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.

Horrible bedside manner, dismisses concerns, does not listen, annoyed by any questions and arrogant....more

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.
