I am an RN on Staten Island and my previous Dermatologist of many years passed away. My son is a patient of Dr. Kahn in Manhattan & recommended him. I felt he was caring & knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him to others

Unreliable. Dr. Kahn prescribed medication that was not covered by insurance and too expensive to pay for out of pocket. The pharmacy and myself called his office multiple times without getting returned calls. The pharmacy offered to send one of their reps to his office to see if they could get him to prescribe an alternative. Rather go to a doctor's office that knows how to return a call.

Excellent attention, review and follow up to a serious skin condition. Was extremely helpful in getting me to deal with and cure a very uncomfortable condition of the mouth. Dr. Kahn is the best for caring and handling a difficult situation to the cure. This was several years ago, and I still follow up with his associate, Dr. Carolin Penrose. Also an excellent, caring and thorough doctor.
