Dr khana and his staff are exceptional. He saved my life w an extensive and long surgery he thoroughly explained everything to me and my family regarding the procedure and possible outcomes. He came to see me every day during a 15 day stay at Chestnut Hill Hospital. He is warm and caring and concerned.

Never. This guy is a great salesman but not a good doctor. I was misdiagnosed based on minimal exams and Dr. Khanna recommended surgery. Scheduled the surgery and then his office cancelled it twice. Went to get a second opinion, and would suggest this for anyone going to Dr. Khanna because after more exams, the other hospital didn't find a hernia and were disturbed by Dr. Khanna's diagnosis.

Dr Khanna performed emergency surgery on my 78yo mother at Chestnut Hill Hospital. Dr Khanna was leaving the hospital for the evening when my mother presented and he stayed on with her and performed the surgery which lasted until after 9:30pm. He took time to explain in detail exactly what was going on and all the different scenarios. He was so patient and reassuring and made us all feel comfortable in a scary situation. He continued to follow her through out her 6 days in the hospital.
