She doesn't listen to her patients. I was in pain and she had a sonogram on something that wasn't hurting me. When I asked for it on the right place she wouldn't give me an order to do that. I went to someone else.

I do no feel that the doctor listened to me or respected my concerns. This was a first time physical with her and she spent 10 minutes with me. I also asked if I could be retested for lymes and havemy blood work sent to a different lab because I am still having symptoms. She told me she would not do any of that and my joint pain issues are probably depression and weight. Suggested I go to a psychiatrist.

I saw this doctor twice. Both times were very bad experiences!! Her and her staff were rude, unprofessional, horrible bedside manner. I transferred to another State, and went to have all of my meds refilled prior to my move. When Iarrived to the pharmacy she forgot to enter some of my meds. I was already in another State. The Hispanic receptionist was very pleasant, however the African American (AA) one was rude and used profanity (I am AA-so nothing to do with race). I thought by requesting to speak with the doctor who had me on hold for 40 minutes, it would be a different outcome. Instead of admitting her fault, she yelled and hung -up on me and refused to transfer my doctor records, and they would not answer the call RUNNNN!!! Do not go to this doctor!

She was great. Listened to all my concerns and answered all of my questions. Only issue I have is regarding their fax machine, Ive had paper work faxed over there multiple times this week and they even told my other doctorthey recieved them buf when I call and ask if they recieved it they tell me no they havent. So I dont understand whats going on with that. Other than that though, everything was great and I would highly recommend her.

I went in to see Dr. Ofori-Awuah for a yearly check up.. I cant say that it was much of a check up, since my weight, height, and blood pressure were the only things that were checked. No blood work, orother examinations were done. I am a bit disappointed about that

The doctor was friendly but provided stern advice in matters of my health that I needed to hear. She was thorough and took the time to listen to me. I didn't feel like I was being rushed out of her officebecause another patient was waiting as was ALWAYS the case with my doctors at Kaiser Permanente.
