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.

Dr. Khalifeh was extremely professional, without being aloof, superior, or unapproachable. She seems to be an exceptional technician at her craft, but is also genuinely concerned about her patients and their recovery. Would absolutely recommend her without any reservations. Our family had questions after discharge from the hospital, and Dr. Khalifeh and her staff were very responsive to our concerns. The doctor also did her best to address concerns and issues we had with the sub-par care we received at the skill-less nursing center our mother spent several weeks at, post-op.

My interaction with Dr. Khalifeh was excellent and what a person would expect/hope for in a surgeon. She was informative, straight forward, friendly, professional and to the point. The front office staff was adequate, the nurses were helpful. One of the schedulers I dealt with was rude, condescending, and snide (snarky) which was truly surprising. I wish I'd recorded our conversation. When I have to schedule future visits you can bet I'll record the call because an employee like that can really hurt a good practice. I would recommend Dr. Khalifeh and already have.

I was very impressed with Dr. Khalifeh's bedside manner and her genuine concern and explanation of the problem at hand. Most doctors these days just do not want to give patients the time they need and deserve to explain things. I didn't feel rushed at all. She brought up many good points. I am glad to know there are some doctors out there that really care about their patients and just do not pretend to.
