I have been a patient of Dr. Kahan for a number of years and he is one of the rare doctors who gives 200% to his patients. He and his team are by far the most caring group of health professionals I have worked with. Working with Dr. Kahan has been a life-changing experience and I have been able to accomplish weight loss I did not believe possible. Cannot recommend him more highly.
Great doctor, top-notch custom care

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 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.
