How was your experience with the doctor?I have been to see Dr Kahn a number of times, including once for a very serious condition. His help and willingness to make himself available to me during this time really gave me great comfort, and shows that he is willing to go to extraordinary lengths for his patients.

How was your experience with the doctor?I feel confident I’m receiving a thorough body check: Dr Kahn tracks measurements of every large freckle and birthmark; tells me the medical names of skin formations - and not to worry.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a wonderful visit with Dr. Kahn once I was actually seen, after 45 minutes of waiting. I found him to be courteous and professional, very knowledgeable and wouldn't deter anyone from visiting him. But that wait was a bit much. :)

How was your experience with the doctor?Pretty bad experience as a first time patient. Took an hour before I was seen by the doctor. After being checked in, I was escorted to the examination room where the medical assistant got down all my history, allergies, etc. She assured me the doctor will be in shortly and after waiting for another half hour, I had to go outside to check and see if they forgot about me. Nope. The doctor was just taking his sweet time. I wont be coming back.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Kahn is a consummate professional, and I have been his patient for 20 years. He is the only doctor that I continue to travel to Manhattan to see for his medical expertise even though I am now retired and could easily find another dermatologist in Queens. No one could replace him.

How was your experience with the doctor?I have been a patient of Dr. Kahn's for many years. I have sarcoidosis and seem to contract various skin problems at various times. Dr. Kahn is always on target for diagnosing whatever the condition is and for prescribing an appropriate medication. He is one of the best doctors I have ever found.

How was your experience with the doctor?He was nice, he seemed a little relaxed about my moles and other anomalies on my skin. I guess I was looking for a more thorough search and record on all the moles I have so that we can spot any changes in the future.

How was your experience with the doctor?I definitely did not like this doctor and his office. I waited for over an hour to meet with him, and I had to rush them because I was going to be late for work. Finally when I got inside I had to wait even more time in the office for him. I think I waited another 20 minutes before I asked again and they said he would come. He came 5 minutes after I asked so in total around an hour and a half wait! Then he saw me, prescribed things, and then left. All in all I waited an hour and a half for a 3 minute consultation. I have NO idea why I waited that long if he only meets his patients for 3 minutes! As a doctor I think you should take time into each patient to understand their goals. He did not ask me anything and he already knew what he was going to prescribe me. I would not recommend. I will not be returning.

How was your experience with the doctor?he explained everything, thoroughly checked the areas I was interested in him checking. I had a cyst that he suggested two possible courses of action for, and I opted for cortizone shot. his manner was polite and friendly, not brisk or hurried. But everything went very quickly.
