My doctor is great. How long it took for me to get from making an appointment for a consult about sleep apnea to the time I actually got the CPAP was far too long. It took 3 months. Other clinics are faster.

I came to have a consult with Dr. Khwaja expecting to walk away with the gear to evaluate my possible sleep apnea. I waited a month for this appointment only to be told I need to wait another week or two in order to get the equipment needed. there has to be a way to shorten the time it takes to get this part of the process done. We knew what I was there for and more than likely knew I would need equipment or a stay. Is it possible the office could have been ready to send me to one of a couple options in order to shorten the timeline? 6 weeks just for an evaluation is one of the failures our medical systems are facing. it should take that long. I can't think of any good reason for the length of time waiting. maybe you could explain why and things might be different for me but until then this is much too long of a wait.

I waited at the front desk for a receptionist to appear for 10-15 mins to check in. Finally someone came to the nearby desk, but did not acknowledge me standing there. I had to ask if I could check in, and then she assisted me. I was then told by the person who took me to the exam room that I checked in just in time to avoid a late arrival fee. I couldn't believe they were under the impression that I had arrived late, when in truth there was noone at the front desk to check me in.

She seems very knowledgeable in her very narrow field of practice. Her interventions seem appropriate and within standard of care parameters. I have an ongoing frustration with the inefficient manner that she manages medication prescribing however. My primary medication was listed with incorrect dose which I corrected online in pre-registration. Unfortunately I was told that does not carry into my actual medical record; so it was still incorrect when nursing reviewed medications with me. At that time I was told it was corrected. However it was again incorrect on my discharge summary which even stated it was verified during my appointment! While this MAY seem insignificant; Dr Khwaja also often forgets to enter her scripts and so covering providers must write interim orders. Multiple times this has been the case for me and they prescribed the dose listed in the record despite this not being the correct amount. In my opinion; this should not be happening!

she is a knowledgeable, kind doctor. there was a mistake with a dx, report and then sent to ins co. this caused delays and unnecessary treatment for me to go through. I have completed the ins hurdles and now I can go for the right tests. I felt the team did not listen to me when the mistake happened. they did not return calls or take it seriously for months. they now.

Actually I don't think they were prepared for the visit.. they didn't have any information on my past test. Very nice and polite but couldn't answer my questions nor took the time to check the equipment that I was told to bring in. I was told I needed new equipment and a new test.

I did have a bad experience for my original appointment date. I was supposed to have my appointment at 8:15 a.m, and due to weather conditions they had a two hour delay. I did not receive a call or message, so I showed up and nobody was there.

Dr. Khwaja was very personable, while still being professional. She SEEMED to be very knowledgeable about her specialty. She also seemed very up to DATE. Everything she told me was very understandable -- if something was too technical, she immediately translated to lay terms I could understand.

I had a very positive experience on this visit. All my questions were answered fully and a very reasonable plan for assessing my possible health issue was developed. Dr. Khwaja was very pleasant and thorough in her questioning as well as in her explanation of her plan for my evaluation. As a physician she deserves the very highest marks possible in my book.

Every single visit w/Khwaja the MA reviews my current meds. But does not listen & always prints wrong meds & doses.

Nothing about the staff at the front desk comes to mind; it was positive. My husband and I are both patients of this provider. She exhibits deep concern and benevolence toward us, always. In the years I have been her patient, she has never wavered from meeting my needs in a brilliant and timely manner. This last visit was no different.

I waited in the waiting room for about 15 minutes then I waited in the room for about 15 minutes before the doctor came in .After seeing the doctor she did not explain that her MA would be coming in to set up arrangements for me to get the equipment for my home sleep study. I waited in the room for the MA to come back for probably 20 minutes when she came in she didn't act like she knew what I was waiting for. when I explained it then she did the paperwork but let me know that I had to come back on another day to get the equipment I needed bring it home do the sleep study at home and then turn around and bring it back the next day. I live in [location deleted] Oregon and this Clinic is in Gresham, so that's an awful lot of going back and forth. it just seemed like the left hand didn't know what the right hand was supposed to be doing very disappointing.

Dr. Khwaja is an excellent physician who listens carefully. She has supported and treated a frustrating issue I have with very good results. She responds quickly when I communicate through MyChart. She advises both on lifestyle and Rx for an ideal outcome. I would highly recommend her to family and friends and I have referred one person to her.

My visit was totally pleasurable. My appointment was made within a very reasonable time frame, my wait time was as per scheduled, the staff was friendly & helpful. My Dr was familiar with my situation & remembered me. She had my medical records for reference. She listened to all my inquiries & answered all my questions. Her recommendations were alone the lines I felt I needed & she set up a future appointment to review my situation. I was very pleased with my entire office experience. She listened to my concerns & addressed my issues. It is always a pleasure to be treated by her, I feel she listens & explains all my questions & has my best interest in mind.
