Dr Kahn showed great bed-side manner as always. During my appointment, he was excellent at administering care, taking biopsy, and explaining all next steps. I always feel like I can ask questions or talk about any of what is going on during my appointment without being rushed.

Dr. Kahn is very thorough and takes his time. Reviews previous records and asks relevant questions. He makes you feel comfortable but thorough in full exam. Explains things very well and is honest when there is no known cause for things. Appreciated his openness and honesty and he garnered my trust. Also helpful with a few issues I had. I would highly recommend him.

As I've said before ... and I'll say again, Dr. Kahn qualifies as my favorite doctor. In addition to the fact that he is obviously skillful and knowledgeable, he is kind, friendly, respectful, warm, and totally appropriate in his interactions with me. Now a 76-year-old woman, I particularly appreciate this ... as it is not always my experience.

Dr Steven Kahn is professional, friendly, approachable, and has great bed-side manner. He clearly knows his medical specialty. His surgical skills are strong, he removed a spot easily and in another appointment, removed something perfectly without it scarring over. I've been to other dermatologists in the past, and Kahn is way better! I'm so grateful to have found him.
