Dr. Kahn is a wonderful doctor who is caring and has a wonderful bedside manner. The office staff and or call center is a big mess. They have messed up appointments, in fact they just recently scheduled an appointment when there was no doctor in the office. They have messed up billing and copays leading my sons bill being sent to a collection agency leading to ruining his perfect credit score. In addition, filling prescriptions is a nightmare in that office

The doctor himself was adequate and a nice guy but trying to speak with the office rather than the call center is difficult. The office doesnt answer the phones during business hours and return calls when it isnt convenient for the patient. There are many Dematologists in Tribeca so a patient does not have to settle for difficulties or frustrations when trying to obtain information about the last visit.

Although it can take some time to get an appointment, it is well worth the wait. I’ve been to several dermatologist, Dr. Kahn is the very best.

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.
