I found Dr. Onwueme to be professional and direct. He has experience as well as the education and doesn't beat around the bush. I was nervous, and quickly learned that the only way to get through the procedure was to RELAX and let him do what he does best! It worked! I would definitely recommend him!

From the reception area all the way through my procedure, everyone was wonderful! Dr Onwueme is a gem! I was anxious about my routine colonoscopy, but would have to say it was a great experience!

Very immature and rude doctor that was not helpful at all but hindering. The office staff was equally rude and childish and unhelpful.

I was diagnosed with rectal cancer last June. I couldn’t have gotten through this without “Dr. O” and the doctors he referred me to. I am beyond grateful.

My total experience was awesome. The check-in staff were completely understanding when I shared that I left my ID and insurance card at home (provided it later). Dr. Onwueme was obviously on top of his game and very thorough. Most importantly, he spoke with complete candor. I really appreciated that more than anything. I'd recommend him any day to anyone with unresolved GI issues.

Dr. Onwueme is a caring professional who provides excellent care to his patients. Because of his caring manner and his encouragement to take care getting a cancerous mass removed from my colon - I am now cancer free and I am able to focus back on my recent retirement. I would highly recommend Dr. Onwueme to my closest friends, family and to anyone who might be putting off getting a routine colonoscopy.

Was referred by a co-worker to Dr. Onwueme, and I'm so glad I followed her advice. He was very patient, and explained everything about my symptoms. I felt comfortable and assured by his care, and have found the experience worthwhile in treating my condition.

Clueless. Spends as little as possible with his patients. I have an undiagnosed condition. His first solution was to schedule an endoscopy 5 weeks out, without regard for my diminished quality of life. During a follow up appointment admitted he was "stumped" and asked me what he should do next. I guess consulting with the other doctors in his practice would hurt his pride. Worthless

no follow-up. come see me every time so i can charge. if you care about your self, go see someone else. if a doctor does not follow with his patient, it mean that he does not care. so if you don't care about your self he is the perfect one for you.

Dr Onwueme performed an intricate procedure on my 90 year old mother, and saved her life. He has a wonderful personality and bedside manner and kept us family completely informed. I would not hesitate to recommend or go to Dr. Onwueme for any gastroenterology related problems.
