Dr. Kahn's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kahn "Dr. Kahn is a board certified gynecologist and also was one of the first in the country to obtain additional subspecialty certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery (urogynecology). Thus he is able to treat the full spectrum of concerns related to the female pelvic organs. Dr. Kahn treats many complex gynecologic problems including uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, menstrual disorders, menopausal symptoms, contraception, infertility and more. He has particular expertise in treating difficult problems such as pelvic pain, interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome), urinary incontinence, frequency and urgency (overactive bladder), as well as pelvic organ prolapse (uterine or vaginal prolapse). Whenever possible, Dr. Kahn seeks to find non-surgical solutions for his patients. However, when surgery is necessary, he strives to ensure that patients receive a minimally invasive procedure whenever possible. He has extensive experience in all type of pelvic surgery including vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic procedures. He was one of the first surgeons in San Diego to perform laparoscopic hysterectomy and more recently, he was one of the first to offer robotically-assisted single incision ("belly button") hysterectomy."

So far Dr. Kahn is extremely personable. I am having surgery soon.He gave me a biopsy and an internal exam, and explained everything he was doing at the moment. He took measurements so that he could put the numbers into the computer and show me how my prolapse looks. He explained all my options and asked if I had any questions, he answered and explained everything again without an attitude. Yes, he spoke into his microphone instead of typing the notes. Very efficient! Belinda is the best too!

If you are looking for the best OBGYN doctor, then your search has ended. Dr. Bruce Kahn, M.D.F.A.C.O.G and his staff (Leigh C. and Belinda M.) are exceptional and very dedicated to their patients. Dr. Kahn and staff provide a higher standard of health care, which I hope is the model of the future in the medical industry!  He has my vote for Doctor of the Year!! Without hesitation, I would highly recommend Dr. Kahn. Daphne

Dr. Bruce Kahn is an amazing doctor! He is double board certified in OB/GYN and Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery/Urogynecology - one of very few doctors in the country with this distinction. He is caring, a highly-skilled surgeon, and his staff are wonderful! I went to Dr.Kahn seeking for a THIRD opinion for my pelvic pain/fibroids and my experience with Dr.Kahn has been excellent from start to finish. I am very thankful for having Dr. Kahn as my doctor!

Dr. Kahn was too physically aggressive. He saw that the exam he was giving was making me very uncomfortable (a gyn exam does not need to be painful) and continued to be just as aggressive. Also, instead of speaking about concerns I have, he spent the entire time speaking his notes into the computer in "Dr. speak" so in the end I felt like he was doing his administrative work instead of patient care.

Dr. Kahn handled a "pelvic floor" problem for me, and I can't say enough about his expertise and professionalism. The staff was friendly and helpful and the office clean and orderly. I DID have to have several appointments moved around the calendar a bit, but I think that's because Dr. Kahn is in high demand!

?I was beyond impressed with my experience at Dr. Bruce Kahn office. All the staff is great. I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind Gigi was and how fast she was at getting back to me! A lot of doctors don?t realize how important it is to have administration and staff like his. Dr. Kahn and his staff are all I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. He provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue.

Dr. Kahn is an amazing doctor and his staff is courteous, patient and helpful. I had surgery for pelvic prolapse issues in September 2015. Dr. Kahn spent time with me, explained everything clearly and with great care. He is a wonderful surgeon, and I would highly recommend Dr. Kahn.
