I would NOT recommend Dr. Afolabi to anyone ! She gave me an injection in the WRONG spot and misdiagnosed my back pain. She gave an injection without an x ray to guide her to the correct area of pain.

I could not have had a better explanation of my back problem than the one given by Dr. Afolabi. Her staff could not be more courteous or pleasant. You leave feeling better than when you arrived. Highly recomend.

Communicates complex ideas in easily understandable terms. Solving a severe back issue is scary. I trusted her fully by the end of our first session. I was also pleased to hear the radiologist, PAs, and other staff compliment her for being a good diagnostician and superlative surgeon. I saw another back doctor in the same practice and chose to change over to Dr. Afolabi.
