All comment left by others are 100% true. My son has been w/ him almost 21/2yrs. Finding a news Dr. Even w/ an appt. You stand a good 90% chance of waiting 2hrs. or more. When you do see him only interaction he has w/ child is saying hello how are you and my child has autism and doesn't even try to encourage a response. When I try to have what is called an apporiate and professional conversation voicing my concerns, usual response is um um, write script,see you in 3mnths,& bill that insurance.$$

This has been an awful experience. Every 90 days i go in for med refills. Every 90 days the insurance company requests prior auth. The pharmacy sends requests to the office and i had to call no less than 15 times to get the office to say they would submit for prior auth. It is the office staff that ate terrible. The Dr is a jerk too. He just wants to write perscriptions and get you out of his face. Terrible rxperiences.

Dr. Nwokike has been managing my son's medications for the last 2 years. The least amount of time you will have in the waiting room is 20 minutes and that is if you schedule right before lunch time or the end of the day! If you want someone to just write prescriptions, he is the guy for you. If you actually need help of any kind, find someone else. I do not know how he is licensed to practice? If I could give no stars, I would.

If I could give no stars or negative stars I would! I willingly admitted myself to spring mountain treatment center for SEVERE anxiety and panic disorder. I was given a medication a few days before that Dr. Nwokike decided to keep me on. While I was there I had a reaction to this medication that made me burn up and feel like I was in a sauna for hours. When I told him this he just said, that's your anxiety, that's not a side effect of that medication, very unprofessional. Stay away from him.

Reason for visit was for 6 year old girl with emotional and possible physical abuse. His cellular phone rang at least 10 times with ringer on high volume. He answered his cellular phone when I was responding to him. He did not ever interview child. Admitted anxiety but did not care what was cause behind it. Falsified his reports to make it appear as though he interviewed child which he did not do. Do not see this doctor, he's a fraud! Staff horrible too.
