Have you seen Dr. Ann I Ma?
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Ann I Ma - Posted on September 19th, 2017
I have had two colonoscopies with Dr. Ma and will not be returning. Her first question to me on my first visit was "How are your poops?" which I found very unprofessional. She also informed me that I was fat, no debate there, but there are more delicate ways of relaying that message. The procedure went well, no problems there, but her bedside manner leaves much to be desired. This past winter when I went back to her, her first comment was that I was a Medicare patient and she really didn't like taking Medicare because she wasn't paid enough for them. I reminded her that I was a returning patient and that nothing had been said when I made the appointment. She huffed and puffed, then told me that I was fat and should eat better. Again, the procedure went well, but I will not be returning to be insulted and demeaned again. When discussing with someone else Dr. Ma's attitude, this person who is acquainted with her was surprised that she was still practicing and commented that they thought Dr. Ma had stopped practicing to spend more time with her horses. Sounds like something Dr. Ma should consider since she does not seem to be very good at interacting with her patients.
Unprofessional, Rude, and missed an important health issue.

If I could giver her a zero I would. She starts off as a nice and understanding dr. on your first visit and when you follow-up after your procedure, she is extremely rude and condescending. I was dealing with extreme health issues and it turns out that my stomach was collapsed and she didn't even notice while performing the endoscopy! A couple of friends were talking about how rude our gastro was and found out, we went to Anne Ma! Avoid at all costs.
It's that time again....

Nine years ago I had my first colonoscopy with Dr. Ma. I am about to undergo my second - with Dr. Ma. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else. Dr. Ma is wonderful doctor, top notch I must say. She has a straight forward manner which I appreciate immensely. She is kind and interested in her patients. I did not wait very long to begin my appointment, 10 minutes - which is truly unusual regarding wait times with other doctors. In other words, her staff knows the appropriate time required when scheduling appointments. I appreciated Dr. Ma's honesty, professional manner, and the confidence I felt when I attended the pre-procedure appointment nine years ago as well as today. Excellent doctor, I would highly recommend Dr. Ma to friends and family.
Prescribes Expensive Treatments w/o Proper Exam

Everything that was mentioned below with respect to how Dr. Ma treats her patients is what I experienced. Be prepared for her to mislead you into choosing an expensive, invasive procedure without listening, without explaining and most egregiously WITHOUT conducting a visual exam. Dr. Ma is very quick to jump to conclusions, she does not listen and is condescending. For whatever reason, she felt it was appropriate to belittle my profession as boring. But the most disturbing aspect of the entire experience was her dismissive demeanor and failure to perform basic medical duties.
Be Alert with Your Insurance Coverage

This office does not inform their patient whether their services covered by insurance or not. When insurance does not pay the bill, this office will bill you and claim it is your responsibility to know .

I have met w/Dr. Ma 2x in the last 2 years..I will never go back! She blames my gastro issues on my being "obese" ..I am a size 8! Really!! She mocked my going to the gym, my eating habits, and ultimately, my medical issue! I can't imagine what she would have to say to someone who is a size 10! Nothing like going into a doctor's appt. for a perscription refill and leaving in tears!

Dr. Ma can be very business-like which I think some interpret as not warm. She also pushes patient responsibility for participation in their own care - this won't appeal to folks with any complex condition who want a magic wand. I have an autoimmune condition which significantly affects my GI tract. I saw several gastros before settling with her and frankly many of them were not experienced enough to treat me. She is up to date on the latest protocols and procedures. I feel understood with her and confident in her opinions and recommendations. I would recommend her to anyone.

Insurance wasn't accepted, period. Result of colonoscopy was not explained completely. Said diverticula was due to eating too much white bread. Gave nutritional information on an illegible handout, said to avoid seeds. Recently received results to take to new physican and was shocked by the complete report and what I was not told.

I found Dr. Ma to be very kind, compassionate, and professional. The same can be said about every member of her staff, from the receptionist, to the nurse, to the scheduling nurse. Nothing at all like suggested by some of he comments posted here. They either have Dr. Ma confused with someone else or they caught her on a really, really bad day. I was so glad I didn't keep these negative comments dissuade me from keeping my appointment with Dr. Ma. She's a wonderful doctor.
Doctor should take a long vacation

Woman was impatient when asked questions and stormed around her office yelling at her staff within the hearing of patients. Would suggest she take a long vacation and learn to relax.
