Dr. Scott I Kahan has the following 1 specialty
- Preventive Medicine
A preventive medicine/wellness specialist is a physician who, through additional training, has become an expert in methods for maintaining good health and preventing disease. These specialists are the doctors people see when they are generally well or without a specific ailment and want to either learn how to maintain their current health or acquire better health.
These doctors will advise patients on specific diets, exercise regimens, and lifestyle habits that are suited to their particular needs. Preventive medicine/wellness specialists take into account a patient's nutrition deficiencies, physical and cardiovascular capabilities, and habits in order to advise specific vitamins and supplements to take, how much physical activity to undertake, and which habits should be broken and replaced with more positive behavior.

I was a long time patient who worked with the previous practice and the experience only improved with Dr Kahan's leadership. He was great in not only working with my GP and other docs to consult and develop custom plans to meet my needs but was great after I moved away from the DC area in helping as I resettled to find a new health care team. I highly recommend!
Dr. Kahan is a shining exemplar of compassion and brilliance. He cares deeply about his patients and is interested in getting to know you as a complete person, rather than simply as a particular medical issue. His friendliness and charisma make it easy to talk with him. Dr. Kahan will go above and beyond to help you and his broad-based, wide-ranging knowledge, ensures that you will receive the best, most comprehensive care possible.
Dr. Kahan is a wonderful doctor and has helped me immeasurably. I have tried and failed with so many programs to lose weight- I was extremely frustrated and about to give up when I came to see him. He really takes the time to listen and to try to figure out what is going on and comes up with ideas and solutions that are reasonable and doable. He contacted another Dr. I had seen about a possible explanation for why I was always hungry after exercising. No one had ever made the effort to figure that out before. He has a very calming manner and is not judgmental. I highly recommend Dr. Kahan.
Scott Kahan and his team at NCWW provide first-rate medical service that focuses on weight-management and related wellness issues. In my experience, patients receive individualized attention and exceptional support with their diverse health problems. There are no magic solutions in this medical area, which has more than its share of fads that ultimately are unsuccessful. Dr. Kahan offers great support and encouragement in a long-term context. I highly recommend his services.
