Patient Comments (5)
Roseville, CA |
Been treated by DrcKhalili for six years. Most compassionate, understanding, and open minded doctor I've had in 45 years. Always works for the patient. Have no idea what other people are complaining about...
Dr. Khalili is an excellent Doctor. His Office staff however are completely inept. I have been receiving Botox injections for a year. They help tremendously. It is administered once every 90 days. Botox is suppose to be ready for my use at my appointment times. Not always the case. I have been rescheduled extending the distance at which I receive the injections. I start to experience more headaches as the distance increases from the prior injection. Staff turn over rate is high.

I completely admire and respect Dr. Khalili. After being misdiagnosed for over 40 years, Dr. Khalili accurately diagnosed my condition within in a few minutes. He is always patient and takes time to explain and answer any questions. He makes himself available via online messaging. I am very grateful to have him as my Neurologist.

What an incredible guy! Immediately my husband (who is in the medical field) said "Wow, he's so thorough"….he was personable, explained things in a very straight-forward way, was understanding, and at the end of the first appointment I really didn't have any questions because he had gone in to so much detail. He's warm and friendly and really makes your feel at ease! I would recommend him to anyone!

I would give 0 stars if I could. This primarily about his office staff, which is the most incompetent bunch I have ever dealt with. I am an existing patient. I have been seen by Dr. Khalili at least four other times. However, in making my appointment, the office staff said I was a "new" patient because I hadn't been seen in over a year. They got appointment times wrong twice, and numerous other errors. Stay away. His staff reflects on him.
