Lakeland, FL |
Dr. Nwakakwa is the worst doctor I ever had the misfortune to have treat me. I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and needed a stent placed in the area of my small intestine. After waiting on 2 separate occasions (while in the hospital) he (or his staff) cancelled my procedure after I had been NPO for over 18 hours each time. When the procedure was finally done he gave different information to my husband than he gave to the nursing staff. If I could rate him (-) I would do that.

The worst MD on the planet!! Wow did he become a doctor?? So scary, he was so concerned about using his voice activated computer and doing back stretches, that he couldn't even give me attention. I would never recommend him. He told me my rectal bleed was no big deal. But offered no explanation nothing ,

I am done with this Doctor as he told me he couldn't help me and I should go to an urgent care. I paid my $50.00 co-pay and he refused to help me.
