I came in for my urgent colonoscopy during the pandemic. I was not hesitant to go there, as I know the staff are caring, professional, and thorough in all aspects of their care. They did not disappoint, taking precautions to make sure that their patients stay as safe as possible. Everyone was very warm and welcoming too. I am a nurse and appreciate Dr. Onwueme's thorough care. His care not only led to help that I needed for my GI issues, but for another major body system as well. He detected issues related to another health condition which led to early detection of the matter and quality of life enhancing surgery and reconstructive surgery involving the urinary system and more. I had been having issues for years and could not get to the bottom of the issue and the rare, specific type of MRI that he recommended found it all. He helps me with my GI issues and listens and always seems to know what will help. I am grateful for he and his staff's care and highly recommend them.

The staff at this facility was very pleasant and nice. Everyone seemed to be knowledgeable of their job. Greeted as I came through the door. Greeted again when taken into prep area. I was greeted a third time by another employee who asked questions and explained the next steps before the procedure. Last,I was greeted by Dr. Onwueme in the room where the procedure was to be performed. All went very well and I would recommend this facility and Dr. to my family, friends, and colleagues. Thanks for taking good care of me.

Wait time was a bit long but Dr explained that a patient with an extensive problem had come in and caused the visit to be extended. Dr Onwueme was very polite and was quickly able to identify my problem and ordered tests/procedure.

I went in for a second EGD procedure. The staff at the center are always so friendly but also very professional. They make sure you are comfortable before and after your procedures. The staff and doctor both answer any questions that you may have. They work together great and you can tell everyone has respect for Dr. Onwueme. They go out of their way to may you feel comfortable and Dr. Onwueme is a wonderful doctor.
