I have only seen Dr. Khary twice. However, I am impressed with her thoughtful answers to all my questions. She brought up some good points to consider and questions to ask my insurance provider. During my visit, she even checked CDC recommendations for pneumonia vaccines to see whether they had changed. (They had just been updated.) In the past year I have sent Dr. Khary several emails, which have been answered in a timely manner.

Dr Khary is fabulous! She is very sensitive to her patients needs and is usually right on time.

She then spent a good amount of time with me, making sure my needs were met.

One of the referral suggested during visit was almost impossible to make, almost 2 weeks later was finally able to make an apt with another in network specialist.

I love this provider, but I am not able to see her when I need. As a matter of fact I switched to a different doctor from the same practice, so I would be able to see the same person every time, but it is still not possible - the appointments are booked 2 weeks ahead and this does not work for a primary care provider. i get a different doctor from the practice every time I need to be seen and I am not happy about it. It has been like that for years - I don't see the reason to have a primary care doctor if I can't see them.

Care from provider (backup for my regular PCP) was EXCELLENT. However making phone app't VERY UNACCEPTABLE; Called first at 11:45am for app't; got voice mail (figured at lunch); phoned back 3 more time each hour & still got voicemail. When finally made connection about 3;15, mentioned that must be very busy since no call back received in 4 hours; reply "oh no, we've not been that busy!!" What happened to repeated messages requesting call back during that time? This is definitely NOT the type of response I've gotten in past...but someone sure seems to have dropped the ball on this go-around!!!

For this visit I The MA exam was brief, to the point and helpful. I enjoyed her personality and concern about my health. Upon completion of the MA exam I waited in the exam room for 43 minutes. The MA came in three times to apologize for the delay from the provider. This is unacceptable. There was no rationale for the extreme delay. I saw the provider for less than 9 minutes once she came in. She was courteous and validated my health concerns. This was appreciated. The prescriptions took 40 minutes to be faxed to the pharmacy where I had to wait for that time plus the additional time to fill the prescriptions. Of note the provider and I waled into the building at the same time for my appointment.
