It was my first time and I liked the way how me and my 2 year old getting treated. Very friendly and informative. I told Dr Egbe my concern and she took her time and ordered a X-ray as well, just to be sure. I’ll definitely keep going to her.

Too quick to write a script for medication & not enough of saying the side effects for toddlers. What kid do you know drink enough water to flush of the meds issued by doctors. She stated she did not go to school for natural remedies

We've been going to to Dr.Egbe Since my daughter was a new born, she's now 4 years old & we've not once had a bad experience. She is always thorough & most importantly we trust her with our daughters care!! Irecommend everyone looking for a pediatrician go to her because I feel like she actually cares, compared to other Drs. That we've seen. We love her.

I would have been seen in less time but both of my babies were new patients. Enjoyed the experience and the entire staff. By the time we actually got to see the doctor both of my babies were restless and fussy. Nobody seemed bothered . They were actually very helpful !!! I believe we have finally found our permanent pediatrician than mom and dad can agree on and we are even driving across the city just to see her!!

We waited a long time to just get in to see her. Once in we waited more for her to even enter the room. Once she came in the room she had 2-3 others watching and had them examine my daughter.She was not friendly at all, nor was she professional. She would stop her examine and start talking personal business with the others in the room. She also had no idea what type of rash was on my daughter, she just took a guess and said she does not know what it is. I would NOT take her back there at all. The nurses were very nice tho.

I went there for my daughter's abdominal pain. While I was explaining to her, she kept turning to her intern and making faces about the things I have said and laughing. That made me quite uncomfortable.

My kids have been going to this doctor for a long time, but I don't know what has gotten into her. Her bedside manner was terrible , she tried to show off in front of her interns, and she no longerreads previous notes to find out about previous problems. She sent my daughter to do a chest ultrasound at a place that doesn't even do that and I am sure she will know exactly who this review is coming from and I am glad.

This doctor is no longer professional and will be losing a lot of business. Sure you are the doctor, but sometimes doctors need to listen to their patients.

My child is a patient of Dr. Egbe. The doctor and staff are wonderful but the wait time is horrible. I waited a little over an hour before being called into a room, this is even after I had completed allthe forms online to supposedly speed up the check-in process.
