My wife went to Dr. Khohar. for treatment. He over medicated her and when I tried to speak to him about it he berated me and verbally attacked me. Very unprofessional.

I had met Dr.khokhar over a year ago, I have been fighting with mental disorder all my life. I found his tactics to make me understand my disorder very helpful, he recommended medication for my symptoms but when I explained I want to try natural remedies he helped me find new mindfulness ways to take an approach to my situation.

Dr. Khohar didn't take time to review my former medicine records. After I had been in an extremely difficult situation, he increased a medication that caused me to repeat myself continuously Un controllibly. My family are in the process of reporting a complaint with AMA state of California. I will never recommend him.

I had never been to a psychiatrist before coming to Mr. Khokhar. My longest appointment lasted 15 minutes to take history, medications, And most importantly, to diagnose my mental condition! The last 4 appointments lasted about 5 minutes each. My appointment was yesterday and will be the LAST! While waiting to be called back, I could hear Mr. Khokhar shouting how the patient had ‘No Right’ to question his meds or treatment! Sorry but, patients have that right!

You want a doctor that you are able to comfortably openly be honest with right? Well Dr Khokhar laughed at me when I told him something very personal today. He also tries to over medicate when it's not necessary. I told him I had one bad day out of the whole month and he said he was going to up my medication. It's hard enough having mental illness and when your laughed at by a doctor that is supposed to act professional it really upsets me.
