Dont feel Dr. Wowo listened well or is giving correct meds. Serious side effects with little effort to help where its needed. Quick to jump to conclusions. I really wanted to like this doctor but have had a poor experience.

Today was my first visit so it too early to give a fair assessment however I will say that his office staff was nice and courteous. I was apprehensive but Dr B. Wowo was very pleasant and he listened patiently. He asked questions asked me if I had any. We did slightly disagree on medication treatment but I do understand because I am a new patient. Overall I felt comfortable and I was pleasantly surprised because that’s not easy for me. Yes I would recommend.
