    Dr Chijike Ogbu deserves 5 ++++ Star. God sent Dr Ogbu to save many lives including my Dad. Dr Ogbu has been taking care all his patients from "his heart" including my Dad. On June 6th, 2020 nursing home sent my Dad to Spohn South ER. Dad was in coma. ER Dr Vo told my sister and I that my Dad 87, his condition was 95% worse. Dr Vo told us there was no chance for my Dad. I fought back. They sent my Dad to ICU where I met Dr Chijike Ogbu. He saves my Dad life while others Drs already gave up on Dad. My family and I are so grateful to have Dr Ogbu. We recommend Dr Ogbu 100%. He's the best Dr!!! I haven't seen any Drs who care about his patients like Dr Ogbu in my life time. May God bless him and his family abundandly!!!
