My initial interaction w/Dr. Mbaoma was after I was admitted because of low hemoglobins. I was diagnosed with stage 4 NHL. He was a pleasant doctor so I decided to let him treat my NHL. After 6 rounds of chemo and a couple of follow up visits, he disappeared, “family issue”. The receptionist was NEVER pleasant. Never had a smile. We, the patient, come in with fear. A simple smile melts some fears. I was reassured he was coming back. Decided to go to North Western Hospital, Chicago. My new doctor would NOT have used chemo only rituxan. Although it’s a long drive to NW hospital. It’s well worth the great doctor, care, and pleasant staff.

My husband was diagnosed with NHL in October of 2019. He was started on high dose chemo and developed many side effects and complications. Dr. Mbaoma disappeared with no notice or even a call from the office that we would now be treated by another physician in the office. I don't think anyone ever really read or reviewed the entire chart for information about him. They just tried to treat a disease. No one ever really new the whole story about him until we asked our family doctor to intercede for us. He expired in June and the only contact from the office were bills. If you go to him ask if he is planning on leaving his patients again with out telling them.

If I could give zero stars I would. Dr. Mbaoma did not reach out with a treatment plan, incorrectly sent a referral, and is generally incompetent. I would not trust him with anything, least of all a life.

At a time where our family thought of giving up, Dr. Mbaoma lifted our spirits and gave us hope again. He was my mothers oncologist and we couldn't have asked for anyone better. He is kind, caring, knowledgeable, answered all our questions and never rushed us. I don't know what we would have done without him!
