My wait time was approx. 15 min. Once Dr. is in the room with you, she is totally yours. She LISTENS, asks questions and puts you at ease. My previous primary retired so after 20 yrs I had to find another dr, which I was not thrilled about. I am so very THANKFUL to have found Dr. A. She is the best and is on top of my health. How many drs have you known to give you a HUG at the end of the visit?

Dr. Abarikwu is one of the most caring and concerned physicians I have ever had the privilege of having as my primary care physician. She is very professional and knowledgeable of various health issues. She takes the time to genuinely listen to my health problems and correctly determines the course of action to be taken. I am very pleased to have Dr. Abarikwu as my physician.

I went in for an annual checkup and didn't authorize any other services. Connie billed me for additional services which were never discussed or approved (and nothing beyond ordinary annual checkup activities were performed). Also, my wait was excessive and my visit produced no useful information.

I had very serious health problems for a while. Dr Abarikwu is the best DR I've ever gone to, or even known. She's smart, she cares, she listens, gives any referrals or tests needed promptly. She does what's needed to get or keep you in your best health. They don't come better than her!!! Carmen is awful, she's often outright hostile. She sometimes doesn't get things done & lies to Dr A about it. But Dr A is truly worth putting up with Carmen,

Dr. Abarikwu is a lovely and kind doctor that spends time with you, makes you feel comfortable, as if you are in your own home. She listens to my various ailments and will work to try to find suitable help. I can't recommend her highly enough.

She is wonderful. Been her patient since 2000. Assistant is not friendly and is very short with you. Also not very good on follow up for sending info to other docs. Carmen is the only bad thing about this office.
