This Doctor's office is terrible. They scheduled a phone appointment with my husband to discuss his concerns with diabetis and charged him $15 and then never called him. We have requested a reimbursement and they have never responded to our calls. There is a voicemail set up and we leave a mesage but NOONE calls back.

Dr. Nwokike is my Endocrinologist. I enjoy going to a specialist who understands my disease and talks to me at my level. Dr. Nwokike is a good, professional, knowledgeable doctor. She won't steer you wrong. But do as she says! LOL

Dr. Maria Nwokike is a very compassionate, sweet and kind doctor!! I've been always getting my lab results on time... No problem. She's very attentive, gives you all the time you need.. and more. She cares about you and want you to get better. Very smart and knowledgeable. I didn't find anything wrong with her staff and the office is always clean. From my lots of experience most doc. rush to the next patient. I love this doctor, one of a kind, worth my time and my health!! / C.k

This is the worst practice in all of Las Vegas, Dr. Nwokike is very unorganized, It took her and her staff 7 weeks to give me results from an xray she ordered. And if I hadn't kept following up I would have never gotten my result. Her staff is unfriendly unorganized and incompetent. They lost my lab results but told me they had them so I waited for an 1 1/2 to be told that they couldn't find them... then magically they appear. I have never been to a worse Dr!!
