Patient Comments (8)
Washington, DC |
My experience at this practice was horrible. In order to schedule my first appointment, I had great difficulty understanding her foreign staff. At my first appointment, I waited over an hour after checking in before anyone knew I was there. Dr. Udochi was brash, rude and unwilling to do anything but treat me like a number! When I shared my concerns, she yelled at me and mocked me, even though she was wrong. Even though I pay $600 a mo. for insurance it cost $500! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!
in Ellicott City, MD |
Dr. Udochi is warm but her office is chaotic and not well organized. It feels like some version of a health farm with an emphasis on doing too much with nothing done too well. The Labcorp facility on site is a mess with several samples always commingled. Her NP just needs to put on her big girl pants and concentrate on care. It's just a big mess
Baltimore, MD |
I have been coming to see Dr Udochi for over 10 years now and she is the best
Columbia, MD |
I do not recommend this doctor. She is rude and harsh.
West Friendship, MD |
Doctor Udochi and her ENTIRE staff put the patient first in EVERY situation, regardless of insurance coverage or economic situation. Her culturally diverse practice welcomes each patient with genuine hospitality with professional and proficient care. I've been a patient for over 7 years and am SO thankful for this team and their dedication to total wellness
in ChevyChase, MD |
Dr Udochi has been my doctor for 2 years. She has been extremely patient with me in dealing with very difficult medical issues I have had. She has also demonstrated that she cares and goes beyond what is usually required of her by checking up on me even after hours. I also found her billing to be very reasonable. She is highly recommended.

Dr. Udochi is the very best doctor in the state. She is very thorough, caring, attentive, intelligent. She is spot on with her diagnostics. Giving the best advice or medication to match a condition. I have been with her for over 11 years. And have never been given incorrect or bad advice. She puts much thought into matching diagnosis with treatment. She listens very closely to patients symptoms & complaints. She is not swayed by perks or kickbacks of pharmaceutical companies. I highly recommend.
in Columbia, MD |
The first 4 years were good, then she got greedy and the last 5 years were not satisfactory, 3 hour wait just to get into a room, to menu student doctors, to much turn over with her staff, my insurance card says office visit 20 dollars, she charged me and every other patient 120. 00 dollars, I watched this go on for 3 hours.
