Dr. Odunukwe's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Odunukwe "Dr. Ebube Odunukwe founded his practice in 1988. His goal was to create an innovative and caring atmosphere where patients would receive the highest quality eye care services, along with personalized attention. Dr. Odunukwe began his career as one of the first Certified Ophthalmic Technologists in the USA. Finding that his dedication was to complete eye care, medical and surgical, he attended Columbia University in New York and went on to earn his degree in medicine from Rush Medical College in Chicago. He completed his ophthalmology residency at Harlem Hospital Center in New York and took a fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus at the Edward Harkness Eye Institute at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York. He moved to Maryland in the fall of 1988 where he has been in solo-practice to present. He is retiring the practice at the end of 2017. All glory be to God."

Please view my detailed  patients' surveys at Zodoc which precedes  Healthgrades, for a better and in-depth patients' reports.

Patient surveys and reports, both good and bad, are useful tools for the clinician to always strive for his/her best care for all comers who have different and sometimes deeper concerns than the one they ask to be addressed.
