Very nice and professional, explanations are clear, will not over medicate.

Worst experience. I would not recommend Dr. Ugwuoke to anyone.
in Levittown, PA |
In the first appointment with him he wasn't very friendly. I don't think he smiled once. During the appointment he was filling out the e-chart, which I could see along with the chat window to the pharmacy which contained other patient's names. He seemed very rushed as if I wasn't worth his time. He gave some questionable advice regarding pharmacy regulation and having to use the practice's pharmacy. He also gave some questionable advice regarding dosage and meds, contrary to standard practice.
In our practice, we strive to uphold the highest standard of care and ensure safety of our patients. I understand that in today's world of polypharmacy and given the epidemics around prescription medications abuse and overprescribing, some patients will be disappointed to hear that I do not prescribe medications if it is not medically necessary and I will also not over-medicate anyone. I'm sorry you feel this way but I will not prescribe recklessly.

Rude, unprofessional, ignorant, only in it for the money.
