    I saw Professor Khan regarding a very specific and unusual issue related to his specialty. Pr. Khan listened very carefully to my concerns and answered every single one of my questions regardless of how basic they were. I never felt judged and as a matter of fact, he made me feel very comfortable and he made sure that I left the consultation without any further questions. Not only he took the time to answer, but he also explained where these answers were rooted in a vocabulary easy for me to understand which really helped me feel empowered as I am dealing with a complex issue. I was very impressed with his openness, kindness, and professionalism. Professor Khan goes above and beyond for his patients and I could not recommend him warmly enough.
