Kahn Longevity Proven: How Their Greedy Practices Affect Their Reputation
Kahn Longevity Center is a holistic cardiology clinic based in Bingham Farms, Michigan. It is located at 31500 Telegraph Rd #215, Bingham Farms, MI 48025, US, and its contact number is 248-731-7412.
Initially, it seems like any other ordinary clinic. However, this place doesn’t accept insurance, charges hundreds of dollars for consultations, and refrains from taking any responsibility.
In the following review, I’ll explain the shady terms and conditions present in this clinic’s agreements which it uses to exploit consumers.
Who is Dr. Joel Kahn From Kahn Longevity Center?
Dr. Joel Kahn runs the Kahn Longevity Center aka The Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity. He is a cardiologist who received his medical degree from the University of Michigan.
Dr. Joel Kahn’s Instagram handle is Dr. J Kahn where he has developed quite a large following. At the time of writing this article, he has nearly 63,000 followers on Dr. Joel Kahn’s Instagram page.
Dr. Joel Kahn calls himself America’s Healthy Heart Doc. However, his business practices say otherwise.
On his website, he highlights that he is the world’s first physician to get a certification in Metabolic Cardiology from a major University medical center. He also boasts of providing the most advanced detection and treatment center for treating heart diseases at Kahn Longevity Center.
However, what he doesn’t highlight on his website is how he promotes himself on social media.
Dr. Kahn, to put it simply, relies on manipulative media and false information to promote his brand. On the website of Kahn Longevity Center, he claims to be a cardiologist. But on his personal website (drjoelkahn.com) he offers anti-aging and disease reversal through plant-based integrative medicine.
Keep in mind, those two things are completely unrelated.
His website is a mini “Dr. Joel Kahn Wikipedia page” but it doesn’t share Dr. Joel Kahn’s age or Dr. Joel Kahn’s date of birth, which is approximately 62 years.
Apart from this, there isn’t much personal information available about this ‘holistic cardiologist’.
Kahn Longevity Center Doesn’t Accept Insurance: Services and Red Flags
The first red flag on Kahn Longevity Center’s website is on its Programs page. This place claims to offer “an advanced level of care beyond what insurers dictate”. In other words, the procedures you can get at this cardiology clinic haven’t received approval from any insurance company.
In other words, the procedures available at Kahn Longevity Center are unproven and hence, dangerous.
The clinic has mentioned that it doesn’t accept insurance payments for office visits in all caps:
They point out that you must pay for all visits at the time of service or before. Furthermore, the costs of these visits aren’t very small either.
The first one-hour consultation with Dr. John Kahn costs $500. Similarly, all follow-up visits cost $250 for half an hour.
That’s not all.
Dr. Kahn offers a platitude of ‘comprehensive evaluations” which you can only pay through cash. He offers the Ultimate Heart Check-Up which consists of 2 visits where the first one is 1 hour while the next one is 30 minutes and can be virtual. Along with the visits, you get a Carotid Intimal Medial Thickness (CIMT) exam.
The entire package costs $999 which you must pay out of pocket. What’s more surprising is that no other cardiologist offers this service. It is unique to Dr. John Kahn.
He also offers “GAINSwave low-intensity shock wave therapy for erectile dysfunction along with his cardiology services. This is an unproven therapy that doesn’t have any backing from research or studies.
Also, it is one of the few services that you can only avail of at Kahn Longevity Center. No other cardiology clinic offers these services, maybe because they don’t work.
Kahn Longevity Center Takes Cash But Requires Insurance for Other Procedures
When you hire Kahn Longevity Center for any services, you must pay Dr. Kahn in cash. However, if you require any medical services such as a test, you will need to have insurance.
According to the clinic, the fees they charge don’t cover any medical costs. It only covers the ‘personalized services and enhanced access’ he offers in the program. The clinic requires you to have insurance for any medical visits or hospital services.
Your insurance wouldn’t cover your ‘membership fees’ of the Kahn Longevity Center which is a minimum of $250. Keep in mind that it’s not a small sum.
An additional red flag in the services of Kahn Longevity Center is that his personalized services aren’t sufficient for your treatment. Their website says that some patients might require supplements to achieve their health goals. What supplements you might ask.
Dr. Joel Kahn sells many supplements to his clients including Dr. Joel Kahn’s superfoods. You get supplements for nearly every ailment imaginable at his store including his signature “Dr. Joel Kahn blood pressure” remedies.
Basically, Kahn Longevity Center charges you hundreds of dollars to see Dr. Kahn. But for any actual medical services, you need to carry health insurance. Furthermore, the clinic might sell you expensive supplements which again, you must pay for from your own pocket.
These supplements aren’t medicine because if they were, your insurer would pay for them. Dr. Kahn blames insurance companies for it but certainly, not every insurer would hold a grudge against one doctor, right?
Dr. Kahn Takes No Responsibility if You Are in a Medical Emergency
When you work with a physician, one of his biggest responsibilities is to help you during medical emergencies. Especially when they own a clinic.
Kahn Longevity Center takes over $500 as its membership fee but takes no responsibility if you face a medical emergency. The clinic says that you must go to your nearest hospital if you get sick.
Furthermore, Dr. Kahn might not even visit you. He might simply act as a “consultant” through teleconferencing or phone.
If you can’t rely on your doctor during a medical emergency, is he really a doctor?
This is why you should go through the disclaimers a doctor makes you sign before availing of his services. Dr. Kahn avoids taking any responsibility for his patients and his clinic fails to help his clients during serious emergencies.
He claims to be a doctor but doesn’t act like one.
On the website of Kahn Longevity Center, he claims that more physicians will start offering the services he offers as patient dissatisfaction grows. That’s completely false.
The primary reason why other physicians don’t offer the services he claims to offer is that his services are unproven and aren’t backed by science. He accepts cash because insurance companies don’t approve of his unproven methodologies.
Dr. Joel Kahn blames the entire medical community for his drawbacks which is the laziest excuse one can give.
Kahn Longevity Center claims to be a cardiology center that cares about its patients. However, the various clauses present in its agreements indicate that its sole priority is to fill the pockets of Dr. Joel Kahn.
From selling supplements to providing medically unproven services, this clinic indulges in plenty of unethical practices.
Furthermore, it seems as if Dr. Joel Kahn is taking advantage of his “social media celebrity” status to squeeze money out of common people’s pockets. Unless you have thousands of dollars to waste, I don’t recommend this cardiology center.
Kahn Longevity Center is among the greediest medical establishments in the region. It doesn’t accept insurance for its expensive consultations, refrains from taking responsibility and targets vulnerable people. Avoid this scam at all costs!
- Extremely greedy
- Taking advantage of heart disease patients
- Unethical terms and conditions
I have heard of this doctor before. He doesn’t trust any doctor except himself. I don’t think such distrust comes from expertise.
I didn’t see any results after seeing Dr Kahn for a year. Not recommended.
Dr Kahn acts very nice but his treatment hasn’t done anything for me. I feel scammed.
It IS a scam. Kahn Longevity Center cannot accept insurance on most of its services because they are not legitimate. I agree with some of the reviews calling him a quack. It might be hard to accept but that’s the truth. You should see an actual doctor, not Kahn.
Visited this clinic a few weeks ago…found out they don’t accept any insurance. Only Cash.
Not recommended. They seem too suspicious.
I have been seeing Dr Kahn for more than 2 yrs. I went to him for a 2nd opinion on a genetic cholesterol disorder I have. He has been working with me diligently to rectify my issues.
It appears that some of these reviewers have never even had a conversation with him. While he doesn’t accept insurance I submit my claims and get a partial refund from my insurance. A small price for such wonderful care. I would recommend doing your own research before accepting claims as truth
Dr. KAHN IS NOT A DOCTOR. HE IS A SWINDLER.
The man lied for months to my dad. He is old and has been suffering from heart disease.
I don’t know how he found about this quack but he got very hopeful.
This quack kept lying to him, giving him false hope.
My poor father kept spending his retirement savings on this guy. He thought Kahn will help him get better. Obviously it didn’t do anything.
Kahn kept making money out of that poor, ill old man without feeling any guilt or remorse.
I don’t recommend Kahn Longevity Center to anyone.
Kahn Longevity Center should be shut down. My dad used to go there. Kahn squeezed him dry and then told him to shoo off. He is a heart patient and fell for the sugary words and false promises of this scammer. This guy should not be running a clinic
This so sad. This man is toying with other people’s lives. He should not be allowed to treat patients. At best, we should raise awareness against this doctor.
My mother has fallen prey to this man’s antics. She believes Kahn Longevity Center will fix her problems even though Kahn hasn’t done anything except take our money. There is a special place in hell for people like him.
I have visited this clinic a few times. Dr. Kahn is very knowledgeable but he didn’t seem very reliable. It felt like he only cared about the bills and not my health. I didn’t see results from his treatments either. So yeah, i don’t recommend him.
This seems fishy. Shouldn’t it be illegal for licensed medical practitioners to offer “alternative medicine”-based services like Kahn Longevity Center does?
Joel is literally putting the lives of his clients at risk by mixing up actual medicine with his quackery. This is NOT okay.
I agree. But I gotta say, he is not ‘that’ knowledgeable. The man is a quack 😂
I have nothing against this guy but the fact that he doesn’t accept insurance for “certain services” bugs me a lot. He is a doctor, for sure but he is also a quack.
The man is selling his quack services packaged with authentic medical checkups which is like the worst thing i have seen a doctor do. And trust me, I have seen doctors do a lot of horrible things.
It’s people like Dr. Joel Kahn which give a bad name to the medical industry. He is making people afraid of authentic and tested medical procedures so he can charge them $500 for a consultation.
