Dr. Obi is the best pain physician there is!! As someone that is in the medical profession, and work with pain physicians on a daily basis, I know what good looks like and in my experience no one is as competent,caring, and just an overall great physician and person than Dr. Obi. He has been my physician now for the last 3 years and I cannot imagine ever going to any other physician. The funny thing about it is I have been offered another job in another state and i will not take it because that would mean i would have to find another pain doctor. In my mind Dr. Obi epitomizes what good look like.
