Going to visit a doctor and his office for the first time is like a box of chocolates. You never know the reception of the staff and the visit. Patient's wait for an appointment to get the medical relief the seek.In the middle of patient and physician is the business of insurance. All considering Dr. Ugwonali gave me a professional mindset you seldom see in today's physician. He was kind to my wife and I. His staff was way above average professional. I knew my status and my physician's standpoint on how to correct my ailing shoulders. What blew my mind is he was patient in explaining what was happening with my shoulders from top to bottom. I was very pleased with my choice and his approach toward getting me to healthy. A BREATH OF FRESH AIR IN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION. I traveled from Huntsville Alabama praying I could find a physician who understood this pain can make you a monster. Dr. Ugwonali has put me on course to eliminate the pain monster. Thank you for asking my opinion.

I appreciated how Dr. Ugwonali listened to my symptoms and also to my history of related problems to come up with a sensible plan for next steps. I look forward to working with him to resolve my elbow problem using this multi-step plan.

Dr. Ugh inlaid was great and the cortisone shot was the most painless one I have received! However, my appt was at 9:45 and he didn't come into my examining room until 11:15. He was very apologetic and attributed it totheir patient portal software not working, which I believe but would've have preferred updates while waiting. I did really like him!
