Patient Comments (3)
in Barrington, IL |
Dr Onwuta and staff abandoned me after 5 years of being his patient and paying out of pocket. I needed to address my mental health and needed to get off of opioids before entering 28 day inpatient facility for depression. He refused to help me his staff was beyond cruel to me telling me he's triple booked everyday and I couldn't get in for a month to see him. Even after I explained my serious situation. I'm heartbroken over this he doesn't care about his patients well being and doesn't listen

Been seeing him for years because I can't find another Doctor. Dr. Onwuta always makes me wait and then I feel he isn't listening or believing me. He hasn't helped me one bit.

Dr Onwuta is an exceptional pain doctor! He strives to find the root cause of the pain and address it from there. I would highly recommend them to all family and friends
