      Dr. Khan exceeded my expectation, he had excellent patient doctor communication skills, he advised me on the best course, and his top notch skills allowed him to perform an additional procedure for me during my surgery. I healed nicely and my follow up was quick and easy since he did such a good job. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone and would really like it if he could take care of my sister but unfortunately she lives in Florida. Thanks Dr. Kahn for everything!!!
      in Hudson, MA |
      Dr Kahn was on time, knowledgeable, personable and provided a surgical experience that was incredibly positive with a speedy recovery. On day 3 post op, I walked 0.5 miles and by day 5 we were back to walking 3.0 miles per day including hills. Laprascopic beats open anyday. Highly recommend Dr Kahn.
      Dr Khan saved my life. From the moment I met him in the emergency room it was clear that he was the surgeon for me. His surgical skills and medical knowledge is only surpassed by his kindness and personality.
      in Belmont, MA |
      Very knowledgeable, confident, and took the time with me when I needed answers to questions (which is ever so rare these days!).
      Ayer, MA |
      Fast, relatively painless surgical experience.
      in Marlborough, MA |
      Dr. Khan is a caring and knowledgeable surgeon who explains things clearly, and has a great bedside manner
      in Acton, MA |
      Dr. Kahn carefully explained the surgical procedure and post operative expectations for my Inguinal Hernia repair. He was also pro active in contacting me during my rehab on NY Eve with a reaction which I developed to the pain medication. Outstanding medically skilled professional with a caring, efficient and professional support staff.
      in Harvard, MA |
      Dr. Khan is very competent and easy to deal with. The hernia surgery went well. He made every effort to allow me to go home without a catheter (which I did not need when I got home.) Recovery was quick (despite my being 70 years old). His office staff had a cancellation and my surgery was less than a week after my initial office consultation (amazing). He answered all my questions and concerns at the follow-up visit about 2 weeks after the surgery.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
