Very efficient, educational and overall pleasant!
I went to Dr. Khaykis for my first colonoscopy and it went extremely well. I found the doctor to be very knowledgable and open to questions and I had no side-effects from the procedure what so ever. I was a bit apprehensive about the whole thing and even tried one of those mail-in stool tests before hand, in an attempt to put it off before finding this doctor, but that returned a false positive, which Dr. Khaykis explained was not uncommon. In retrospect, I wish I had just gone to Dr. Khaykis in the first place.
I arrived early and they took me right away. Dr. Khaykis is so thorough and kind and really listens to everything you tell her... I would recommend her to everyone I know!
I love Dr. Khaykis and highly recommend her. She is extremely thorough, compassionate, caring and always makes you feel as though you are the only patient she has. In addition, I have had both colonoscopy and endoscopy procedures performed by her and they were far easier than when performed by another GI doctor previously. I recommended her to my boyfriend who had been delaying for years going to a GI doctor and getting a colonoscopy. He also loved her and went ahead with the procedure. He said it was "nothing" and plans to return to Dr. Khaykis for any further GI treatment.
She was very helpful. I was seen after 10 minutes. She was sure to be thorough in asking me questions and trying to figure out my issue.
The office was the most organized and friendly I've ever encountered.
She was super friendly, very thorough, and had good bedside manner. I'd highly recommend.
Dr Khaykis is the best!
Extremely informative and seemed like she really cared about my condition and wanted to do everything she could to make me feel better!
She was great. Took the time to explain everything to me. She also called me right away with test results which was very much appreciated.
I thought doctor Khaykis was amazing, even though this was my first visit she treated like I've been coming to her for years. She was so nice, encouraging and she just listened. This was a great experience, I felt like I was being heard and not being judged like some doctors make you feel. I'm so glad to have had this experience with her.
Outstanding. I recommended a friend who has an appt 11-8.
Dr. Inessa Khaykis is a very caring doctor. She gives me her full attention and listens to what I have to say. She is professional, caring, courteous and respectful.
Great very thorough. I feel like she has my best interest
Dr. Inessa Khaykis, a gastroenterologist, is an excellent doctor in my opinion. She seemed to genuinely care about my health situation. She gave me good advice about prepping for colonoscopy and afterwards patiently answered all my questions re my health and colonoscopy. Two doctors had highly recommended her and I was glad I chose her to perform the procedure.
The doctor was nice enough, but seemed quite busy. My appointment was at 5:20 and she didn't walk into the room until 6:20. Her phone rang during the appointment and her assistant came in part of the way through the appointment to ask her a series of questions.
Number one in her specialty!!
Miss Khaykis was very friendly and helpful. She made me feel that I could count on her to take care of my medical problems.
I found everyone in the practice to be patient & kind, as well as helpful. Also no wait time. That's rare!
She's wonderful! Really friendly and knows what she's talking about.
Doctor is very kind, takes time to explain you important details regarding your health, and I didn't wait in the waiting room.

Dr. Khaykis is outstanding both personally and professionally.
First time patient, she listened carefully took the time to ask many questions I felt comfortable and she wanted to address what was causing me the most discomfort first
Needing to travel the next day, Dr Khaykis was understanding and ordered appropriate tests the same day. She also said she would call me in the evening with any results.
Dr. Khaykis is warm, professional and always checks my chart before she sees me. Therefore, she remembers where we left off! i booked a colonoscopy with her and she was accomodating and gave me good instructions.
the appointment was very thorough, and the instruction for the future procedure very clear. She seems like a very competent physician with an excellent bedside manner.
Zero respect for patient's time.
I've seen her before and was very satisfied with the results, hence I go to her for my checkups. She's very thorough and knowledgeable in addition to her friendly treatment, which makes the visit more pleasant.

Love her!!!!! Knowledgeable and a personable professional.
great! everyone was very nice.
Dr. Khaykis was incredible! She was incredibly personable and comforting. I tend to be a bit of a hypochondriac and get nervous about anything re: my health that is outside of the norm. Dr. Khaykis arrested many of my fears while patiently listening to all of my concerns. She came up with a plan of action for us to address my concerns as well as next steps. And, unlike the last gastroenterologist that I saw, she was culturally competent. I highly recommend her!
Very pleased with Dr. Khaykis and her team. For a procedure that is uncomfortable and daunting, she was incredibly kind, comforting, and professional. I would recommend her to all my family and friends.
Dr Khaykis is an excellent doctor that will spend as much time with you as you need and is an outstanding doctor.
My first appointment with this doctor, and everything went well. Dr Khaykis was very thorough, attentive and I liked her personality a lot. Wait was minimal. Doctor's assistants were sweet and attentive too.
I was referred to Doctor Khaykis by my primary provider, her colleague of a group medical practice. It was very easy to get an appointment via Zoc Doc only two days after the referral. Dr. Khaykis's front desk staff were very warm, professional and organized (particularly the young lady with glasses, whose name escapes me at the moment). The doctor herself was in turn very easy to talk to, attentive and clearly explained next steps. So, I had a very good experience at every turn and would recommend this doctor!
Excellent professional and caring physician.
I work with her so I know of her repertoire with the patients and my other co workers. They tell me she is excellent. I see how she treats patients and even with me she will discuss the assessment and then draw out a plan. When something doesn't work she continues to find something better for you. Excellent Doctor! Very efficient!
Amazing office and staff. Everyone is friendly and accommodating. Dr. Khaykis is one of the most professional and helpful doctors I've encountered, I'm glad I found her. Recommended her to a few friends already.
Dr. Khaykis is a great doctor who cares about the needs and feelings of her patients. She is kind, patient, and focuses her attention on you and any issues you may be facing. She is available, professional, and aware of current trends and I trust her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
Professional, caring and dedicated Doctor.
A fine and compassionate physician. Brilliant and kind.
Dr. Khaykis is outstanding. She is kind and compassionate but moreover, a notable expert in her field. I highly recommend her!!!
I loved the doctor and would definitely recommend her. However, I had the second appointment of the day, and still waited 30 min. I wish doctors would realize their patient's time is just as important as their time.
The visit was great. She had good bedside manner. I didn't feel like I was being rushed. She explained everything throughly.
Several years ago, I was referred to Dr Khaykis by my gastroenterologist for a specific procedure. I was very satisfied with my experience at that time. Recently, when my gastroenterologist retired, I decided to see Dr Khaykis. This visit was an initial consultation to begin our relationship. I found Dr. Khaykis again to be attentive, thorough, reassuring and knowledgeable. We decided it was time for me to scheduled an endoscopy in September and a colonoscopy in November or December.
Dr. Khaykis is very professional and caring with excellent listening skills. She takes the time to clearly explain both diagnostic and prescribed treatment.
Dr. Khaykis is wonderful.
An excellent doctor in every way.
Fantastic. So complete in all she does. Not a bad word to say. She goes above and beyond. Excellent doctor.
I think that she is very knowledgable, her demeanor is professional yet relaxed. I felt safe with her, and she will be able to cure me of my coughing issues. I have more confidence. Her bedside manner is definitely amazing. I'd recommend her to anyone, and have tried to do so already.
Outstanding. Very thorough. Very knowledgable. Attentive and addresses all concerns and questions. I will be returning to this doctor!
Dr. Khaykis is an ultimate professional. She dedicates lots of time to hear out her patients and formulate treatment plan. The endoscopy she performed on me went flawlessly. Her staff is polite and helpful.

Does not rush the appointment, takes time to listen and find the best solution. Very courteous office staff.
Very nice Dr answer all my question and concern
Office staff was very friendly. Dr. Khaykis was also friendly and very informative. She listened to whatever concerns and or questions I had then made sure I understood everything before leaving the office.
Kinda weird also being in the office of a psychiatrist but other than that, great!
This was my first appointment with Dr. Khaykis. The office is extremely professional and very efficient - and we had a very good meeting. I anticipate future treatment to go very well.
I saw Dr. Khaykis a few years ago - and only stopped seeing her due to changes in my insurance coverage. I am excited to finally see Dr. Khaykis again. She is knowledgeable and attentive. She listened and did not make me feel rushed in the slightest. She wasn't dismissive of my symptoms and was more concerned with running tests and getting to the root of the problem. I've had a lot of doctors rush to prescribe me one medication after another without focusing on the cause of the issues, so I found this incredibly refreshing. Dr. Khaykis had excellent bedside manner and was extremely thorough, going through my entire medical history (as competent, professional doctors do). I look forward to resuming treatment with Dr. Khaykis as soon as possible.
She was wonderful ! Very pleasant, intelligent and helpful.
Intelligent and competent staff adds to the comfort of the office visit. Dr. Khaykis is easy to talk with and conveys a feeling that you have made the right choice in having her as your physician.
I thought she was fantastic. Made me feel totally comfortable and gave me hope that we would find a solution to my issue.
She was wonderful!
Dr. Khaykis was good to talk to. She arrived late but was very apologetic. I was happy with her approach but found that I would like her to be more responsive to emails/phone calls between visits.
Professional and efficient office. Doctor took time to review information.
I waited for about 40 minutes, but the doctor was very straightforward and made me feel comfortable-- even had a good sense of humor and was considerate about fears about coverage/medical bills.
She took the time to address all of my concerns and outline all of my options. Made me comfortable about an uncomfortable illness. I highly recommend.
Great bedside manner, very knowledgable!
I liked her! I liked her a lot! But, after she recommended surgery (after just talking), I then got a call that it had to be rescheduled because of the water going out in the facility. And since it was scheduled over my vacation to begin with, I haven't done. So, while I biefly liked her, my schedule was changed due to totally weird New York Stuff, and I have no idea if her capabilities are solid.
Ah-mazing. Highly recommend her for her profesionalism, warmness and kindness. Excellent ingredients for a wonderful doctor!
best doctor, highly recommend
This was my first visit. Dr. Khaykis was very attentive to my cocnerns and unserstood my medical history.

I am very glad I found her. I was able to get into her office immediately regarding what I considered an emergency. My colonoscopy and endoscopy were scheduled within a week of me meting with her. Aside from the anesthesiologist who I had to dismiss for a more qualified one, she did her job. Very knowledgeable and compassionate. I would highly recommend her.
She is very helpful and took time to listen and explain my conditions to me. She also has a very pleasant attitude.
i love this doctor so goood

Dr. Khaykis is great, but the wait can be a awhile if you get a mid day appointment. If you are in a rush try to get an early appointment.
