Dr. Khan was knowledgeable about menopause Issues and the offered me a number of options. She provides what I feel to be an essential service to perimenopausal and menopausal women as a certified menopause provider. It felt good walking into the office knowing that I wasn't going to be dismissed or gaslit in regards to my symptoms and concerns, Which so many women are. I will recommend Dr. Khan to all of my friends who are also entering the menopausal years because I feel she provides superior and thoughtful care in this area.

This was my second visit with Dr Khan. I very much like her. I asked her some questions outside her areas of expertise and she provided advice for getting care. She was also great about why I actually had an appointment with her.

Reviewed on Nov 8, 2023

I have seen Dr. Khan 3 times, twice when she had a student and she was very respectful. The last time I saw her she didn't have a student. She was 20 mins late to the appt and only spent 5 mins with me. She was extremely rude and rushy, I almost felt like I was with a different physician. She at one point scolded me for have more than 3 questions to ask her. She falsified documentation by copying half of the visit notes from the past visit which had information and complaints that weren't relevant anymore. At the end of the 5 mins she stood up, held the door for me and shooed me out without mentioning when to follow up with her. I left the office and went into the waiting area where my husband was and cried because I have never felt so disrespected as a patient. I will not go see her again and I would not recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Khan has not only been the best women's health provider i've ever had, but the best doctor i've ever had. We've only met once in person and a couple of times virtually.

DR.Khon tried to remove my IUD that displaced, she new this before trying to remove it and she became irritated with me that it me caused pain and decided to leave it in there for another doctor to remove. I left in more pain than I came in with and offered no pain relief before or after trying to remove. After returning home I started bleeding heavily and increased amounts or pain, my IUD strings were hanging out of my vagina. My IUD had been dislodged by this doctor and she showed no concern or my pain and discomfort. Her bed side Manner was horrible. I had to go the emergency room to get it dislodged. She caused me more damage than helping me. Her only solution was for me to see a surgeon witch meant I would have to go weeks with the IUD that was dislodged and causing me pain and bleeding.

Dr. Khan was very intelligent, understanding and compassionate. She explained things well and verified the interpretation of information. She was swift and very impressive. I felt so grateful and comfortable in her care.

Reviewed on Jul 20, 2023

It felt very rushed and she didn't get a full picture of my medical status. She asked several questions during the exam, but never got a comprehensive view. The big conversations I wanted to have happened during the exam, when I was uncomfortable. When she discovered my condition, I felt like It was not explained at all. She said I needed to get additional tests done, but did not explain what they were or what they would entail. I also feel like she talked me into a decision about contraception that I was clearly unsure about without really consulting my needs or worries. Overall I feel more confused and less heard than before the appointment.

Reviewed on Jul 14, 2023

Dr. Khan is excellent. She explained in detail, listened, expressed empathy, and treated the problem to the best of her knowledge. And referred out for more testing and things out of her specialty. She is hands down the best doctor I have ever had (and I've had a lot)

I waited longer for her than she actually spent with me. She gave the fastest Pap smear I've ever had. Not that I wanted it to be long, but it seemed inadequate for her to really to check me to ensure e everything was okay. She never introduced herself to me, nor did she ask for my name. I won't see her again. I'll continue to look for a doctor with better bedside manners.
