tests, so need to make an additional appointment elsewhere to get testing done.
Kind, patient, and thoughtful.
Dr. Dzhafarova was very thorough and made me feel very comfortable. I was seen almost right away and the staff was professional and courteous.
She answered her cellphone to book appointments while we were in a consultation. Not very professional.
I am very impressed with Dr. Dzhafarova who gives 100% to her patients and authentically cares about their well being. She was very thorough and extremely detail oriented in asking ALL of the questions related to my concerns as well as in her examination. What a breath of fresh air it was to see this savvy neurologist after some of the nightmare docs out there who expect patients to wait for hours and spend less than 5 minutes in the actual visit....If you are fed up and seeking a quality and professional Neurologist as was I--this is your go-to!
She is an amazing doctor. Caring. Detailed. And we very informative. She is a rare gem.
It was a long wait, but the Doctor is worth it! Very attentive, very professional! Would definitely recommend.
Dr. Dzhafarova is absolutely wonderful—smart, thorough, and very kind. She takes the time to answer all of your questions and never makes you feel rushed or—worse—like an inconvenience. Why can't more doctors be like her?
Dr. Dzhafarova is an excellent healthcare provider.
Never met more lovely doctor in the whole New York. No waiting line, no rush, easy and comfortable. Very sweet doctor, will definitely recommend
Very attentive and really did a complete job. Would recommend her hightly.
Besides waited for 45minutes, the visit was good. She took her time to examine her patient and did not rushed. Good listener and very professional. Highly recommend!
Dr. Dzhafarova was extremely helpful. She took the time to ask questions and go over a few in office tests. She put me at ease and made me feel very comfortable. I would certainly recommed Dr. Dzhafarova to family and friends!
She was patient, thorough and comforting. If I need to see a neurologist again I will see her.
This doctor is amazing. When I came in, I had to fill out paperwork due to being a new patient and she was ready to see me before I finished and she really gets to the gist of your health problem(s) and comes up with a solution right away; of course after conducting a few tests. I would highly reccommend!
She was very warm and very friendly. Also really really detailed. It was a great appointment. I would refer her to my family and friends.
She's the best.
She is fabulous every time!
I was very impressed. Professional but very warm, reassuring while still providing the facts. Highly recommended!
Dr. Dzhafarova is far and away the best doctor I've ever been to. She is attentive and thorough while also kind and understanding. I can't recommend her highly enough, both on a professional and human level.
She is incredibly thorough and very sweet. She makes sure that her patients understand everything and that their questions are answered.
she has a warm caring disposition.
I had a great initial visit with Dr. Dzhafarova. She sat down with me for nearly two hours to listen and diagnosis my migraine issues, which I absolutely appreciated. However, several times I have called to discuss with her some issues I was having with a current migraine and she never returned any calls. Her secretary also hung up on me one time. The one time she did call me, I explained to her that my medicine was not working and that I might need a stronger dosage. Since I had to go on the road for work and was not able to come in for a proper appointment, she got very upset and began to insinuate that I was a drug addict. I understand she might have been in this position before with other patients and that she is trying to protect herself, but I was quite insulted given that that assumption was absolutely not true. Not going to her again and I will not recommend her to anyone. Yes, she did a great first time visit, but thereafter, forget it!
The most thoughtful and caring doctor I've ever been to. I've never had a doctor listen to me the way she did, and I now feel confident I will be able to get treatment for my symptoms. I recommend her as highly as possible.
Dr. Dzhafarova is truly a gem! It was my first visit and she made me feel very comfortable. She was very warm, caring, and thorough. She asked lots of questions and paid attention to everything I told her. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great neurologist.

Doctor Dzhafarova gave me all the attention I needed, she's very professional and I was very satisfied with the visit. Highly recommended
I have been suffering with a disorder in my left foot for over a year. I have been to a multitude of doctors and none of them took the time to find out what was wrong with me. Dr. Dzhafarova gave me a complete blood workup and she diagnosis my condition in a matter of a week. I am extremely happy to say that I will finally be going for treatment for my condition.
She was so great! She really listened and wanted to find a reason for my pain. I would definitely recommend her.
This was my first visit. We covered everything in detail. Dr. D. spent quite a bit of time with me. I left feeling very satisfied and optimistic. CKP.
It was a fine visit overall. I'm interested in finding out my problem and taking other test.
She was very thorough and took her time. But was very late for my appointment. I was there at 1pm and she didn't get there until 1:45pm. Thank god I didn't get fired. I have enough stress.
she was very nice and caring. she understood me and took her time to understand what im going though . she asked question no other doctor ask me. i am looking forward to seeing her again

She was very thorough and asked a lot of questions. She helped me to understand what the probable causes of my condition are and mapped out a plan to get me started on recovery.
She was very professional and despite me being 20 minutes late, she saw me right away and took her time to listen to my case. She was very knowledgeable and was able to explain to me what the issue was.
My experience with Dr. Dzhafarova was one of the best doctor experiences I've ever had. She is very thorough and personable, and you get the feeling she really cares about her patients. I highly recommend her!
I haven't given all excellent reviews only because I always like to reserve some judgment But having said that, I will say she was very very very good.
Dr. D. is one of the those rare doctors that make you feel better right away. Very attentive, good listner, performed very thorough examination, explained what is going on with my body and how to deal with it. Calm, patient, cheerful and optimistic, and, no doubt, KNOWLEDGABLE. Answered all my quesitons and addressed my concerns. Did not rush thru an appointment, and did not make me wait for a long time (10 minutes or so). I entered her office as a sick person, but left in a much better shape, because of her positive attitude and sense of humor.
She was clearly very knowledgeable and well versed in her field. She was friendly and approachable as well. I would recommend her services to anyone in need of neurological advice/treatment.
