What People Say About Dr. Asma Khapra, MD

Referred to MD in the practice, but was booked. Settled for Dr Khapra who ordered diag exam to measure esophageal function. Her PA called after rcpt of results. MD wanted me to meet w/PA to discuss 4 options to include surgery. Stated I wanted to speak w/MD. PA said OK & booked 8:30 am appt. When receptionist called my name it was to meet w/PA. I said,"No." & requested my file be closed & forwarded to PCP. MDs from GWU med school etc tend to act as if they are superior to the patient.

Extremely unreliable in terms of availability. I got an appointment for my mother with a wait of 2 months. After a month a got a call saying that the doctor was canceling the appointment and the next appointment is another 2 months out. So 4 months wait. Even at the scheduled appointment Dr Khapra is consistently late. Patients are encouraged to see physician assistants instead. It’s time Dr Khapra stopped accepting new patients. This is bringing a bad name to the GANV practice.

Dr Khapra is a good doctor, if you're lucky enough to get an appointment in time. Her schedule is mostly booked for weeks (if not months) and you have to settle with seeing her physician assistant if there is anything urgent. She also keeps you waiting at her appointments and seldom shows up on time. She should stop accepting new patients. I may move on to another gastroenterologist.

Doctor Asma Khapra was referred to me by a 5 star OBGYN who has been voted Top Doctor multiple years in a row in our region. But even with that, I made 3 appointments with different gastrointestinal doctors to essentially interview them and discuss the issues I was having. I wound up choosing Dr. Khapra and thank goodness I did. She has a wonderful bedside manner (kind), & is knowledgable without being self-important. My procedure was painless, the staff attentive, and the follow-up perfect!

A++++. In December 2016, Dr. Khapra performed a colonoscopy on me at INOVA Woodburn Surgery Center. She was outstanding, as was all the surgical team. She has great bedside manner, is an effective communicator and took time after the procedure to provide me with a detailed summary of the procedure with pictures and recommended the timeframe for my next colonoscopy, 7-10 years. Dr. Khapa is providing a report to my primary care doctor. I did not have to ask her for it.

Dr. Khapra has been exceptional in clearly explaining my condition and during appointments and after procedures. I find her highly competent and willing to spend time to make sure I understand my condition. I trust her judgement.

I have Crohn's disease. When I was in remission and had no urgency to see the Dr, my experience was fine. When I came out of remission and really needed help, however, it was almost impossible to be seen (and then it only by PAs). It took weeks of pain and waiting to get on medication. In addition, my most recent colonoscopy resulted in so much blood loss that I almost had to get a blood transfusion . Dr. Khapra never called or checked on me once. As far as I can tell, she does not care at all.

Kept me waiting. Acted like she didn't want to be there. Uninterested in in the reason I was there. Acted like her hair was on fire. Just wanted to deal with me as little as possible. If you want a doctor who will take the time needed to do their job, has a little caring, and social skills keep away from Khapra.

While I really liked Dr. Khapra's bedside manner, approachability, availability and appearance of knowledge, she made a HUGE mistake that landed me in the hospital and could have easily killed me. She took me off the two medicines I knew were helping and put me on a medicine that is known to leach magnesium (already magnesium deficient and on supplements) and has a black box warning for prolonging QT intervals. The med was expensive and not necessary (many other safer options). BE CAUTIOUS.

Dr. Khapra is extremely kind, caring, and a skilled GI physician. She took the time to understand a urological condition that I also have and personalized the approach to diagnosing my IBS. She spent at least 20 minutes talking to me and my husband after a procedure - even at the end of a long day in the surgery center. Her office is very responsive in sharing test results and dealing with insurance issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Khapra to my friends, family and colleagues.
