After seeing 5 other orthopedic surgeons, Dr. K was by far the best match for me. He's straight forward, well spoken, kind, thorough and an expert in his field. My surgery and recovery was a massive success. He also is amazing at following up with me no matter how silly I think the question is or isn't. And for the record I have followed him across state lines for care and treatment.

I would not recommend seeing Dr. Kahanovitz if you expect a thorough examination and care toward your medical concern. I provided Dr. Kahanovitz with my MRI disc which he did not review nor explain to me. He took a brief history that yielded inaccuracies and subsequent issue with insurance coverage. As a result, he suggested I return after telling me at the exam that he wouldn't need to see me again.
