Patient Comments (8)
in Asbury, NJ |
Dr. Sokunbi was really excellent in dealing with my back problem. He recommended all the conservative treatments before surgery. Laminectomy and discectomy went as I expected with immediate relief from leg pain. I was using the walker within 2 days with continual improvement after that. At 6 weeks I am essentially recovered and able to resume normal biking, swimming and other exercises. His communication was helpful throughout the process.

I have been to numerous doctors and tried everything imaginable for treatment over the years (over 10 different things, including surgery). The situation seemed to be a mystery, and no one could give me a clear answer. Dr. Sokunbi seemed confident in knowing what it was. After he explained everything, I felt very confident with what he thought. It all made sense. I felt like the mystery had been solved. He explained things other doctors hadn't explained. Thank you Dr. Sokunbi!

Dr. Sokunbi is a wonder worker. I have been walking with a cane and other supports and then went to see him. He told me to bring my sugar levels down as I am a Diabetic and I did. He did the surgery, which was complex, It is less that a month and I am able to walk without assistance and feel 100% better. I was released by the Physical Therapist and fell terrific. I think this Doctor is absolutely the best.
Bethlehem, PA |
Made assumptions without speaking to me, came in to room preaching when if he'd have looked at my test results and the office notes from my other treating physicians he would have realized his assumptions were wrong. Made condescending comments about a disease I have outside of his specialty. If he knew about the disease he would not judge my symptoms and make rude comments.
in Bethlehem, PA |
Caught him insulting my mother outside of the room while I waited for a cup of water from a nurse. Called him out on his rude comment and he decided to scream at me in the hallway, then proceeded to follow me back into the room my mother was in and continue to scream at me- then kicked me out of the office. Clearly couldn't handle being caught and had to respond with a temper tantrum. Would not reccomend him at all. Extremely self entitled and unprofessional.
in Northampton, PA |
Wonderful surgeon with excellent skills. He saved my life. Good outcome with my surgery. Always took the time to listen and respond to my questions. We need more doctors like him. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
in Bangor, PA |

Took over an hour to see from my appointment time. Did not explain procedure clearly. Very self professing! Not clear on diagnosis nor treatment. Would not recommend.
