Dr. Iwelumo is a very compassionate, knowledgeable and thorough pediatrician. She takes the time to answer all my questions, address all my concerns and still maintains a high level of professionalism. My kids love her and I am very very pleased with her patient care. She holds her staff to a high standard unlike other pediatric offices I have visited and as a mum, I really appreciate that. Most of all, she sees each patient herself and does not hand off everything to her PA or NP. Love her!!!
