Dr. Ankamah puts you right at ease. He gets right to the problem and his solutions have worked well for me. He was recommended to me by my neurologist and I couldn't be happier.

Dr. Ankamah has provided superior service to several members of my family, beginning with my mother-in-law and then my wife. He effectively addressed issues I had with my knee. I especially appreciated that he explored conservative treatment modalities prior to considering more aggressive options. I have been pain-free for months!!! I highly recommend him.

I went there as I was refered by my PCP. Since I was in severe pain, I went for a couple of visits without thinking much. I was less than impressed. I feel better thanks to my Physical Therapist, but on a subsequent visit I raised a few other issues I have and he couldn't answer my basic questions and brushed them aside. At this point I doubt either the professionalism, or worse yet the competence.
