Specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.

Jafar in San Diego

I had seen Jafar in San Diego with follow ups at the Alvarado Park Institute Physc Outpatient Treatment in Mesa Vista,CA. Very courteous and involved himself with a patients big plan and now I see him as a rich man. After my medi-cal and medicare were combined into an HMO, I had no place to go for psych treatment and lost his contact from every resource. I need to contact him to finish what he started in MyLife.
