Dr Ugheoke is a good doctor, but he does not support our veterans. His staff is extremely rude. I have cotacted our Senators about his business practice, he will not fill out forms that are needed for our veterans. He will not return phones whenever you leave numerous messages.

I carried my daughter there. This was the most rude and unprofessional staff I have ever dealt with. Will not return your calls. You can’t even talk to the office manager to make a complaint. Dr.Ugheoke was ok but either has no control over his office or don’t care. One extremely rude nurse.

I have only seen Dr. U in the hospital - he was very professional and knowledgeable. He was approachable, and very kind in his interactions.

Everyone in this office is superb, from the front reception, to the triage nurse, the CRNP and the doctor. I am very pleased with my experience and am looking forward to having him treat me for my current problems.
