  • Dr. Jafari was one of the most caring doctors I have met. He constantly provided care for me without judgement and was always a positive influence in me getting sober and becoming the parent, son, friend, and employee that I was meant to be. Such a loss too early for a great man who did nothing but help and give back to people whose lives will forever be altered including mine, thanx to Dr. Jafari.

  • What a beautiful cause to keep his legacy going.

  • Sometimes someone gets in the way of your life, and you feel the meaning of being alive from the bottom of your heart. No matter how many times you see him or hear his voice, you are all set because you feel him from the bottom of your heart. Someone who sometimes you feel is an existence of yourself manifested in another body! Siavash IS indescribable to me. Siavash IS all my thoughts day and night. Siavash IS all my whisper day and night and in the depths of my soul. Siavash IS more than a brother, a close friend, a teacher, and a doctor. He IS someone who can not be described. I can accept the idea of my own demise, but I am unable to accept the non-existence of anyone else! I find it impossible to let Siavash go into that country of no return! I answer the heroic question 'Death, where is thy sting?' with 'It is here in my heart and mind and memories.' There isn't a single day without you being in my thoughts, and I will never address you with the past tense because you are HERE! You are always a Medicare Medical Clinic for me. LOVE YOU, SIAVASH. Do you hear me?! This wound will be in my body forever ....

  • The first days of immigration to Canada were very difficult for us. The presence of Dr. Siavash and his help to us was very valuable. Dr. Siavash was a noble and kind human being who will never be forgotten. In this heartbreaking grief, we sympathize with my dear Suzanne and Ghazaleh Jan.God bless him 🖤🖤🌷🌷
