He was a sexist pig. The first thing out of this guy's mouth was, "so I see you are single that must be why you are stressed and have stomach problems." Later on during the consult he said "see the problemwith you women is you worry to much. that's why you are sick." I would never see this guy again. NEVER!!!!!

Horrible on all counts. Had me waiting for more than 2 hours and than talked to me for less than a minute. Several other patients were waiting for even longer. I also had an endoscopy with him and I was leftwaiting with a needle in my arm for more than an hour. Stay away from this doctor!

Unprofessional staff that give inconstant information and can not handle the simplest of tasks. Dr. Obioha has no respect for patient's time yet requires patients to provide 24 hr. notice for cancellations. Very disappointing experience.He works out of two locations and is doing to much at less than %100. I would not recommend him to anyone.

He was informative and emphasized the importance of colonoscopies for Blacks. I did not realize that Blacks should get colonoscopies as early as age 45.

He was incredibly helpful and was able to squeeze me in for an endoscopy the same day and was willing to squeeze me in to get the results the next week.

Let me say that I love this guy. He's incredibly open and friendly and honest. He is funny and puts you at ease. However, the wait is insane. On the day of the procedure, the anesthesiologist was 2 hours late, meaningmy colonoscopy was three hours late, which is a long time when you haven't eaten. If I could see him at another surgery center, I'd return. Otherwise, not so much.

Dr. Obiaha is excellent: upon analyzing my symptoms, he mentioned that treatment for my condition was now available, asked if I would like a copy of the relevant medical study he was looking at (a first) and called an expert atGeorgetown for me. Knows his stuff, is helpful, and spends a decent amount of time with each patient. I recommend him.
