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.

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.
