Professional Statement

Dr. Akinboboye, a graduate of Medicine from the University of Ibadan, is a prominent US medical practitioner, an award-winning nuclear cardiologist, and is listed among the top doctors in the New York region by leading US medical publications. He is an associate professor of clinical medicine at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University. He is also the national President of the Association of Black Cardiologists in the USA. He also serves on the International Board of Governors of the American College of Cardiology.

Born in Nigeria, Dr. Akinboboye was drawn to medicine at an early age. His father wanted to become a physician but could not because of financial reasons. His uncle trained in the United Kingdom on a scholarship, became an obstetrician and practiced in Britain and Nigeria for many years. Dr. Akinboboye prides himself on his empathy for the challenges that patients face, which he attributes to some of medical hardships he had in his childhood.

Dr. Akinboboye keeps abreast of the latest techniques and best practices in cardiac care and nuclear diagnosis. He serves on a panel that has been evaluating new studies on the use of stem cells to regenerate tissue. His hope is that that research will lead to a treatment that could replenish damaged areas of the heart.

I like the office. It is spacious, clean and well organized. Staff are friendly and professional. Although the wait time was long, I was fully satisfied when I finally saw the doctor. It is a very busy place, however I did not feel rushed in my encounter with the doctor. He is attentive and very knowledgeable.

I loved it. He is very attentive and very helpful. It makes you feel that he cares for you rather than putting a band aid on the illness.

The doctor was very nice and the staff was professional. All went well except for the unfortunate wait time. However, he is the only doctor there. I appreciate that he is serving this community--we need more people like him in it. He could probably work in Manhattan if he wanted to, considering his credentials, but he must have chosen to be here, and I totally appreciate that. Just wish the wait wasn't so long!

First of all, despite scheduling with Dr. Ola, I ended up with another doctor. Secondly, beware of this offices practices. After paying a co-payment for a regular preventative checkup, they scheduled me for a few other tests in conjunction with the checkup. Nothing out of the ordinary, I've done it before but all in one day at other offices. Now, each time I go back to get a test done, they want to charge me another co-payment. What sense does it make to schedule one checkup with the ONE co-payment, only be be scheduled for three other common tests, each with their own co-payment. Be sure to call ahead before you go to ask about the costs before they try to nickel and dime you.

Dr. Akinboboye was excellent. After asking how I heard about him, he said "Welcome to the practice". This is something I have never had any doctor say to me and it meant a lot. Judging from the degrees and accoclades that outline his office, he is a brilliant man with his finger on the pulse of the medical community. The only shortcoming I experienced was in his front office and when my blood pressure was taken. There was a woman in the front office who kept making remarks like 'if she calls, tell her I am not here' and told a patient 'don't act like you have somewhere to go'. I found this to be unprofessional. Additionally, the worker who did my EKG and took my blood pressure was playing on her cell phone while tending to me. Again, unprofessional and somewhat dismissive. With the exception of these two, all the others workers in the office were friendly and practiced professional etiquette. Thank you.

The entire staff was very kind and pleasant. The waiting room was big and roomy with lots of comfortable seats. Since there was several patients in front of me I was seen in 28 minutes after I handed in my first time visit medical history papers. Dr. Ola was very pleasant caring professional at his best. I really enjoy my first time visit to the clinic.

He was very informative seems to know my problem right away after giving a brief description of my previous health conditions test taken along with results . However did not have enough time to speak with him due to the time he reach me at the end of close of business day. So alot of things were in a rush at the same time he knew right away what test he needed to come back to perform & which doctor specialty needed to refer me to for my situation. Doctor was very attentive but the wait time front desk is very disorganized. Wait time was awful ; front desk don't ask enough or proper questions for a persons 1st time visit . I had to come out of the office in the middle of doing a procedure testing to fill out papers photo copy my insurance card for someone to ask why didn't I tell them it's my 1st time . Also fill out out papers they should've had done before being called for visit . Otherwise his medical staff is very nice but front desk is in their own little world .

The Very Best! I have interacted with numerous Practitioners in various fields of expertise, and I have yet to encounter a Team of professionals as adept in their roles as supporting staff as demonstrated by Dr. Akinboboye's. From the Medical Receptionists to the Office Manager, to the Phlebotimists, to Interns and Interns in training they all conduct business with adroit efficiency and care. They are honestly an "A" Team of medical professionals. Dr. Akinboboye is a thoughful and considerate professional who in the practice of listening, prescribing of tests and suggestions for remedies, keeps the office and it's patients moving in Swiss-like precision. His treatment is respectful and thorough. I am wholly convinced of Dr Akinboboye's skill and resolve to provide the very best assessment and treatment to all who visit. I am confident in stating, a finer team of medical professionals can scarsely be found in the New York Metropolitan area, hands down!
