My care provider is excellent. I have recommended her to several friends. She is a great listener and respects my interest in natual treatments and healing. I don't mind waiting a bit in the exam room as I know she is giving someone else her undivided attention just as she will when she is with me.

Dr Khary is fabulous! She is very sensitive to her patients needs and is usually right on time. This past visit I did have to wait 30 minutes in the exam room to see her, but she was very apologetic when she came in and explained the situation. She then spent a good amount of time with me, making sure my needs were met.

Results from recommended tests have not been reported to me even after two phone calls to Dr. Khary's office. I requested that the results be posted to MyChart and also called Providence Hospital where the test was conducted on [...] to confirm that the results were sent and additionally faxed direct to Dr. Khary's office. The testing technician suggested that results would be sent on [...] or [...] at the latest. As of today, [...] I have no results, but have been assured the results were sent from Providence.

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. Don't know for sure which end is at fault but after repeated calls and called back to providers's office the referral was sent and able to make an apt w/in a few minutes.

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.

I am very happy with my provider, and I have been going to her for many years. The only complaint I really have is that every time I come in to see this provider, the wait times are excessive. Arriving a few minutes early does not help. Recently I waited almost an hour before they called my name.

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.

l did not have a person from the office get back to me on my test results. I received my results on line which was fine. in the past if there is something they are concerned with they contact me directly. I had a physical on my last visit and Dr. Khary spent time with me that ?I felt she was truly interested and we discussed many things that in the past with other providers we would not have gotten this much time. it was a very enjoyable experience.
