Dr. Amankwah is an awesome surgeon. He is smart with a great attitude and outstanding bedside manner. He is very thorough with his explanations and answered all my questions and concerns. I was very fortunate to have him as my doctor/surgeon when I was diagnosed with an aneurysm in my iliac artery.
