Highly recommended!!
in Laguna Niguel, CA |
Dr. Nwagwu is an amazing neurosurgeon and person! His staff was so helpful and caring! Dr. Nwagwu was the first doctor who listened to me, took his time with me, and found something on my MRI that 2 other doctors missed. He made time for me on a day he normally does not see patients because of my situation. I feel so blessed and safe to have him by my side during this difficult time. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Nwagwu. He has a GIFT!!!!

Dr. Nwagwu was s nice and explained the surgery in a manner that I could easily understand. He answered all of my questions and calmed any insecurities before surgery. His surgery went great and I healed a lot after than anticipated, but no complications at all. After surgery he can still recognize me and remember very specific details from my injury without looking at a chart. He also has a great sense of humor and is very easy to get along with.
