Patient Comments (6)
in Youngstown, OH |
Saw Dr. Ugokwe and was told to do therapy, epidurals and follow up in 6 weeks. When I called to schedule the follow up the person I spoke with informed me that I would have to do the epidurals - which I chose not to do after speaking with several people that say they do not work and are only a temporary fix - and I would have to completely quit smoking before I could schedule an appointment to even speak with him. Sounds like a form of discrimination to me -- won't be bothering to call again.

Excellent physician!!! And has a sense of humor!!!!!
in Columbus, OH |
The ONLY option for successful neurosurgy in the area and the only physician I would ever recommend for treatment and/or consultation. Extremely intelligent, took the time to explain everything, go over questions/concerns, provided information, and very personable. The greatest healthcare team and office staff I have ever come across.

It took Dr. Ugokwe 6 weeks after my MRI to tell me about my results. I called several times and his office told him of my test results. When he finally called he left out some of the information on the MRI. I had a new problem that showed up on the MRI and my condition had gotten worse.

Dr Ugokwe is a great doctor. I highly recommend him.
in Raleigh, NC |
Dr. Ugokwe successfully operated on my elderly father for a subdural hematoma. When he came to talk with the family right after, he could not have been more caring, patient and thorough. Though he's a very busy man with a heavy workload, he acted like he had all the time in the world for us and would stay with us as long as needed.
