I received stem cell therapy at Doctor Obi's clinic in March 2018 in the hope of avoiding surgery for my back, knee, and foot. The back had a herniated disk, the knee has worn out cartilage, and the foot had severe arthritis. The knee and foot were both injected with the back receiving twelve injections. Doctor Obi stated that the stem cell count received from my body fat was high, over eighteen million. Prior to the injections, Doctor Obi advised me that 80% of his clients had positive results. He did not hide the fact that I may have no positive results. The cost was $15,000. The hope from Doctor Obi, as well as, other proponents of stem cell therapy online was that the injections could rebuild the disk and cartilage, and repair the arthritic foot. Doctor Obi expected results in a few weeks. When those results did not materalize I received subsequent injections of protein rich plasma in the knee. That seemed to improve the knee, but only for a week or so. During the evaluati

Staff and surgeon are friendly. You feel like you really matter to them. The issue is if you have problems afterwards and point them out. At first they will make you feel like you're imagining things then finally admit something might be going on. Promises are made but are not kept.

Dr. Obi is extremely caring and talented. He took time to explain the stem cell revitalization that I am considering. He also explained vitamin therapy in detail. His staff is dedicated to making their patients feel at ease while remaining professional.

Have bad scars from a breast reduction/lift. His response was, “well, they look better than what you had before”. Bottom line, all he wanted was my $$. Definitely would not recommend him whatsoever

I came in one week requesting a breast reduction & lift. They had my surgery scheduled for the following week. Their staff is amazing, very friendly & made you feel very comfortable. Dr Obi explained everything he would be doing & said he would go over with it me again. The day of surgery, everyone was so wonderful. I've had two follow ups the week after surgery & is recovery very well. Wonderful staff, amazing doctor!!!!

Met him In 2016. His recommendation was to lose 20lbs more as I had already lost a good amount which was the reason for my surgery. He told me he would do my surgery if I done so. I have done my part now all I hear are excuses. Either his staff is in sufficient or he is too busy to f/u with his patients. His suggestions gave me hope that after over 15 yrs of needing this surgery this would happen. He has yet to call me to discuss. I feel very much deceived as well as my time was wasted.
