I have nothing but positive things to say about *Dr. Kawash. He is extremely professional, an expert in his field, and a good, quality person. Vanderbilt should be very proud to have him on staff and do whatever it takes to keep him.

Dr Kahwash is an amazing doctor. You feel comfortable asking any and all questions. He answers them at a level in which you can understand, and talks to my son, the patient, directly and with interest. He is truly one of a kind, everything you would want in a doctor for your son.

The resident was kind, and listened but the supervising MD did not listen or care at all. He belittled me and did not take any time to offer any benefit at all!

Dr. Kahwash is a brilliant and approachable physician His ability to assimilate all the complex records and personal history I provided, offer a critical analysis of my diagnosis, and provide a treatment plan was exceptional!I was also impressed with the medication he prescribed was available by the time we came home. Additionally, the day after my appointment, he personally reached out to me and coordinated with two of my local providers to establish new orders.
