Since 9/2010, Dr. Khor shares her time between the VAMC and the University of Utah Hospital and Healthcare, where she is now the Medical Director of Preventive Cardiology and Cardiac Rehabilitation. Her new administrative project is collaborating with the Utah Diabetes and Endocrinology Center to build a comprehensive multi-disciplinary Cardio-metabolic Risk Reduction Program (Care-Met) to support Therapeutic Lifestyle Modification of cardiovascular risk factors.

Dr. Khor and her Irish husband have been married for 12 years and have three children aged 4, 6, and 10. As a result of a nomadic childhood, Dr. Khor is a native English-speaker who is also fluent in Portuguese, French, and Spanish. Her hobbies include growing saffron, cooking, eating, skiing, and mountain-biking. She is passionate about the beautiful out-doors, sharing and preserving it with her family, and local gastronomy (including the fresh eggs from her backyard chickens).

would have liked the instructions in writing

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!

February 17, 2014

good

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).

January 27, 2014

Its repetitive but the staff and doctors are the very best

August 27, 2013

Dr. Khor always instills confidence in me as her patient. She helps me understand completely what I need to do and why. I trust her medical skills completely.

August 22, 2013

Dr. Khor is a very pleasant person.

July 16, 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.

June 06, 2013

Love Dr Lillian Khorr, She is amazing and helped me understand about my health issues. Explained things so I could understand.

May 14, 2013

I could not have asked for a better office visit. I love Dr. Khor

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.

January 16, 2013

mY VISIT WITH THE DR. SEEM QUICK. I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE TO VOICE ALL MY QUESTION TO HER

January 08, 2013

Both the doctor and nurse practitioner were friendly, informative, and personable.

November 16, 2012

The provider even pointed out to me some side effects of my medication that my prior cardiologist did not.

September 30, 2012

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.

August 06, 2012

Best care and compassion I've ever received from Health providers.

July 10, 2012

Dr Kohr was great. I'm looking forward to having her oversee my cardiac care.

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!!

April 03, 2012

I have already recommended all of you several times so far and will continue to do so!

March 13, 2012

Doctor was exceptional in communication with me and in the information she provided. She answered my questions thoroughly and was not turned off by my many questions.

February 03, 2012

I receive outstanding care. I wouldn't go to anyone else.
