in Elizabeth, NJ |
My experience so far has been excellent! Dr. Khan exhibits a relaxed demeanor that made me feel at ease. He is very approachable, open to questions and a good listener who offers concise but precise answers to all my questions. In addition, Dr. Khan remembers: my name, my profession, my interests, my nutritional mode, etc. I firmly believe that to him I’m not a patient but a person. To me, he is a very nice human being who conducts himself in a very professional manner.

I have a relatively rare eyelid condition and Dr.Khan is of very few that understand it well and treat it properly. He has also helped me explore all treatment options and eventually recommended additional treatments which were successful. The office is also very proficient at administering the various eye tests to monitor my condition.
