About Anita Khimani

“Because I said so.” isn’t a phrase Anita Khimani, family nurse practitioner uses with either her teenage children (ages 14 and 19) or her patients. “Often, a patient is prescribed a drug and told to take it with little or no instruction. “Because I said so” is not fair practice in dealing with patients - the better approach is to explain the “why” behind the prescription and then to work together to ensure the drug is doing the best job possible for the patient,” said Khimani. This philosophy of “education” is not limited to just prescriptions with Khimani. The ability to communicate with the patient, spending time, extending respect and creating a teamwork environment that joins both health care professional and patient together in a common goal of wellness are the cornerstones of Khimani’s practice. “It’s fascinating to sit down with a patient and make a baseline analysis. From there, we work together to set attainable goals, such as lower blood pressure or bringing down high cholesterol. We talk about our plan - what’s possible, what will be a challenge - and together, we create a roadmap of success that can happen only when we work together,” said Khimani. Khimani’s extensive background includes certifications as a registered nurse, a critical care registered nurse and family nurse practitioner. She holds degrees from Georgia State University and the Aga Khan School of Nursing in Pakistan. She is fluent in Urdu, Hindi and English and admittedly, knows a “smattering” of Spanish. She is married, the proud mother of teenagers and says her favorite activities are going to church with the whole family and currently, trying to teach her teens how to cook.

Tried to complete more tests than a required for a typical physical that may not have been covered by my insurance. Came in for renewal of anxiety meds and was almost not prescribed these due to miscommunication. Would not recommend thisfacility or FNP. The nurse was very nice and apologized for FNP’s behavior and the staff at the front desk were very kind.

Everyone in this office was extremely nice, clean, and professional. There were many people who could all do the same jobs which probably keeps wait time down, but the office was a little disorganized- asking if I’ve had a certain proceduredone already. To be fair I had a lot done in my visit.
