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!!
