Patient Comments (11)
in Emmett, MI |
dr not friendly, did a poor physical exam, staff didn't take my pulse or temperature, didn't listen to my main reason for being there, my wife felt same, long wait.
in Croswell, MI |
I would never recommend her for my animals. Very rude. When I told her my mother recommended her she proceeded to tell me that my mother was noncompliancant and that meant I was going to be noncompliancant also. I went to her looking for help. Needless so say my first visit with her was my last visit. Oh ya and she thinks everyone is a Med seeker. Well guess what lady not everyone is and if your living with a diagnosis autoimmune disease I am almost sure you experience some kind of pain.
in East China, MI |
Went in for an apptointmebt regarding an increase in joint pain and enlarged lymph nodes only to have my symptoms dismissed. Never had my vitals taken or examined. Was told my blood work was fine in 2014 so no need to check again. I was compeltley dumbfounded. Poor excuse for a physician.
in Columbus |
After walking into the exam room, Dr. Khalil didn't introduce herself after waiting for an hour she was very disinterested in why I was there. Terrible bedside manner. I will not be going back for my results. After finally introducing myself, she still didn't introduce herself. I will not recommend this Dr.

I've been with DrKhalil for many years now She has always listened to me anytime I had a question or concern. The staff is friendly & I've never had a problem getting in to see her when needed.
in Port Huron, MI |
Dr. Kahlil is very compassionate and knowledgeable. Her staff is friendly.

My experience with Dr. Khalil since March 2016 has been very pleasant. She has always been attentive to my needs an let me participate in my care. I've never had a problem with waiting time before being seen in office. Dr. Khalil and her staff have always been very professional and caring. My health has improved tramendously since being treated by her. A Big Thank You to her and her staff.
in St. Clair, MI |
I just left her office, and I will not be going back (I had been seeing her for over a year and it never got better). Her bedside manners are completely lacking. I had big concerns about the fact that she recorded my medications wrong and never bothered to get any records for my previous RA doctor. I ended up in a position where I ran out of my main RA medication, and she still felt that I was out of place for trying to talk to her about it. .She is arrogant and does not seem to care.
in St Clair, MI |
Took six weeks for her office to schedule my referral app for TWO months out and did not give a reminder call. Dr. Khalil is a very insensitive person in my opinion. Apparently she is not in need of new patients....
in Ira, MI |
DR.Khalil is the most caring and through doctor that I have ever seen. I love her and her staff. She doesn't just treat the symptoms of my disease she treats the disease. The wait time may be long, but it is worth it and I know she is giving great care to me when she does arrive.
Wait of 2-3 hours on appointment days. Beyond bloodwork, no further investigation of issues and no assistance or alternatives when I denied pain medications
