This testimonial is given for Nurse Asia Zafir who is caregiver for me and my wife. she is an outstanding professional in her duties. She has caught over-subscribing meds for my wife, of which the Dr agreed and sent a compliment for her on catching the problem. For me who had a heart attack three years ago and had breathing problems so bad I could not function properly for the whole time, she caught  poor lung function and put me on the breath unit that you exercise your lungs, and within two days I was able to walk around without physical fatigue and now almost back to full strength. Her professional knowledge seems excellent and her calm caring personality is a pleasure to see each visit. Getting her to smile is a challenge of which I get great pleasure. She is very caring and through on all commitments to recommendations to Drs for suggestions and diagnosis. I have seen over the years many nurses, and Asia is one of the best I have encountered.
