Dr. Kevin M. Cahill's Ratings
Kevin Cahill has severe limitation in his diagnosis and treatment. Good thing is e takes parasites seriously unlike other bad gastro doctors, who chuck up all gastro problems to IBS or Crohn's. But Cahill is also limited. Guy largely finds eh, but this is not always a sure diagnosis. Because if he does not find eh with red blood cells with trohozoites, then it is not a correct one. Someone he says to people, he finds evidence of Eh, which is completely an incorrect diagnosis. Also Cahill cannot find many other parasites like Strongyloides or Trichenella or other helminths which may not be in stool. So he is also overly reliant on stool test he does. More than does, even if he finds Eh, he always give the wrong meds. with wrong combinations. Sometimes Tinidazole and Alinia and sometimes Paromomycin and Doxy, wrong combination with wrong doze. The guy does not exactly how to treat. Even when the information is easily available. Go find another doctor who knows how to treat eh with proper drug combination with proper dosage.
I can't say enough good things about Dr. Cahill. He was the ONLY doctor who was able to give me a correct diagnosis. I went to other specialists for months only to be told I'm "fine" while I was in so much pain and felt like I had the flu everyday. Parasites cause serious damage and the strangest symptoms, but he is the only doctor who was able to help me. This world needs more doctors like him and it's a pity that no other doctor considers parasites or has the knowledge to treat them properly. This man is a Saint and I owe my good health to him! I hope other Doctors take interest in his expertise and become more educated in the field of parasitology, especially the gastroenterologists who just sum everything up to IBS.
This is a really amazing doctor. He diagnoses you very quickly and then helps to get the proper care. If you have a parasite, or never even suspect it, but have so-called IBS or gastro issues, and more seriously other things such as sleeping issues, indigestion, bloating, weight loss, loss of appetite, itching, rashes, which are often unexplained, whether they came on suddenly or gradually, go see this doctor. I would strongly advice against seeing typical doctors or gastro "specialists" in particular. They just dont know how to diagnose anything. They have no knowledge of parasites and think they exist only in some OTHER country. And they will give you steroids and other drugs like humira , which will destroy your gut and immunity. Take it from me. I wasted so much time, running from doctor to doctor. Until I had the fortune to see this doctor. There just are not many doctors of Cahill's caliber!
Doctor Cahill seemed like he had potential. There seem to be few parasite specialist doctors in New York and probably other states as well currently so Dr. kevin Cahill seemed like he could be a shot at helping ongoing problems. Ultimately this doctor did not help. First time I saw him he claimed he found a parasite that seemed different than what my symptoms were for or at least symptoms suggested other types as well and my second visit with him found nothing. The doctor also seems to talk a lot about himself and doesn't even give blood tests to confirm or help with diagnosing infections. Overall this doctor did not help and I have to seek out more doctors now. Cahill's office isn't cheap either as the office takes cash as opposed to insurance. If he did comprehensive blood tests and spent more time with patients it seems like his office could have potential but as it is now it isn't that way. He may be able to help some people but overall I would give this office a low rating.
Dr. Cahill is a first-rate diagnostician and humanitarian. I had been misdiagnosed by FOUR doctors over a year who told me that my stomach pain and swelling were psychosomatic. Dr. Cahill just listened to my symptoms for 5 minutes and guessed what parasite I had. He tested me and 24 hours later it was confirmed. A few *days* later I was on medication and feeling 200% better. He actually takes the time to listen to his patients and is extremely kind. You are never just another number to him. He does everything, not just infectious diseases, great GP. Extremely knowledgeable, experienced physician.
Reading these other reviews I thought I was looking at the wrong Dr. Kevin Cahill. The doctor I know is not arrogant, he's very humble and he's the best in figuring out if you have parasites within 24 hours and the proper treatment. He's the best in the field. He's probably around 85 now. he's the first one to identify HIV and convince the gov. that it was not just a "gay" disease.
Saw him years ago when I was a young woman. He was extremely arrogant and showed no consideration for my modesty (ripped the paper gown down the middle, which was uncalled for and extremely embarrassing). At least if his arrogance and disregard for the feelings/modesty of his patients enabled him to correctly diagnose and treat them, perhaps such traits could be overlooked. But no, he is inept at both diagnosing and treating. Don't waste your time, gas, money or breath.
