About Dr. Khan

Philosophy of care

It’s important for me to get close to a patient. You need to be able to express your concerns to me freely. I treat every patient as I would a member of my family. That’s the hallmark of my patient-centered care.

Why I entered medicine

As a small child, I went along to a lot of doctor appointments and saw how kindly physicians treated my family members. I’ve always had an interest in science and, as I got older, those experiences seemed to come back to me. Now I enjoy helping people in the same way.

Community involvement

We have a local community center in my area and I’ve gone down there to help out with community elections, with people having insurance difficulties, and with different educational events for people in need. I just enjoy helping out where I can. It’s my way of giving back for all the good things I’ve experienced in my life.

Personal interests

Family time is really important to me, whether it’s traveling or just staying home to watch a movie. Even getting the chance to go for walks is something special.

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.
