My mother was sent to Dr. Khawaja due to accute, sudden swelling and shortness of breath. After he reviewed her results, he said a few words to her and said nothing to me or my father about his findings. Sent her home althought she was in respiratory failure with an oxygen lvl of 76!! I work in the medical field and was appalled and flabbergasted they sent her home! Needless to say, I took her straight to HP ER where she is now getting the care she needs. I wouldn't take my dog there! Shame

I work in the medical field and I understand we are the most critical of treatment in our healthcare, however, the treatment of my mother from this Dr. really flabbergasted me. Without going into a lot of details, I must say, this is the worst I've seen in the treatment of a patient. She is in CHF, with LVH, and pulmonary edema/effusion? Her oxygen levels were NOT checked and she was released on these findings the same day?! (with a referral appointment with the lung Dr. 3 weeks later)

Always in a rush. Rude to his staff and didn't seem to care about the reason for my visit.
