As usual I was very impressed by DR Uwafo’s care and concern. He listens carefully to symptoms and discusses all the possibilities, checks lab results by other physicians as well as his own tests. He will get to the bottom of mysterious or inconsistent symptoms. He is a medical detective, very knowledgeable, discerning and with the best communication skills and genial attitude. I would rank him as an outstanding physician in every way.

He is, from my years of experience (using the Ochsner clinic in Slidell) the most difficult doctor to see at this facility - that, in itself, speaks volumes as to his capability.

Dr. Uwaifo is a real world Physician. He is a breath of fresh air in today's medical community. He listens to you and your life style. He is concerned, empathetic, and understanding. He is sensitive to your situation and then tells you how and why his recommendations should be followed. He is not condescending in his manner. He made some adjustments to my care and regimen that put me on the right tract for success and better health.
