What People Say About Dr. Emmanuel Nwapa, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Nwapa was condescending to his patient throughout the visit. He interrupted repeatedly and made rude and inappropriate remarks about the patient's competency while in the room with him. He has clearly given up on this youth and delivered treatment in that way. It might be helpful if Dr Nwapa did his own therapeutic work because he may be burnt out, and if that's not the case, I worry that whatever is going on with him, is overflowing into his ability to practice with compassion. At this time, he is clearly ill equipped to work with youth who have complex diagnoses or prognoses. I can only imagine his work with other vulnerable populations and would not feel safe taking a loved one to him for care.

i cannot believe the low reviews just because he overlaps with his time...Its because he is patient and he is a very good doctor who cares about all of his patients..He will give you extra time if needed....My son is his patient and the Dr motivated him and made him feel comfortable, greatly, miraculously, because of his concern and patience...I do understand that a 10 minute wait may seem like one hour to a client who is looking forward to speaking with him...I appreciate Dr. Nwapa so much

You would think they would give you a courtesy call before your appointment or pick up the phone when you call.

Great doctor! He tries to put you on what you need and works with you to get off of what you don't want or need. He is not big on using benzos because he has seen so much withdraw and dependence in the hospital setting. He watches side effects and does education on new meds. Wait times can be a problem at times but he is worth the wait!
