Care Philosophy

Diagnosis is a large part of the practice of physiatry, and a good history and physical exam are crucial to the diagnosis. If we focus on a single organ system, I may miss the diagnosis completely. In order to make an accurate diagnosis in pain one has to listen to the patient. Believe the Patient I recently discovered some interesting statistics about pain sufferers in the state of Maryland. Sixty-six percent of Maryland households have someone who suffers pain on a monthly basis and 45% of Maryland households have someone who suffers pain on a daily basis. Seventy-eight percent were never referred to a pain specialist and 65% were not aware that there is such a thing as a pain specialist. Many had been told by their doctors that pain is part of growing old. Treat the Cause:Spend time trying to figure out why the patient is hurting. Re-Educate the Muscles:Unlike a broken bone that fixed stays fixed, a herniated disc usually occurs because of some imbalance between the musculature.Read more

Dr. Kahan has helped me tremendously with my pain. I have a very complex case. My right urethra was injured during a surgical option causing me severe, unbearable pain. He has worked diligently to find the right pain management program for me. He listens, answers all of my questions. When I get nervous during a injection, he keeps me calm by talking me through it. I would be very bad off if it weren't for him. His staff is great. I highly recommend Dr. Kahan.

Meet Dr. Kahn for scheduled, started scheduling me for injection of spine and hip without any past medical records/prior treatment. Minimized being in anticoagulant therapy a and past failure in his proposed treatment. I personally believe he would make a great used car salesman. Too busy soon a I had a question he was seeing another patient. Office totally disorganized with twenty minutes had 4 different appointments, got home and appointments changed. Feel this Dr. is dangerous!

Dr. Hahan has a great personality and made me feel comfortable. He explained everything and made sure that I had no questions. He and his staff are wonderful.
Annapolis, MD |
I have been a patient of Dr. Kahan's for over 10 years. I am currently 61 years old and I suffer from chronic back pain due to herniated disc L3, L4 L5 , S1 and sciatica down both legs. I qualify for surgery: spinal fusion and or titanium rods, but with a 30% success rate based on my diagnosis, I have elected to get conservative treatment from the Kahan Center for Pain Management rather than surgery.The procedures and treatment I have received from Dr. Kahan have been successful for me.
in Chester, MD |
Dr. Kayan was rude, perfunctory, and rushed on both occasions. His office called three times to be sure I would bring cash to the appointment though I have full coverage with Cigna. Since my visits, two doctors have said, ssentially, he's a nice guy, but I don't know how good of a doctor he is. He explained nothing, and did not discuss options, and I will hit myself on the head with a rock before I ever go back to him. Stay away!
