As a 34 y.o. woman seeking fertility but plagued with submucosal fibroids, Dr. Acholonu came highly recommended from my OB-Gyn for his expertise in surgical fibroid removal. He performed both laparoscopic and hysteroscopic myomectomies On me in 2014. He was attentive, assuring and even made personal follow-up phone calls post-surgery. I was so impressed by that in this digital age of computer-generated surveys. Now 3 years later, I am naturally pregnant with my first child & could not be happier

Dr. Acholonu is an excellent doctor. Great bedside manner. Had surgery and recovery was as quick and painless as possible because he uses the most advanced and least invasive techniques. It was a nurse who pulled me aside and told me to switch to him. Truly greatful. Donna

Dr. Acholonu is an excellent Doctor. He performed my Myomectomy earlier this year. His bedside manner was amazing as he checked on me when I was out of anesthesia and also called the next day to see how I was doing. His office assistant is very thorough as well as she follows up with concerns.
