Does not approve of family members asking for explanations! Didn’t even walk into room to check my mom. Stood at the door to tell me to let the nurses give her her meds! Bad bedside manner!

Dr Khokar always listens to your concerns and helps you understand what is happening to your lungs. He is easy to talk with and puts you at ease. When talking with anybody, especially if they are having pulmonary issues, I mention his name.

Dr. Khokar is an outstanding Pulmonologist, skilled as well as exceptionally intelligent. (I have waited for him to perform a procedure rather than go to someone else.) In addition, I have a strong background in both Pulmonary Research along with being a Respiratory Therapist before obtaining my MD. Cynthia M. Bush MD

I hold Dr Khokar in the highest regards both personally and professionally! I would recommend him to anyone seeking a specialist in his field! I've been treated by several pulmonary specialists and he is by far the best I've seen. I have complete trust in his knowledge and decisions in treating my condition. I'm thankful for having found him and as long as insurance allows, he will remain my Dr indefinitely.

I visited Dr Khokar for the first time in November, 2018 and sought his professional opinion on a serious problem I had been experiencing with my lungs. Dr Khokar sat down with me, brought my CT Scan up on the computer and explained all the appropriate findings seen on the Scan. He discussed a plan going forward and worked with me to establish positive outcomes. Dr Khokar is intelligent, experienced, caring and a wonderful MD. He is professional and explains treatment plan options. Excellent

Very impressed with Dr Khokar’s understanding of my breathing issues and the best procedure needed to improve them. The first time I met him he had studied my past diagnosis and procedures and had a plan ready. He was very understanding of my 2 hour drive to Gainesville and the day after the bronoscopy ballooning he personally called me to check on my recovery. A week later he called again to report blood testing results and check on my breathing which has greatly improved!

Rude doctor to his staff and pushes patients to do unnecessary and possibly harmful procedures. Would not recommend him for you or your family.

I met Dr. Khokar while a patient at North Florida Hospital and found him to be very pleasant. He was very receptive to my needs , had time and patience for my questions, and would have me as a patient. Since then I have seen him once in his office and I would highly recommend him.
