Unprofessional, arrogant, feels like he's above all, my husband just got out of the hospital three days ago and Dr. Alkhuja prescribed like a c-pac for my husband which he refused and informed him to find another doctor to treat him. My husband suffers from congestive heart failure and was very upset when this Dr called today and advised him to find another doctor. I think this is very unprofessional.

Dr. Alkhuja always has time for me even if his schedule is full he will somehow fit me in. He pays attention to what i have to say and doesn't make me feel like my symptoms are incorrect as some other physicians do. He treats the whole patient not just pulmonary.

What a wonderful and thorough Doctor. With a chest scan he found a large cancerous tumor on my kidney! Another time, he also found a tumor on my lung and stressed the importance of taking care of things quickly. I owe my life to this man....as a 9/11 responder, I feel comfortable with him and his decisions, it's for the patient not for the money.

I went In with stabbing chest and rib pain, he tells me it sounds like pleurisy and sends me on my way. The pain gets worse so I go back 2 days later. He comes out and says " I can't see u everyday, insurance will come after me" it was only the 2nd time I've seen him in many mnths. Then I told him I was still in pain and rite away he insults me by saying "I can't give u narcotics" insinuating that I was drug seeking. I told him that I just wanted antibiotics to treat the condition. What a jerk

I was sent for a CT scan of my chest. He received a copy of the report, handed it to me and told me it was Normal! I had a 4 cm. mass under the breastbone. It was right there in black and white. Had I not went to another specialist, I would have never known I had cancer. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy!
