I have to be honest and say I was VERY turned off by the wait time and how slow the office staff was. They were not very prepared and they did not pay much attention to the detail, which slowed theprocess even more but when I met with Dr. Udochi I was VERY pleased. She was extremely sweet, very knowledgeable, thorough and was on top of everything. I'll take the interaction with the office staff as a one time hiccup because I've seen so many compliments pertaining to other patients visits. Overall, I'm so happy I was able to find her and that I now have a physician who cares for her patients the way I have been searching for !

I am very disappointed with this office. I made an appointment online for 9:15 am and it was over 2 hrs until I was seen! I think that is very unreasonable. I realize emergencies come up on both the drs sideand the patience's side but I sense that is is the norm here and not an exception.

Dr. Udochi is an outstanding physician! I appreciate her matter of fact approach with just the right amount of compassion and empathy. She breaks down the care plan in layman's terms allowing the patient to have an active role in their healthcare. I am so excited to have found her.

I've been going to Dr. Udochi for years, she is excellent. Conveniently close to my residence and takes my insurance. She is very thorough with her patients and her professionalism is top notch. I have recommended my own family and friendsto her, so I would definitely recommend her to any in need of a PCP.

Friendly office staff, warm and professional. However the wait time for each step of the process (registration, triage and then finally seeing the doctor) took much time. The practice seems to have a lot of patients and is regularly busy. Perhapsa estimated wait time should be posted just to give patients a heads up. Once seen by the physician I could see why they are so busy. She is very warm and caring and also very knowledgeable. She picked up on things with one visit that other healthcare professionals have never noticed. I would recommend this practice to others but warn them of the long wait time.

Dr. Udochi is always prompt, cheerful, caring, and professional. The doctor's prognosis was accurate, and the treatment successful. I was so impressed with Dr. Udochi, and her staff that I have made her my primary care physician. Her promptservice and cheerful, and caring manner are what sealed the deal. I highly recommend Dr. Udochi and Millennium, they will take great care to see that you get and stay healthy.

Always a stress-free visit. Wonderful staff and providers but Dr. Udochi always my favorite and this may sound odd, but I consider her a friend after alll these years. She is ALWAYS willing to help me and my family members/friends whenit comes to anything medical or anything concerning our health and well being. Anyone who needs a doc that asks me, she is the ONLY answer I give. And I don’t take that lightly, I have a very large extended family and would trust their medical care to Dr Udochi and her alone. My whole family has been through many different trying medical “situations”- illnesses, surgeries and yes unfortunately several deaths involving countless doctors, hospitals, specialists, you name it. There is not one other doctor I will trust with my family members health. To be totally honest and frank, I believe that a couple of the deaths may have even been preventable had the person been under Dr Udochis care. I mean that wholeheartedly and quite literally.. I have posted this part before, but will say it again for anyone considering Dr Udochi as a primary care doctor, I drive about 45 minutes each way and have for over 12 years And I HAVE to see her at least once a month for my medications and often times more depending on what’s going on with my health. I could easily find a doctor within 5 minutes from my house and could also easily see a doctor from Hopkins, University of MD, and many other well known institutions close in our area, yet Im still with Dr Udochi 12 years after first meeting her. Obviously I get nothing for posting my review yet feel compelled to share Dr Udochi with others who are looking for a doctor, especially after what I have experienced myself and with family, when it comes to medical care. Dr Udochi has been a blessing in my life and I consider her to play a very important role in regard to my overall well being. I lied, ??I DO get something for posting my thoughts, experiences and opinions about Dr Udochi, a sincere thank you from her and that’s even more than I expect or want from taking the time to do this.

As always, Dr. Udochi is an amazing doctor. She genuinely cares about her patients. She takes her time to assess and identify the problem. She diagnosed the problem and made me feel like i would get better. I am leaving MDand will have to find another physician. I am deeply saddened because my family has never had such a caring and thorough Doctor/friend.

The waiting room was complete chaos with children running around and screaming. I had to wait about 1 hour and 15 minutes before eventually I went looking for the doctor. After finally seeing the doctor, they let me know they hadto refer me to another doctor for the procedure I need (after I said many times why I was coming for the visit). Not a good experience!

She seemed very experienced. I am very critical of people, specially doctors. She was very concerned. One of the nurses did seem disoriented and confused on what to do. I hope she is new to the practice. She was also handlingthe mask and i didnt feel that she had washed her hands. Her hands and arms reeked of cigarettes. Very unpleasant and unprofessional.

Dr. Udochi is the absolute best. I came to her with a complex chronic medical issue, after being seen by many doctors who provided me with no answer. Desperate and confused she was able to stabilize my condition and refer meto an excillent specialist who was able to provide me with a full diagnosis and treatment. I owe so much to this amazing woman. Seriously the best physician in the DMV. Ive been a loyal patient since

I have been a patient of Dr. Udochi's for over 10 years!! She is hands down, the BEST, most caring, compassionate and awesome doctor I have seen! Over the years, I have been to many, many doctors of all specialties allover Maryland and beyond, from Johns Hopkins, to University of MD, all the way to the renowned Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, and Dr. Udochi has been, and will remain my #1 favorite doctor. She truly cares for every patient and goes above and beyond to take care of your overall health and well being. Dr. udochi treats my children as well. I trust Dr. Udochi with the health of my entire family and recommend her to everyone!

What is the point of making an appointment if i am going to be made to wait for almost 2HOURs??? The first time i went there i arrived right at the time of my appointment(1.30pm) so i let it go becauseusually one should arrive 15-30 minutes early , so i took responsibility for that but the next time i went for my follow up i arrived one hour early(10.30 am, appointment was at 11.30am but was seen at 12.30am) and the place wasn't even packed. I would not advice anyone to go there.
