Awesome

Dr. Okonkwo surpassed my expectations. I heard he was an impressive surgeon, but he made me feel at ease during my appointment and spoke to me in a way that I could understand my issues. I feel much better having him on my side as I tackle this health issue. He truly seems invested and passionate about his work.

I had to wait three hours to see the doctor and he was very apologetic for the wait... but the wait time was far too long.
