I have had such horrible experiences with colon & rectal physicians that I was literally traumatized by those experiencesso I held off seeking medical attention for 6 months. I am so grateful for Dr. Izfar!!! She listened to my history; understood my issue; & asked questions. She was gentle during the physical exam and checked in with me to ensure I was okay during the exam.
