Ratings for Dr. Helen C. Ahn
Had a cystoscopy today and was worried based on other reviews. It was a snap and took less then 5 minutes. She was very compassionate and reassuring and did listen to me. Trust me when I say she is a very good doctor. I will not hesitate to go back for a follow up.
I have a friend whose surgery is being cancelled because Dr. Ahn and her staff allowed a simple UTI to get out of control. I have seen her also for a chronic problem and left because she has no listening skills. My family doctor is more helpful and willing to check into problems than Dr. Ahn.
Had a Cystoscopy done by Dr. Ahn. She was unable to get the probe into my bladder. But was quite capable of causing excessive bleeding for two days after. Was also very adept at scheduling a 3rd cancer scan urine test. Got to make that money. Also charges for copies of records of tests you pay for. Seems she is interested in only making money. I'd steer clear.
I had a cyctoscopy in Dr. Ahn's office and contracted Ecoli within 12 hours as a result of the procedure and required hospitalization for sepsis. I was hospitalized 3 days and discharged and required 7 days of IV antibiotics afterwards. Then there was a readmission for the same Ecoli bug within 10 days requiring 5 more days in the hospital followed by 12 days of IV antibiotic as an outpatient at the hospital.
Dr Ahn was very thorough in my initial examination and discovered tests that needed to be done or could have very possibly been very serious. Then Dr Ahn performed the tests and gave clear guidance to me on best course of actions. Dr Ahn really cares about her patients.
