I am a patient of dr kahn's. I have read the other reviews and I have observed the same traits about the man. he is arrogant, a poor listener, and spends too much time bragging about himself. it is his excellent staff that keeps me as his patient. his nurse practitcioner, betsy is a qualified, professional and I have great confidence in her. just recently he has started making his office staff clean the front office. I find this very insulting and disrespectful & told him so in a letter

took my mother in law in after a recommendation because he is an elder care specialist and was extremely disappointed. He refused to listen to her as to why she was on her current medications and dismissed all of her chronic pain as Vit. D deficiency. He wanted to immediately after 1 visit pull her off of her pain medication and anti-depressants saying that people over 60 do no need those medications. He has NO bedside manner at all and would cut her off and refer to her as Dr. ****

I have already recommended Dr. Khan to family and friends. Dr Khan save my life . I always been able to make appointments . when needed , office is always clean, and i love the office environment. and staff is very friendly . When ever Dr Khan make a decision i know its right. He always listens and explains medical conditions to me. When he come in to talk to about a problem he will give the time to find out what is going on before he leave . The first time i seen Dr khan he wanted to know abou

We chose Dr Khan for our loved one who has dementia. We have been there several times for different things but do not feel he is proactive enough and we feel like we really to left to fend for ourselves while our loved one suffers...We have actual concerns but it seems as if he does not really listen you us or cares about our concerns not the behavioural problems that we live with everyday. It's definitely time to find someone new that will listen and does care... our loved ones are not cattle.

Zaheer was recommended to us after mother's apparent stroke. Dr. Zaheer Khan dismissed the MRI (from initial emergency room visit) showing possible stroke and stated nothing more than acute delirium. He stopped a few medicines from a previous Dr. and let her BP stay at 200+ until I started demanding action after 3 days. About 4 months later, while taking exam for cataract surgery, it was discovered that she lacked vision in one quadrant of each eye indicating past stroke as originally thought.

He was defensive and did not listen to anything the family had to say. I am a geriatrician and I would never treat families of patients this way...no matter how difficult or high maintenance or medically illiterate a family might be, they deserve respect as does the patient. When I attempted to find out more about my family member's care and plan upon discharge from the hospital he was rude, dismissive and hung up on me, stating he was busy.
in Huntsville, AL |
He's arrogant and won't listen to the patient's medical history. Took my dad here twice. Both times got a total run down of how many degrees & what colleges Dr. Khan went too. Dad is seeing an infectious disease specialist for cellulitis & Dr. Khan refuses to accept his problem the infection responds to antibiotic treatments. Dr. Khan states that it's only blood seepage and what the specialist is doing will not work. He has NOT examined my dad's other issues; just put him on meds w/no exam.

Refused to provide my elderly mother with correct medication and nearly put her in a diabetic coma due to oversight on his part of not checking her sugar levels and over sedating. While continuing to administer diebetis medication.
