Specialties

Dr. Christopher M Ahn has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Great Experience!

Dr. Ahn made me feel comforted going into a recent procedure. I was nervous about going under and he completely eased my anxiety. His bedside manner is very professional and he listens well. This was by far the best experience I have ever had with an anesthesiologist.

Fantastic experience with this doctor. I was very concerned about the effect of anesthesia on my breastmilk and he called me personally before and after my procedure to reassure me that there was nothing to worry about. Great bedside manner and very well informed.

Top Notch Anesthesiologist!!!

Dr. Ahn was amazing from start to finish, He has excellent clinical judgment, knowledge and bedside manner. One of the most important parts of surgery is the ability to get a patient through anesthesia safely. Not only is picking the best surgeon important, but being blessed with a good anesthesiologist is critical. He was gentle and kind, He thoroughly explained risks and took the time to ensure that our mother was comfortable going into surgery (after having several horrible experiences). She woke up from surgery with NO nausea or throat soreness. We will absolutely be requesting him for all procedures for her and the rest of the family. Thank you Dr. Ahn for caring!

Awesome!!

Dr. Chris Ahn is a fantastic anesthesiologist. My son had major surgery this week . I was very nervous because my son has a health condition where he could have complications from anesthesia. Dr. Ahn called us the night before the operation and thoroughly listened to us about our concerns. He is very knowledgeable about my son's condition and knew exactly the proper anesthesia to administer to keep my son very safe and comfortable. The morning of the operation he visited us and very thoroughly again went over everything. He takes his time with his patients, never rushes you and understands your concerns. After the operation that evening he called us to check on my son. I give Dr. Ahn the highest rating. I would definitely request Dr. Ahn again for any surgery for anyone in my family. Thank you Dr. Ahn!

Dr. Ahn literally saved my life...and fully explained how I nearly lost it!

Words that come to mind to describe Dr. Ahn: competent, skillful, knowledgeable, kind, caring, understanding, a good listener, a good explainer…I WANT HIM IN MY SURGICAL SUITE! In preparation for spine surgery I was being moved from the supine to the prone position and immediately experienced a Vagal Response...no pulse and barely detectable BP. In my mind it was providential that I was not only in an operating room, but in there with Dr. Ahn who masterfully, and perhaps miraculously, saved my life. This surgery was aborted, but 7 weeks to the day later he was on the same surgical team in a successful surgery (after numerous heart tests and ultimately implanting a defibrilator). I had NEVER had any heart issues prior to this...surprise! Dr. Ahn spent at least a 1/2 hour answering family member's questions prior to surgery, and he spent considerable time via telephone putting my mind at ease, and seeing that I understood what had occurred triggering the event. He has an extremely kind manner and while he is consummately professional, and explains in very understandable terms to the non-medical layperson.
