As a patient of Dr. Kahn's for 15 years, I was just in shock today as he enter the room he questioned me about my decision to not be vaccinated at this time for covid. I told him my thoughts on the issue and he turned it from medical to political. He said you must be a Trump fan, you sound like a Trump fan, are you a Trump fan? I said if you are asking me if I voted for Trump the answer is yes. He cut me off and said Trump fans are just crazy. I said I have never had a doctor call me crazy for being cautious. Does this mean I should find a new heart Dr. He said go ahead find a new doctor, I don't care. With that I walked out. I was heartbroken and very angry. 2 hours after the encounter, at home, my blood pressure was 187/128 and when I initially went into the appt. It was my normal 126/84 . I've gone to him every 6 months for 15 years .What kind of a heart doctor would do this to a heart patient.

Absolutely the worst office staff I have ever encountered. Two visits here is enough that I would never return. The Doctor is good, but when you are treated like absolute trash by his office staff, you go somewhere else. I practice medicine and run a clinic. I would fire every one of them. Save yourself from leaving angry, go somewhere else. A Doctor is only as good as his staff. This clinic deserves -5 stars if possible! No issues with DR Khan, but if the office staff is terrible, it negates the experience with him.

My Father went and saw Dr Kahn with chest pains. Dr Khan ordered every test in the book and after interpreting the results assured him he was fine, A week later my father had a quadruple bypass and almost died. I'd urge you all to find another option. My mother accompanied my father to his visits and complained Dr Khan has "Hygiene issues" as well

Dr. Khan is straight forward but professional. He listens when I have questions and answers them. Neither he nor his staff make me feel uncomfortable in any way. I can ask any question, cardio related or not, and I get his full attention. I also really appreciate the communication between him and my PCP. They take care of the doctor speak and my PCP stays informed.

Dr Kahn has been my cardiologist since 2008. I trusted him and should not have. I am not a patient to him, only a revenue source. He and his colleague Dr Shahzad kept listing serious issues like an aortic aneurysm to run test after test and procedure after procedure. I am finally realizing my mistake in seeing him and have moved to a new cardiologist. My records request from Dr Kahn was absymal - basically I had to obtain records of procedures done via the hospital outpatient system.
