Let me start this review by saying mental healthcare in general is a disaster, especially in Georgia. There are not enough mental healthcare providers and the existing providers are overwhelmed due to the COVID crisis and its impact. With that said, I have to say Dr. Nkwocha has been absolutely great to work with. My son has bipolar 1 with psychotic tendencies. This has been a difficult journey for my family. Dr. Nkwocha made himself available and was really helpful even before my son was a patient. He has been very responsive and gone out of his way to support my son and our family. He agreed to accept my son as a patient and proactively adjusted his medications, which had a tremendous impact on his disposition. We truly appreciate his attention and service.

Dr. Nkwocha may be a competent doctor. I don’t know. I wasn’t his patient very long. But his staff were impossible to deal with. They were never willing to help me and treated me like I was a nuisance. It got so bad that the doctor actually told me I would have to be responsible for obtaining and providing him with the results of routine lab work he ordered, because his office manager couldn’t be bothered to call the lab herself. Not professional behavior. To his credit, Dr. Nkwocha faxed all my medical records to my new psychiatrist in one day, something he told me at the time was impossible and unreasonable of me to ask for. Your psychiatrist’s office shouldn’t be a source of extra anxiety for you. Dr. Nkwocha’s office was for me.

my closest friend and ex-partner recently had a mental/nervous breakdown manifesting as paranoia, hearing voices, seeing things, delusions that he was a target (of police, ICE, cartel, you name it)—he was admitted under the care of Dr. Dominic Nkwocha. I called to speak with a case manager or clinician so I could provide background and baseline information, Not one return phone call in 6 days! He was given a routine discharged by Dr. Nkwocha (meaning it was not AMA, against medical advice.) While his friend was waiting to pick him up, a staff member confided, “I saw him, and even though I don’t know him, I know he wasn’t ok. I don’t know why he was discharged.” Not only was he discharged prematurely by Dr. Nkwocha, and he was given no follow up plan. The mentally ill patient was left to fend for himself with his paranoia and voices, but when we took him back to Ridgeview he couldn't be admitted because it would prove Dr. Nkwocha was mistaken with his assessment.

Dr. Nkwocha treatment me as a patient at Ridgeview for Bi-Polar 1. He is an excellent psychiatrist. He listened to my questions and concerns. He managed my medications very well and got me very stable from a manic phase. My wife was able to communicate with him. She even wrote questions out questions for him and he answered out and for him to answer it. He accepted our BCBS insurance. I am very thankful that I was treated by Dr. Nkwocha. I would high recommend him!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Nkwotcha for the last 10 years. It’s hard to read some of these reviews because that doesn’t describe him at all. He always responds and makes sure his staff reports scheduling issues as well as any other issues to him promptly. I wish he was a family physician so I could see him for all around care. He’s understanding, kind, he really cares how you feel and cares about what is going on in your life. I’d be the first to say if he was anything other than and his office staff Mrs. Shelia is the sweetest.

I have been trying to get him to answer the phone or show up to an appointment for the last six weeks. I have never spoken to him but I have made two separate appointments and they missed both of them and never called me back to apologize.

This business is hands down the most unprofessional and disorganized doctor's office I have ever dealt with. No one answers calls, returns voicemails, checks voicemails. There is no email or internet presence, so no way to communicate via this method. No one calls you to tell you your appointment is delayed or re-scheduled. No one calls to schedule a follow-up appointment, as the doctor promised. No general intake forms to fill out. After a week of calls and voicemails and speaking to several people who verified my order had been called in, my pharmacy informs me the doctor STILL has not called in my Rx. I have been out of pills for days. Utterly deplorable service.

Wife of 45 years hospitalized at Ridgeview Institute for depression, assigned to Dr. Nkwocha. He refuses to communicate with her physician husband about her care. Told her he was too busy seeing patients at his office and hospitals, and he WOULD NOT talk to me on the phone at any time. Very brief visits with my wife. Appears uncaring and uncompassionate. Has failed to communicate with psychologist recommending the admission or her primary care doctor.

I always said that I would never go to a male Shrink.... I have been a client for close to 2 years, one of the best decisions I have ever made. Dr.Nkwocha is excellent. He listens to me and remembers personal things about me and always ask how my daughter is. I couldn't ask

I was referred to him, but have been very disappointed. I feel very rushed and he never remembers important info of mine from one appointment to the next. He doesn't seem like he cares and definetly doesn't want a conversation with you bc he's consistently running late with his next patient.

Dr. Nkwocha's level of discernment is it exactly what I needed to deal with my mental disease. When things aren't going well I can not rely that I will answer appropriately to the doctor's questions. Without saying much Dr. Nkwocha is aware whether I am manic, hypo manic, or doing well. His professionalism is unmatched with his ability to focus on the things that really matter.

I find the doctor to be very helpful ,however the secretary leaves much to be desired my experience with her leaves me stressed out each time I have the misfortune that its necessary to deal with her ,shes very unprofessional and I sometimes wonder why the doctoer hasn't had a conversation about her or if he even realizes her behavior.

I have never in my life dealt with such insensitivity. When I told Dr. Nkwocha that I hurt myself before, he asked to see my scar like he didn't believe me. He said if I didn't do a full partial hospitalization instead of the more reasonable intensive therapy he wouldn't sign off my disability ppwk so that I could be paid from my job. I heard from other staff he felt I was trying to avoid working. Sad thing is if he would have looked my patient notes from 2010 he could have seen my full history
