Ratings for Dr. Sami O. Khan
I went to see Dr. Kahn for a bulging disc in my neck. The nerve pain through my neck, shoulder, arm and fingers was unbearable. Dr. Kahn put me on a NSAID and percocet; which did nothing for the pain. After being on the NSAIDS for 5 days with no relief in pain, I emailed him to ask when I would get relief as I couldn't sleep and the pain was excrutiating. He basically told me that I had to wait at least 10 days for any relief and may have to do another round of NSAIDS before I would notice anything. Gee, thanks for your caring compassion. I had a follow up appointment scheduled and when I called to confirm it; I was told they had no record of an upcoming appointment. I hope this rescheduled appointment goes better this time around and he actually can show some caring about the constant nerve pain and tingling I have in my neck, shoulder, arm and hand because I can't deal with this anymore. I will probably end up going to another doctor. Not really happy with this guy.
Dr. Khan is a great physician. I injured my shoulder playing tennis and needed surgery. He helped me feel comfortable throughout the whole process and now I am back playing A level tennis! And when my son hurt his knee in college sports, he helped him through that and he is back playing too! I would not go to anyone else!
Went to see dr khan after pulling something in my neck. He did an X-ray and thought it was a pinched nerve in my neck. Did physical therapy as he recommended. Had the hardest time trying to get in touch with him to get some questions answered. i left. Messages for him to call me and never got a call back. His staff scheduled me for an mri and it took them forever to do because they had insurance issues. Finally after they scheduled mri, I found out it was cheaper to pay for it out of pocket the pay my insurance deductible. Nonetheless, it seems like a chop shop doctors office. Concerned about getting as many patients thru there rAther then providing real care. I still in pain whe I wait for results but thinking about finding another ortho.
I have been seeing Dr Khan for the last 4 years for my sports related shoulder (rotator cuff) and knee injury (ACL tear) and have even sent my friends and relatives to him. His bedside manner and surgical skill are perfect. He is a kind, intelligent person who takes his time with each patient. After trying to avoid surgery with physical therapy, I finally had my ACL repaired, and it is as good as new. He did a fabulous job. I have complete trust and respect for Dr Khan. Highly recommend him!
Dr. Khan did a terrible job on my ACL replacement and meniscus repair. He shaved off too much menisci and placed the new ACL in such a way that I cannot fully bend my knee to stretch my quad muscle. Also, the knee now cracks and creaks. It also stays swollen with fluid. He said my repaired knee "will be your 'good' knee" -- far from what I got. Rather than admit his poor surgery he recommended knee replacement. He also tried to get me to say I had arthritis in my knee before the injury! I doubt this man's integrity as well as his skill. I've moved on to another doctor and another rehab office and have seen some improvement although the problems were confirmed. I will never use Resurgens again.
Dr. Kahn treated my 26 yr old son for a broken tibia & fibula; the break required surgery, and Dr. Kahn was patient, offered all possible scenarios, and let my son make the decision. My son had never had any surgical procedure before, and was understandably nervous. Dr. Kahn made the experience as smooth as possible. Our family was quite impressed and quite pleased with the care and followup treatment.
