21/04/14 5 4 5 5 Dr. Khalidi is by far the BEST specialist I have ever dealt with. He is very knowledgeable, caring and personable. Even though he may be a little late for appointments (what specialist isn't?!) he is very apologetic which is unheard of in my experience. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a good rheumatologist.

07/08/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Khalidi and his team of doctors are wonderful. I am very lucky to have been referred to him. If it wasn't for Dr. Khalidi, I don't think I would have been diagnosed with Lupus(SLE) as quickly as I was. My treatment has been phenomenal.  Respond

24/09/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Khalidi is beyond words wonderful. So are his fellows and staff. They seem oblivious to how much they affect patients with their positive attitudes and reassurance and their modesty, as a team and as individuals, shows they have more to think about than themselves. I love this guy. And his little dogs too.  Respond

27/08/10 5 4 5 5 All staff are amazingly friendly and competent from the receptionist to the doctors! The RN suggested my friend and I get a bite to eat before carrying on with my appointment, as it was lengthy and had been over the lunch hour! Dr Khalidi and a visiting professor from France were knowledgeable, kind and had a sense of humour as well! I would not hesitate to recommend them all to anyone, especially vasculitis patients!  Respond

07/08/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Khalidi is an excellant doctor. He takes the time to explain what is going on with your condition. He is very thorough on reviewing any tests that were done and shares the results with you. He staff like working for him and that shows in how they treat you. I've never had to wait for him, he's waited for me! The dogs are harmless. Not a problem!  Respond

11/07/10 2 2 2 4 Knowledgeable doctor with zero bedside manner. No interest in speaking about 'anything' outside your primary condition - even if directly associated. His narrow approach to patient health might work for some - but when most have 'several' associated conditions (e.g. psoriasis, fibro, depression, side-effects of meds). As a result, we had to seek additional medical help - after learning this, he is mean to Mom about it every time she goes. We've called his office 3 separate times in crisis - as in needing URGENT care. I was told to go to Emerg. Please know that there isn't a lot Emerg can do for you. Mom once spent 3 weeks in hospital due to her condition - he WORKS in the bldg, didn't come to see her once. He also was terribly mean to her about being over-weight. She's slightly overweight because she's DISABLED. The people you treat are DISABLED. How dare you be rude? Don't snicker or mock. You sir, you should be ashamed. Vulnerable and scared people come to you for HELP. Pfft.  Respond

05/07/10 5 4 5 5 This man is my gaurdian angel. He is by far the most amazing doctor I have ever seen and I've seen ALOT! His staff is extremely nice, I just have to make a call if I have any questions and I'll have an answer by the end of the day. My disease has never been this well under control and it's all thanks to him. I drive over 2 hours just to see him. I trust him with my life.  Respond

26/01/10 4 4 5 5 Dr Khalidi was very helpful in communicating the risks factors in my disease and helping me understand how to control symptoms without the use of heavy meds. As for the dogs in the office - I think that it's kind of nice that they are there. They are quiet and don't smell (the first time I thought they were fake).  Respond

16/07/09 5 4 5 5 I think this doctor is the greatest. Who has a dog in their office? Lots of people do. His dogs do not cause any disturbance with patients -- they are pretty much happy to stay in the waiting area, and they're extremely well mannered. Dr. K's manner is gentle, compassionate, and reassuring. I'd be dead, literally, without him.  Respond

17/06/09 1 1 1 1 Dr. khalidi, is very rude, ignorant, and who the hell has a DOG in their office. Not very clean. He is never on time, doesn't care and makes people into his test rats.....he has no bedside manner. His staff is never around when you need to make an appointment or cancel one. And I can't believe he is still practicing. And if you go DON'T park in his parking lot...I have nothing but problems ever since I saw him and he injected me with some medicine which was suppose to help. Thanks Dr. Khalidi should retire or go back to school!  Respond

23/10/08 5 4 5 5 Dr. Khalidi is absolutely an incredible, wonderful, compassionate, knowledgeable doctor. After three years of up and down problems with my health and not understanding why I wasn't getting better I switched doctors to be under his care and he finally gave me a full diagnosis and started treating ALL my illnesses. He has been unfailingly kind and supportive. He takes the time to explain things to me and considers my opinion of how I'm doing. He encourages me to listen to my body, that I know it better than anyone. I am so grateful that he is my doctor. Thank-you Dr. Khalidi for your truly exceptional care.  Respond

29/05/08 4 5 5 5 Nader Khalidi is top-notch. He really cares about you and will treat you and get whatever government papers are necessary etc.... Sometimes he is hard to get in to see, and man alive, I wish he had a practice with parking, but other than that he is great!! I love how he talks to me at a medical level rather than a child. I took some classes and he is always willing to share info and talk the talk. Fun Visits.  Respond

24/03/07 3 5 5 What an amazing doctor. I was referred to him because I suffered alot of arm and shoulder pain on the left side. I'm in my mid-forties and after several x-rays and an ultrasound, he advised me that I had "frozen shoulder". I liked that he wasn't willing to guess what my condition was without arranging x-rays and ultrasound first. He may typically run a little behind in his appts. but he is great and the girls in the office are wonderful. This man is professsional and thorough and so good at what he does, I no longer have to see him. Great physician and specialist.  Respond

02/03/07 3 5 5 Knowledgeable, compassionate, accessable, and friendly. Anyone, with arthritis who is frustrated with the care they are getting elsewhere should see this physician. On second thought, don't; I don't want him to become any busier.I didn't have anyone take my complaints of constant pain very seriously, until I saw this doctor. He has helped me tremendously and continues to do so. He didn't just see me once and send me back to my GP, he continues to monitor my condition. He is terrific.  Respond

20/02/07 4 5 5 Dr.Khalidi is an exceptional human being. He has phoned our home concerned about my husband's health. Our own family physician has been informed that if my husband is experiencing any painful joint problems he will see him. Dr. Khalidi arranged for many tests and x-rays to be done. Hospital technicians and fellow physicians respect him. You are certainly in "quality care" when you see him. An assisstant (intern?) is usually with him and Dr. Khalidi explains the procedure to be done and allows the intern to it until his careful supervision. Thank you, Dr. Khalidi for your professionalism.  Respond

11/02/07 4 5 5 All I can say is that I started going to this R.A. specialist just over a few years ago now & if it wasn`t for this gentleman I probably wouldn`t be walking today. This Dr. got me on the right medication. He is great...the BEST!!! Thank you so much Dr. Khalidi for giving me my life back...without you I wouldn`t have been able to return back to the workforce. I feel like a new person. Thank you...thank you...thank you!!!!!  Respond
