Very unprofessional staff. I feel like he didn't have my child's best interest in mind. He rushed through talking to her and was very rude to me and her. This was her first and last time seeing him. DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD TO SEE THIS MAN!

My child see a different psychiatrist every time he visit there. They ask and go by what my son tell them. My son is the patient, is a minor, and is the person suffering a mental illness. The front desk told me it’s because my son looks normal as if I wasn’t referred to them from 2800 S McGreagor where he stayed there for a month and has his diagnosis. Rude

Dr Uzokwe it wasn't any help for my son, my son was seen by him at Bellaire behavioral hospital I just want to say is was the most horrible experience I haven't get a call back from him after several calls and messages I guess he's too busy to take some time to talk about my son health. I don't recommend him at all, do not take your love ones with this people

Hello Doctor its now 4.38 pm on this day of Tues its very overwhelming for all your patients to be sustaining a wait of more than 30 mins for the scheduled appt. That is given to them being disabled shouldnt be hours of waiting on you as you never etriculate a apoligy along with a very ill mannered receptionist with unprofessional office rules and privacy of patients very unpleasant when u ask a question shes very rude and its not her position to treat one with sarcastic comments just because .

I am concerned about the lack of patient consideration and patient respect observed among the doctor's staff. Staff is rude and does not care about patient health and the risks associated with late prescription refills. I have been trying to get my prescription refilled for over two weeks and cannot get cooperation from the doctor's staff or communicate with the doctor personally, which is why I am expressing my concerns via this website.
