Patient Comments (1)
in Glendale, CA |
I am retired Police Officer who has a very serious vascular illness. I had seen a Dr. at USC who was irresponsible and wanted to do surgery immediately. What a deadly mistake that would of been. I found Dr. Ahn to be excellent. He read all of my records, asked me questions and allowed me to ask him questions. He felt that the best thing for me to do is to wait and see if I got any worse, which is the best way to treat my illness. I highly recommend this Doctor. The staff was outstanding.
