Here's What Our Patients Say About Dr. Ahillen

My family and I have been patients of Arthritis & Sports for over 15 years. The doctors are top notch and the staff are very professional and friendly. My three sons have had many breaks, bumps and bruises of some sort over the years and it has always been nice to know that I could rely on the Arthritis & Sports team to come to our aid. Booking appointments has been and is always effortless and wait times in the office are never an issue.

I saw Dr. Ahillen for a finger issue. In short, she was one of the best doctors I have ever seen. She had a wealth of information that she presented cogently. She gave me a set of treatment options, with the pros and cons of each. The actual treatment was painless and effective. Lastly, she always treated me with great kindness. Each of these attributes is rare, but really never occurs in combination.  A truly amazing doctor.

I have had two surgeries by two different doctors here and couldn't be more impressed. I have moved from the area and currently live 4 hours away. I drove to these guys to address carpal tunnel in both hands. I will let no one else perform surgery on me as long as Arthritis & Sports exists, if that tells you anything.
