This doctor is a quack. We were sent to him by workmans comp for an independent medical examination for my husbands back injury. He did no assessment and wrote in his recommendation whatever workmans comp wanted. He flat out lied and his recommendations were completely opposite those of two other respected surgeons/doctors from Loyola. We are being forced to see him again for another IME. We shall see what kind of lies he gets paid to write this time.

Dr. An did a great job on my surgery, I wouldn't have gone to anyone else nor wld I recommend it. very nice in person, very short with words but he knows what he's doing! His nurse Jackie is very nice & helpful. On another note...THE HOSPITAL STAFF (nurses, post-op) ARE THE ABSOLUE WORST I HAVE EVER HAD!

Terrible bed side manner. Nurse was rude. Diagnotics was poor at best. Would not follow any of this doctors recommendations at all.

Answer to my prayers!

I have a herniated disc in the C5 and C6 area of my neck. I went to Dr, An for a second opinion. Dr. An told me he could do a fusion or an M6 cervical disc replacement after looking at MRI. I chose the disc replacement surgery and I couldn't be happier I am on day three after surgery and I already feel a difference. I was only in the hospital overnight and I came home yesterday. Dr. An is an outstanding surgeon and answered all questions before surgery and now I am on my way to getting my life back because my pain from the herniated disk has ceased. Thank you Dr. An!

No time for patients!

After filling out mounds of paperwork, I was left with an electronic device I was not familiar with. No one explained how to work it. Too many assistants and students, but only 2 minutes with Dr. An. He refused to do surgery and told me to go back to pain clinic. Fortunately his suburban surgeon competitor had plenty of time for me and said I AM a surgical candidate. So happy to find someone who listens and gives back HOPE. Don't waste your time here. It's run like a factory
