    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.
