She was on time - 8:30am. Asked all the right questions. Answered all my questions. Professional. Came across as knowledgeable. However, she would (unconsciously), frown every time I opened my mouth to talk as if waiting to see if I could put 2 sentences together.

Review for Dr. Khalid

I've been seeing Dr. Garfinkle for years, due to my retina macular pucker. We monitored it for years, he then had to remove it, and has been following me carefully since then to ensure that it doesn't reoccur. I feel very confident in his care and we always have a nice catch- up chat.

Dr. Rhodes has been my physician for 27 years. At our first encounter, I would not have been able to walk if not for her pain-management procedure. Dr. Rhodes's expertise is exceptional, as is her compassion and caring for her patients.
