Bad bedside manaer!

This Dr. talked down to me as if I were stupid, he is a heartless person. After I was told I needed surgery and my recovery would take 9 months, I cried - he berated me.

I have had 2 shoulder surgeries with Dr. Ahn in the past 6 years and am very satisfied with his abilities as a surgeon. He is sensitive to patient needs. He tends to be quiet and seems formal at first, and I suspect more on the shy side than some people. My husband (who has seen him as a patient too) and I loved to get him to smile. Such a nice guy and caring doctor!
