I needed surgery to correct a inguinal hernia. I am 75 years old. Dr Kahn was the surgeon. Pre surgery information from his surgical staff made me well prepared for the surgery. I entered the operating room at 10:00 AM. The surgery was completed without complications in approximately one hour and I was home eating lunch by 1:00 PM. I experienced no pain and required no post operation pain medication. From this patient's perspective, Dr Kahn and his surgical team were outstanding in all respects.

I recently found out I would need a colectomy to remove a large polyp. As a stroke survivor, I was petrified at the very idea of surgery. Dr Atif Khan quickly relieved my fears by taking the time to explain patiently and clearly the issues involved. He was able to remove the entire tumor laparoscopically although my paralyzed arm made a laparoscopic surgery harder, yet he did it because it would allow me a faster and easier healing.Dr Khan is caring surgeon who was fully focused on my care!

If I had to experience another Gallbladder removal surgical procedure, I would not look to anyone else in the General Surgery field other than Dr. Kahn. He thoroughly explains every step in his plan to make you feel right again. Thank you Dr. Kahn...in my opinion, he's highly skilled, honest, professional, and he's also a down to earth guy with a pretty good sense of humor.

I visited Dr. Kahn for the first time several months ago. It was a first visit ever for treatment of hemorrhoids, and I was experiencing a painful flare up. The office staff was fine, but not only was Dr. Kahn somewhat terse and impatient with me as I tried to have an actual conversation with him about my overall history, his treatment \ examination was frankly painful and horribly impersonal, I'll spare you the finer details. I now refuse to see this provider.

I arrived in the Emergency Room and needed surgery. Dr Kahn was on call – he explained what needed to be done. The surgery was performed and the recovery time was started. The incision healed well – I was up and about with minimal pain in 2 days – the wait for my bowels to wake up was a different story. All during the process Dr Kahn gave me straight answers to my questions and told me what to expect. In the end my recovery was exactly as he predicted.

My experience with Dr. Khan was great. He was extremely responsive, informative, patient and very tolerant of nervous family members. He was very kind to my worrying daughters.

Dr. Kahn made me feel at ease straight away. In fact his manner was so engaging that I felt I should wait to submit my review to see if, indeed, his personality could be, somehow, a reflection of his expertise. It was. He operated at the end of November, 2015. My recovery was surprisingly quick, my pain [from radiation-induced adhesions and, by chance, appendicitis] was gone and has remained so. It is now May of 2017. Every day I thank my lucky stars I met this man. Thanks, Dr. Kahn.

I recently had surgery conducted by Dr. Khan for dual-hernia repair. When I first met with Dr. Khan he explained very clearly what would take place before, during, and after he surgery. A few weeks later Dr.Khan and his team performed the successful surgery and I am now in week three getting stronger every day. No one likes surgery, but I would strongly recommend considering Dr. Khan if faced with surgery. He is very straightforward and professional with a warm personality.
