She graduated with high honors in science and psychology from the Portland State University Honors Program, and earned her medical degree at Oregon Health & Science University.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Easy to talk with and quick to understand my problem and to offer a course of further inquiry about my problem.

I began as a new patient with Dr. Khary in February of 2016. As a new patient I found her to be clear, methodical, informed, and attentive. She was specific about what I should do to improve my health. now I have had a second physical visit and an issue which had to be dealt with. she was excellent in lol situations. Seems I have known her longer than 3 visits.

Dr. Khary seemed bored, distracted, even fatigued. She was, however, responsive and helpful.

She is "WONDER" full.

05/03/2017
I like my Doctor as professional I think that she should know more about medical care. I would like for her to answer my medical questions without sending me to other providers. I also liked her assistant she was a great help and I would think that Prov. would allow her to stay with this doctor. I have seen so many come and go and she was the best, I do not remember her name but, I did recommended her to Doc.

Since I am so healthy for my age she does not order many tests. She seems more interested in saving the hospital money.

Dr. Khary is a wonderful physician! I appreciate her attention and respect!
 

03/29/2017
I love Dr. Khary! I definitely trust her with my care. I do not like, however, that when I messaged her questions they were answered incompletely by another provider. Additionally, I had a question earlier this year that one of the nurses tried to answer over the phone and she was exceedingly rude when I didn't understand what she was trying to tell me.
 

03/22/2017
Dr. Khary demonstrated trust in my request for restart of physical therapy on old injury areas.
 

03/16/2017
Really appreciated Dr. Khary for new patient visit. Personable, knowledgeable, respectful, did not feel rushed, attentive to all my concerns. Professional and pleasant conversation, with an appreciated personal touch. Assistants and staff were great, too.

Always feel Dr. Khary listens to my problems and concerns.

I think Dr. Khary is excellent. Listens closely, well. Refers as needed. Excellent manner, very professional, but not cold.

This was my first visit with Dr. Khary and I look forward to a good relationship with her as my PCP. I have been asea since Dr. [...] retired and the 3 doctors that I did visit in her old practice were less than satisfactory. I'm happy to have been rferred to Dr. Khary.

Obtaining the referral was very good. However, It took two weeks for the referral to be approved. [...] I had to call several times before learning it was approved. Dr Khary and wanted me to call dr. the same day she referred me. I did, but they could not schedule me until they had received the referral. Dr. Khary's office was wonderful in that once approved, they faxed the approved referral over. The referred to dr. literally had to have it in hand.

I communicated primarily by the website. I had to request my full blood work results. this was my first visit with the provider. not being completely satisfied I am researching to find a different provider. I completed the pre appointment information work online but apparently it didn't load. I felt the provider was more interested in doing computer input than in me as a new patient. As I was new I was quite surprised I didn't receive a full examination of the type my old doctor would give me yearly. the provider checked throat, ears and took bp and had blood drawn. that was all.

This is the usual office I go to for care - but this was not my usual doctor that I always see. I was very disappointed with the care I received from this doctor. I'm sorry to say that she did not make me feel comfortable or that she was interested in anything about me. I felt that I was a bother to her. As I have always gotten excellent care with Providence this rather upset me.

02/08/2017
I'm very pleased with my PCP. She listens well, is extremely thorough and direct/clear in her communication. Address on one referral was out of date (changed several years ago) so I went to the wrong location. Another referral sent me to the wrong doctor and location.

02/08/2017
I arrived 10 minutes early as requested to checkin fill out forms, was called back to exam room just prior to my 3:40 appt. Vitals taken, left in exam room for almost 30 minutes before being seen. Well beyond my apt time almost 30 minutes (actually 28 min). Need to have on time go both ways for the us and the office, otherwise will show up 30 minutes late too!

This was my first visit with Dr. Khary, as my previous Internist of 20+ years had retired. I was somewhat apprehensive on finding a new doctor. Dr. Khary's professionalism, sense of humor, and thorough approach has taken care of any trepidation that I had.

12/21/2016
My provider seemed very knowledgeable about a variety of medical concerns, and was very interested in my overall health, my only complaint - and I think we'll iron this out with time - was that she wasn't much of a "people person." I left feeling I had been interrogated about my health history and even the things I was sure about - like my insurance deductible - she made me feel I must have been mistaken about. It was my first time to see this provider and I think with a few more visits we will get along better.

12/12/2016
Dr. Khary has always been helpful and when she cannot help me she refers me to another doctor - I appreciate her honesty.

During this appointment, we discussed multiple areas of potential concern or treatment, and I did not feel hurried or limited to single issue coverage as has sometimes occurred with other providers in the past. I really appreciated this.
