DR. Khandhar is the best he really cares for his patience as though they are family members. My experience was the best experience I ever had at a doctors office, I felt comfortable and relaxed. For me it was as though I was sitting with ine of my family members who are doctors. The staff is amazing from front desk to the doctor. I have never been to a doctors office where the entire staff are so pleasant and kind. They treat you like you are apart of their team! He is amazing and really explained to me what I was facing and how everything was going to be. He called me the night before surgery checking on me, I have not met a doctor who does that. Dr. K we need more doctors like you, please start holding classes. May God continues to keep you, your family and your entire team covered ! Bless all of you for you dedication, passion, and Love you put into your work! Thank you for letting God use you and thank you for giving me new life!!!!!
Dr. Khandhar correctly diagnosed my lung tumor as a slow growing carcinoid. The tumor was located in a spot that required removal of half of my left lung. Because Dr. Khandhar was able to do the surgery using a non-invasive, laparoscopic method, I had less pain . I was able to return to my regular activities ( including golfing ) in less than a month after surgery. Over, I found Dr. Khandhar to be a compassionate, skilled surgeon.
DR. Khandhar is a brilliant surgeon who saved my live from lung cancer! That says it all!
Personable, knowledgeable, excellent communicating in level understood by patients
He is fabulous he takes his time and addresses all of your concerns and answers all your questions and language that you can understand.
Dr. K is the best. I told him that God blessed him a great mind and great hands.
