I just had my first appointment with Dr. Oppong and he was lovely! He understands full body/rare conditions and had excellent bedside manner. He even called his neurosurgeon friend for us while we were there to discuss my case and send me to the right person to fix my problem, instead of just putting a bandaid over it! His staff has been very kind and helpful in getting my records to where they need to go! They fit me in as an emergency and got me in fast. Five stars all around!

I have been using Dr. Oppong for about 2 years now since moving from NJ to MD. While in NJ I had a bad experience with a Pain Management doctor there and was quite cautious about getting any more injections in my back. I now have complete confidence with Dr. Oppong when getting my injections. Glad I found him.................R Johnson

Please save yourself the tears disappointment. This man has a argumental way of speaking at you and not to you..He believes he is a level above his patients. He is only in it for the money. The man has no compassion...I hope you find a different doctor . God Bless You And Yours

All I wanted was to get some relief for my neck and back so i could start exercising again and also physical therapy but it seems light he would rather give me a a steroid shot in my neck he makes around 2 grand in 10 minutes .Just wish he would of offer other options like maybe physical therapy and also he gives me enough pain medicine to keep me in pain all day ? 1 narcotic acetaminophen before bed does not cover my day time pain so its hard to go for walk and stretch .I have had better DRs

Great pain management doctor. He helped me recover from major surgery with a true caring nature that is hard to find. He is also proactive in all my health care needs, even beyond what he is required to do. He has been a true blessing for me and our community. Kudos and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Awesome doctor. Very knowledgeable and good listener. Explained my condition well. Minimized my narcotic medication and told me about the importance of physical therapy and routine exercise. I'm glad I bought into his philosophy
