Get your meds and go. He doesn't seem to ever sit and talk and try to get in my son's head a little. I thought that's what psychiatry was about. Scheduled appt is 4:45. Arrived at 4:40 behind someone whose appt was at 5. Actually held the door for them. They took them first because they walked in first.

My Grandchildren were a mess. They had been to other Peds. For the problems that they have, to no good results. Now they have a regular routine of meds and they are functioning better no Great. Their daily routine and sleep habits are so much better. Thx Dr. O. The McGauhey Boys! And GrandMa! !!!!!

Dr. O doesn't seem to want to try anything different. Thats why I started to see a different doctor, my previous Dr wouldn't try anything new, regardless of the medications not working, for well over 7 months. it's trial and error, so I need to see someone who's willing to try something else after months of no improvement. Front desk girls are HORRIBLE. Ive left 5 voicemails in over 16 days&called every other day or every-day, just to reschedule an appt. They're rude & unreliable ANSWR THE PHONE

Dr. Osuchukwu is inconsiderate and rude. He didn't care about anything I had to say, despite him ASKING me to tell him. However, if you can get past his insensitive, self-centered, and disrespectful attitude, then he's an okay doctor to work with while you're looking for a better one. I should mention though that time in the waiting room is wildly variable. I've waited between 5 minutes and 2 hours before. Be wary about what he prescribes, too. I feel like he just likes to write prescriptions.

If I could give zero stars I would. Every time I spoke he I erupted me and at one point said he did not care what I had to say. He spent less than 15 minutes with my child before prescribing over 3 serious medications. When I asked why those medications he asked me why I wouldn't want my child to take them. He spoke most of the time and I am just not sure how he even is able to give a proper diagnosis when he does not let anyone speak other than himself. I wonder if he is even licensed.
