I think that he is an excellent dermatologist. The only thing I would recommend the office to do is to re-do the downstairs rooms which are airless and a bit damp. Change carpet and paint walls for a start.

I was pretty disappointed with the customer service and I felt very rushed with the doctor. I was unable to ask all questions. I felt that it was not very through and they didn't seem too care much. Also the waitingarea was very nice but the room where I was examined was very dirty. I would say go here if it is the only one your insurance accepts, the Doctor was nice and all but it's not anything to write home about to.

I had a wonderful visit with Dr. Kahn once I was actually seen, after 45 minutes of waiting. I found him to be courteous and professional, very knowledgeable and wouldn't deter anyone from visiting him. But that wait was a bit much. :)

Pretty bad experience as a first time patient. Took an hour before I was seen by the doctor. After being checked in, I was escorted to the examination room where the medical assistant got down all my history, allergies, etc. Sheassured me the doctor will be in shortly and after waiting for another half hour, I had to go outside to check and see if they forgot about me. Nope. The doctor was just taking his sweet time. I wont be coming back.

Dr. Kahn is a consummate professional, and I have been his patient for 20 years. He is the only doctor that I continue to travel to Manhattan to see for his medical expertise even though I am now retired and couldeasily find another dermatologist in Queens. No one could replace him.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kahn's for many years. I have sarcoidosis and seem to contract various skin problems at various times. Dr. Kahn is always on target for diagnosing whatever the condition is and for prescribing an appropriatemedication. He is one of the best doctors I have ever found.

Really comprehensive appointment. Dr. Kahn answered all of my questions and weighed options with me. He recommended a less invasive type of treatment, which will be more affordable, too. Big plus! Will be going back soon.

He was nice, he seemed a little relaxed about my moles and other anomalies on my skin. I guess I was looking for a more thorough search and record on all the moles I have so that we can spot any changes in the future.

I definitely did not like this doctor and his office. I waited for over an hour to meet with him, and I had to rush them because I was going to be late for work. Finally when I got inside Ihad to wait even more time in the office for him. I think I waited another 20 minutes before I asked again and they said he would come. He came 5 minutes after I asked so in total around an hour and a half wait! Then he saw me, prescribed things, and then left. All in all I waited an hour and a half for a 3 minute consultation. I have NO idea why I waited that long if he only meets his patients for 3 minutes! As a doctor I think you should take time into each patient to understand their goals. He did not ask me anything and he already knew what he was going to prescribe me. I would not recommend. I will not be returning.

ZocDoc never relayed to Dr. Kahn that I was coming in so luckily they were able to take me anyways. I would ensure ZocDoc is always in contact with the doctor as I would have been upset if I arrived and they wouldn't have taken me.

Honestly, waiting 45 minutes for an appointment is absurd. Why do we make appointments in the first place if they can't stick to a timetable? He's a nice doctor - knows what he's doing, but I can't appreciate an office that doesn't appreciate my time.

Dr. Kahn is amazing! Recently, someone told me that I have "flawless" skin, which is a compliment I never imagined I would receive. I went to Dr. Kahn for a second opinion after being told by a dermatologist that I wouldneed laser resurfacing treatments for my facial acne scarring. Dr. Kahn told me that most of my scarring is light and that it could be treated non-aggressively with chemical peels (a course of 4-6, but, also, I could have just 1 and be happy with it). Simply his saying that made me feel so much better. I have had one 30% glycolic peel thus far, by Dr. Kahn, and the results have been amazing -- more than I ever expected! Also, Dr. Kahn took the time to explain to me how my other medications work. After understanding what these prescriptions do, I have become much more compliant and diligent about applying them.
