The waiting time is a bother, especially if your the very first patient of the day, but Dr. Khan is verythorough during the examination. I continue to see her as my optalmogist not only, because her office is very near to where I live, but I trust her with my eye care.

Dr. Khan is excellent—-thorough and friendly. She is also very patient when explaining things to me —-even if I ask her more than once! Her medical assistants and office staff are very friendly also. I like that Dr. Khan usually has office hours on Saturdays—-very rare for a medical specialist in my long experience!

Wait time was way too long, when asked about the issue- was told that the long wait was normal. Dr was coughing into her hands and conducting eye exam without washing her hands. Simple manners people.

She works out of her home which I find ok but she needs to work on her cleanliness. She had allergies and an injured hand. I literally watched her cough and sneeze and then call me into her office for a consult and never washed her hands. She put a yellow drop of I believe iodine into my eyes all while not washing her hands. I felt ashamed to ask directly for her to do it so I instead asked if she had a cold then she said it was allergies then she used hand sanitizer. Plus they put another drop of something in the eyes to dialate the pupils so you have to leave there in dark glasses and I had to drive home hoping I could see properly. I left her office hoping that she didn't infect my eyes due to her lack of cleanliness and wishing I knew they would obscured my vision, I would not have driven to the appointment.

Waiting was long to see the doctor. The staff was okay, not friendly, but took care of me with the signing in right away. The doctor did her job doing the eye testing and assessment, but did not sit down and talk to me with me explaining her findings or ask if I had any questions. I had difficulty seeing the chart with and without glasses. I was very nervous to what was going on, but she did not discuss with me what was going on.When I asked she basically said that its of no concern. Over all, I would have liked the doctor to relate to me a person with concerns and talk with me so I could understand whats going on.

Dr. Khan is very friendly, personable, thorough and professional. Her calm, kind demeanor made me feel very at ease during my visits. She willing answered all of my questions and did not rush me when I felt resistant during a procedurr. Her office staff are equally professional, courteous and kind. Additionally, the office washroom (very important), waiting and examination rooms were clean and tidy. I highly recommend this Harvard educated doctor for your eye care needs hands down.

The receptionist was very friendly. I felt very comfortable talking with Dr Khan about my concerns. My only issue is that when I arrived I was the only patient there and had to wait 45 mins before I was seen. I arrive at 10:45 and finished at 1:00. The actual time spent with the assistant and Dr was about 15-20 mins. Most of my time was spent in the waiting area.

Horrible experience. Waited about an hour to be seen, they dilated my pupils and then I had to wait another 2 hours to see the doctor. As a result I was late to pick up my child from school because this appointment took so long. Never going to that place again.

Came in for an emergency visit after waking up with a red, irritated eye (possible conjunctivitis). My appointment wast at 11:30am. I had already pre filled forms on zocdoc but still decided to arrive early anyway. I signed whatever forms needed my signature and politely sat in the waiting area. 45 minutes later I was still sitting there waiting to be seen. I am an office manager at a medical practice so I unserstand how an office can run behind schedule. However, it irritated me that I could here the doctor & her assistant "socializing" while myself and several other patients were waiting. An hour later, the assiatant finally calls me into a room. She was pleasant but somewhat unprofessional as she had a mouth full of food & was trying to speak in between smacks. She abruptly left me sitting in the room to grab a drink to wash down whatever she was eating. She asked me to sit back in the waiting room to wait for the doctor. Another 1/2 hour passes and the doctor is MIA. More patients start coming in. Finally, the doctor appears from a doorway which I assumed led to the upsatirs portion of the house. (Yes the office is located in the lower level of a house). Another 10 minutes passes & the doctor calls me into the room. After a two minute exam she tells me I have what I suspected & gives me a prescription. All I needed was a prescription. I don't understand why it took over two hours for her to see me for two minutes. Had it not been an emergency I would've walked out long before I was seen.

Probably will not be going back as she appears to be a professional within a health care environment who does not wash or sanitize her hands before examining the patient.
