Dr Kahana did an excellent job on my orbital decompression surgeries. He is very caring and takes the time to be accessible on the days following surgery to check on and answer any questions and concerns. I highly recommend him!

I could write a paper on everything that went wrong. I'll keep it short and just say that if you're seeing him for anything tumor or reconstruction related; find a new surgeon. He performed the surgery poorly, didn't remove much of the tumor and left me with pain and a significant facial deformity that I'll have to live with for the rest of my life. He lied about the cause of the deformity. After switching teams at UofM I found out how everything went wrong. Kahana left UofM a few months after my surgery with him. The new team I was put with had to do their best to remove tumor he left behind while attempting to improve the deformity. He comes off as very kind and charming when you meet him. From my experience he lacks ethics and will put his career ahead of your health and well being if he thinks he can get away with it.

Dr. Kahana corrected deformities in my sister's (who has Down's Syndrome) eyelids. I was impressed by his professionalism and knowledge of the condition. the condition had gone undiagnosed by other ophthalmologists. Dr. Kahana explained that not all ophthalmologists are aware of the condition. I'm thankful that we happened upon him. He also noted corneal scarring due to a different defect and referred my sister to a cornea specialist, again for which I am grateful. I recommend the good doctor wholeheartedly.

I had ptosis surgery by him in May. He was excellent and explained the procedure in detail. He called me later that afternoon to see how I was doing. He was professional, personable, knowledgeable, and caring.

My daughter had surgery done by Dr. Kahana, and my experience was nothing like the previous review. Dr. Kahana stayed in close contact before and after the surgery. I felt like his heart connected with ours. He is a very good doctor that understands the fear a parent has and addresses all issues.

Very hard to get in contact with for urgent matters. Even when you do get in contact there is no resolution just a waiting game. After seeing you a couple times he tries to drop you as a patient by leaving you hanging with no answer or guidance.
