This was my 3rd visit to a doctor over the last few months for cough, cold and pain on my right side. I described my issue, he displayed his expertise, and arrived at the fact I needed a chest x-ray. Loand behold, after 4+ months and previous apmts, my right lung has pneumonia. Pretty simple. Thanks, Dr Khumalo.

Wonderful, caring Doctor. The office staff and the women who walked me back to office for care could improve her bedside manner. She was short, no eye contact and rolled her eyes when reviewing my medical history. I was unsure ifshe was having a rough day or if she was homophobic.

I came to Dr. Khumalo because I needed a referral to see a physical therapist for my back injury. He was very to the point and told me what I should do. He gave me medication to feel better and setup an appointment with a PT. I feel great today! He was super professional and the nurses and his staff was very helpful.

I was very impressed with my visit to Dr. Khumalo. It was my first visit to this office and didn't know what to expect, but both he and everyone else in the office were wonderful. I was taken back at exactlymy appointed time and did not have to wait more than 5 minutes to see the doctor. This in itself was a real plus, as anyone who's had to sit for hours in a waiting room while in pain can attest. Dr. Khumalo's attitude was compassionate and upbeat, he seemed willing to take whatever time was necessary to hear and address my concerns and lay out a course of action. I would have no qualms whatsoever recommending Desert Palm Family Health to my friends and family.
