Patient Comments (3)
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Extremely rude and unprofessional.
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Rude, VERY loud (can hear him talking about other patient's private info when he was more than 15 feet away), made me feel very uncomfortable when he interviewing me: seemed like he was in rush, didn't have time for me or I was taking too long to answer his questions. When results from lab came back and some thing were abnormal, I had questions and he was unwilling or unable help me understand them. Then I search for his license and I see he is practicing ER medicine when he not trained as one.

My mom went to Broward Health North and Dr. Chukuma was dr on duty in ER. At the time, she was not diagnosed as having a stroke yet. Everyone knows importance of treating stroke timely. Yet she waited for hours in ER. Finally, after about 8 hours, I left to go home. During that time, dr only talked to me once and said "Why wasn't she in an assisted living facility?" based on only talking to my mom, not confirming info w/ me. Later they confirmed stroke and later she lost use of her left arm/leg.
