Ratings for Dr. Shafaat U. Khan
Very courteous and professional doctor . Understand problems and gives ample time . Sometimes gets busy, but most of time he is welcoming . Pick up phone calls by himself after office hours and never gets annoyed even I called him late night . Staff just OK but need to be more professional .
Just became a patient and am not impressed. My first visit was a flop. I had to reschedule becasue I waited for over an hour to be seen. Waiting room was PACKED with ppl and clearly overbooked. The two girls behind the desk might as well walked off the streets and sat dwn to wrk, so unprofessional and they seemed annoyed the whole time I was there. Needless to say I went bk two days later and was seen by the Dr who was actaully very nice, attentive and seemed to be thorough. I have two teenagers(girls) and they were a littel creeped out by him.lol.. I am now in the process of looking for a female Dr somewhere. I wouldn't the ofc the staff (women in the front) make the whole practice seem incompetent. I mean they are the first faces we see, why not make them nice and friendly?!
The doctor is very good. My daughter has been seeing him for almost 2 years now. She will let him take care of her without any problem. He is very good. When you call after hours I thought I would get a nurse on call but no he answered the phone. It was realy nice. I would tell anybody to go to him for there child because I think he is that good.
My children have been cared for by Dr. Khan for 4 years. He is an excellent doctor who always takes the time to explain information thoroughly and in a timely fashion. Referrals are done immediately and if I ever need a fax, it is sent within the hour. I've been to several pediatricians and can not find the care or service the way he provides it. His staff is also very attentive, friendly and helpful.
We just saw Dr. Kahn today for my son's 2 year well check. It was just a routine visit, nothing complicated, but he seemed competent and was very nice. It was very important to us that our doctor be supportive of full term breastfeeding, our right to make decisions regarding vaccines and that he be informed about the proper care of an intact male. He met those expectations and I feel confident about our decision to continue on with his practice.
He is my daughter's pcp. everytime she is sic an i bring her to see him he always tells me its just a virus and it will go away by itself. she got sick a couple of weeks ago and i took her to the er. they admitted her because she wasnt eating or drinking anything. she was hooked up to an iv for 5 days. he came in to see her and told me he wanted to send her home when she hadn't been eating or drinking for days. we would have been right back in the er in a day due to dehydration if i would have let him discharge her. when i asked for a second opinion he said he wouldnt call for a consult and if we wanted one we would have to find a new pediatrician. te new dr came to see her and gave her a new medication and she was eating and drinking two days later. he is rude and doesnt think parents have any idea what we're talking about even though we are the ones who know our kids best. would not recommend anyone to his practice!!!!
he was not my listed pediatrian but was sent to my room after delivery at the hospital, and I couldn't understand a thing he said. He ordered another blood test for the next day, but some how the paperwork he gave me was wrong and I spent a trip back up to the hospital for nothing because they couldn't do the test, they told me to contact him and get another slip for the test, but I decided not to fool with the whole thing and just go and see my orginal doctor
