Very pleased with my experience with Dr. Khan today! Scheduled an appointment with her almost one year after getting diagnosed with Hashimoto’s but not really getting any answers. I went there prepared with my own independent research I haddone on this condition as well as my insulin resistance and asked copious questions! I found her to be collaborative, informative and very patient in explaining ways to get my health on track. What really struck me is how she relayed her own personal health experience in helping me find my own path. For once it felt like I wasn’t alone. Very much looking forward to the lab results and even more valuable information about my health.

Dr. Khan was kind and professional, asked lots of good questions, and clearly took my concerns seriously. It’s not easy to find a doctor who doesn’t seem rushed and barely interested these days and Dr. Khan was neither. Office was also very clean and staff was friendly. Highly recommend!
