Dr. Kahn performed an out patient bladder sling operation at the Scripps Carmel Valley Clinic. Everyone involved in the procedure was so professional and caring. From the nurses to the doctors, they made the experience very easy for me. Dr. Kahn's office staff is great. All of the nurses are highly professional and kind. Lots of explanations of what to expect and everyone took time to answer questions.

Dr Kahn is by far one of the best OBGYN Surgeons ever. He takes the time to explain procedures being performed . I would highly recommend this physician to my family and friends.

One of the most skilled, knowledgeable, and compassionate doctors I met. Unlike many doctors these days, Dr. Kahn actually listens to his patient, answers questions at the level of detail at which they are asked, and takes patient's input into consideration when formulating his professional opinion and recommendations. He deals with difficult ObGyn problems and addresses them with the highest degree of professionalism. He is a talented surgeon, too - I was up and running in literally no time after the laparoscopic surgery that he performed on me. Highly recommend him!

I recently had a hysterectomy with no complications - however, I experienced high anxiety due to the deaths of my father and grandmother in hospitals....Dr. Kahn and the staff at Scripps Memorial in LaJolla put me at ease.

I had pain in my lower left abdomen that doctors had been giving me pain killers for almost 2 years. Dr. Bruce Kahn diagnosed the cause and treated me in one visit. He put in time to understand the history of this pain and got right down to diagnosing and treating it. He was excellent.

I had a laporascopic myomectomy done by Dr. Kahn and it was quite a big fibroid he took out. He's very knowledgeable and I'm happy with the result of the surgery. The scars on my abdomen have healed up very nicely and are almost visibly gone. Thank you Dr. Kahn.

Dr. Kahn listened to me. He was kind, caring and understanding. I felt that he was going to be able to take care of my pain and my bladder problems. He did both ! He gave me back my life. I don't believe I would be able to say enough kind words about this man. He did everything he said he was going to do and everything went just as he explained it to me. He answered all of my questions and made my husband a part of the process. He was just Amazing !!

I had a major surgery and was recovering almost instantly. I never used the pain medication only tylenol and motrin for first two days. Was up and walking feeling good hours after surgery. his application of enhanced recovery made a huge difference. Amazing talented surgeon. Can not say enough... I interviewed 8 doctors and he was the right choice. I am forever grateful.

Dr. Bruce Kahn is an excellent physician. I've chosen to utilize this doctor since 2010 when I learned about the progression of my endometrial cancer. Even when I moved out of the state, I chose to return to Dr. Kahn for my needs due to his expertise and clinical skills. In 2011, I chose to use a non-traditional method to treat my pre-cancer and Dr. Kahn supported me with guidance and respect. I have had 2 hysteroscopy, multiple biopsies, and follow up care. I trust Dr. Kahn because he is caring, kind, skilled and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Dr. Kahn.

Dr. Kahn gave me excellant care during my gyn.sugery process. He spent time with me answering all my questions, explaining my treatment options and educating me with my expected results after sugery. He has many yrs experience in ob/gyn,robotic surgery and radiology.His knowledge and manner was most comforting during some very important decisions I was making about my health. I would highly reccommend this Physician. His staff is wonderful.

“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. My appointment ran on time, Dr. Kahn was really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment! I would highly recommend this medical group! If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring even while maintain a very efficient office, then Dr. Kahn is someone you should consider visiting.”

If you are a woman with pelvic pain and you have reached that desperate moment where you feel that no one can help you, is time for you to see Dr. Bruce Kahn @ Scripps Clinic Carmel Valley I have had pelvic pain for over 3 years and seen 4 other specialists before I saw Dr. Kahn. On my first visit he knew exactly what to do when I described my pain and after just a few visits of trigger point injections my pain is finally gone, he is wonderful, he explains everything he is doing, he makes sure you are comfortable with the treatment. Excellent bedside manners, and he truly cares about getting rid of your pain. I would recommend him to any women with pelvic pain, and to top it all off his office is nice and clean and the staff is friendly and caring as well. Thank you Dr. Kahn you are truly wonderful!

I just recently went to meet with Dr. Kahn after the P.A. referred me to him in order to discuss options including surgery. He was very calming and thorough. I left his office confident that I made the right decision. I ended up having a hysterectomy, sling placement, and A&P repair. The recovery was much better than I expected. Just maybe 2 days of feeling some pain on the 3 or 4 day following procedure. After that, I felt good but would just get fatigued by end of day. This is without needing to take any pain medication. In addition, his office staff is incredible, and the office is very clean. I would highly recommend Dr. Kahn with confidence to anyone no matter what their need!

As a healthcare professional I can say he definitely knows his stuff! He helped me solve a problem no one else could help me with. He is at the cutting edge for interstitial cystitis. He and his staff are prompt, provide accurate information and are friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Kahn.

f 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 has been my primary OBGYN for over ten years. I am in the best possible hands with Dr. Kahn and his staff. They always provide the absolute best care (very thorough) and I believe; best advice and treatment (from routine, to minor and major surgeries) during every visit and for each issue. Dr. Kahn is extremely intelligent, a compassionate and caring person and a truly outstanding doctor. He genuinely cares, he is professional and he makes an investment in the health and well-being of his patients. I count myself extremely lucky to have found him. He is always on time if not early and consistently answers all of my questions. 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.

I went to see Dr. Kahn after seeing several doctors for the same problem. No one else was able to help. He was able to diagnose my problem (interstitial cystitis) quickly and had treatments to offer that worked.

I highly recommend Dr. Kahn! I had been suffering from pelvic pain for months and seen at least half a dozen physicians. Most of them told me nothing was wrong and it must be a permanent neural pain pathway that had formed due to a previous surgery. Dr. Kahn was able to find the source of my pain, developed an appropriate treatment plan and improve my quality of life significantly!

I had surgery with Dr. Kahn 4 weeks ago. He explained everything, listened to my questions & concerns. Surgery went very well and I am very pleased with the outcome. Dr. Kahn is excellent at what he does and his office staff is wonderful also.

Dr. Kahn and his nurse are amazing. After years of being in pain and seeing 3 different specialists, Dr. Khan was the only one who took me seriously. He listened carefully and gave me a diagnosis and treatment after spending an hour listening to my concerns and symptoms. Thanks to him I am almost pain free and my life is going back to normal. The wait time is minimal, he spends a good amount of time with me, and is so knowledgeable. He knew exactly what I was trying to explain and was so compassionate.

I would give 0 star if I could. This is the first and last time I see this doctor. He wouldn't listen to my concern, didn't show any respect, wouldn't explain anything.
October 17 , 2018
Overrated Doctor. Does not listen. Intent on doing a procedure he is involved in a study on instead of the procedure that may be best for the patient. I was highly dissatisfied. He is an egoistic surgeon.

Before meeting Dr. Kahn, I'd gone to urgent care and found out via ultrasound that I had 3 ovarian cysts (2 on the left side and 1 on the right). My first appointment with Dr. Kahn was very short and he postponed action despite my complaints and presence of symptoms. He had a very blasé demeanor, "we can do surgery if you want/insist so badly," but there wasn't much input from his end. After my first appointment, I already had my doubts but continued to see him anyway as other OBGYNs in the area were booked. Once my symptoms worsened and a trip to the ER later, his demeanor changed and he was fully on board with surgery. I thought my problems would end once the surgery was completed and the cysts removed, but he was only able to remove 2 cysts from my left side because he claimed he did NOT "see" any cysts on the right during surgery and that the right side was entirely healthy (despite my recurrent complaints that my right side caused the most symptoms and pain). I had to go back to urgent care after surgery because of worsening symptoms only to find out that a cyst was indeed still there on my right side. I returned to see Dr. Kahn for a last time post-surgery only for him to confirm the findings sent over from urgent care; he never acknowledged his lapse in judgment and failure to remove the cyst causing the worst symptoms above all others. I now have an appointment scheduled with another OBGYN (which I should've done in the first place) because my symptoms have not let up and I may have to have surgery to remove the remaining ovarian cyst due to Dr. Kahn's ineffectiveness.

I have never before met such a callous doctor and feel very rude with very bad attitude.
