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 Scott Kahan has seen me for about 2 years now to support me and accompany me in my journey to lose weight. With his and his colleagues help, I was able to lose 80 lbs and keep it off. What i like about Dr Kahan is that he always tries to fine tune our approach and find new ways to help me.

He is very very supportive and insightful.

I started seeing Dr. Kahan several weeks ago for help with weight loss. Scott Kahan is by far the most compassionate, empathetic, and helpful doctor whom I??ve had the pleasure to encounter. Some doctors are good at acting like they care, but he really does, and is full of useful, helpful tips to boot. It is so rare to find a physician who is bright, engaged, genuinely friendly, and so well-informed in his area of expertise. He takes his time and answers any questions that come up, encourages email as an adjunct to office services, and is always available. If you??re thinking about seeing him, GO! You won??t regret it.

In a world of puffery and over-inflated egos, it is really good to know that there are some of these reviews are thoughtful and truthful! It is true. Dr. Kahan took my case and listened to me. He has great bedside manner - a lost art. He wanted to get to know me before talking with me about my situation. As I scanned his office to find things to "get him on." He was always polite and courteous and responded in a gentle, but firm manner.

He conveyed the seriousness of efforts and let me now that he was there with me. He emailed and called to check up on me. He still does till today. He is the real deal. He is passionate. Take a chance and schedule an appointment with this doctor. You will not be disappointed.

I find Dr. Kahan to be very thorough and supportive. He incorporates the best of a traditional medical perspective with a holistic approach. Dr. Kahan reflects the level of excellence that I have come to expect from the GW Weight Management Program and, in that connection, he seems well suited to carry forth the valuable institution that Dr. Frank has founded. As well, his treatment is consistent with the overall excellence that I have experienced with other doctors and medical professionals from and/or associated with the Johns Hopkins University Hospital.

While getting a convenient appointment with Dr. Kahan is occasionally a challenge, it is only because of his well deserved popularity. He is not only a clear expert in his field and eager to share his knowledge and personal experiences, but also a genuinely warm and caring person. He is genuinely focused on each of his clients, and displays a bedside manner all but extinct in the fast paced world of modern medical care.

Scott Kahan is a first rate doc and a really good guy. Very supportive, listens well, makes himself accessible after hours via phone and email when needed, gives creative, responsive, effective advice. He discussed medications with other perscribers to suggest changes more appropriate for patients in a weight loss program, which changes, when implemented, produced a result that was worlds better. His compassion, caring, expertise and patience make him all to unique among his peers. This is the guy to see.

Dr. Kahan??s approach to treating obesity and obesity-related conditions should be taught at every health care institution in this country. During my 25 years working in the industry, I??ve never met a physician more generous with his expertise, wisdom, and genuine compassion than Scott Kahan. He is a truly nice guy. But most importantly, what Dr. Kahan recommends works: it??s based on sound medical and nutritional principles, focuses on change that can be sustained for a lifetime, and reflects a heroic effort to understand and encourage the individual being treated. We need a health care system that provides better rewards and incentives for physicians like Dr. Kahan, but until that occurs, Dr. Kahan can at least have the satisfaction of going home every day knowing that he is improving many lives.

The best. I was introduced to Dr. Kahan when I went to GWU Weight Management Clinic for help in losing weight. I lost it, all of it, and Dr. Kahan was one of the primary reasons. He understands the program, and he guides you through it with knowledge, intelligence, wit, and a realistic attitude rarely seen in top flight doctors. I could not recommend him more highly.

Scott Kahan is top notch. Medically, he is very knowledgeable about the latest research and approaches. Clinically, he is extremely thorough and careful. And on a personal level he is really engages with his patients--he spends enough time with them to understand how their medical issues affect their lifes and vice versa. As a rseult, I have found his medical advice to be very practical, calibrated to my personal ciecumstances--and thus more likely to be effective.

Dr. Kahan is a fabulous doctor. He communicates complex concepts clearly, using simple, memorable concepts. He responds promptly to patient inquiries, using staff for support rather than as a shield as some docs do. He has extensive experience in weight management issues and is wonderful as a counselor. No matter whether I've lost weight or completely fallen off my plan, I always, always have a good experience a appointments with him and I always, always leave feeling confident and supported in my efforts, with new ideas and easily embraceable concepts. I lost over 35 lbs in less than 3 months under his guidance, and my journey is continuing. I expect to continue working with him consistently, albeit less frequently, in future years as I manage my weight issues at my goal weight.

Dr Kahan is a rarity in the world these days - a doctor who genuinely cares about his patients as individuals, takes the time that each patient needs, actively listens to his patients, and seeks their participation and input in treatment decisions. His clinical skills are top notch, and his "bedside manner" beyond compare. Although at times appointments can run off schedule, generally no more than 10 min, it is because of the individual attention each patient receives - and I have no problem with a little longer wait because I receive that personal experience every time. I cannot recommend Dr. Kahan strongly enough, as a clinician, a caregiver, and an individual.

Dr. Kahan and the staff at the George Washington Weight Management Program have been essential in not only helping me to lose weight and engage in a more healthful lifestye but in helping me to understand my life path as well. Through the guidance of Dr. Kahan I have gone from wanting to combat my obesity and emotional eating through strict discipline and self-hatred to understanding food addiction as a symptom of the larger problem of unhappiness. The practical weight management strategies provided by Dr. Kahan have helped me to maintain a 45 pound weight loss two years after an initial loss of 60 pounds. While it is always a temptation to use food as a crutch, the genius of Kahan and the George Washington program is that they teach you how to naturally begin to use more positive stress reducers while helping you to maintain a positive self-image when you relapse. Dr. Kahan helps to foster an environment of acceptance and support essential to managing weight in a positive manner. -Adam Brown
