IN MEMORIAM: MAX KAHN, MD, one of our founding physicians, died suddenly on September 12, 2019.
Along with Michael Levi, Max started the practice in a small office on 86th Street almost forty years ago. With their hard work and medical expertise, the practice has grown into the premier academic pediatric practice in NYC.
Max grew up in Burlington Vermont, did his undergraduate education at Harvard and medical school at Columbia. He went on to pediatric residency at Jacobi- Bronx Municipal where he first met Michael Levi. Together they opened an office at a time when there were virtually no pediatricians on the Upper West Side; at the same time working 3-4 part-time jobs to pay the rent.
Max worked part time teaching pediatric residents at NYU/Bellevue for years until a heart attack forced him to retire from teaching. He continued for 25+ years, caring for thousands of families.
His impact will endure on a generation of Upper Westsiders.
