I liked Dr. Kahn from the get-go! She listened to everything I told her about my issue. It is evident that she is an expert in my type of issue. The information she shared as she analyzed me was invaluable. The first thing that impressed me the most is that we are proceeding in a conservative type of treatment. I was scared to death in coming here that it would be a press to a surgery. Her approach is not that at all. I appreciated her knowledge, her manner in working with me and the advice and sheets of exercises she provided. She shared with me a jaw exercise device that she created for my specific issue. I have been using it and it has helped. That is impressive! I left my appointment with a plan in place. I look forward to working thru this issue with her guidance. I was also appreciative of her time. For my initial appointment, she had me down for an hour appointment and she gave me the whole hour of her time. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Dr Kahn took extra effort to consult with specialists in head and neck when she noted a lesion in my CT scan. She showed the image to me from various viewpoints. She met with the appointment staff person to ensure I would be seen as quickly as possible. She also personally did the impressions of my teeth rather than delegating that to another worker.
