My father had a follow up on his thyroid, it was acting up and she put him on a new medication and told him he had high blood pressure to see his primary. He went there as told, that doctor put him on hbp medicine. This caused his thyroid to act even worse. Dr. Khan said, and even told his primary she would not up his thyroid medication because he isn't taking it right, so now he is stuck with these issues. My father takes his medication on a daily basis and even has an alarm set on his phone so he takes it at the same time every day. Needless to say he is looking for a new endocrinologist.
Absolutely terrible. First of all, the office staff NEVER answered the phone. I called 5 times a day for 4 days and left 2 messages, and besides not answering the phone, no one ever called me back. I had to go to the office itself to make the appointment. Second, Dr. Khan saw me instead of the doctor that my cardiologist referred me to, for reasons I still don't know. I asked the office why I couldn't see Dr. Embar and they wouldn't give me a direct answer. My appt. was at 10 a.m., didn't see Dr. Khan until close to 12,, the waiting room was virtually empty, except for 3 people. Third, when Dr. Khan saw me, she didn't order any lab work at all, she felt my neck and my abdomen, and that was it. She basically said (not these exact words) "you're fat and you need to lose weight, and once you do that, everything will be fine. (She also said) the way you do that is by writing down everything you eat and count calories on everything you eat, and eat no more than a 1,000 calories a day, which doesn't sound like a lot, but it really is. Do I need to lose weight? Yes. Am I losing my hair because I'm heavy? No. Something else is going on. She made no effort to figure it out. For all she knows, I could have a tumor. I will NEVER go back to that office. I'm telling my friends not to go to Dr. Khan, and now I'm telling you. I sure hope you found this helpful.
I love Dr. Khan. I've seen her for several years now. She's always so friendly and supportive. I feel very safe and confident with her managing my diabetes. The wait to see her is quite long, but I understand that as she always takes all the time I need with me and I'm sure she does with all her patients.
Went for two appts. Told me I was basically lying about what side affects I was experiencing from the insulin. I felt humiliated and depressed that no one is willing to say, "It isn't just you, many have problems taking these meds." I feel like no one cares if I live or die. Would not recommend her to anyone.
