This office has zero regard for patients. They deal with people who have serious psychiatric issues and they book appointment times in windows of 2 hours expecting people to wait by the phone. Then don't answer their phone when they are called. This level of patient service is ridiculous especially during this time of covid when the doctor is probably sitting at home. Surely you can accommodate patients as if you did in the office? I would hate to see how they treat the patient in-person.

Dr. Khaja doesn't possess one scintilla of compassion, and it's quite obvious he only cares about making as much money as possible. He is not a good listener over the phone, and is arrogant, dismissive, and rude. Angela, possibly a nurse, (who I spent 55 minutes over the phone with) told me I could call her if I had any questions anytime is disingenuous, and unprofessional. I called for her multiple times, and she didn't bother to call me back. I had a Telemedicine follow-up appointment scheduled, and Dr. Khaja was an unprofessional no show. I should have looked a bit more closely at reviews for him - 2.1 stars out of 5 stars RIGHT ON HIS WEBSITE IS EMBARRASSING. Lastly, I needed "specific medication", and Dr. Khaja attempted to force a change of prescription drugs combination down my throat. He didn't even ask me if I wanted to think about it. In lieu of the aforementioned, he calls the two prescriptions into my pharmacy. So, here I sit without any medication the medication I need!

I have gone a week without my meds even after explaining to the doctor and staff that I was experiencing traumatic things in my life... I recently was in a severe abusive relationship and it took swat team and about 40 sheriff's to get me out of the home and away from my ex... so even a person without anxiety and depression would be very stressed out!! And yet I still am a week late on getting my meds because they keep forgetting to call me back or respond to the pharmacy or hospital!!! Every time I call the receptionist acts like she forgot I've called at all!! She needs a new job! I do not feel good mentally at all and I can't even get ahold of my psychiatrist!! Insane!!

Seriously some of the worst customer service I have ever had my appointment was yesterday at noon so I called about 30 times after 2 before 5 PM finally got a hold of him at 4:51 and he reassured me my prescription would be sent right away ( I had been waiting at pharmacy since 2pm ) And around 6 PM I finally gave up when the pharmacist told me they had still not received anything .. I’ve called atleast 50 times today and out of 50 calls she answered once at 10 am to tell me that she sees that it was sent over incorrectly and it just says processing but she will fix it and send it over immediately .. So I go to the pharmacy yet again wait another 2 hours getting my calls forwarded.pharmacist even got involved still nothing so 50$ later in Uber rides and boom they answer my call at 4:30 pm to tell me she is finishing it up and she’ll call to confirm .Welp didn’t happen ... Best part is she literally took the phone off the hook till five how pathetic

I’ve been a patient for 3+ years. Staff is friendly and attentive to my needs. I’ve been to both offices to see Dr. Khaja, and both offices are tidy and organized. I’m always able to get an appointment at the last minute if needed. This doctor listened and gave me advice on the areas where I needed improvement and then he helped me improve. I feel better and I am better because of Dr. Khaja. People say he’s doesn’t pay enough attention when I think he does. His communication style is direct and a lot of people confuse that with not enough attention. I highly recommend Dr. Khaja.

For someone who is supposed to be educated on human behavior, he lacks emotional intelligence and shows a lot of signs of narcissism. He also tried telling me that focus is a skill immediately before his phone rang while in our meeting and he answered it abruptly. I meant really? Didn't even say excuse me or acknowledge what just occurred. He just let himself get distracted. Way to lead by example lmao.

First time visit with the doctor for my 3 year old son. We waited for over an hour to be seen. Office was clean and comfortable and staff was very nice. We were braught to the doctors office, and he was busy doing something so it took him a bit to acknowledge us. We began discussing why we there, he spoke of medication and I Voiced that I oppose the idea of him on medication and the entire appointment was him trying to tell me I have an irrational way of thinking. After it all he asked what can he do for me. Well evaluate my son??He tried to diagnose my son just by looking at him.

My visits and interactions with Dr. Khaja were very professional. Waiting periods were short, unfortunately so were the periods I was seen by the doctor. My complaint is with regards to his approach to treating my long term middle of the night insomnia. He listened to my history and gave me some options, unfortunately he ended up prescribed to me a benzodiazepine and a hypnotic, with my consent, assuring me it would be safe taking them long term. In his defense, I did mention I had tried various other medications, which no longer worked for me.

Dr. Khaja is the best doctor I’ve seen. I’ve had many doctors treat me through the years. He’s worth the wait.

As a new patient I found the office to be very nice and comfortable, waiting time was reasonable. The front office staff was kind and caring. Dr. Khaja was great. He listened to my medication concerns and together we decided to change my meds & dosage. The past reviews had me concerned, but did not find any truth to them. I will definitely continue my care with Dr. Khaja.

Dr. Khaja and his team are very professional. The offices have a welcome, clean and friendly ambiance to them. This is one of the few psychiatrists that will treat you according to your medical conditions. His team are wonderful and I cannot say more positive words about them.

The negative reviews are WRONG they are mad because the wait is long to see him but he has a LOT of patients to see because of their free insurance! He listened to me, didnt just shove meds down my throat told me I also needed to talk to a therapist because of my issues but we tried different meds till I found the one that works! He is a great man.

I was very disappointed in the outcome of my appointment. HCP did not read my record prior to my 1st visit, treated me as if I was making up my confirmed diagnosis and was generally quite short to me. Did not want to hear anything about my situation and had a selection of medication to recommend prior to knowing anything about me. Was very snippy and dismissive when I asked why he came to that conclusion. I dont even think if this man realizes or cares how insulting and rude he comes off...

I have a fear of getting help in the first place, he was definately worse than I expected. He barely made eye contact/smiled which led me breaking down in front of him. He said "normal people dont do that" He made me so uncomfortable and Im expected to open up whats wrong with me. (1st eval) He took a look at my history, jumped to a conclusion, and sent me off. I walked out feeling very humiliated. I dont want to ruin this guys reputation at all. I am just hoping he works on his bed side manner

Completely unwilling to schedule urgent appoints in a timely matter. Doctor and staff do not seem to get along. Waiting room is always loud and often times does not have enough seats. Doctor routinely runs late. Doctor does not listen to demands from insurance company to properly fill prescriptions. Does not fill out prescriptions accurately leading to issues at the pharmacy. For your own safety, please look for a different doctor.
