Dr. Richard S Ahn has the following 2 specialties

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

worst experience ever

My primary doctor refered my to doctor ahn because of sudden severe head aches. I was told they would call me to schedule an appointment, but instead I called them 3 days straight to get my appointment. When I finally got to the appointment Linda at the window advised me I would only have to pay 5% of the visit. By the end of the appoint she advised me i would have to pay alittle over $250, to say the least that was a shocker (there was a deductable she didnt see) so while I was at the apt I had to have an EEG and as well Dr. Ahn called in a script for me. Well the apt was on a wednesday and on monday I called in to get the results and she said he hadnt looked at them! As well I still was unable to fill my script because they sent it through the wrong insurance, its been two weeks and I still havent gotten that straightned out. So linda has the doctor look at my eeg and she calls me back and says theres abnormal activity on my left frontal lobe and need to go in for an MRI. no big deal right? (thats how she acted) But I'm 23 so yes its a big deal to me. So the MRI place next door is awesome and super nice. But now im back with Dr. Ahns office. As soon as I can force him to look at my MRI I will be having the results sent to a new neorolist for further review and the next step. It seems like everyone in that office is rapped up in their own lifes and they have no sympathy for what us patients are going through. Most of their patients seemed older and I just have to say I would NEVER send my grandparents and mother/father to that office, it causes more problems than it fixes!

Dr Ahn-Very unprofessional office staff

When you call and leave a message for Dr Ahn's nurse, you DO NOT get a call back. When calling the office, the call is usually goes picked up by a recording asking you to leave a message. After my next appointment, I WILL NOT be using Dr Ahn again. His staffdoes not return calls in a timely manner. They are not at all like other medical offices that I've ever dealt with. If he wants to continue running a medical office, he needs a make over in his office staff.
