Dr. Afshari came highly recommended by my doctor's office. He removed my gallbladder about 3 weeks ago by single site robotic surgery through my belly button. He guided me through the entire process professionally and made me feel safe and comfortable. I have no scar and he was actually able to fix a small hernia in my belly button I developed during a previous pregnancy. I am so happy with my results and I will be seeing Dr. Afshari for any future surgeries.
Dr. Afshari is very good at what he does and in addition is compassionate and and dedicated.
The reassuring of both Dr Afshari and his staff. Also though the doc has been experience in the field for years, he spoke to me and my husband in a very simple and clear manner.I was in this same situation twelve years ago and Dr. Afshari remembered me and how frightened I was. He on my opinion put himself in God's hands, which made it very easy to put myself in his hands. Thank you doc for your wonderful care.
Dr. Afshari is one of the best. He has a professional staff and he takes time to reassure his patients of his care. He is very smart and knows what he is doing. In addition, he seems like a great guy. Thank you for taking care of us, Doc.
Having never had a bad illness in my life I was very nervous about my visit to Dr Afshari office. I found his office staff to be very nice and kind to me. I felt very comfortable with the office and found Dr. Afshari to be totally awesome. I highly recommend him he is the BEST!
Excellent surgeon and person as a whole. As soon as I met Dr. Afshari I was certain that he was the one I wanted to operate on me. I had two prior consultations with other physicians and walked away thinking no way would they operate on me. Dr. Afshari was cool, confident, diagnosed the problem without hesitation, and told me, "I will fix you". I was absolutely sure that I was in good hands. Compassionate and caring office staff was an added bonus. I would recommend this doctor to anyone. For a first surgery at age 61, it was very comforting to have this very competent doctor.
Thank you Dr. Afshari for your understanding, concern, explanation and handling of my problem. Thanks to your skill I am well on the way to a speedy recovery.
Very professional and personable. His office staff is the best! I've used him 3 times in the last ten years.
I discovered I had to have Thyroid Surgery approximately, a few weeks ago. I consulted with my PCP (Dr Lionel Gatien), whom I respect and trust his judgment of medical surgeon professional's and he recommended Dr Sohrab Afshari. I contacted Dr Afshari office, with fear and anxiety of having to go under the knife, with someone I had not, developed a relationship with, with me being a first-time patient. I spoke with the office advocate, whom was very, customer oriented and excellent dynamics of professionalism. She requested my visit to be a one on one personal encounter with Dr Afshari for me to receive self experience of comfort and assurance, from the Surgeon Dr. Afshari, which would be providing my surgery. I was applaud to have received, such caring and concerns of the staff and Surgeon to have made special accommodation for me to develop a relationship with my Surgeon; before, I decided to have him perform my surgery. Dr. Afshari made me feel so relax and comfortable, I didn't delay my decision any further. Now, what really stole my trust with Dr. Afshari was when he shared with me and I quote "I'm not bragging; but, I do my job dam good and you will feel much better after the surgery. " I was lying on the table and had been prepped to go under. Hearing those words from Dr. Afshari ceased any anxiety I had. (smile). After, a few days I went to his office for a follow-up. I was whispering to talk. Dr. Afshari told me and I quote "don't come in here with this whispering, open your mouth and talk." I love this Surgeon and God placed him in my path during this time to encourage, strengthening and bring great laughter to me and my soul. I feel so much better. I don't feel like I'm being choked around my neck, difficulty swallowing, no puffy or swollen eyes and so much more. I thank God for Angels like Dr. Afshari. He Is All That, Plus Some!
I can never say enough wonderful things about Dr. Afshari. In October, 2011, I was discovered to have breast cancer in the right breast. He wasted no time from the point of lab discovery to getting me on the surgical table. I believe it was about 3-4 days. He completed a lumpectomy on me, a difficult one because although I had ductal carcinoma in situ, there were multiple sites. He completely removed all the cancer and sent me to on site radiation (only 5 days, instead of 6 weeks). In short, Dr. Afshari's background, experience, and acumen as a surgeon and doctor are incomparable. Not only does he have the scientific and medical tools in his talented brain, but he is without a doubt the most compassionate physician I have ever met. His empathy is without bounds. He has the unique ability to communicate to you the exact, clear truth without scaring you or making you feel dumb or talked down to. His bedside manner is par excellence, and he continues to care over and over after he has been your surgeon, always looking after you in case your health is threatened, once again. The fondest memory I have of Dr. Afshari is right before he had me wheeled into surgery. He came in alone and bent over and told me quietly that with my permission he would be praying for me during my surgery, that God would help me and that God would guide his hands. I have trusted him implacably ever since. I don't think I am ovexaggerating my comments when I say that he is the best doctor and surgeon I have ever had the privilege of meeting. Thank you Dr. Afshari for saving my life!
He is an amazing doctor but an amazing human being as well.
EXCELLENT DOCTOR, EXCELLENT PLUS SURGICAL EXPERIENCE, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO FAMILY OR FRIENDS
he is very informative and treats with complete respect to patient and family
Dr. Afshari performed my surgery just a week ago. I feel great and confident going forward. I think Dr. Afshari is a Super Star in the medical field. There is no other surgeon I would recommend to my family and friends. He's wonderful and I'm very thankful for all he has done for me.
I highly recommend anyone needing to have a mastectomy, go meet with Dr . Afshari. He immediately calmed my nerves a lot, telling me he would treat me like one of his family. I felt that way all the time. He explained everything he would do in great detail. One incredible surgeon!
Dr. Afshari is a great doctor. My surgery went very well because of his compassion and caring for his patients. He answered all my questions, explained what he was going to be doing in detail. his office staff was totally amazing. It's been a year since my surgery and I am doing great. One thing I really love about Dr. Afshari is when you tell him you are hurting he don't say its in your head or try to pass over the fact that you said something. Dr. Afshari I love you and your staff and I want to THANK YOU all for making my surgery the best.
I have had encounters with numerous surgeons for family members over the years, however, this was my first personal experience with a surgeon. Dr. Afshari performed a bilateral mastectomy on me for breast cancer, and an additional surgery due to a stubborn healing issue. Dr. Afshari is, by far, head and shoulders above not just any surgeon, but ANY doctor I have ever encountered. He truly is the most skilled surgeon whose work I have seen, and he is absolutely the most kind, empathetic and caring doctor I have ever met. He gives the utmost care and thought to the whole person, not just the 'surgery patient'. This journey has been very difficult, trying, and challenging, but Dr. Afshari's skill and compassion have been the underpinnings of my successfully completing and winning this challenge. Dr. Afshari surrounds himself with an incredible office team who also take on the role of friend, caregiver, and shoulder to lean on. The professionals in this office join you in your challenges, treat you with the utmost respect, and you are never just a patient on the phone or in the office, you are cared for like family. I would highly recommend the Afshari team to everyone - and I have! The only negative thing I have, is now that 'my team' has successfully gotten me 'there', I will no longer be seeing them. They were such a vital part of my recovery. I thank them from the bottom of my heart - and I will miss them.
From the very first appointment, Dr. Afshari explained everything that he was going to do in terms that I could understand. His manner was very compassionate and gentle. My follow up visits to his office were all of the above, plus like meeting a friend instead of my doctor. Again he explained everything in my terms and even explained in detail everything that I might experience in the following weeks. In my book, I would go to him again if surgery is necessary and I would recommend him to any friend/ relative as a top surgeon. Thanks, Dr. Afshari, for being there for me in my time of need and making my illness less stressful.
I like Dr Afshari he is a good doctor and i trust him with my results. his staff are pleasant and helpful. I have been going to this location for about 4 years now and would not change i am happy with the service that is provided to me. I feel safe.
Dr. Afshari was my surgeon for a lumpectomy breast cancer removal at Memorial Hospital. He has since remained my doctor for follow-ups and check-ups. I have had several surgeries in my life, yet none of them have even approached the level of caring and time spent talking with me about my condition. He let me know what to expect in detail, and calmed all my fears. He not only let me feel I was in good hands, but I was in the hands of expertise, with many years of experience. He does not talk down to you, dumbing down the conversation, but explains your situation intelligently and thoroughly. My fondest memory of him was as they wheeled me to surgery, he bent over, put his hand in my hand and told me he would be praying for me as he did my surgery. I was truly touched. Dr. Afshari is a rare jewel. No wonder he is Chief of Surgery at Memorial Hospital.
Recently went thru lumpectomy with Dr. Ashari. He was extremely professional, spoke in layman terms so I understood what was going to happen and what to expect. He displays excellent bedside manners, possesses humor which was great and made me feel very comfortable. He is a true professional and one that I would strongly recommend to anyone having to undergo surgical procedures Dr. Ashari excels in. Highly qualified and highly recommended. A great surgeon. Thanks for all you do.
He does not care about how I am feeling. He only cares that his work is done, and just to get over the pain behind having surgery. He does not like you to question is work and I feel very let down.
Excellent Physician! Very thorough in communicating his diagnosis and any treatment. Caring bedside manner with an equally attentive and prompt staff. I have had two separate surgeries performed by him with outstanding results.
Extremely knowledgeable, thorough, excellent at explaining issues.
DR. AFSHARI'S TO ME IS THE BEST SURGEON IN JACKSONVILLE, HE REALLY CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS!!!!
I would refer anyone needing surgery to Dr Afshari. I was very well cared for and follow up care as needed was made a high priority by him and his staff. Showing great care and concern for my overall health and well being.
