So rude that I truly believe his attitude is harmful to patients. Simply deplorable. There is no reason to treat people with such aggressive disrespect.

Hello everyone, I'm so excited that I was referred to Dr. Gahn. The scheduling was a breeze. I was seen the week after my referral. His staff was very courteous. Dr. Gahn was amazing. I had an ESI and he was quick, new exactly what he was doing, and was compassionate before and during the procedure. I've had 6 injections so far on my spinal journey and Dr. Gahn was the 4th pain management Dr. I have seen. He explained the problem and the procedure. I will recommend him to everyone I know. Love

The worse, Not only did he maybe say two words about why he chose the shot he chose, when I told him exactly which one helped me in the past. After the shot I had much more pain than before I went to see him. He said well lets try it again, I did and once again much more pain. Asked for pain meds, no to that. I asked we only have one more shot for the year. I would like to have the other snrb that helped me before. He insisted on the shots that were causing more pain. Run from this one!
