I have been seeing Dr Alikhan for over a year and have been very, very pleased. He has a terrific bedside manner and is very willing to remain with you to answer any and all questions and concerns you have about your treatment. I have found him to be very up to date with the variety of medications available and their pros and cons. His staff is also top of the chart -- very pleasant and easy to work with, always smiling and responsive to your needs. I can recommend him without reservation!

I'm very satisfied w/ the attention I receive and the guidance and treatment Dr. Alikhan gives.

I would highly recommend Dr. Alikhan for anyone seeking a rheumatologist. He is very thorough and always takes time to explain things to me; he doesn't make me feel like he's rushing through my appointment to get to the next patient. I had been bounced around from Doctor to Doctor without a diagnosis and feel like I am finally on the right path of managing my relapsing polychondritis.

Bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. He does not believe a patient when he/she states is sick. Instead of helping a sick patient he lectures them. He is dishonest/unethical. My husband was there as he stated which Meds he would provide and then he doesn't fill them. I said to my husband, you heard him state x, y and z. But, most of all you shouldn't have to prove being sick. I have no reason to pretend at any such thing. I'd much rather be out enjoying so manyoyhet things!
I was not impressed. The two times that I went in, I felt like it was a consult. I have lupus and he doesn't go through the checks like Dr. Friedman. Like checking the hands, legs, having you do stretches etc. I would tell him things that are going on and his reccomendation was to do Pilates and excercise. I don't think he read my profile, my body is very sensitive to strenuous workouts. I will be getting my records and looking for a more experience Doctor.
