Dr Khan is an amazing and talented surgeon and is thorough. He uses other methods of pain relief (injections, physical therapy, etc). He knows you and your case, you're not just a patient ID to him. I do recommend him to anyone who suffers from pain.

Office staff very slow, and need more professional training to take care of patients.

I had surgery with Dr.Khan in 2010. I was expecting 6 week recovery time but surgery was fast and smooth. I was ready to go back in 2 weeks...but he had me wait a little bit longer. If I had known he could fix me this easily then I wouldon't have done it years before. I was so scared of surgery. I never care about bedside manners as long as they are good at what they do. However, his bedside manner was a pleasant bonus. He went over all options prior to surgery and answered all of my questions.

Dr. Khan and his PA Brian are awesome! They have great bedside manner and spend time with you. My surgery on my Lumbar spine went well. Dr Khan took the time to explain everything to me and my family. I would definitely recommend Dr Khan to my family and friends. I actually already referred him to a friend!

Terrible experience. Came in for what I thought was a routine back surgery. I had a ruptured disc. Dr khan performed the surgery, which didn't go well. I had to have a 2nd surgery due to spinal fluid leaking from 1st surgery. 2 infections associated with the surgery. It's been 3 years since the surgery and I will never be able to run again...
in Huntington Beach, CA |
Skilled surgeon. I am 4 wks. post op and doing terrific thanks to Dr. Kahn and his staff. If you want hand holding like a 5 year old go elsewhere. However, if you educate yourself with your particular injury (via internet) and have five dozen questions, the doctor or Brian (PA) is more than happy to patiently, kindly answer all your questions. Additionally, the office staff is very professional and competent (thanks again Brooke for understanding why I chickened out on initial surgery appt.).

Never took the time to review any of the MRI films that he had ordered.
