Dr. Ryan performed arthoscopic surgery on my husband's knee supposedly to remove bone chips to prevent or forestall a full knee replacement. Well, his staff never bothered to request confirmation of coverage with our insurance company for the MRI that he ordered (as his office isrequired to do) and we ended up paying over $1,200 out of pocket for it. Then Dr. Ryan didn't remove all the bones fragments and he never mentioned or treated the underlying arthritis that my husband wasn't aware of until he had more pain after that surgery and started seeing other doctors about it. So the surgery did not accomplish anything and in fact made things worse and my husband is in desperate need of a knee replacement because of the pain. When my husband went back to discuss the continuing pain he was eventually rebuffed and without even doing any independent examination, Dr. Ryan's insurer has decided to stand behind him and won't pay to correct his errors.

Completely misdiagnosed my shoulder pain. Performed surgery, which only exacerbated the situation. After getting a second opinion, I found out that Dr. Ryan was only treating the symptoms, not the actual problem. The procedures he did during surgery is what you would do for a 70 year old, not someone who is 26. While the office staff is friendly, for several appointments I had to wait over an hour past my appointment time. To end the appt, Dr. Ryan will start walking out of the room while talking to you, forcing the end of the appt. I won't ever go back to Dr. Ryan and would reccomend others to stay away.
June 13th, 2008Good at diagnosing and care, arrogant rude bedside manner at end of visit
Dr. Ryan did a very good job diagnosing, but was demeaning in bedside manner. It's a shame, because he seemed like an answer to a prayer, in that he ordered the correct diagnostic tests to diagnose a long standing problem that no one else had bothered to diagnose correctly. So in that regard, he was very good. Maybe the following is not so important in the big picture, because the quality of care seemed good, better than we had experienced. When I tried to talk to him after the diagnosis, he became arrogant and demeaning, honestly if the visit hadn't been important for health reasons, I would have walked out. It is a shame how many specialists have a need to belittle or humiliate patients who are feeling vulnerable and needy. This guy definitely was rude and power hungry at the end, which is unfortunate.
