She takes your problems seriously and asks the right questions, all while keeping an upbeat mood. Talking with her was pleasant and helpful. I left in a very optimistic state of mind.
Dr. Khan is very knowledgeable in her area of expertise. She was extremely helpful and gave great advise.
Very caring doctor who took a lot of time getting to know me and seemed truly interested in me as an individual!
Great doctor. I just wish she would get an answering machine that works.
I am so thankful for Dr. Farkhanda Khan. I always feel better after talking with her. She has a very pleasant way of helping me see solutions to problems. I highly recommend Dr. Khan.
I have been seeing Dr. Khan for a few years now and find her to be an excellent psychiatrist and physician. Her background affords her treatments to be in depth and very useful beyond what I have experienced with others in her field. She is intelligent, kind, funny and genuinely knowledgeable. Constance
Dr. Khan answered all of our questions. She is kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. Dr. Khan truly cares about the whole person and total well-being of her patients.
So thankful for Dr. Khan's knowledge and expertise.
I am glad that I met with Dr. Farkhanda Khan. She is highly intelligent and personable. I felt better after my initial visit.
We were able to book an appointment with Dr. Farkhanda Khan right away. She treated us with dignity and respect. She took the time to ask question and fully understand our condition; she did not rush through our appointment at all. She was kind and patient as well as very knowledgeable. She made us feel comfortable in her presence and spoke to us in a professional yet easy to understand manner. She is not within our health plan but we do not mind paying out of pocket.
Dr. Khan was very professional and knowledgeable at the consultation today. She answered all of our questions and provided valuable insights regarding medical questions. I am very happy that we choose to see Dr. Khan. And, the office staff is very friendly and kind.
She actually took the time to listen to my problems and helped me without judgement. I appreciate that.
I thought Dr. Kahn was very good. She took the time to go over a full history, educated me on some of the side effects of my medication I wasn't aware of, and I did not feel rushed at all! I will see her again! Thank you, Dr. Kahn.
DR KHAN HAS THIS WAY OF MAKING YOU FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE...SHE ACTUALLY LISTENS AND REMEMBERED MY ISSUES WITHOUT HAVING TO LOOK AT MY CHART...HER STAFF IS KIND.
She is very patient and professional with an excellent bedside manner.
She was WONDERFUL She really listens to your needs and will help. She took her time and I feel I found a great fit for a Doctor and I Thank Jesus for her!!!!!!!!
Didn't know what to expect walking into the office. It was in a lovely area and the employees there really do care about your issues. They are great listeners, ask questions important to your health and they don't force you to try any medication you don't want to.
Very easy to talk to. Overall very nice person to work with.
Dr, Khan is very good at explaining drugs used in psychiatry & the benefits of food & exercise, She is also compassionate, knowledgable & sharing.
Overall; a great psychiatrist. Old fashioned and level headed Dr. Takes time to understand personal/family history and create the best solution for you. Didn't feel rushed in the appointment and she gave advice that was wildly useful and met my need. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Farkanda Kahn is a caring doctor and a genuinely nice person. I would never go to anyone else.
I HAD TO SWITCH PSYCHIATRISTS ABRUPTLY AND DR KHAN MADE THE TRANSITION PAINLESS. APPARENTLY, ACCORDING TO A NEW ZOCDOC POLICY, I AM UNABLE TO SPEAK FREELY AND CANDIDLY REGARDING SPECIFIC MEDICAL DIAGNOSES AND SUBSEQUENT FORM(S) OF TREATMENT. SO, LET'S JUST SAY HYPOTHETICALLY SPEAKING, IF A PERSON MAY HAVE ADD/OR/ADHD, AND WAS OKAY WITH BEING PRESCRIBED A MEDICATION WHICH IS THE MOST COMMONLY PRESCRIBED ADHD MEDICATION, THIS MAY BE A PSYCHIATRIST TO SERIOUSLY THINK ABOUT BECOMING A NEW PATIENT OF. I CANT TELL YOU THE COST FOR HER SERVICES, BUT I CAN TELL YOU THAT REGAINING FOCUS IN LAW SCHOOL IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. STUDENTS AND PROFESSIONALS WITH ADD/ADHD SHOULD GO AND GET HELP FROM DR FARKANDA KHAN, MD. ASAP. THANX 2 U DOC.
Doctor Khan is amazing. This was my first time ever making an appointment to see a psychiatrist. She was very thoughtful and didn't make me feel like I was a crazy person. I would highly recommend her to everyone.
Informative and pleasant.
Dr Khan is very knowledge. Her treatment practice helps to get at the root of the problem and she offers viable solutions. She is kind and actually cares about her patients. I have used may people in the health care filed and I have never had anyone help resolve my issues so completely as Dr Khan. She isn't quick fix like so many other health care professional. Over time she tries different methods until your problems are resolved. She works until you are symptom free and you don't find that in every health care worker. Most just get your feeling ok and leave it at that. I would recommend Dr Khan to any one and have so. Thanks again Dr Khan
I have been seeing Dr Khan for while now. I find her very kind and nonjudgmental. She listens and gives possible solutions to your problems, She is very knowledgeable about mediations which have help me immensely. My depression has improved greatly and I look forward to working with her in the future. I don't hesitate to recommend her to to friends and family
Excellent, caring DR
Dr. Khan is very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. The office is organized and appointments are easy to schedule. Highly recommend Dr. Khan for those looking for a psychiatrist in the area.
I had not been sleeping for three days due to insomnia. She prescribed me medications to help with anixiety and sleep. This helped me the first night I was able to relax and sleep all night. My own physcoligist could not see me for three months no help at all in emergencies. Dr. Kahn really seems to care about her paitience and helps them right away and gives numbers in case of emergcies. Thanks so much. Larry
Dr. khan is very professional and has a caring attitude. Throughout our interactions I could tell that she truly wants to make a positive impact and is always willing to listen. Highly recommended!
Dr. Khan is great! Her office Mgr. On the other hand was rude and would not even offer an apology after double booking and when i showed up took 1 hr over my sceduled time to see the Dr. I was also not happy to find the follw-up visit cost had increased by 50% from my last visit.
Very plesent, listens and helpful. I have my life back and i couldnt be happier :)
Dr. Khan was great and extremely helpful.
She has wonderful people skills. Listens and asks questions and is very thorough.
We were significantly disappointed with our visit. For some reason Dr. Khan seemed either intimidated or insecure. We chose to pay out of pocket thinking that a Dr. that didn't take insurance was because of her superior aptitude. We could not ha been more mistaken. We had to walk her through the process of what questions to ask in order to help drive which direction she should go. Although we understand the need for reference her very much worn PDR can give some assurance of wanting to increase her awareness of meds. However, not when not sure what to prescribe. To have a Psychiatrist recommend one search "Google" for therapeutic excersizes to treat anxiety and depression was the epitome of incompetence. We hoped she could suggest or recommend a therapist not an Internet search, especially when one could potentially land with a "quack's" treatment that could do more harm than good.
Dr Khan spent a long time listening to my problems and I think that the solutions she recommended are going to help me. I have spent a long time looking for someone like her. I couldn't be happier for the time I spent with her.
She is the best!!!!!
Awesome doctor! I'm so glad I finally went to see a psychiatrist. It's something I've been putting off for far too long. If I knew about Dr. Khan I would have gone a long time ago. She's caring, she listens, she doesn't make you feel awkward and she's easy to talk to and has a good sense of humor. Don't waste time and money on other doctors. She doesn't take insurance but her time is well worth the money. Dr. Khan's availability is great which is pleasantly surprising for such an awesome doctor. You don't sit and wait forever in her waiting room either. She values your time and doesn't treat you like a number. Thank you Dr. Khan!
Over the past couple of years Dr. Farkhanda Khan has always been willing to work with me to find the best care suited to my needs. Setting appointments are easy and her staff has done an excellent job of rescheduling when needed.
Great service! Great availability!
I appreciate Dr. Farkhanda Khan's gentle disposition and attentiveness while I was talking to her. I chose to make my appointment with her based on the favorable patient feedback that was so readily available on ZocDoc and I wasn't disappointed.
Easy to get an appointment and Dr. Khan is very approachable and on top of refills, etc.
I would have liked to go more into my thoughts and feelings but understand that is a different profession. It was a good visit and I hope the meds we discussed will make a difference. I would recommend.
Dr. Khan is very knowledgable in her field and took the time to really understand my situation and explore options for treatment. She also fully understands personal and meditative treatment methods as a supplemental or primary method of treatment. Even though payment was completely out of pocket, I feel it was worth every penny.
Excellent experience. The conversation was very much enjoyed.
She took the time to consider my thoughts and reactions to medication and appropriate changes were made. It's great to have input and a doctor who fully explains risks and benefits of each treatment option. She makes herself available for phone calls and overall, she has been instrumental in getting me back to work. Highly recommended!
Great service, excellent bedside manner. She does not accept any insurance so be sure you have out of network coverage or an FSA/HSA.
Very quick and effective she does not take insurance however with the over 30 or more days appoint times to see another Dr. that accepts insurance, miss khan is worth it. I was able to visit her 48 hrs after setting up my appointment. I will continue to use her as my Dr. In the future. Thanks
She listens, asks good probing questions, and genuinely sought to understand.
Dr. Farkhanda Khan was very thorough and really listened to my concerns and questions. I would highly recommend her. The front office staff was very professional and kind.
Dr. Khan is an extremely kind, caring, person. She kept my husband out of the hospital, which was extremely important to us. She took the time to listen and ask the right questions in order to find the proper diagnosis and medication. Dr. Kahn is easy to talk to and always answered our questions without making us feel like we were a bother to her. She answered her voicemail in a timely manner when we had a situation that needed to be addressed, which was very comforting. We would highly recommend her to anyone. Also, she isn't covered under our insurance, yet we would continue to see her. I think that really says something about her as a professional!
Excellent service, outstanding knowledge and comfortable arrangements.
Dr. Khan is great. Well worth the money. She takes her time and really listens. She is very thorough. I felt like she was really making an effort to get to know me and my condition. She is friendly and caring and I can tell she is committed to helping patients. She isn't all about throwing pills at the problem - she talks it out with you and gives advice. Would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. khan took a more holistic approach and recommended dietary changes in addition to medication for my symptoms.
She allowed me to talk about my issue. She asked very direct and relevant questions. She was truly concerned with moving towards solutions.
She was very professional, attentive, understanding and really took the time to listen.
I liked Dr. Khan, she was very personable. It is not easy trying to find a new doctor so I was happy that it worked out.
Reliable, professional, and courteous.
She is an excellent doctor willing to listen to my problem and suggested a remedy. She allowed me to speak free and ask questions to facilitate the conversation.
I loved her from day one and now I see her when I have issues. She counsels and she cares.
I was very impressed
I have been going to her for a few years now and she really works with you. She lots of degrees and knows what she is doing. I fully trust her, and I absolutely recommend her as well.
Dr. Khan is a caring, great listener who provides sound cousel. She has helped me manage my feelings throughout a difficult period in my life.
She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable! Look forward to follow up appointment!
She is always willing to assist. She never gives up, and will try different approaches that best suit patients. In emergencies she offers some help but leaves it up to the hospitals to diagnose and assist. She listens and is pretty helpful. I just wish she knew more about various medications and did not have to consult her manual every time I come in. Some research would go a long way when giving advice on medicine.
I've been seeing Farkhanda for a year now and her & her staff are always polite and helpful. I have no reason to look elsewhere for services!
she's excellent and a very nice doctor.
Wonderful experience. I trust her.
Dr. Khan conducts herself very professionally, at the same time she has warm and empathetic demeanor. I felt she was listening (as opposed to just "hearing") and was able to relate to what I was saying. She seemed to have a genuine interest in my well-being.
She took the time to listen and was very personable. Not uptight like you would expect from most medical specialists.
Dr. Khan is very kind, bright and personable. She took my concerns seriously and prescribed medications that worked. She spent a lot of time with me.
Dr. Khan was great, I would reclmmend her.
The Dr. was very accomadating and genuinly care about my medical and psychiatric needs. She speant the whole hour with me and made me feel comfortable in talking about my issues. She really makes sure your treatment plan is based on your entire health needs. She takes the time to make sure that you are on the best treatment plan available.
She always listens to my concerns and is willing to work with me.
I really liked Dr khan. She was a very sweet caring dr. She listened and took into account my previous drs methods and moved her schedule around to accommodate us and make us feel comfortable. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Khan.
She is simply the best doctor that I have ever had prescribe for me. I have not been as comfortable in any appointment that I've ever had with a Psychiatrist. I can truthfully say Dr. Khan is my favorite doc today.
Made an appointment with Dr. Khan on the same day! Boy, did I need it...she was SO great! She really took the time to spend with me answering all my questions and giving me really good advice, etc. I didn't feel rushed at all and I felt like she really cared about me and my situation. The office staff was friendly and welcoming. I will definitely return to see her should I need to in the future :-)
An expert in her field, very helpful and kind.
I found Dr. Khahn online here on zocdoc and was able to get a full psychiatric consult for 11am next day. She was pleasant, understanding, knowledgeable, and capable. She spent the entire hour trying to get to know me and my issues She really knows how to work with people who are suffering or scared, and she took my ideas and wants into account when making treatment decisions. She has an open outlook and an open mind. She is definitely my new Psychiatrist.
