Does not listen, does not return messages. Ignores patient's past medical history and treatments that have worked. Would rather let patient bleed internally than admit she may be wrong. STAY AWAY FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY.

Colonoscopy which fully prepped for. Apt @1:30p. Ahn called very early that morning- knowing that was up all night evacuating bowels to prep- to say I must cancel if couldn't come by 11a. Then, Ahn only did 1/3 of test- said I need '2 day prep' although colon obv clean on monitor to at least point she got to. Fine. Starved self next day again & Ahn cancelled again using excuse 'lack of prep,' obviously a lie since just prepped another day- eg, '2 day prep.' Unprofessional & not patient centered.
