Had cataract surgery for both eyes. Dr. Khator explained everything all the way through the process. Left no open questions. Extremely cautious and thorough; truly caring. Advised what she believed my vision would be following surgery. My vision turned out to be better than anticipated. A very pleasant surprise!

I highly recommend Dr. Khator. I am a healthcare professional and when I moved to Florida a few years ago I saw Dr. Khator for a routine eye exam. On my first visit she detected an early and difficult-to-detect iris melanoma. My superb care was not accidental. Both Dr. Khator and iris specialist Dr. Shane trained at the world class Bascom Palmer Institute in Miami where I was referred for successful cancer treatment.

I was referred to Dr Khator because of her professional AND specialty. From the moment i called for my first appointment to meet and greet, i HAVE BEEN impressed. The care, compassion and empathy was and still is tremendous. Everything i was looking for from staff to nurses to Dr Khator herself EXCEEDED my expectation well over two-fold. She appreciated me as a new patient overwhelming AND i respected her from the moment of introduction and for the future. Very very knowledgeable.
Very knowledgable Excellent clinician I feel she has one foot in the door of the room you are being seen and one foot out the door ready to run to the next patient
