Dr. Chuke is a second-generation physician with over 20 years experience as a practicing internist. He received his medical degree from the University of Nigeria, where he graduated at the top of his class.

With his practice, patients will know that they will be seeing me at each visit which will help to establish an ideal doctor/patient relationship more quickly and effectively than with a larger group practice where a patient may have to see different providers.

This place seemed shady. The doctor answered the phone and handled all the paperwork. He did not have a receptionist. Furthermore, he doesn’t provide many services in the office. For a simple yearly physical, I had to go to another centerfor all the blood work. Because he had switched my appointment from 10AM to 4PM, I couldn’t get my lab tests completed on the same day. This information was not provided to me prior to booking my appointment.

Dr Chuke has fantastic bedside manner in not only being very pleasant and personable as well as remembering you and previous visits/issues to the tee but also explains in a laymen/understanding manner making it a very comfortable visit. I willcertainly continue with him as a primary physician and he may even be the encouragement needed to this bad patient to take charge of my medical health with him as a partner! -Kim K

Dr. Chuke is nice and very caring, however me and my husband had both bad experience with his booking. The appointment time often changes or even if we booked it, he called and changed it. Or once his office was closed even though we booked the appointment.

This was my first visit to this physician, and I was running 30 minutes late. Despite my tardiness, the staff patiently waited for me and the doctor saw me within 5 minutes of checking in. Please note that this was ona Saturday afternoon, as they were preparing to close the office. I was welcomed with no underlying attitude; great customer service.

My overall experience with Dr. Chuke (choo-kay) was very good. I was admitted promptly upon arriving to my appointment on time. The reason for my visit was to attain a physical, which for may doctors takes months in advance, but hehad immediate availability. It can also be difficult to find doctors who accept new patients, which he did. He was very respectful, kind, and sincere. He listened to my every concern and provided ample feedback. He was thorough and methodical in his examination process. His exam rooms were fully equipped with new updated equipment. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an Internal medicine doctor.
