There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

He was dismissive of my chronic health condition, a debilitating anxiety disorder. He said he would only recommend treating my anxiety as help for my extreme ongoing nausea. He was NOT helpful. He also gave me no information about the medication he prescribed for constipation. The prescription increased my nausea when I took it bc he didn't explain that I had to take it with food.

Good: Dr. Kahn's analysis of my condition was more comprehensive and diagnostically thorough than I've experienced in two years with the condition. Probably in the right direction now (fingers crossed).
