Dr. Nwachuku operated on my son's badly broken arm in 2013. He was amazing! Kind, so nice, very funny, explained everything clearly to us with compassion and clarity. Put us and our child at ease during a scary time. We highly recommend him if needed. I hope no child has to endure a broken bone BUT Dr. Nwachuku is the dr to go to! He's great! My son still talks about him years later.

Dr. Nwachuku is very easy to talk with. He explained to me the nature of my injury and what would be required to restore me to health. I am very happy that he happened to be on duty when I needed help. He subsequently performed surgery and follow-up.

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!
