The office staff was very professional from the front desk staff to the doctor. I will definitely recommend them to my friends.
Dr. Uns is the best!
I love how they was smiling, was patient with my little one and know the right things to keep my little one attention. She lessened to what I was saying.
She's is so loving towards my children! It is like she is one of their beloved aunties. The boys, even when sick, are always excited to go see her.
Love the staff fast efficient and thorough
It was great all my concerns were answered. Plus I was reassured
My visit at the Lawrenville location has always been a postive experience for my child. Dr. Una is wonderful, informative and always provides a excellent experience. All of the staff membets are delightful as well.
Very informative and shows concern for what's best for the children.
Just leaving the peachtree corners location and I couldn't wait to get into my car to leave a review. My son has a severe heart condition that requires heavy monitoring and specifics in his care plan. Flexibility and understanding is a must, and patience is something I look for when finding my sons provider. We just moved from out of state and this is the second pediatric office I've tried. Leaving our medical team backs me and finding a new one in our new home has been very stressful and quite frightening to say the least. The first pediatric office was not a desirable encounter and I was very scared looking for another after that visit. It is difficult finding the right fit, but upon entering the office of Ivy League I knew right away I would love them, and the rest of the appointment continued to leave me highly satisfied. I left with the confidence knowing Dr. Una and her staff would be a part of my sons medical team for years to come. If you are in the area I highly recommend this team. From the office nursing staff to the doctor and location I was 100% pleased. Looking forward to working together for my sons best health!
Very nice doctor and super friendly, my 3 years old daughter loved her. Fast and easy visit.
Great first impression! Warm and friendly.
We have never seen her, but her nurse practitioner rather. The care has been great and I am very satisfied with the care we receive.
She is the best doctor in the county hands down.
Dr unachukwu was great

This was my second appointment with Dr. Una, and she is wonderful. She listened to all of my concerns and answered all of my questions. Some doctors rush you out and you forget to ask some of your questions but not Dr. Una, you feel like you are her only patient.
Nice clean office. No wait. Over all great doctor.
It was nice. Ppl where polite and attentive.
Dr.Una and her staff were extremely polite and professional. Even though they were doing a lot at the time no one there made me feel rushed. They took their time, listened, and tried to find solutions that best suited the parent and child. This is the BEST pediatrician I have ever taken my child to. I wish i could give 10 stars, they've outdone themselves.

Dr. Una is great! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a doctor. She is very knowledgeable and very, very informative. She speaks to you as the parent but also speaks to your child as the patient who had a valid voice in their own care. That was very important to me.
Dr. Una was very pleasant and I enjoyed her. My son has Autism and she was very understanding and worked well with him. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a caring doctor for their child.
She's very kind. The office and rooms need an interior make over.
Dr. Una was professional with a good bedside manner. The office itself could use some sprucing up.

Dr. Una really made my daughter comfortable about her problem. She even shared her own personal experience with my daughter so she can feel at ease
I thought that the service and the atmosphere was cozy and intimate. We were made to feel comfortable and at ease from the moment we arrived for our appointment. Good People!

Outstanding bedside manner with knowledgeable insight, and the entire staff was friendly and helpful!
I thought the doctor was wonderful, she made me feel very comfortable and confident that I am doing a great job as a new mom!!!
I thought the inside was a tad dismal looking, a tad worn. However my impression of the Drs intelligence has me totally at ease. I was forced out of old peds office due to ins change so I was very upset. Dr Una listened to my daughters issues and really addressed my concerns as a mother. Ill go back!!
Love this doctor....
She was very Nice & open to my View points
The best doctor ever
Dr. Una is simply amazing and her staff is very professional. I appreciate the fact that she always takes her time to listen to us and answers our questions without any anticipation. She's the best pediatrician in Georgia if you ask me. Give her a try and you won't be disappointed.
The office is nasty nasty nasty!!!! For a pediatrician, this office is the dirtiest i have ever been to:( The exam room has a dirty sink, dirty weight scale for the baby, the exam table... Smh.. And they want you to undress your baby and lay him on that old ragged nasty table!! No way! We walked out. Oh,& lobby is too small with old chairs... Imagine how fast germs spread in such small space!! And u wonder why your child got sick after visiting the pediatrician! I had read good reviews about this doc so I chose her! Doesn't anybody else notice the lack of hygiene in this office!!!
She was very friendly and professional. She gave me good advice for my daughter and she was very comforting.
The visit was great
The visit was great

She has the patience to listen a worry mom, treats children with respect and care. Always asks how the family is doing. Very thorough, knowledgeable and resourceful Wonderful!
I think she is a very patient concerned doctor with experience and children. She took good care of my grandson and took care of his problem.
She was very professional and explain with details treatment to follow.
Dr. Una was great and very informative. She set goals that my daughter could reach. Dr. Una has a wonderful energy about her. We have a new baby do in February and she will be his doctor as well.
She was wonderful, I was in the back right away, and she actually acted like she cared about my daughter. Gave me all kinds of advice concerning her personal needs.
I absolutely LOVE Dr. Una, she is the best pediatrician you'll ever find! She takes the time to get to know you and your kids and truly cares about children and she is so sweet. There's nobody I would trust more with my children's health than Dr. Una.
This was my first visit with doctor Unachukwu, and I was very dissatisfied. I think it was a waste of time and money to come to the office. If you knew that I wanted to have my child evaluated I think I should have been explained too how the process works. I don't think I needed to come in the office to later have paper work emailed to me this could have been done from the begining. Then when I have the forms completed we could have just went from there.
I thought she was great! Very thorough with excellent bedside manner.Very knowledgeable and her nurse was excellent as well!
overall shes great
Had a little problem with my insurance which is normal when I'm changing doctors. They worked with me and even though I past my appointment time, they still saw my daughter for her 12 month check-up. I just wished they had a small play area in the waiting room. Over all the nurses were nice and friendly. The doctor answered all my questions and I left my doctors appointment fully satisfied. Just that one little note "play area".
Dr. Una is amazing. I have two sons who go to her practice and the whole staff is wonderful towards them. They are down to earth and very knowledgeable. Dr. Una makes me laugh and feel comfortable at every visit. Would recommend her to ANYONE looking for a great pediatrician!!!
We have just started seeing Dr. Una and she is helping us to navigate a fairly intense journey as parents.
She was great with my children. she took her time explaining the process and also spoke to them about the importance of school. Love thiis doctor.
We were an hour early for my daughter's appt and the lady at the desk made sure we didnt have to wait. The doctor was very nice and made my emotional five year feel at easy. We will be switching to this office for all of her appts.
She was very understanding and helpful. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great pediatrician.
