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.

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 tendsto 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!
