Patient Comments (5)

I wouldn't recommend anyone using Dr conner. Doesn't return phone calls. His office staff didn't even bother to call and let me know that my post op appointment had been cancelled and my husband even called to verify my appointment earlier that day so I ended up driving roundtrip for an hour.

Dr. Ryan Conner recently performed bilateral breast biopsies on me. From the beginning, he was extremely compassionate and it's evident how dedicated he is to not only his job, but each case he leads. He took a copious amount of time reading over and talking to me about my family history and...more

Saw Dr. Conner about 2 yrs ago for what I thot was a sebaceous cyst on my scalp. He thot it looked suspicious to him and wanted to do a biopsy. Turns out it was skin cancer. He did the surgery to remove it and everything was good. No complaints whatsoever!

Dr Conner told me my only option was to have surgery, without even doing a thorough examination on me. I decided to get a 2nd opinion.

I hate that you have had a bad experience!! I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to know what I suggested you had surgery for and review the other surgeons assessment. I am always willing to learn from others. I hope that you are doing well and please accept my apology as I would never want you to undergo a potentially unnecessary procedure. Again please call my office so I can review your case and make sure I fully understand if I have made a mistake.
