victim of this jerk

The most horrible person ever. I can't even call him the "D" word. If you want a person to do surgery on you and not care what the outcome is, he is your man. Had a nerve stimulator put in by him and it shocked me from the 1st day to the day it was taken out. When it was taken out it had pierced my sciatic nerve with both leads. Thanks you jerk! Now, years later I have even more problems. Be careful, if he's late to your surgery or air headed, dosen't know anything about you. I consider myself lucky now, I can still walk. You might not be so lucky.

Doctor Review

Making the statement that Dr. Cahn has poor "bedside-manners" is an understatement. He is like an Army drill sergeant; so if you don't like a little man with a big attitude drilling you and telling you what to do, go somewhere else. He will not provide you with treatment options, possible negative side effects or enough information to make an informed decision. Nor will he make any attempt to let you actively participate in your health care decisions, So, if you care about your health you will take the time to look for another doctor.

The wait time was too the long two times I saw him and he didn't discuss labs or treatment with me. He just wrote a prescription and out the door I went.

Dr. Cahn was very thorough and spent time going over his findings and my options. He showed a sense of humor that created a relaxing environment. He showed a real concern and set-up a follow-up visit to make sure all was going well with me.

Too controlling and inflexible. If you trust doctors and want them to tell you what to do, he is your guy. But if you want to be responsible for and actively participate in your health care decisions, go somewhere else. Dr. Cahn did not provide treatment options or enough information for me to intelligently decide which options were best for me. Instead, he decided what I needed and gave me orders and prescriptions, without discussing side effects or other downsides. I called him on the weekend with a problem with his treatment device, which wasn't working properly. Instead of offering options, he told me to wait a day and call back if problems persisted. Shortly thereafter I started to bleed and had to go to the emergency room. It happened because he didn't listen to me and credit what he was being told. This suggests he doesn't trust his patients. I promptly found another doctor and would not go to him again. I later got a copy of his treatment notes, which contained three inaccurate statements about my medical history, which were based on assumptions rather than facts.
