in Chino, CA |
My dad was suffering from severe neck, shoulder & arm pain with numbness & weakness in his hands. He was admitted to a Hosp. (NOT PIH Hosp.) and was there for 3 days. We got fed up because they told my dad there was nothing they could do for him. Dr. Aho heard of my dads situation & immediately had him transferred to PIH Hosp. After talking to my dad, Dr. Aho ordered an MRI and the following morning my dad was having his neck surgery. Dr. Aho cured him & dad went home free of pain & happy.

I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Aho to friends and relatives because his is a great doctor with an excellent background and training. He performed a very complicated, lengthy back surgery on me. I had numerous problems that he talked to me about and options. I finally decided to have the surgery and I am doing extremely well -- never thought I would ever be the good again! Thanks to Dr. Aho!!!!
