would have liked the instructions in writingUofU Patient April 14, 2014
Dr. Khor is excellent. She always makes me feel as if I'm her only patient that day; answering all of my questions and spending time explaining anything new or different to me. I will miss her while she's in Malaysia but will be the first in line to see her when she returns!UofU Patient February 17, 2014
goodUofU Patient February 01, 2014
She was very late and offered no apology. In addition, it was quite evident that she had not reviewed my medical record, likely because she was delayed, because we reviewed my history is real time (on the fly).UofU Patient January 27, 2014
Its repetitive but the staff and doctors are the very bestUofU Patient August 27, 2013

Dr. Khor is a fantastic physician. She always spend quality time with me to explain what's happening and she stays on top of everything. I seriously feel so grateful to have her as my cardiologist.UofU Patient June 06, 2013
Love Dr Lillian Khorr, She is amazing and helped me understand about my health issues. Explained things so I could understand.UofU Patient May 14, 2013
Dr. Kohr is not Mother's usual Cardiologist, we were seeing her on a follow-up to an ER visit. She was very nice and thorough, and I felt a little guilty saying we would be seeing our regular Dr. in future. If not for our long term relationship with Dr. Freedman, I would be pleased to have Dr. Kohr on our cases.UofU Patient May 14, 2013
I could not have asked for a better office visit. I love Dr. KhorUofU Patient January 16, 2013

Dr. Khor is the most caring doctor I have ever had. She is professional, kind, caring and has helped me turn my life around. I have extreme confidence in her. I wish we had a lot more doctors like her. Dr. Khor is a great asset to the U of U hospital staff.UofU Patient August 06, 2012

Dr Kohr was great. I'm looking forward to having her oversee my cardiac care.UofU Patient June 05, 2012
My new doctor was extraordinary. She talked with me in a way that allowed me to understand what was happening and what needed to be done. She was clear and compassionate. She went over my instructions twice in a very orderly way that helped me to remember them and understand them. Thank you! Best visit with a doctor I have ever had. I truly appreciate the level of concern and compassion. To have a doctor and staff who truly have good caring hearts taking care of me and others with problems with our physical hearts is amazing. I believe you can't get any better than that!!UofU Patient April 03, 2012
