11/12/13 5 5 5 5 Cora F. Dr. Kahan is an exceptional doctor. As an 82 year old female he takes his time to give the utmost professional care to me and my feet. I truly appreciate the care and attention he gives me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get platinum service. Dr. Kahan "You're the BEST"!!!!!!!!!!  Respond

27/01/13 4 5 5 5 After an auto accident 11 years ago..., and the loss of my kaiser insurance recently I took "refuge" with Dr. kahan who welcomed me and helped me from that point on. There were no real significant changes I had to make to see the doctor, and I felt like it was a seemless transition. That was all I could ask or hope for. Then the doctor went on further! He actually cared about my treatment and took the time to make sure I was getting the best possible treatment. Money was never the driving motivation behind decisions, and you get a real sense of caring and family... As close as I think you can get to the chicken soup delivering doctors of previous generations. It's a pleasure to have such a good podiatrist to help me with my feet troubles. Including shoes, orthotics, and laser therapy that has a significant effect, despite the fact lasers are for the most part useless, this one is not.  Respond

10/11/12 5 5 5 5 My 15 yr old son Quinten's ingrown toe problem began in Scottsdale, AZ where a Podiatrist pushed us into believing that surgery removing the nails back beyond the roots/cuticle without chem use would solve the problem. After months of following the prescribed care Q's toe nail started to grow back becoming even more infected. We worried it would end his athletic dreams. We lost faith in surgical options & tried every home remedy possible. The situation just got worse. Having just moved to the Sacramento area, without insurance, we resourced local family/friends for references for a local Podiatrist. Clearly they had bad experiences with other Doctors. As a typical VERY concerned parent I researched and read all I could about local Podiatrists. Dr David Kahan is all & more regarding his great revues. Dr Kahan worked with us in getting in quickly, was THE MOST RESPECTFUL doctor, runs a wonderful office of professionals, is a master of his trade and most important he fixed Q's toes.  Respond

12/07/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kahan is a warm and compassionate plus has a great sense of humor. His staff is wonderful. I went to Dr. Kahan after I was misdiagnosed by another doctor and he gave me the right diagnosis and prognosis. I don't go anywhere else.

11/04/12 5 4 5 5 This is my first time with Dr. Kahan. Liked the first time when I saw his video and when I saw him I was not disappointed. He is very nice, makes you feel good and very helpful. Time will tell about his work but I have faith that I will be able to show my toes again.

12/03/12 1 1 1 1 The ABSOLUTE worst Podiatrist I ever went to. NO insight as to client needs, EXTREMELY POOR "bedside manner". Claims he is "the best". That should tell you about his arrogance.  See Responses

21/11/11 5 4 5 5 After researching various options in Sacramento, Dr. Kahan was my first choice. Because the infected area on many of my toes was so thick, Dr. Kahan was very candid about not having a good chance for success and leaving the decision up to me about whether or not to try it. He did not pressure me in any way at all, so it was clear to me that my welfare, rather than his profit, was his higher priority. I went for it. I've now had all three of the treatments that his price includes. Time will tell what the final result is, because my nails still need to grow in. But, it looks like several (and possibly all) are successful -- including an impossible-to-hide finger. Furthermore, Dr. Kahan has always been very nice to be with and his staff has always been helpful. In several ways (including a billing problem I had), he has always shown the highest integrity and competence.

31/10/11 3 3 5 5 I was very happy with the results that I saw and Dr. Kahan's willingness to continue working with me until the desired results were achieved. He didn't just stop with the three treatments mentioned in the ad but continued to treat for over 10 months to insure my nails were as I wanted them.  Respond

15/09/10 5 5 5 5 I HAD toenail fungus. Dr. Kahan told me "there isn't anyone who will work harder for you". I believed him and so glad I did. Every week I can see the nail growing out. I am so excited to have NORMAL nails again.  Respond

19/04/09 5 5 4 5 I have a calause that becomes very painful over a few days. Because of my work schedule he always makes time for me. Either it be over his lunch or after hours (around 5:30). Most of the podiatrist that I have seen in the past are NOT as accommodating as he is. Letters to my workers comp adjuster is done that day. Will I see him again??? Defiantly Yes!!!

20/09/08 5 5 5 5 The BEST dr. visit I have EVER experienced. ALL doctors should be like Dr. Kahan. I loved the lay back feeling he gave us and his "bedside manner" was the BEST ever. WOW. Just wish he was a Family Practice Dr.! You could not ask for a more friendly Dr. Keep up the AWESOME work. Thanks so much!

16/04/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Kahan is knowledgeable, very personable, and easy to approach, he's a great listener, and an outstanding podiatrist. He's even got an awesome sense of humor. His secretary is friendly, and the wait it short. His office is out of the way in a quiet shopping center near the American River. If you live in the greater Sacramento area, this doctor is definitely worth the drive to Carmichael.
