I can’t express how lovely Dr. Owusu-Sakyi is. She’s so warm, kind, patient, and receptive to the knowledge you have about yourself. Her care is very personal and non-judgmental. She listens and tailors her advice to your experiences. The waittime has improved a lot since I first started seeing her.

While I constantly anticipate any doctor's visit with trepidation, once I actually spoke to the doctor and interacted with her, it was an excellent experience. I was not berated, scolded or made to feel at fault as I had with aprevious (different) doctor, but instead was treated with compassion and a true interest in helping me. She has been a Godsend as a doctor.

Great doctor. Excellent communicator. Very professional and detailed oriented. Makes you feel at home. Takes time to go over patient's reason for visit, examine and discuss thoroughly patient's medical records and how best to treat any ailment. One of the best doctor's my wife and I have encountered.

I love her but there has to be a way to cut down on the wait. Or at least provide me the option to check in, leave, come back when it’s time. I could get gas, coffee and do some groceryshopping for as long as it takes. Maybe a text message saying I’m next? But it doesn’t make sense that I’m early/on time and then kept waiting for almost two hours!!!

This has been one of my best visits in a long time the wait was minimum and it reminded me of when I first started going to her years ago. She is a great doctor love her to death. It's justone of her staff I hate going to the office for but I try and hope not to have contact with at all while im there she left a bad taste in my mouth on several occasions not professional at all. The rest of her staff are great friendly and professional. If you need a thorough caring knowledgeable doctor she is your doctor give her a try.

So glad I found a doctor that took her time and really explained everything to me. She was wonderful and I felt like I was put on the right track again. The front staff is also wonderful and very pleasant, whichis sometimes hard to find these days. Did not mind waiting 45 minutes because she took 45 minutes to really exam me in the room and go over all my information. Thanks a bunch!!

This lovely individual was nothing but professional and caring. She made me feel at ease, something my original family doctor couldn't do. She appears to be concerned with my well-being and becoming as healthy as possible and nothing more thanthat. I felt I could be completely honest with her without judgement or being chastised by her and I look forward to implementing her helpful suggestions.

She is an excellent doctor with a lot of patience for each client that comes to see her, she doesn't rush you off in seconds or minutes like most doctors do. But at the end of your consultation with her, youwould have had a thorough understanding of your health issues and a plan put in place for your total recovery. She is the BEST I have met so far.
