Patient Comments (5)
in SCS, MI |
The doctor was called into consult when I was in R.O. Beaumont. Interestingly none of the other services involved would admit they had brought him in. It was obvious when he first spoke that he had not read any of the information in my file. He did not know I was already on medication. After 5 minutes of setting him straight on history he decided to drop my medication dose from 10 mg 2x/day to 2.5 mg/day. he changed that twice before I ever got any medication although my blood sugar was fine.

Dr. Igwe, is a kind compassionate and attentive doc. No doctor spends 35 min listening, examining, and discerning the problem of a patient. Dr. Igwe did , and there was a mutual conversation and genuine concern. IBest doc I've need to in 20 yrs.

What a blessing! He took time during the initial exam to discuss my concerns and questions. He is professional, knowledgeable, patient and has a personality that immediately put me at ease. Within months my thyroid levels were restored to normal. I have recommended Dr. Igwe to family and friends with confidence.
