What People Say About Dr. Duke Ahn, MD

Dr. Ahn is a wonderful doctor. I was referred to him by my PCP & have been so happy with him. I'm afraid of shots & was given a cortisone shot in my elbow to ease a bone spur irritation. I didn't even feel it. He also performed rotator cuff surgery on me when I tore it a while back. I have recovered 100% & know many people who still have problems after surgery, but I have had no issues & highly recommend him to anyone. His assistant, Steven, is also fantastic. Highly respect & admire him. A+++++

I was referred to Dr. Ahn for surgery on my arm after reviewing that I had severe problems with my arm after an MRI and much pain. Before considering surgery Dr. Ahn suggested I try a different route first of a cortisone shot and physical therapy. He worked with me with appointments and caring attitude. He was verbally clear and concise confirming I understood all options. Long story short, I did not need surgery thanks to him caring enough to take the best action for me. Thank you!

I think Dr. Ahn knows his stuff, but his office support team is miserable. It's almost impossible to get to his assistant, Steven. I set an appointment to get measured for a knee brace and when I went to the office, it was closed for the whole day. No call, no apology. I finally called the business manager to get Steven to follow-up. He finally did, but now i can't get him to respond to when my brace might be ready. Really an awful place to get good service.
