What People Say About Dr. Eleanya Ogburu-Ogbonnay, MD

Dr. Eleanya Ogburu-Ogbonnaya wasn't interested in helping me but I wasn't one of his regular patients who just see him to get opioids. On my first appt before he even met me or gave me one test, his office told me to sign a form to consent to "Chronic Opioid Treatment." I refused. I had severe Post Concussion Syndrome and was referred by my Family Practice doctor for a neurological assessment for a brain injury-the last thing I wanted or needed was drugs. He is a drug pusher. BEWARE!

Worst doctor i have ever been to. Not just him, his entire staff. Alot of reviews say he gets a bad rap because of his staff...who do you think is in charge of that staff. You are only as good as your worst employee!

Worse doctor I have ever met. He is called a pain doctor but keeps people in pain. He goes out of town and does not have anyone in call. He is arrogant and refuses to accept calls from another doctor concerned about your pain.

The "normal" wait time with Dr. Ogburu is between 4-6 hours in an unpleasant wait room, even with an advanced appointment. I have been there over six times with an appointment and still had to wait AT LEAST four hours before seeing any doctor in their office. His staff has real attitude. If you have all day to spend, go right ahead. The nurses treated me like I was an inconvenience. Usually , when I call his office, I cannot reach a "live" person , so driving there was all I could do.

This is a horrible place. Not just the Dr but the entire staff. No concern for the patients. These are the worse of the worse people to have to deal with. If you care about your health go somewhere else because this place cares nothing about you.

Dr Ogburu ordered Aqua, physical & occupational therapy for me & his staff never followed up on referrals. Prior authorizations were mishandled by staff including when pharmacy contacted them time n time again for further information. My pharmacy was left on eternal hold and even hung up on. I tried getting in touch with staff & I had to go in person to make sure things I needed done were getting done. The Windows have bullet holes & chairs are all urine stained.
