Dr. Nwoko is, in my opinion, the best hand surgeon around. He is very knowledgeable, kind, and.compassionate. He explained everything in detail and spent as much time with me as needed. His Nurse and office staff are superior as well.
in Wake Forest, NC |
Dr. Nwoko and Wake Ortho are top notch practice. He is very thorough and will try conservative approach before doing surgery. My 13 year old broke his elbow in 4th grade and has had issues ever since. We went to see Dr. Nwoko last summer and after trying every non surgical option surgery was only option. My son had surgery today and Nwoko was very good at explaining to us what he did and what the plan was during his recovery. Highly recommend him. We also love his medical assistant Jamie.
in Rocky Mount, NC |
Besides being great eye candy, he was patient with his patients. I'm a nurse who is very particular about my kids as well as any parent but he took the time to show me step by step. I was initially worried because I requested another but I'm glad we were set up with him. In the end he gave directions to both my daughter and I. Made sure we were clear about the next few weeks of care and even called to check on her after her emergency surgery. All I can say is GO Dr. Nwoko! #WakeOrthoRocks #GoDoc
