Dr. Gaffar believes it is an honor and a privilege to take care of your children. In high school, she was motivated to pursue a career in medicine after her own experience as a teenager going through surgery. She was drawn to pediatric surgery as it provides the opportunity to make an immediate impact on the lives of her patients and their families. Helping children get better and watching them as they get back to playing and growing up are her favorite parts of this job. In her free time, she enjoys ballroom dancing, being outdoors and exploring new places.
