Dr. Al-Khoury has been treating me for migraines for a few years. She is amazing. She spends a long time listening to my opinions and is extremely thoughtful about what my treatment plans are. She genuinely cares about my health and who I am as a patient. She doesn't just push medication on me and send me on my way. I highly recommend her.

Hate this doctor, very critical, finds every single thing wrong with my permanent brain damage that I was born with. No cure for it. Walked out her office because she made feel like poop and did not explain one thing. Never going back!

The doctor seems like she knows what she's talking about but that doesn't extend to the actual care. Wrong prescriptions were sent which is pretty dangerous. Then, incorrect labs were written requiring multiple trips and pokes. As I was in the middle of my physical therapy an occupational therapy, my insurance changed and the doctor dropped me. She refused to return my 5 messages asking for my test results or to allow me access to my medical records. Her schedule was terrible too. 1 day per week
