Usually I am very satisfied with Dr. Onukogu's services but now I think I will be moving on to a different provider. This time when I came to see her, I had 2 issues- I needed a letter for school, and I had a recurring infection. I was 5 min. early for my appointment but ended up waiting 45+ minutes before I was taken back to see her. And then there was another 10-15 minutes of vital taking, waiting,, waiting and then the Dr! When I did see her, I explained what I needed, she took tons of notes, I said I needed it by Z and she said she could do it by at the latest X (several days earlier). Instead, I had to follow up multiple times to receive it on Z. And it arrived after the office closed. For a letter that took so much effort, it was in total 2-3 sentences long which in the end ensured that I did not receive all of the accommodations I needed.

It was okay. The wait was a little longer than expected considering I was the first one in the office, but she explained it by saying she had to be in the emergency room earlier so I understood. She was nice and helped me with the concerns I had. I didn't feel uncomfortable about anything at all.

I was very happy with the reception staff, they politely assisted me in filling in the Registration Form where I was not sure. And Dr. Onukogu was very nice to us. It was our first visit but seemed like we had met before. She has a passion for her job and not only money. Continue your good work Doctor. Rose

The service from the doctor, resident, and receptionist were good. However, twice I received a bill from the office that should have been covered by my insurance. When I contacted my insurance to see why it wasn't covered, they informed me the office had never even put in a claim. I had to go back and forth the office and my insurance to get it solved, and for the quality it really was not worth the hassle.

The office was clean, the staff seemed to be genuinely friendly, and I waited for less than 10 minutes to be seen (though I can't say if this is always the case as this was my first visit). Dr. Onukogu was kind, efficient, and comprehensive during my appointment. I could not be happier with my choice of doctor.

She seemed very disinterested throughout-- when I told her that I had some weird pains in my chest area, she just shrugged and didn't seem interested in finding out what the problem could be. I was told upon arrival that I couldn't get my blood work done during my physical, because the right person wasn't there (no one mentioned this in advance, just told me when I got there). Overall, no one really seemed to care about me or my health. I will not return there.

Would not recommend. Next to no exam. Waste of time....and their scale was wrong! I checked later that day at my fitness center (which is regularly calibrated) and this office's scale was off by 8 pounds. Way to make a patient feel good.... lol

I was late to my appt by 5min, but I was seen within 10 min. I really like her, she came across as thorough, understanding, and caring. I love the location's convenience, and the staff diligently called me daily for 5 days before my first appt to get more info, that means a lot to mean (i.e., how much effort they put in for their work and care of me). They only do blood drawing on mon/wed/fri, so if you know your presenting problem needs that, schedule them at once.

The doctor herself is very professional and has a good bedside matter. The front desk staff, however, can be a bit rude at times. They were gossiping about another patient one time I was there and another time they were rather dismissive of a woman trying to express her complaints. Also, they use a third party billing company that can be very difficult to get ahold of if you end up needing to contact them to resolve billing issues.
