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!

Reviewed on May 15, 2018

I have been a patient of Dr. Khatri's for just a few months. However, she has provided more information, experience, and treatment than six other clinicians ever could in the eleven months I attempted to find a diagnosis for my severe asthma. In fact, I am not even sure that words can encapsulate the amount of gratitude and respect I have for her. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and empathetic. She humanizes the experience and is unfailingly willing to explain all physiology, believing that her patients are in fact capable of understanding their own condition(s). In her own words, as I think she put it best, "there is always treatment and always hope. [w]e don't give up." Thank you, Dr. Khatri, for your patience, kindness and your constant, aggressive treatment of a very frustrating disease. I appreciate you and your work more than I can express!

Reviewed on May 9, 2018

Dr Khatri spent a lot of time developing a plan for my asthma and explaining to me why certain things were being ordered or prescribed. She was very kind and has an excellent bedside manner. I enjoyed my visit with her and how she involves the patient in their own care plan.
