What People Say About Dr. Chukwuma Okoroji, MD

The only time I've NOT waited AT LEAST an hour to just get in the exam room was when my appt was 1st thing in the morning. He is way too busy to give proper personalized care. Plus they seem to charge more than most practices, which wouldn't be a problem if the level of care was as high as the charges. Most of the staff are really nice but sometimes it's impossible to get anyone on the phone.

I was pretty disappointed in my overall experience with Dr. Okoroji. My 6 week Ultrasound showed an empty sac. 1 week later I saw Dr. Okoroji. I was immediately told I should expect to miscarry in two weeks, that if my body was deserving it would be pregnant. When I asked for confirmation that I’d miscarry with an ultrasound he said it wouldn’t show anything. That with an empty sac there was only a 5-10% chance of it being viable. Well here I am 8 weeks along, babies heart rate is 160.

Dr Okoroji really cares about his patients. He took the time to explain options pertaining to my condition and allowed me to make a informed decision. Once we agreed that surgery was the best option he explained the procedure to my family and answered their questions as well as mine. I would recommend him to anyone seeking medical care.

Unfortunately my experience with Dr. Okoroji was horrible and I left in tears after 7 visits where he held my hand, offered prayer, collected a $70 (Co-pay) and played on my spirituality every visit. I only asked for honesty and thorough clinical assessment of my current disorder. Instead I underwent surgery, but the problem was never resolved due to an excessive amount of polyps that were not removed. Dr. Okoroji was highly recommended to me but I would never refer a pt. to him!

Dr. Okoroji is compassionate and far exceeds the call of duty. He is up-to-date on best care practices and is a leader in his specialty. In my opinion, he is an expert on VBAC and passionate about helping women achieve their delivery goals. Despite his busy practice, he takes time with his patients. His office staff treat you like family. I drove 4 hours to deliver with this physician and would do it again. Dr. Byrd works with him and has an excellent bedside manner.

Dr. O has been my doctor since 2005, I am truly blessed to have him as my doctor. He has gone over and beyond the call of duty and has always listened to my concerns during my visit. He is a very caring doctor!!! Make your appointment and you will never want another doctor!!!

I was nervous about changing over to a male doctor but after my first meeting with Dr. O I knew I would be well taken care of. I've always had heavy and long menstruals. Dr. O listened to my needs and sent me for both a transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound. I learned that I had 2 small fibroid's on the outside of my uterus. It was nice to know I wasn't crazy for all the abdominal pain I would experience. I had the Novasure ablation (in office) and hoping for no more periods. :-)
