Dr Onwuka is one of the best PCPs I have had the pleasure to meet. He is very caring, listens and follows up with his patients. I found him very knowledgeable about health issues and his thinking is often validated with test results. He will go to much lengths to get you to meet with a specialist even when their office has turned you down. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Onwuka and do believe you will not be disappointed.

Dr Onwuka is the best doctor that I’ve ever had. He is so genuine and a down to earth guy. Talking to him is like talking to your best friend or close brother. He does whatever it takes to find out what the problem is and getting you back to good health. Most of his staff is nice and friendly. There are a couple of the staff that are very rude and For some reason think you owe them something. Bottom line is Dr Onwuka will continue to shine and their attitude won’t take them too far in life.

I have looked for a Primary Care Physician for 4 years after my previous Doctor retired. Dr. Onwuka was referred to me by my Pain Management Doctor. I am so appreciative. Dr. Onwuka is a kind, caring, professional Doctor. He is very "down-to-Earth" individual. He is genuinely concerned about your health and gives plenty of suggestions on how to keep healthy. An added bonus is his Nurse Practitioner, Kate.

Dr. Onwuka provides excellent care. He listens well and asks questions to be sure he understands symptoms. He then takes the time to explain his diagnosis and any tests required to confirm it. Visists and checkups are performed in a friendly manor that keeps the appoinment friendly and comfortable. I have been seeing Dr Onwuka for years and have remained a patient even though he has moved his practice to Clinton. (About an eighty minute drive.)

I know him but never saw him as a patient. I can be a Dr nightmare, I don't like drugs. I saw him due to a ED/hospital stay. He was very thorough. Walked me through all the tests taken while I was there. I was very satisfied with my in office visit.
