Ratings for Dr. S Jaffer
Dr. Jaffer is a wonderful doctor, my daughter and I have been seeing her for years. She takes the time to listen and explain and will refer to a specialist when needed. The office she works in however is atrocious. Front desk staff are very rude, do not answer the phones and do not follow-up with patients as required. Many times I'd wished Dr. Jaffer would have stayed at her previous practise on Centrepointe.
She's ALWAYS at least 45 min late and the staff are extremely rude (often talking even when there is a line of patients waiting to check in). I wouldn't recommend Dr. Jaffer or the Westend Family Care Clinic unless you're retired or don't work days.
I have been going to Dr Jaffer for years now and when I became pregnant she offered to become the physician for my son. She's very patient with both of us and so thorough. I am a person who worries a lot and tend to bring my son in for the littlest things, and shes always understanding.
Jaffer is arrogant, uptight, and lacks compassion, a caring attitude and is impatient. She lacks the fundamental attributes required to be a helpful and serving medical professional. She is happy and most keen to prescribe medicines and to create patient-dependency on herself and her prescription so that they continue returning ...helping to fuel her salary. She is the most uncaring undedicated doctor I have come across. Save yourself the misery and find another GP.
AWFUL! Awful, awful experience with Dr. Jaffer. I am lucky that the damage she has done is not debilitating - but it is irreversible. Dr. Jaffer decided to play dermatologist with me while I was waiting to see a real dermatologist. She prescribed me a topical gel containing the same active ingredients I had suffered a terrible reaction to before. She knew I had suffered a horrid reaction from a similar treatment because I had specifically told her so. I, 17 at the time, followed her instructions and used the prescribed gel for over a month (without looking into the active ingredients vs ingredients in the previous medication) and experienced HORRIBLE breakouts all over my face, absolutely worse than I had ever had in my life! I was in such bad shape when I finally got to see my dermatologist. She just shook her head when I told her the story. Dr. Jaffer is extremely irresponsible and should stick to what she knows and leave the rest to specialists!!
I am a medical professional and Dr. Jaffer has been my physician for over 10 years. She is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. She takes her time with every patient and admits herself this sometimes causes her to run late. However, when it is your turn to see her she sits down, listens carefully and compassionately and knows what to do. I feel in very good hands every time I see her. She has , on one very sad occasion, stayed late to discuss a concern with me. I think she is a wonderful doctor.
Our family with 3 boys, now men, have been seeing Dr. Jaffer for many years. Dr.Jaffer is very caring, knowlegable and takes the time to listen to your problems . We have the utmost respect for Dr.Jaffer & being an RN for 37 yrs , I am thankful for Dr.Jaffer looking after my family .
Great doctor but has very little time for her patients. Her new office is always over-booked with over an hour to wait before even being let into a room. If you have to work around a schedule, she is definitely not the one to see as her appointments are always booked completely solid. Over a week for a simple prescription refill.
