Patient Comments (4)
Largo, FL |
Dr. Obi cares about each patient very much. He isn't like American doctors and believes that he must take time with each patient. The clock doesn't seem to matter to him. He will go without sleep in order to spend the amount of time he thinks appropriate for each patient and family. His judgement is good, excellent, rather, and he cares where other neurologists don't. He'll call other doctors during an appointment to secure better care for you or try a new method or prescription, anything to get

The lack of communication from Dr Okonkwo-Onuigbo in the care of mother makes me question his compassion and professionalism.

He is very smart. I trust him with my life. He went over scans that another neuro misdiagnosed and caught it right away even based off my symptoms. He takes his time with every patient so sometimes the wait is long but hrs very great at what he does.
