Dr. Khanna has excellent bedside manners and he listens. He goes out of his way to assist his patients. He is honest with his patients if he has to make referral.

-  Patient

Dr. Khanna is extremely knowledgeable and caring. In my opinion he is the best ENT doctor in NOVA. He listens to his patients, recommends treatments and then reviews all other alternatives. It is a comfortable feeling to know that your doctor is always there for you and Dr. Khanna is! Dr. Khanna also has staff who are caring and responsive.

Outstanding friendly doctor and staff. He was very friendly and didn’t rush me at all. Everything is digital. The appointment scheduling and patient forms. They have coffee and chocolate. Couldn’t be a better experience.

I came in with an unending sore throat, and was in to see the Doctor and left with a diagnosis in record time. Dr. Khanna and his staff were professional and efficient. I will definitely come back if I have any other sinus issues and highly recommend.

- S.S.

My visit with Dr.Khanna was nothing short of amazing! His bedside manner was excellent and he took the time to explain everything in detail. I love the fact there was a CT scanner in office so I didn't have to leave and then come back for another appointment everything was looked at my first visit. I recommend him and his office to everyone!!!

- B.L.

I have been to several ENT Dr's throughout the country and this is by far my favorite office! The paperwork for new patients was done online (very simple even if you aren't tech savvy) so you don't have to show up early to fill everything out. They got me right into the examination room. The staff was amazing and making sure you are comfortable. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. Dr. Khanna took his time to explain everything in depth, using visuals to help me understand what he was seeing and saying. He didn't just throw around a bunch of big words that I didn't know. I will be traveling to from NY to DC to go here for all ENT issues. This is how impressed I was with their professional service. I highly highly highly recommend this office!
