Knows nothing about migraines or epilepsy. Prescribes meds that throw off your balance so intensely you can't walk anywhere without holding onto walls and objects and never helps the problem. He then tells you to find a pain doctor instead of him. He is supposed to be a neurologist that deals with neurological issues, including migraine and seizure disorders but he cant. Don't waste your time and money. Just find a knowledgeable neurologist that can help you rather than embarrass your.

It is difficult to write a review without bias considering the experience I’ve received by Dr. Ahn and his staff. Today I was turned away from my appointment, not for the lack of insurance or failure to meeting my deductible, but rather a small hiccup which has occurred in my family’s company-provided insurance plan. This includes both with several letters in hand from the actual insurance company and despite being a patient for almost two years and having 4 seizures since my last appointment.

This doctor mind is there, but his heart isn't no where near connected! That alone isn't a good combination, and nor good thing! Far from being a people's preferred physician! My visit with him was a complete: waste of time, energy, interest, expectation, investment, and yes Lord, a waste of tax payers money!

My current Neurologist closed his office. Dr. Ahn would not see me without a referral and my records. Those were faxed to his office and the office staff never bothered to call me. I found another Neurologist to see, but Dr. Ahn's lovely (enter sarcasm here) staff would not fax my records to the new Neurologist, nor would they give me the copies to take to the new Neurologist. BEWARE of this one.

I love Dr. Ahn and also his office and staff. He is extremely patient, and kind. He is a doctor who puts you at ease immediately because of his knowledge and demeanor.. It is very hard for me to find such a doctor since I am now on medicare. I have and will continue to highly recommend him. He listens and explains everything with professionalism, but also in a way that is very easy to understand.. I have complete trust in him.
