Like all doctor's appointments, the early bird gets in on time! A 9 AM appointment will get you in and out. Ryan spends the appropriate amount of time and listens to symptoms. I think he is a fine doctor.

Net Loss!

Dr. Ryan performed arthoscopic surgery on my husband's knee supposedly to remove bone chips to prevent or forestall a full knee replacement. Well, his staff never bothered to request confirmation of coverage with our insurance company for the MRI that he ordered (as his office isrequired to do) and we ended up paying over $1,200 out of pocket for it. Then Dr. Ryan didn't remove all the bones fragments and he never mentioned or treated the underlying arthritis that my husband wasn't aware of until he had more pain after that surgery and started seeing other doctors about it. So the surgery did not accomplish anything and in fact made things worse and my husband is in desperate need of a knee replacement because of the pain. When my husband went back to discuss the continuing pain he was eventually rebuffed and without even doing any independent examination, Dr. Ryan's insurer has decided to stand behind him and won't pay to correct his errors.

beyond awful

The worst doctor I have ever been to with the rudest staff (except for the nice male assistant with the poneytail).
