Dr Nwojo and his staff have been awesome. My daughter has been to see them a few times and even had surgery by Dr Nwojo and I can't Express how thankful we are to have them. The front office was friendly and helpful. The nurses helped my 10 yr old daughter feel comfortable and not scared at all, and Dr Nwojo is very knowledgeable, comforting and easy to talk to. We will definitely continue to recommend them highly to anyone.

Kerry-Ann Demetrius – Jul 05, 2019
Let's put it this way, if I can take back one mistake that I have ever made in my whole entire life it would be to take back from allowing Dr. Nwojo from operating on my child. As a parent I'm supposed to protect my child and I feel like I failed by putting him into this Monster's hands (Dr. Nwojo). I hope there is a special place in hell waiting for him.

He ruined my child with septoplasty. We now have to travel to Houston children's hospital to see the ENT. All ENTs that have seen my child are disgusted with Dr Nwojo's surgery. Turn out the surgery was an unnecessary adult surgery that was just to money off of us. We now have to wait till our kid is 18 and fully developed so that they can do a revision. My child has trouble speaking now as if somebody is pinching their nose very tigh. Can you just imagine someone altering your breathing as a child. This breaks my heart every day. We went to Nwojo because everyone said he was the best, maybe for an adult but not a child. From my experience keep your children with doctors that ONLY specialize in children! I hope no other parent will have to go through what we are going through.

I was referred to Dr. Nwojo in June 2018. Dr. Nwojo did a scope on me and found I had Laryngeal cancer. I was so scared and in shock, as you can imagine those words are very hard to hear. Dr. Nwojo answered all my questions and explained what my next step was. He is a very caring and hands on doctor. He is very gentle. His staff was so helpful that his nurse even called to check on me after my diagnosis. Thankfully, I am now in remission. I am grateful for the continual care of Dr. Nwojo.

J Holley in Odessa, TX – Feb 14, 2019
What a blessing to find a competent, caring, compassionate professional when you need it most. Dr Nwojo and was patient and kind in answering all my pre/post surgery questions. I couldn't have asked for a more skilled surgeon and I am pleased with the results and looking forward to a full recovery. The post operative care I received by Dr. Nwojo and was above and beyond the norm of what I expected, and the empathetic demeanor demonstrated by him I valued most. I have recommended him to family.

Nancy Kukielka in TX – Feb 13, 2019
I came to doctor Nwojo for a second opinion for my 4 year old son. The audiologist was great. Dr Nwojo was terrible. My son was anxious about seeing another doctor and rather than try to make him comfortable he threatened to give him a shot if he didn’t quiet down. Please do not take your child to this man. He is condescending and has absolutely no idea how to deal with children. I am shocked that a “professional” would act this way. The rest of the staff was very good.

Very dangerous doctor for a child who is going to have an operation! Please steer clear from any surgeries preformed by Dr. Nwojo. His septum surgeries are horrible he will leave the patient worst off than before surgery, and he will burn and fracture the turbinates without telling you.
