OUR TEAM

rs=w_600,cg_true.webp

Dr Kahane has wanted to become a physician since the age of 3. Very few children complete grade school, middle school, high school, and beyond with a singular career vision in mind. However, Dr. Kahane never wavered from his dream to become a physician.

 

From kindergarten straight through to medical school, Dr. Kahane never took any time off to achieve his aspirations. He completed his medical school at Ross University School of Medicine in 2015 and became an established member of the Bradenton community by becoming a part of the first ever residency class at Blake Medical Center.

 

While there he served 1 year as Chief Internal Medicine resident.  He is proficient in complex patient care, autoimmune diseases, and everyday medical concerns. Dr. Kahane is fluent in both English and Spanish and is excited to join the Ellenton Urgent Care team.

 

In his spare time Dr Kahane enjoys the beach, water sports, politics, watching football, and spending time with his dog.
