Patient Comments (4)

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...more

awful doc im suffering in chronic pain and he would rather see me die then treat me for my pain i think its sick. Please stay away from this evil man. Also his medical facts are wrong atleast when he spoke to me so send him back to med school.

People are dying from opioid addiction all over the U.S. It is wrong for a patient with no medical degree to tell the doctor the only medication that works is narcotic medication. I have the duty to prevent narcotic addiction and abuse as directed by the government. We did not prescribe what you demanded, because you were seeking narcotic medication not required for your condition. Dr. Ankamah has superb medical training from top institutions in the U.S. I am super-qualified and Board Certified.

Joyce we have 15 minutes turn around time which is above national standards. Sometimes, we get slightly behind if we have urgent cases or if patients report late. In your case, to my recollection you came late which affected your wait time. You are responsible for coming in late and not the fault of the doctors. We spend sufficient time with our patients so that you are well cared for. We answer all questions, unlike other offices where you are rushed out and your questions unanswered. Not us!
