Tried to get an appointment with Dr Khan but it would be months away. I had poison ivy at the time and went to another practice. i was told by a PA at the another practice that I had a melanoma spot on my chest. He took a sample and said I needed to come back in a week to remove it. Biopsy showed it was melanoma. When I saw Dr. Khan he did not see it, said possible the PA took it all out for the biopsy. I will return in four months for another look.

J. W. – Aug 27, 2021
I was very pleased with the doctor & staff. Dr. Khan was very thorough with exam and explanations of all my concerns. He honestly took the time during the visit to completely exam me. He addressed all the issues I had. From the moment I walked in the office I was taken care of. The front desk reception to the assistant to the doctor made you very comfortable. I was so nervous about my concerns before appointment. They immediately made me feel assured that my needs would be met. I left there with the biggest relief. I’m so happy I found a doctor that I wouldn’t feel afraid to return to. I would recommend him highly

I was thinking how can I get a solution, So that my body can be okay. Until one faithful day as I was browsing on the internet I saw a testimony on how Dr. Edualekhide has helped people in curing Herpes and other diseases, quickly I copied his WhatsApp number +2349134774294, so i contacted him for solution for my Herpes disease, So Dr. Edualekhide told me that his going to prepare his herbal medicine for my health which he sent to me, luckily after 2week my Herpes was cured. Dr. Edualekhide is well recognized as one of the best herbalist doctors in Africa, you don't have to be sad anymore or share your tears anymore on this disease when the cure is available. The medicine has NO SIDE EFFECT, There's no special diet when taking the medicine. He also cures ALS, HIV AIDS, CANCER, HPV, DIABETES and lots more. Here is his E-mail: dredualekhide@gmail.com You can quickly reach me on via mail: angelaoscar06@gmail.com

Dr. Kahn is a wonderful doctor who is caring and has a wonderful bedside manner. The office staff and or call center is a big mess. They have messed up appointments, in fact they just recently scheduled an appointment when there was no doctor in the office. They have messed up billing and copays leading my sons bill being sent to a collection agency leading to ruining his perfect credit score. In addition, filling prescriptions is a nightmare in that office

Tracy A Hutt – Sep 05, 2019
The doctor himself was adequate and a nice guy but trying to speak with the office rather than the call center is difficult. The office doesnt answer the phones during business hours and return calls when it isnt convenient for the patient. There are many Dematologists in Tribeca so a patient does not have to settle for difficulties or frustrations when trying to obtain information about the last visit.
