Dr. Jeffrey Ahn, MD

Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor, Head & Neck Surgeon

Professional statement

Dr. Jeffrey Ahn is one of the leading head and neck surgeons in the world, with over twenty years of clinical experience and a long record of academic leadership. As Director of Sleep Disorder & Robotic Surgery and Assistant Professor of Clinical Otolaryngology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, Dr. Ahn has dedicated his career to pioneering approaches in the treatment of sinusitis, snoring, and sleep apnea. Mission and Specialities Patient comfort is at the heart of Dr. Ahn’s academic work and private practice. Over the years, he has been at the forefront of developing minimally invasive head and neck procedures that reduce patient discomfort and make patient recovery time shorter and less painful. Moreover, his additional fellowship training in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery means that he is particularly skilled in reducing the visible impact, as well as the physical discomfort, of head and neck surgery. Dr. Ahn was the first surgeon in the United States to use the coagulating agent Costasis to control bleeding during nasal and sinus surgeries; this spared patients from undergoing painful post-operative packing. Since 2005, Dr. Ahn has been performing balloon sinuplasty, a minimally invasive method whose endoscopic, catheter-based technology has vastly improved and shortened the patient recovery experience. Currently, Dr. Ahn is involved in stem cell research for connective tissue engineering in head and neck reconstruction, and in the research and development of head and neck robotic surgery.

My appointment was at the end of winter, I wanted to get all my my allergy and GERD prescriptions early so I could be prepared for the coming spring allergy season. I came in with my records from my previous ENTand a list of what I was previously prescribed and worked. I saw this man every two weeks for the next three months. At every visit he refused to write any prescriptions telling me to try the over the counter meds despite the fact that I've told him that OTC isn't strong enough to treat my allergies. My visits were more or less How do you feel? - I feel terrible, these are my symptoms. - Okay follow up in 2 weeks. He was only out to make a buck off my insurance. Never going back.

I was hoping I found an ENT doctor who could help me but instead I felt rushed. Didn't feel like I was being heard as he kept interrupting me while I was trying to describe my symptoms. It felt like hejust didn't care at all. I will not be returning to his office again. The staff however were very kind and courteous. I give the staff 5 stars.

I visited Dr. Ahn in January 2016 in order to get a proper diagnosis of my sinus congestion, allergies and past sinus infections. After two visits to see Dr. Ahn in less than a month for my sinus problems and deviatedseptum, my overall impression of this doctor is that his main focus is to increase revenue for his practice. He does not provide a detailed explanation for his diagnosis and seems very impatient with a poor and condescending demeanor to patients. I filled out a medical release consent form for his office to send me my allergy test results. However, his office staff refused and the doctor has yet to call me for an explanation. I will be contacting the proper medical board so I can receive my results and file a complaint about this doctor.

His staff very friendly. The waiting area clean. Cabinets inside the patient's room may need to be wiped or changed. They are not dusty but stained with black marks. The doctor is knowledgable and professional but could be a little morefriendly or at least not too serious. Overall, I would recommend this doctor, so far.

Dr. Ahn was friendly, straightforward, and thorough in his initial ENT consultation. After I left the appointment, I called his office with follow-up questions that came to mind later on that day. Although Dr. Ahn was busy with a patient, hisstaff made sure to direct my questions to him, and they returned my call promptly with all the answers I needed. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ahn if you are seeking an ENT specialist.
