    Not impressed. Very impersonal and does not explain anything. I had an epidural done and he put me under...for a shot in the lower back. I was sick for days after. Went to another docter and had another epidural done and it took longer to get the gown on then the shot. Left fine and no problems.

    In the world of pain, an individual can experience so many difficult issues, inside the medical profession. I've dealt with terrible pain most of my life and continue to be dearly grateful for the Dr. Ajakwe team. It's the people in any organization that makes the difference but in this world.... Team Ajakwe rules!

    Dr. Ajakwe, and his team, care. Simply stated, they do what ever they must do to ensure their patients receive the best care. From the moment you walk in and deal with their administration, and through all the stages of the healing process, they take the time to understand how to best resolve your personal issues, then facilitate a program custom suited to your specific needs. I've been extremely impressed with their care and service and would highly recommend their organization.
