I cannot say enough good things about Dr Khatri and her team! From my very first visit, she sat down and listened to everything I had going on without rushing me, she asked questions and I left Cleveland Clinic with a treatment plan. I love Dr Khatri, she treated us like she had known us all our warm and caring. I wish I had came to Cleveland Clinic years ago!

Reviewed on Aug 13, 2019

Dr Khatri is nothing short of amazing! I truly believe that had I not came to Cleveland Clinic and seen Dr Khatri when I did, I would not have survived much longer. I had seen every "ologist" around my hometown (8 hours from Cleveland) and they all treated symptoms within their scope of practice, but no one was putting it all together. I brought a folder with office visit notes and labs. Dr Khatri went through everything and saw the big picture. she made a treatment plan and once it was put into action, I saw results that very same night!

Both Dr. Khatri and NP Magruder have continued to provide outstanding care for me. Honestly, they have raised my expectations of my other healthcare providers. In short, they continue to raise the bar and I could not hope for a more compassionate, professional and knowledgable team of healthcare providers. I cannot adequately express my complete confidence and satisfaction with the care they have given me.

Reviewed on Jul 10, 2019

I realize my praise of the care I receive may seem a little over the top, but as I have said before I have never experienced such total care from any healthcare provider in my entire life. Perhaps this will put my satisfaction into perspective: I was born and raised in the south but have been fortunate enough to travel the world. I have never considered leaving the south to live on a permanent basis, but I would move to Cleveland in a heartbeat were that the only way to continue to receive their care.

Dr. Khatri and NP Magruder have been amazing. This has been and continues to be the very best experience I have ever had in the industry. I have a very serious Dx and the compassion, understanding and care I have received is beyond compare. From office visits to telephone calls, Dr. Khatri and NP Magruder have been extremely helpful, understanding and compassionate. I know I have the very best team possible managing my pulmonary care and treating my disease. At this appointment, they both took the time to explain my disease, its progression and the treatment plan moving forward in great detail. They even took time to calm my wife after we received the diagnosis. I know I am rambling on, but I just cannot praise Dr. Khatri and NP Magruder enough. They are truly the best providers I have ever experienced and are outstanding representatives of Cleveland Clinic. I drive over 8 hours to my appointments and have to stay in a hotel at least one night each trip. Dr. Khatri and NP Magruder make sure that all my appointments and procedures are scheduled for one day with almost no wait time. Please know I would gladly drive twice as far to receive their care!
