I have never met such a rude doctor. He spent maybe 2 minutes with me before telling me I wouldn't be a fit for his practice, and walking out the door, no goodbye, just shutting the door on me. He had over a year of medical records, disability reports and a referral from an ortho surgeon and he still wouldn't look at anything. Actually told me "maybe your disability attorney can treat you". (I've been on disability for over 15 years, so apparently I have something wrong). I have never left a doctor's office feeling so bad, this man treated me like I did something wrong. I couldn't even explain my injury or my pain, nothing, I'm telling you it was 2 minutes of him putting me down. Nobody should be treated like that.

The staff is very friendly and made my visit comforting. Dr Henry is very attentive and all ears! He made sure he confirmed his understanding of my pain to me and if he had it right. He discussed all my options with me. I found him to be VERY HONEST. My shoulder pain has improved remarkably. He is the best! You will be happy you met him. He even remembered my kids names, OMG!! I feel like I can talk to him freely about anything.

I am not originally from Maryland coming up from Georgia in 2016. I needed to connect with a pain management doctor to continue my treatments. I was given a list of doctors from the Omni Clinic and I selected Dr. Henry Achampong. I am so glad I did he is an awesome and caring doctor. His mannerisms is super, he listens to his patients, and he gets to the root of the problem. I would highly recommend him to family and friends. Thank you Dr. Achampong for taking care of me and my pains.

I like Dr Henry and trust him 100%. He is knowledgeable, has patience and a great bedside manner. I would recommend him to any friend or family. I warn them tho of the attitude you can receive at the front desk, which is why I gave 4 stars. I understand that they have probably had calls all day from clients trying to get more medications, I'm sure they have heard every excuse in the book, however I am not one of those people so please don't treat me like I am.

I have been seeing Dr Henry Achampong for 2 years. He has taken me from the point I couldn't walk to the point now where I am speed walking. He has an amazing bedside manner, and has been very patient with me. Always trying new procedures so I can reach my goal. The staff he has working for him, makes for a family like atmosphere.
