Excellent OB. I was recommended to her by several of my friends when experiencing my first pregnancy. She is quick, efficient and communicates everything clearly. She listened to any concerns I had and was always compassionate. I had some complications during delivery and she handled them well. All of the nurses in her office are extremely helpful and willing to answer any questions you have as well. I will continue to use her as my OBGYN and with any future pregnancies.

Dr. Obiekwe appears to be a nice person but that's it.She is faster in&out the exam room than you can use the bathroom.She doesn't explain things&there is no room to ask questions.Appointments are made without notification.Results get lost&nurses want to redue the tests even though it's unnecessary.Nurses give the result that everything is fine&change the statement the next day.You almost feel like a number at the slaughterhouse-you never know what's coming next&what they are going to do!

I chose Dr. Obiekwe for my OB/GYN based on multiple recommendations for my pregnancy in 2008/2009, when she was with another clinic. I've heard she's great for normal pregnancies. However, she aggressively ignored all of my concerns in appointments, and then I nearly died with HELLP syndrome. 3 days before my emergency c-section (her partner saved my life), she released me from the hospital with +3 protein in urine,high blood pressure, elevated liver enzymes, and lowered platelets. Look it up.

To be fair Dr. Obiekwe is an excellent doctor if you're just having something simple done like an annual exam. That's it. I had a hysterectomy. Her bedside manner is lousy, the nurses all acted annoyed asking post-op questions. I had an issue with the narcotics post-op, went to Dr. Obiekwe had me feeling like I was a drug addict AND making up the pain 4 days after surger. I was told when to come for a follow-up and no appt was ever actually scheduled. Avoid her.

Horrible bedside manner. She doesn't explain everything and pushes procedures on you. She tried to bully me into having a procedure done without having medical evidence that I needed it. She told me she didn't know what was wrong with me but tried to force me to have a procedure. She have me results from a biopsy while in the middle of a papsmear. They lost results, told me wrong results and then tried to make me come back for the same test because they forgot I had already done them. Horrible.

She is absolutely wonderful. I received great care, she listened to me, she respected my opinion, she communicated clearly and made sure we understood what was going on at all times. She was down to earth and relatable but she also was very confident and competent. When the day came for our little one to arrive she was there with her big smile, positive attitude and professional know how. She also advocated for myself and our baby when hospital staff were not on their A-game.

Absolutely terrible. Waited over an hour and a half to be seen. Was called by a diagnostic center informing me she had scheduled a test for me without my knowledge, she never told me why I would need this test and I specifically asked at least twice during my appointment if everything was fine. absolutely outrageous, cancelled all further appointments with her.
