Founder's Biography


Dr. Jaafar started his medical practice in Hondo in 1996 after completing his residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. While in Hondo, he directed the emergency room for Medina Community Hospital. From Hondo, Dr. Jaafar moved to Castroville and Bandera in 1999 and formed Medcare Associates, a medical practice comprised of physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Dr. Jaafar's goal was to serve the rural communities with the highest level of care with no need for appointments. His motto: The sick can always be seen without the burden of appointments. All patients are welcome and can see one of the many providers on any given day.

Since 1999, Dr. Jaafar has expanded Medcare Associates to also include clinics in Boerne, Utopia and San Antonio. Each clinic is centered around Dr. Jaafar's goal of optimal patient care with sufficient staff to meet the needs of each and every patient.

Dr. Jaafar enjoys forming a relationship with his patients and is committed to improving their overall health and wellness. His practice is dedicated to the long term care and treatment of these patients.

Dr. Jaafar loves being a dad and husband and has been married since 1990 to his wife Laura. They have three children, Jordan, Brandon and Sophie. When he has free time, Dr. Jaafar's passions in life are hunting, fishing and ranching.
