Dr. Ankamah is a personable and generous doctor. He listens to everything you tell him so he is well informed of your injury and level of pain. He is extremely thorough in coming up with the best treatment or therapy to manage your healing. He is a kind and gentle professional and his staff is the same. They are always helpful and accommodating. I have recommended my friends to Dr. Ankamah and will continue to do so in the future. He took excellent care to get me pain free and completely recovered. He is an asset to his profession. A wonderful doctor.

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.

Paul R. – Oct 10, 2019
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.
