Dr. Alla Khalfin is a warm and kind doctor. She thoroughly answered in detail all my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend her.
Very polite and answered all questions. Understanding and willing to go a step further. A great listener and very accommodating.
I think she's great. I've been in and out of doctor's offices quite a bit over the past year or two and have always found doctors to be a bit dismissive of my symptoms. Dr. Khalfin didn't make me feel awkward or make me feel like my symptoms were insignificant.
Unlike several Endocrinologists I have been to through the years, Dr. Khalfin listens to you!
I liked her, she takes the time to explain her thought process and is not condescending!
Dr. Khalfin, was very professional, honest and showed genuine concern. She is a great listener and I appreciated all of her feedback. I would recommend anyone to her office.
Doctor was through and helpful, after years of seeing doctors who were not helpful Dr Khalfin was able to help me within a few mins of asking some questions. Wait time was reasonable. I will be returning.
Dr. Khalfin was caring and attentive. She listened and worked with me to find a solution to the problem I've been having.
She is an excellent, intelligent and thoughtful physician. I always have a great experience at this office and have full confidence in Dr. Khalfin.

What a great doctor !!! The total experience was great !!
very professional , through and personable
I like Dr. Khalfin, feel that she listens....like that you go into her office before the exam room. Wait time is getting a little out of hand...it was an hour.
Dr khalfin took her time with me. Happy in regards to her explanations. Not happy I had to fill out the forms again. I spent time doing that online.
Short wait time and didn't feel rushed during my appointment. 100% satisfied!
Excellent! Wonderful attentive doctor.
Dr. Khalfin was very sweet and took time with my son to listen to him and understand his issues with diabetes. She was very caring and concerned and had an excellent bed side manner. She's a winner!!
I have been a patient of Dr. Khalfins for three years. I always have a satisfying visit. Dr. Khalfin is such a kind, sweet professional. She allows me to talk and listens to what I have to say. My daughter and two of my friends are also very pleased with Dr Khalfin. Don't hesitate to call and schedule an appointment. I promise you will have a positive experience.
First time visit, so far so good.
The visit was good and I am happy to have been referred to her. Wait time may have been due to the fact that I was new patient.
This was a refreshing first visit with a doctor that cares about her patients well being. I look forward to being under the care of Dr Khalfin.
This is the first time I feel a doctor has taken the time to listen to what is going on and see what I need. Great experience.
Dr. Khalfin was wonderful..... she listened to all of my questions and offered varied options. She never rushed me or made me feel as if there was any reason to hurry. I am very happy with her and the staff at this office. I have found a new physician!
Very patient and skilled. She has a lot of compassion for her patients.
very sweet and professional, amazing staff!
Dr was very helpful and satisfied our concerns
Doctor Khalfin is the best endocrinologist I have had out of the different ones I have tried. Not only are you taken on time, and within 15 minutes of entering the office, but you are treated with respect and she tends to every need or question you have. Her bedside manner is delightful and comforting, and she is knowledgable and helps educate you every step of the way. Her professionalism and ability to listen to her patients is also a strong asset, and if you have a question that needs answering and it is outside your appointment, she is easily accessible and goes above and beyond to be there even when you are not in the office or during an appointment. Seeing doctor Khalfin was the best decision I have made and I plan on sticking with her in order to help successfully treat myself. Highly recommend and encourage seeing if you are looking for an endocrinologist!
Felt comfortable not rushed or too clinical and able to introduce myself, my issues and felt as I found a new partner to help me live with diabetes as well as I can :)
Excellent Doctor!!!! She listens and explains. Spends the time needed Thank you!!!!
She is very knowledgable for recent medical development in Diabetes.
I got to the office late due to rush hour traffic but saw the doctor in a reasonable amount of time. Dr. Khalfin was very professional and took an appropriate amount of time with me. She went over the report of my blood work and took steps to improve the results.
The gentleman at the front desk was efficient and not rude. The waiting room clean. The wait time was long. The Dr had a medical student sitting in on the appointment. She asked many questions and answered many of my questions. She took blood,blood pressure and sent me directly to the lab to get further tests. She was empathetic to my situation and squeezed me in for another appointment next week to review my blood work. I was pleased overall with the visit and am hopeful that she can help me find a solution.
I felt so comfortable talking to Dr.Khalfin...wonderful person who really cares about her patients..i am so happy to have found her..
She was fantastic! She really listened to me and took the time to make me feel comfortable.
Personable and helpful
She was very nice for my first visit. And listened to me (which is a major concern that I want from a doctor).
I am very pleased with the doctor. She didn't dismiss my concerns as other endocrinologists did and wasn't quick to prescribe unnecessary meds. I really liked her!
This was my first visit but I was happy with the manner in which I was treated . The doctor took her time and explained things clearly.
She is an amazing doctor. She is always look out for your best interest and health. You can ask her anything and has a wonderful "bedside manner". I would reccomend her to all my friends and family.
Very personable. Calls you herself with tests results. Very accommodating. Great beside manner.
Dr Khalfin was very informative and a excellent listener
Loved Dr. Khalfin. She really is s nice.
I was very glad to meet Dr Khalfin. She was very professional and she listened to all my concerns and addressed them. I have already recommended her to several people that would benefit from her expertise.
One of the best doctor experiences I've ever had! Answered all my questions and was genuinely interested in my overall health and well-being.
It was very informative.
Dr khalfin was very warm and caring. She took time to explain things to me. I feel I am in good hands with her.
She was very thorough and professional, did a good amount of intake and I didn't feel rushed at all. I appreciate a doctor who spends time consulting with a patient before beginning the exam. Unfortunately these days going to the doctor sometimes feels like you're on an assembly line with the clock ticking. That was not the case with Dr Khalfin.
I had a wonderful experience
Dr. Khalfin is very pleasant, attentive and thorough. I always feel that she truly has my best interest at heart. I highly recommend her!
She is caring, knowledgeable, and thorough. The office is not crowded. You do not wait long and she does not rush through your appointment. I highly recommend her.
She is a compassionate and patient doctor.
Dr Kahalfin sat down and listened to the problems I was having before taking me into the exam room I thought that was very helpful
She has alot of patience and listens which is not common these days with many doctors.
She is a wonderful, professional caring doctor who knows how to treat her patients.
I really liked Dr Khalfin a lot! She was very thorough & informative. She took as much time as needed never rushing me. She put prescriptions through to my pharmacy on the spot no hand written script. Very efficient & the staff was very nice & friendly also.
good doctor, very friendly, willing to answer questions.
Great doctor, very personable and friendly. Would highly recommend her to friends.
Dr. Khalfin is excellent, very pleasant and always helpful.
I love how she doesn't take you straight into the examination room. She first takes you to her office and really gets to know you and she takes a lot of notes. Once she gets a good idea of what's going on with you, she takes you to the examination room. After she examines you, she takes you back to her office to explain the next steps and answer all of your questions and concerns. She is very hands on with everything in her office. Her staff seems to be very comfortable around her. She is very personable, warm and easy to talk to. She is definitely one of the best!
Easy to talk to. Listens. Patient person. Good, practical advice.
Dr Khalfin took her time listening to my concerns. She was professional & caring. I am happy I went to her and plan to continue with her as my endocrinologist.
She has great manner, cares about her patients, is very knowledgable and patient on explaining details on treatment and diabetic conditions. Wait time is very limited.
The doctor is competent, ready to listen, answer the concerns and explain the details.
Dr. Khalfin is very professional. She is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful, friendly rapport that shows that her concern and care is genuine. She diagnosed several previously unknown conditions that I had not been aware of prior, for which I am very grateful for. My Diabetes and T-Levels are now improving, which will hopefully also improve my blood pressure over time. Dr. Khalfin has been a real gem to find and I would surely recommend anyone to her practice. Thank you.... James. :-)
Had a great experience with this doctor, made me feel so comfortable and took time to talk to me!
Very helpful, listens & answers any/all questions I had and actually cares about me.
She was very sweet.
She is a very caring doctor with an excellent bed side manner. I highly reccommend her!!
Dr. Khalfin was extremely professional but caring. I had absolutely no wait time and I felt that she cared and that she listened. I would highly recommend her. The one other thing that was important to me was that it did not take me months to get an appointment. I got one within less than a week. Most other endocrinologists take more than 3 months.
Waited for 45 minutes to be seen then was only seen for 15 minutes.
She was very friendly and explain things well!
Very kind, personable & professional. Answered all my questions.
I wish I had found her years ago. She is one of the best doctors I have ever experienced. Highly intelligent, but a real, caring human being. Together we are part of a process to control and reverse a health issue... I recommend her to everyone I can.
Excellent experience, the doctor was very nice amd the appointment was non rushed.
Dr. Khalfin is very professional and down to earth. I trust her judgement and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an endocrinologist in the area.
I liked her very much and feel like I'm in good hands. The only thing that bothered me was that the office staff let someone who was early for their appointment go in before me because I was doing paperwork (and I arrived early to do the paperwork). I was done with my paperwork 5 minutes later and had to wait 45 minutes for the person who had an appointment AFTER me to come out. They should have let me finish the paperwork in the room or just waited. Because of this I was late picking up my child. Not cool. My guess is the doctor prob doesn't even know they did that. We'll see what happens at my next visit.
She is a great endo. She listens to you and cares about what you have to say she doesn't just make decisions based on numbers - she uses her expertise and experience as well. With thyroid disorders you need a doctor that is on point to try to get you functioning properly and she is it.
Dr. Khalfin is very friendly, she listened to all my concerns.
She is wonderful. She takes her time and answers all my questions. I would highly recommend her!
Dr Khalfin is very nice and takes the time to understand the problem and explains the solutions.
Dr. Khaklin is the best!
The doctor was easy to talk to and actually listened. Didn't push unnecessary tests and medications as some doctors do. The only drawback with this appointment was that the receptionist was very rude and unprofessional, and that I had to wait for over an hour to be seen.
First time ever going to this doctors office..They made me feel like I have been a patient there for years!! the staff was welcoming and friendly. The doctor answered all my questions and I am confident I am in good hands!!
Dr Khalfin was very knowledgeable and very well spoken. She took the time to speak with us and explain what was going on with me and what needed to be done. We never felt rushed and we left there with a good understanding of what needs to be done
She is very nice, thorough and helpful!
Today I had a follow-up visit with Dr. Khalfin. She is wonderful! Even as a follow-up visit, she was as thorough as she was on my first visit. I love her.
Very caring and friendly
Execellent as usual! i am so happy I found her!
Dr Khalfin is just amazing, she goes above and beyond for her patients and is a phenomenal Physician.
Very attentive to my needs, took time to explain my condition, gave me materials to read, expert in her field! Personable, warm, caring physician! Never thought I woukd EVER say this about going to the doctor, but looking forward to my next doctor's visit the 1st time ever! So glad I found her!
Dr. Khalfin is a very warm, kind, paitient and intelligent doctor. I feel very happy that I choser her and completely comfortable around her. I am upset that i have a hyperactive thyroid and do not want to take medicine. Dr. Khalfin listens to your concerns and empathizes with you but is the voice of reason and in the end she makes you realize that you need to treat the problem in order to take good care of yourself. I feel like my health is in great hands. She never rushes you and is sweet, kind and compassionate and extremely intelligent. The receptionist is also sweet and efficient.
She is wonderful...made me feel like she really cared and spent a lot of time with me ...answered all my questions...look forward to an ongoing relationship with her treatment
Very quick and informative
All of her reviews were right on the money. She is thorough, professional, easy to talk to. I highly recommend her!!!
Dr. Khalfin was very thorough and extremely attentive. She spent plenty of time in the office and didn't rush. She answered all my questions and clarified things I didn't know.
excellent dr. listens to what you have to say. very understanding and patient w you.
Alla Khalfin was very down to earth and quite competent. Unlike other Drs in the past she was open to hear questions and basic conversation without rushing to end the visit and made me feel comfortable with the visit and my decision on choosing her as one of my Drs. The office secretary/receptionist was very nice and professional.
From the minute I met her I felt I was in good hands. I couldn't ask for a better doctor!
She was very thorough. She took her time explaining my options & I was able to get my blood work done same day since the lab was right upstairs. I look forward to my next visit, where she will have a better idea once blood work results are in & she will be able to diagnose me properly.
Phenomenal! Quite pleased.
Always a pleasure.
I find hter to be profssionl and pleasant She answers all my questions and takes her time.
Dr. Khalfin seemed very knowledgeable and listened to what I had to say. This was my first visit to see her. I left feeling like I was well taken care of.
She was great! Patient and a good listener. Took your opinion in consideration but applied her expertise. So hard to find a good Endo and she's great so I'm sticking with her!
Very nice and takes the time to listen and explain things to the patient. Very impressed, makes you feel like a person, not another number.
i had a great experience with Dr. Khalfin. I found her to be attentive , receptive to questions and thorough in her examination. She also responded very quickly when I left a voice mail on a Saturday requesting a call in for my prescription.
She was very thorough
She is AMAZING ! Dr. Khalfin took her time and gave me a comprehensive visit without rushing, which is refreshing ! Overall, I was very pleased with the medical plan that we worked on together. I would highly recommend her to others seeking an Endocrinologist.
Dr Alla is very knowledgable and understands her subject matter.
Great!!! Nothing more to say, Dr. Khalfin cares, listens and explains.
Dr Khalfin was understanding and listened to me at my first visit. She has a very compassionate personality and appears to be astute in her field of endocrinology.
Amazing Dr, really cares for her patients.
I have seen this doctor many times and she is sweet and easy to talk to.
Very nice and thorough! She put me at ease quickly!
This was my first visit. I really liked Dr. Khalfin. I felt comfortable with her and she was easy to communicate with. Dr. Khalfin was thorough and I did not feel rushed. I am going for some tests and have a follow up with her the end of next week.
Love talking to this lady she always put things into perspective n explain things every step of the way.
words cannot explain the ease n the comfort i felt finally meeting a professional who completely understood my issues. she was amazing from start to finish. I learnt so much about my struggles that for years no one even mentioned or explain... I thought the office was a little closer to home but the drive was well worth it....I have a follow up in a wk n i must say i'm so looking forward to it (very strange considering i never like going to my appts)
it's excellent she listen to me and understand my problem. She's great
Very nice professional and warm doctor. I am very particular about doctors since I was misdiagnosed for years when I had Lyme Disease. I am used to the best doctors in Néw York City. Dr Khalfin gets 5 stars from me.
Alla was a very knowledgeable doctor. She makes you comfortable and I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Khalfin was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable. She took the time to listen to all of my concerns and answer all of my many questions. After my consultation and examination, I feel confident that Dr. Khalfin will be able to help me in aspects that others have not.
