I had done some research and went to see another doctor prior to seeing doctor Chukwumah for a hernia issue. I was impressed with his direct no nonsense approach and would recommend him

Do not see this doctor... you will never get your results from any tests or any call backs about results. He sees so many patients that the care he is able to give to each individual one is very poor.
