I saw Dr Khalifeh for hemorrhoids which were troublesome and causing significant anxiety. She carried out the consultation in an extremely professional and sensitive manner. She took the time to explain the problem and provide reassurance. I would certainly go back to her in the future if I need to

Dr. Khalifeh should be cloned. This is a dedicated Doctor that provides Therapeutic Communication and simple Patient Teaching. You are not treated like "A Number but as a person seeking medical help". Something I have not seen in many doctors. Dr. Khalifeh is highly recommended.

It was excellent. She is a very capable and caring person and I profited from her expertise. An operation and recovery that usually entails some pain and discomfort had none of these adverse effects on me. I recommend her unequovically.

Dr. Khalifeh and her staff treated me with the utmost respect.. She and her staff reassured me, normalized conversation about difficult topics, took time to answer all my questions, and provided me with clear-cut next steps for my care. I trust the decisions she made for my care. I would rather not need care from a colorectal surgeon but since I do, I absolutely feel I am in good hands.

Dr. Khalifeh was very informative and made me feel very comfortable. Once I saw the doctor I was in and out quickly. However the website said to arrive 30 minutes early for new patients which I did, but there was no paperwork to fill out so it really wasn’t necessary. It made my wait time just over an hour before seeing the doctor. I do highly recommend the practice, just bring a book.
