As soon as Dr. Khumalo walked in, there was a very personable and friendly vibe. He is very positive, professional, and trustworthy. I would recommend him first thing to anyone who is looking for a PCP.
Dr. Khumalo was very attentive. He wanted to know from my perspective how I was doing and feeling. Seems to want the best for his patients.
Very good Dr. Will make my perm Dr now. Thank you
This was my first visit with Dr. Khumalo, I've recently had surgery and went for follow up. He was very friendly and allowed me to let him know how I felt I was doing. I tend to avoid doctors but he was great. The staff was also professional and friendly.
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. Lo and behold, after 4+ months and previous apmts, my right lung has pneumonia. Pretty simple. Thanks, Dr Khumalo.
I love Doc K. He listed intently and not only offered medical guidance, but personal insight.
Dr. K is the man
Dr. Khumalo was very friendly and understanding.
Great, but too early to say. I need more visits to make a better determination.
Dr. Khumalo was wonderful. He made me like he had known me for year's.
Very nice very professional. Highly recommended.
Dr. Khumalo is a sincere, personable, caring doctor. I liked meeting him and his staff very much. Excellent experience. I didn't not only wait, they took me EARLY, as I arrived 15 min. early. Wonderful!
Very professional as well as the staff. Offered alternatives to medication, love that since I would prefer not to take a lot of meds.
Dr. Khumalo was very thorough and made me feel very comfortable.
Excellent. All questions were answered and was not rushed.
Dr K is the man. Always ready with articulate conversation, and cares about his patients. Great Doctor.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
I've been going to this clinic for two years now and even though we moved twenty miles away I still keep coming back. The attention they pay me and my family every visit is so rare with doctor's offices these days. If you want a professional, friendly, knowledgeable staff who cares, go to doctor Khumalo's office.
Great new patient visit. Very kind and thorough.
Very professional and nice, went in just to refill a prescription and got blood work done as well on his suggestion. Clearly cares about patients and keeping them in good health rather than just getting them done as quickly as possible.
The doctor is amazing, just wish the staff lived up to his name.
I always see a different doctor when I go, the doctor made me uncomfortable a few times.
Very helpful, knowledgeable, and kind!
Best ever! Very knowledgeable
He was a very attenive Dr.
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 set up an appointment with a PT. I feel great today! He was super professional and the nurses and his staff was very helpful.
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 if she was having a rough day or if she was homophobic.
He was very nice, and knowledgeable. I had to get blood drawn, and it was literally painless. Great staff all around.
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 exactly my 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.
Really awesome experience and super happy to finally say I've found my primary care! He listened carefully to my symptoms, told me why my body is reacting the way it is, and exactly what to expect while on the new medication. Will definitely be back! Also, if you're a new patient show up 20-30 minutes before hand. I showed up at 4:10 was seen by 4:25 and my appt was at 4:30 !
I enjoy this office especially when Kara is at the front desk
He is very friendly and is willing to listen. He appears to really care about his patients.
Dr. K is awesome. I really like the staff, and feel like Dr K and I are building a positive doctor patient relationship. The Medical Assistant (whose name escapes me) is great as well.
The treatment I got from the doctor and MA outweighed the ridiculous wait time I had to see the doctor. Overall, a good visit, but I hope they don't always have wait times like I experienced.
Horrible!!!!! PA had no clue what she was doing. Never will go back. Will also file complaint with medical board over her lack of knowledge and risking patient life
The PA was wonderful! She was very kind and listened to everything and helped me out immensley.
Dr. Khumalo is absolutely wonderful. He is kind and caring. His staff is exactly the same. They always apologize when there is a delay.
Dr K's office is always pleasant to go to. Usually with minimal wait and above standard care. He and his providers take the time to get to know their patients.
Was unaware that this was an Urgent Care clinic. After relocating across country, I have struggled to find a primary care provider to continue with the same prescriptions I've used for the past 5-10 years. I scheduled through ZocDoc with this provider only for prescription refills. Finding time away from work is difficult, but I took hours off work and waited 45 minutes past my appointment time just to receive 1 months worth of prescriptions. Total waste of time. This may be great if you need an urgent care due to illness, but I felt mislead and extremely disappointed. I asked for a referral to someone who could evaluate me and write my continuous prescriptions, just to have the nurse say she would contact me by phone as soon as she found a reference that takes my insurance. My insurance plan is a Classic PPO.... this visit was pointless.
I booked an appointment for 4pm and sat in the room until after 5pm. I finally went out and found a nurse and was told that the PA was running behind but I was next. I didn't see the PA until 5:30 and I didn't get out of the office until nearly 6pm. Dr. Khumalo isn't great but it's almost impossible to see him anymore and the wait times are getting ridiculous. As much as I would love to keep coming here, I can't burn two hours of my day waiting around for them to catch up.
This was my first visit and the staff and doctor were very kind and helpful. I would %100 recommend this office.
One of the best doctors and best doctors offices I've been to in a LONG time. I have "difficult veins" and it always takes peoples 3+ attempts to get blood. Not at this office! She got it on the first try, I was so impressed, and she was SO super careful about everything, even checked with some other people to make sure she was going for the right vein, and her care really helped. I just love this office.
I saw Chris and he was wonderful. Very knowledgeable and very caring.
Very kind staff. Very kind doctor. Quick and very knowledgeable. Appreciate them
Short wait, online appointments, friendly staff
Looking forward to seeing him again!
Dr Khumalo was great, he answered all of our questions and was very helpful in his diagnosis. I would recommend seeing him as a primary care doctor.
I met with Chris, who works for this office but is a PA, and he was fantastic. I love that this office is inside an Urgent Care! I went in as a new patient, but I had fallen the night before and hurt myself... they were able to take x-rays while I was there! It's so great to know I can have an x-ray done, or bloodwork, right there in the office! It's also located around a number of other medical practices, so any physical therapy, dental work, etc. can all be done right in the same area.
Excellent first visit. Very professional and caring !
Great! Took time to explain things. Blood work for labs done right in the office, huge time saver!
Great visit! I had what I thought to be silly symptoms. But they were very thorough be checked everything. Everyone was friendly and I didn't feel rushed or like I was unimportant.
Very happy. Would recommend to friends and family. Got appt same day. Labs drawn right there in the office, that's a huge time saver for me, I don't have to make another stop.
Dr.Khumalo was understanding,thoughtful,and listen to me instead of past doctors who dictated how it was going to be. I appreciated his opinion and would refer him in the future.
I liked that he was very to the point, no beating around the bush and ready to address any and all issues. As this was my first time in the office it took longer than I had anticipated, but I truly believe my next appt will go much quicker.
He provided great information and listened to my concerns.
Very nice. Took time to talk to me and answer questions. Great doctor.
The doctor was very friendly. He took care of what I needed. I was able to make the appointment the same day.
Comfortable environment. Wait time was minimal. Staff was extraordinarily friendly. Doctor Khumalo was very courteous, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend to my family and friends.
Dr. Khumalo was great. I did not feel like I was just the next in line to be seen. He's very friendly, understanding and actually listens to your concerns. I've had some bad experiences with PCP's and I finally feel like I've found one that I can trust and feel good about.
Dr Khumalo was genuinely interested in what my concerns were, not judgmental at all and eager to help resolve my health issues. I will be gladly making Dr Khumalo my PCP from now on for any health issues.
Dr. Khumalo and his staff are fantastic! They make you feel at ease and the Dr. takes time to listen to your concerns. You are not rushed. The office and exam rooms are always neat and clean as well. Highly recommend!!!!
Seen Dr. Matthew khumalo. Very good doc made me feel 100% comfortable and great attitude.. Great
Great care from doctor and staff and also a Clean office
I really saw a genuine dr that wants you to get better in health
Absolutely honest, listened and gave honest heartfelt thoughts about treatment. Staff very friendly and professional. Victor is awesome!!! I have found a new home in this Doc!!
It went great!
M. Kumalo rocks! He is so nice, and really knows what he's doing.
I will be going back to him from now until he changes cities or I move to a different city.
Will return for any GP needs I have in the future.
The visit wasn't the issue. The allergic reaction I had to the medication I was given was. They had no phone number for an answering service or an alternative doctor for matters that were not life threatening but definitely needed an answer. The side effect I was having advised to call my doctor ASAP. My only option was to leave a message in the general mailbox that might be answered in 24-48 hours. Very disappointed.
I enjoy dr k he is really nice and cool
I think that Dr. Khumalo was very easy going, and the first doctor i actually liked. You can talk with him and he listens . Thank you !
