Patient Comments (3)

Never seen a pediatrician so rude especially with my baby no sympathy whatsoever will never go there again or recommend her to anyone's
Sandy, I do not know who you are but I suspect you must be commenting under the wrong doctor. I would NEVER be rude to a child. I became a pediatrician because I absolutely adore/love children, ALL children. My patients and Staff will attest to that. If you are sure, I am actually the doctor you are referring to and that my office is where you brought your child, I will like to get more details about this alleged rudeness. Nothing like that happens at my practice, I can guarantee that.

I will recommend her to any one in the world she's the best doctor I ever had I love her like my own mother she's the greatest she knows as soon as you have a condition she just looks at you and knows what you have exactly and knows what's best for you and what's not.

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!!!
