I hope others report their long term outcomes with this surgeon. Yes, he dismisses concerns, is annoyed with questions, etc. But four months after surgery, my hand is not good. At my final appointment, he suddenly diagnosed me with a “rare, genetic” disorder, seemingly to explain a bad surgical outcome. Said this disorder makes fingers curl. My only "curling" finger is one he put screws in. Now I'm headed to UI. Also, Board of Medicine pays attention when many complain about bedside manner

Go elsewhere for carpal tunnel surgery. I saw Dr. Han for maybe 5 min and he was so rude. My hand still hurts. Worst of all refused to give me any time off. I worked in a factory, I could not use my hands! I feel this ruined my recovery.

Do not go to Han. Find a different hand surgeon.. I was referred to him by urgent care and regret not simply going elsewhere. He may be a competent practitioner, but he is the worst kind of doctor. Horrible bedside manner, dismisses concerns, does not listen, annoyed by any questions and arrogant. Isn't focused on your injury and rambles on about other things. Gives an otherwise good clinic a bad name.
Please call 515-323-6371 if you wish to further discuss your experience.

This guy should NOT be practicing medicine. Like another person said he could careless what you have to say and makes a mockery of your injury. If your referred to him demand ANOTHER Dr. This guy is a joke.

I had excellent results with Dr. Han. He is professional, has a wonderful bedside manner, and I wouldn't recommend any other hand surgeon.

I had broke my scaphoid bone and Dr. Han was awesome! He kept an eye on it throughout the healing process.
Each time I have been seen by Dr. Han he does not listen to concerns and does not diagnose the root cause of the pain. He gives you 10 minutes of his time tops and sends you on your way without any thorough explanations on what steps are next to relieve the pain. There are plenty of other ortho surgeons in the Des Moines area that have 5 star ratings. There is a reason you have a 2.6 star rating.
