Ratings for Dr. Scott I. Kahan
Dr. Kahan is the warmest, kindest, most empathetic doctor you will ever meet. His knowledge is exceeded only by his experience in the treatment of obesity. As a patient you will find him both a friend and your greatest cheerleader as you learn ways to cope with food issues that will last you for the rest of your life. The office also provides a coordinated team of specialists ranging from psychologists to nutritionists to fitness specialists who will address the issues you face as you work to change you eating and thought patterns. There are various group sessions dealing with a range of common problems (emotional eating, stress, nutrition, fitness) as well as private appointments to help you create, modify, and adhere to a plan that works for you. I cannot imagine a more supportive, flexible team. The tone is set by Dr. Kahan and his endless enthusiasm for his work and for your success.
Dr. Kahan makes you feel like you're his only patient. He listens so actively to everything you say. He provided me with much needed encouragement and support. I can't recommend him more highly. Wish I could say the same of all my other doctors. They really can't/don't compare.
Dr. Kahan is a very kind, compassionate person and a highly competent physican who has helped me to understand and to deal with my weight management issues. With his ongoing guidance and support, I have been able to start and continue with a rigorous exercise program for the first time in my life and to manage my weight effectively. As a result, I have been able to reduce my stress levels at home and at work and to stop overeating as a means of handling stress and emotional issues. I feel 100 percent better physically, emotionally, and mentally. This is largely due to Dr. Kahan!
Dr Kahan is an outstanding doctor. He is thorough, well informed, empathetic, and is focused and pragmatic. He thinks beyond the immediate medical appointment to the challenges a patient faces outside his office and helps find practical approaches and solutions. He is energetic and has a great sense of humor. I find his supportive approach essential to my ability to remain committed to this program and the cchallenges of changin my lifestyle to effect and maintain the weight I have lost
Scott Kahan respects the intelligence of his patients while empathizing with the fear and anxiety that often come with health concerns. He meets each individual where she is, listening carefully and offering more help than most medical doctors, working tirelessly to treat patients with forward-thinking tools and old-fashioned family doctor kindness and individualized care. Dr. Kahan sees the whole person in front of him, not just the symptoms, disease or condition. He sees the specific challenges, strengths, needs, and possibilities for each person. By looking at the big picture, Dr. Kahan is often identifies factors that affect a patient’s health in ways that she may not have realized. He then patiently and encouragingly works with the patient to find ways to make small changes that can make big differences. While he is a medical doctor, patients often feel they are talking to a supportive friend, loving brother, encouraging coach or enthusiastic teacher when talking to him.
Dr. Kahan is absolutely fantastic. He relates to his patients and makes it clear he is willing to go the extra mile for your success. He never comes across as judgmental, rushed, or less than present at your appointments. He gets to know you as an individual and caters to your life/personality needs and conveys his wealth of knowledge in a unique package that works for your success.
Dr. Kahan is a highly knowledgeable and compassionate Doctor. He is able to address the client needs in a holistic manner - he knows his science, he knows psychology, and knows the complexities associated with weight management. I attribute my success to him. He has changed my view of weight management and of myself. Thanks Dr. Kahan!
Dr. Kahan is very knowledgeable in his field. Even more importantly he seems interested in his patients as whole people rather than just problems to fix. We have meandered far away from the immediate problem I came to him with in many conversations and I'm certain that makes him a better doc for me. Would highly recommend him.
Scott is an extremely capable and knowledgable physician. I feel that he is my allie in my efforts to reduce my weight and improve my health. With his help I have released over 80lbs during the past 12 months that i've been seeing him at the George Washington University Weight Management Program.
