When first being seen by Dr. Egwu I was nervous and suffering from extreme discomfort. Dr. Egwu has a way of making you informed and feel at ease. He is quick with getting you as comfortable as you can be based on your own injury. His nurse is one of the most patient and friendly yet professional and cares about your recovery. To be honest the whole office staff is great. I have never really found that out of all the specialists I've seen.

Dr. Egwu & his staff are wonderful. The staff when checking in would take the time to get to know you. Dr. Egwu did surgery on my knee & has helped me through the hard times with it. I would & have recommended him to my friends.
