Terrible. I think "dangerous" is a good description. After a couple of months of being ignored, lied to and let down I realized how untrustworthy she is.

When spends a lot of time with you, much more than most docs these days. I love how she’s offers me natural options to keep me healthy! Front desk staff was so nice and always helpful. Never had a problem getting through on the phone or with my refills. Not sure why that other reviewer is so angry. My experience was more than great there. Recommending Dr Ukanwa to all my family and friends who don’t have a doc yet!

She is not only the wrong choice but potentially dangerous. She and her staff are egregiously unprofessional, uncaring, and brutally concerned about profitability. Here are graphic examples: continuously busy phone phone signal for at least 5 consecutive days; punishment for not making a copay during the period the phone was continuously busy by refusing to provide refill for my Parkinson's medication, resulting in my extreme pain and suffering; and lack of any concern as to my health.
