To begin, I have worked in the health care field my entire life and know the benefits of a referral, especially when it comes to our health and well being. I suffered from a 50% spinal chord impingement due to an accident, Dr Onyiuke was not only highly educated and proficient in his area of expertise but also detailed when it came to explaining my prognosis. I also appreciated is compassionate bedside manner. My 3 level cervical fusion (anterior cervical discectomy/ fusion) was completed in less than 2 hours. This is completely secondary but he also used a beautiful technique that left me with a very aesthetically pleasing scar that blended with my anatomy. I could not be happier with the results. I have and will forever recommend him and his team to my friends, clients and family.

Had back fusion surgery. This Dr and all of his team are the cream of the crop. They listen, they take the time to make you feel comfortable and explain everything thoroughly. I cannot say enough about them. If you have a condition that they can address, I highly recommend you see Dr Onyiuke. They are at the top of their game.

Dr Onyiuke is tops in diagnosis and surgical proficiency. His team is fabulous with post surgery care. Had three spinal fusions with him and now lead a pain free, very active life. He’s my hero!

WALKED OUT of room!!!! The worst bedside manner ever... and I have seen MANY surgeons in my lifetime
