    a visit to Dr G. Khan's office is like a step towards death. His staff is useless. He himself is often not even in the office until one or two hours AFTER his office hours begin. So you, as the patient, will literally sit there on his cheap chairs in his ghetto office for hours feeling more and more ill as you linger. He insists that you return for this torture monthly if you wish to continue getting medication from him, all in a ruse to bilk more $$ from Medicaide. I ran screaming away. NO
