Excellent bedside manner. Takes his time to explain complex diseases in simple ways. My father has gotten many injections in the past with other doctors which were painful. With Dr Khan, he hardly felt anything! Highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Khan provided me with excellent care over the past two years. I'd really like to continue to see him but he is leaving the practice. He was very good about explaining each procedure and answered any questions that I had. In addition to his expertise, I also appreciated his considerate manner...more
