I met Dr. Opara at Methodist Hospital, Sugar Land. For a person I had never met before, he was truly kind and caring about my well being after my cervical surgery. I saw him every day I was in the hospital and would recommend him to anyone seeking an internist.

I was told by my PCP I had a UTI & was given (4) different types of antibiotics @ four different times. Until I passed out @work. I was rushed to the ER by ambulance whereas Dr. Opara was the doctor assigned to my medical attention. Dr Opara diagnosed me Kidney Failure from a particular antibiotic that was prescribed to me by my PCP. Dr. Opara began treating me for it my very first day in the hospital. I spent (3) days in the hospital under this AWESOME Dr.& I would switch Drs in a heartbeat!
