Specialties

Dr. Thomas D Amankonah has the following 3 specialties

  • Hepatology

    A hepatologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and biliary tree - the path through which bile that is secreted by the liver travels to the duodenum. These organs are responsible for many essential bodily functions, such as production of hormones and enzymes, filtering the blood, detoxifying chemicals, metabolizing drugs, and digesting and processing food.
    Common disorders that are treated by hepatologists are cirrhosis of the liver, gallstones, pancreatitis and hepatitis.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Amonkonah is always very kind and patient! He answers all of my questions , and I always get a thorough exam! He's kind to my family and is always informative! His staff is very friendly and nice! He spends as much office time with me as needed! Usually, around 30 to 45 minutes! He does run lAte to the visit, but I appreciate him spending the time he needs with his patients , because this will probably be me one day!

Full Review Rating Breakdown

Incompetent, unprofessional and poor bedside manner

I agree with the previous review. Please don't see this MD. We waited for him for more than an hour for our appointment and spent about 15 mins with us including answering his calls and page. He is very unprofessional in my opinion. He will put his patient aside if he feels you are terminally ill. We never heard back from this doctor after he sent us for blood draw. Do yourself a favor and don't do see this MD for consultation or treatment.
