      He was 2 hours late. his intern came in my room after waiting 30 inside the room which took 2 hours to get into. I had to keep telling them I am 1 1/2 hours from my sons school and I need to pick him up. Finally dr. An came in told me to do pilates and yoga. I was in shock. I was a personal trainer, taught yoga, and exercised regularly until the last 2 years because of my pain. I could not walk. I went to see 2 more surgeons and they said I need fusion right away. more to say no room

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. An's Care Philosophy

      What I do mostly at Rush is really taking care of patients with various spinal problems. Just because patients come to see me in my office, that doesn't mean that all discussion is restrict to surgery. We have various options: non-surgical, surgical. So that's how we make the patients at ease by discussing different options. My philosophy of patient care is, first of all, really treat each and every patient with respect. And also treat all patients like your own family members. This means listening to their medical history very carefully and coming out with treatment recommendations that have best possible outcomes.
