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)

I have seen several cardiologists and am lucky to have found Dr. Khawaja. If he weren?t my doctor he would be my friend. He has proven to be caring, considerate and cares about you. He always takes the time to listen and explain everything to your satisfaction. He doesn?t make you feel as though you are a patient who is just a number, but rather the only patient he has. He truly senses your feelings and wants to help you. He and his staff have always been professional.
Always in a rush. Rude to his staff and didn't seem to care about the reason for my visit.
