About Dr. Khalighi

Philosophy of care

I want to be able to deliver the best possible care to you in the most effective way. I emphasize preventive medicine – especially dietary and lifestyle changes – as the initial step for treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease and other related complications.

Why I entered medicine

I chose to become a physician because I can help people and help alleviate their pain and suffering as much as possible.

Community involvement

I volunteered extensively during my undergraduate trainings in hospitals and clinics in California. Here in the Lehigh Valley, I serve as member of Bahá’í faith spiritual assemblies in Bethlehem and Bethlehem Township. In the last 23 years, I have volunteered as a teacher, educator and lecturer in the Lehigh Valley community. Throughout my career, I have mentored students across many levels, from high school and pre-med students to students in medical school and medical residents.

Personal interests

I enjoy walking, jogging, spending time with family and friends, and participating in community and volunteer activities.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
