Dr. Nwachuku operated on my badly fractured ankle after I fell on the ice 1/28/2016.I feared trusting the unknown doctor who would hold my can I walk normal again fate in his hands. After meeting Dr. Nwachuku before the surgery I was immediately impressed. He drew me a picture explaining my injury and how he would go about fixing it. He is one of the few bright spots in this traumatic experience! His personality is great and it is a pleasure to see my ortho dr during my recovery! Thanks Doc!
