I am extremely pleased with the care provided by Dr. Khary! I come in with a list of questions. She listens carefully, answers all my questions, and gives valuable feedback. As needed, she refers me for lab tests/scans and makes referrals for seeing specialists. Messages/questions I send on My Chart are promptly answered.

I wish I didn't have to go to other providers or locations to get further follow up on the issues I came in to ask about. In house ultrasound for this visit would have been a bonus! Now more time off work and schedule challenges with work life balance to get ultra sound and the other referrals that were given. No more one stop shopping sucks! But I realize this is just the way it has been. I'm thankful I am pretty healthy.

09/20/2017
this was with out doubt, one of the two worse office visits I have ever had. I was looking for a new PCP. the doctor made it very clear that she was not going to be able to take care of me. Additionally, the entire Providence system was requiring ridiculous concessions on me the patient.. It was a complete waste of time and sent me into an emotional spiral. [...]

Dr Khary is one of the best Providers. She is willing to listen to my concerns and makes referrals when needed. She also follows up with my e-mails and checks to make sure all necessary tests, colonoscopy, mammograms, bone density tests , etc have been completed!
100

08/18/2017
I like Dr. Khary because she orders a test to find out the problem - always f/u and I like that she just doesn't order medication for all cares. She also seems knowledgeable about the latest medical research.

Dr. Khary listened to me and didn't just take results and prescribe without considering my history or listening to my concerns.

07/04/2017
Seeing Dr. Khary is always a very helpful experience. My concern with this visit was that I experienced a marked change in well-being two days before I could get an appt. to come in to see her or anyone in the practice. It seems that such a large practice should include access to emergent/urgent visits part of each day.

06/27/2017
I wasn't asked about menopause or related symptoms, or any other age-related concerns, other than weight. If I don't bring it up, as with most doctors it seems, it is not discussed. One has to be one's own advocate with health.

Dr KHARY strongly encouraged me to have a colonoscopy which detected a dangerous polype. She has always given me good advice and support.

Dr. Khary is thorough, competent and helpful. After an emergency room visit to suture a cut to my finger I received a follow up call for an appointment (to remove the sutures in a week). I really appreciated YOUR follow up with me. I am very happy with the services that Dr. Khary provides. I very much appreciate her skill and education.

Dr. Khary is one of the best primary care physicians, she attends to my concerns in a professional, direct manor. I appreciate the time she takes while listening to my concerns, but more importantly she has always seemed more than qualified when it comes to directing my care. I have never been concerned with my physical and emotional care with her at the realm, directing my care. Thank you for employing such a devoted physician.

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

05/22/2017
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.

05/04/2017
She is "WONDER" full.
80

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.

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.

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.

02/12/2017
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.

THANK YOU FOR ALL WHO WORK IN THIS OFFICE

02/08/2017
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.

02/08/2017
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.
100

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.
90

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!

Good listener, sensitive, straightforward communicator
80

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.
100

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.

Dr. Khary is always caring, understanding, extremely knowledgeable on a wide array of health issues, and helpful. [...] And one of the things I like about Dr. Khary, in addition to her listening to my concerns without being unnecessarily judgmental, is that she never comes across as condescending in her approach. She treats me as an equal--even though she's the doctor! I like and respect her very much.
90

09/20/2016
Dr. Khary listens to my concerns, answer my questions, and refers me to specialists as needed. (Yes, I am one of those patients who walks in with a list of concerns/questions!) Although I see her only once a year for an annual exam, emails are promptly answered by her or other staff.
