I’ve been a patient of doctor Nwapa’s for many many years….. I’m not an adolescent I’am in my 60’s…..he saved my life on several occasions….. I think his bed side manner is awesome when you consider how many patients the doctor has!!! No matter what he always seems to have time to answer questions, and go over medications…..I like him and so does my family, that’s important!!!

We were seeing Dr Nwapa for my son and then switched to Cindy when she came. We have had a great experience with both Dr.’s. Would highly recommend this practice. Only issue I’ve ever had is when they switched offices. But they are back on it!

Great practice, location is beautiful, office staff is great, office manager is amazing. They get things done. The review about the Dr Wife running the practice is so wrong, she is very thoughtful, patient, they follow up on missed calls. She is running the practice the right way. It’s a new location, different office staffs than the previous office.

His assistant Cindy is awesome! His wife, Chenway, is rude and obnoxious. He has her running the office and hangs up on clients multiple times and gives an attitude. When it comes to my child and medication, this “lady” is interfering with medical treatment!!! Then when I finally got someone to actually help me, they didn’t want to make my daughter’s appointment to speak with the doctor!!!!! Sucks when insurance only covers certain offices. Plus, why do they need your home address to make an appointment with a doctor my daughter has seen for years?!?!?!

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!
