What People Say About Dr. Andrew Ankamah, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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.
