Specialties

Dr. David S Ahn has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Great Doctor, Nurse Practitioner and Staff

Wait time to be called can sometimes be long(over 30 min) but the wait is well worth it. The entire staff is very sweet. The doctor and nurse practitioner have excellent bed side manner. They never rush through the visit and take the time to answer questions. My three daughters have been patients here for almost six years and I plan on keeping them with Dr. Ahn's office until they can no longer be seen by a pediatrician.

2-3 hour wait, only to be incredibly disappointed

We were assigned to Doctor Ahn by our mediCal worker. We took our now 4 year old daughter there about five times. Every time we experienced pretty much everything the other reviewers complained about: very long wait in spite of appointment, diagnoses of asthma with no thorough testing, automatic steroid rx, never even seen the doctor, extremely rude staff, etc. In addition to the above experiences, we got dirty looks from the staff when my daughter would start to fuss or complain. Although nurse Battle is great with children, does a thorough exam, and answers questions, she does not listen and is not concerned about any issues besides asthma. I have a genetic medical issue(reflux in the ureters) that will cause kidney failure if not recognized and treated as soon as possible. My mother actually lost a kidney from the condition. I informed nurse Battle every time we visited, and she would say it was not a big concern and they only run tests after the fourth infection. Well my daughter had 4 bladder infections before she reached age 1, and was never sent to be tested. When I had my son, he had to go to the ER At 2 months old for a respiratory infection. His pediatrician Dr. Patel referred him for immediate testing when he diagnosed a bladder infection as well. Sure enough, he has the condition and we were referred to Loma Linda for further treatment and informed how serious the condition is and the urgency of treatment. I was so mad b/c Nurse Battle made me believe the reflux was no big deal. Patel informed me that any child under the age of 2 yrs who gets ONE or more bladder infections must immediately be tested for this condition. Way to go N. Battle, mydaughter is now 4 years old and I am taking her to a real doctor to get checked out AND treated this tues. Why the heck does anyone go here and wait 3 hours just to be seen by a nurse who tells everyone their child has asthma and prescribes harmful steroids? I am thinking Dr Ahn works for the pharmacuetical companies and gets a check to push steroids on everyone? Why is he still practicing and why is the waiting room packed with people willing to wait so long for terrible service?

Don't judge a book by its cover..

Even thought it's a very nice building and office itself and the front staff are people friendly, the doctor is almost never available and the NP is more interested in giving her opinion rather than facts. She prescribed my 4 1/2 month old daughter benadryl for what she said was a common cold. Benadryl is for allergies not a cold. And she is way too young to take any medication especially considering she had no fever. She told me to give her water when according to the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no water to be given to a child under the age of 6 months. Good thing I did my research before hand otherwise had I not known better, like some other parents may not be aware, I would have taken her advice. Her response to me saying the aap does not recommend that was that "well, we do here". I will not have my daughter seen there again.

Horrible!

This Doctor is horrible I dont trust him, everytime I see him he gives a weird look as if he knows you and doesn't like you. Quite judgmentel. Him and his PA are so quick to diagnosed asthma without really looking into it. I questioned him bout his steroid prescriptions and the side affects it gives about stopping growth and altering the kids behavior as they get older. He just looked at me and said the stopping of growth is only temporarily and they should start growing again. I told him- well that's not good either. Then he said what! in a harsh tone as if he was surprised what i said.So i repeated myself and he asked rudely if I have an anxiety disorder.Looking for someone better, I'm changing Doctors ASAP!
