I found Dr Khwaja and her staff to be very professional and helpful. I visited her on a referral from my primary doctor and was related to a specific concern that I have. Dr Khwaja provided a very detailed explanation related to my concern and answered all the questions I had. I look forward to working with her on the next steps in my treatment.

If all physicians listened, processed and responded as well as Dr. Khwaja the world would be a far healthier place.

The question about discussing medication is poorly written. I have only seen or talked with a provider once in the last three months, we reviewed the medication at the visit. everyone was very nice at the clinic.

The doctor seemed knowledgeable, but as is common across the board in Western medicine, I'm usually waiting at least 10-15 minutes past my appointment time, just to feel like their internal timer has started, and there is not a mindful approach to fully understanding what we're trying to figure out together. It felt rushed.

the most frustrating thing about this office is that there is absolutely NO help to be offered on any issue outside an appointment and physical visit. I've tried emailing questions through MyHeath online and leaving phone messages, but the email received no response in months and the calls are only returned 1/4 of the time or so, it takes at least a week, and the callers only tell me I have to make an appointment to get my questions answered, even if there is no change to my health and a quick email reply would have done the trick and saved us all a lot of hassle. The office visits are lightning quick, for better or worse, 5 - 10 mins tops. I guess this wouldn't be a bad thing if they were productive, but beacause of doctor oversights it takes many repeat visits to just get a single (non medical) issue fully addressed as it should have been from the start. Basically anything that happens in the office occurs in a black hole, with no communication or documentation through proper channels. It is truly maddening as a patient, as these are factors I cannot control or even help to move along. This office is just extremely unreliable.

My visit during was excellent. I really liked my doctor. However, trying to get in to see her was frustrating. I called and they told me that I needed a referral. My doctor faxed the referral that same day or the very next day. I called back and they said they needed my insurance information. I gave that to them and they said they would call me back. I called the following week and they told me they did not hear back from my insurance. I called my insurance and they told ME that I was covered. I called back and they told me that they needed to hear it from them. I called back the following week and told them again that I was covered and that I had not heard back from anyone to get an appointment. Finally, a lady (she had not taken my phone call in the past) listened to what I said and she said she would get back with me that same day after calling my insurance and she was true to her promise. Then finally i got an appointment to see the doctor. It was very difficult to get in to be seen.

Everyone in the office from clerks to nurse to doctor were very helpful. I was seen after only a short wait and during visit had my questions and concerns addressed in thoughtful and personalized way. I am, however, very frustrated with process and difficulties with routine medication refills. At this visit she forgot to order one medication despite me specifically identifying my need for it. Over the last three refill requests; two others were problematic. Once she forgot to order it; and when finally written by covering provider; it was for the wrong dosage. Medication refill is a frustrating recurrent problem for me at this office; but otherwise very happy with my care here.

This is NOT my regular medical provider, so not all the questions were really applicable to me. This was merely a referral for my sleep apnea.

I had the appointment set up to see the specialist. When I arrived at the office for my appointment, I was told she was busy and I would be seeing an assistant. Considering the health issues I have, that was unacceptable to be. I would have had to come back for another doctors visit and delayed my treatment for a further period of time. If the doctor was too busy to see me, I should have been contacted and asked to reschedule. I was told in the paperwork that if I did not show up or was late getting there, I could be denied treatment with them and would have to seek assistance elsewhere. I insisted on seeing the physician and was allowed to do so. I think communication should be made to the patient as a courtesy to them. I realize doctors are very busy people and I would not have insisted except for the fact that I have had some recent serious and possibly life threatening medical issues. My appointment was made several weeks in advance so there was ample time for me to be contacted.

I really like this Dr. I see while Dr. Tate was out. I was concerned seeing someone different. but she was awesome. I thought her knowledge was her friendliness was just awesome she act like she knew me all along I felt comfortable talking to her she listened to everything I was saying and she gave me some advice on different things and overall it was a very good appointment if I was over in the Mount Hood area I would definitely see her and I would definitely refer her to anybody over in that area it would be nice if she came over to the Tualatin area I mean I like dr. Tate she's pretty awesome too but if I can see dr. Tate I would love to see her so make sure you keep her she's good

After seeing this provider it was recommended that I get a sleep study done. When the clinic called to schedule the "at home study" I was assured that it was pre approved by my insurance. I completed the study but now I've recieved a bill from Legacy for the "diagnostic" saying that insurance did not cover it. GRRRRR

The initial clinician immediately thought I needed a CPAP machine and measured me for it. I had insomnia, not apnea. The doctors that Dr. Khwaja referred me to never did respond to my phone messages nor was their address one that I could physically find. Her office did call and got a response, but I never did. I believe I do not suffer from insomnia any longer.

I am [age deleted] years old and although it was just a short one time visit regarding a possible sleep study I was so very impressed with Dr. Khwaja.

And according to all I could tell she was very knowledgable in her field (never had this type of treatment :). Please pass this on to her!!! I liked her immediately!!
