She was very polite and her smile makes you feel at home. Her personality has a calming effect on a patient. I would recommend her to my friends and relatives.

She was not considerate of my needs as a patient but focused more on how I didn't need certain preventive measures. Very unprofessional.

I had no idea what to expect since this was my first time using my HMO insurance, but I was very happy. I went in for a physical but also complaining of anxiety. I felt like I was listened to and not rushed at all. She does have medical students do some of the intake but I saw her review it all and she followed up on several things I told the medical student (who was also very nice). The office seems to be well-run: the nurses, front-desk person, etc did not seem miserable and were courteous. She said hello to the patients she recognized from a previous visit and generally I got a good vibe from her. No complaints at all.

I went in for consultation on a few things and only received feedback on one. Felt like my listed anxiety disorder made me not be taken seriously. Felt like my symptoms were denied as being really. She also took a phone call in the middle of our session. Very unhelpful.

The doctor was very kind and it was a short visit. Her nurse practitioner was amazing - spent about 45 minutes with me getting history, offering advice. I really felt cared for.

I only saw Dr. Idowu at the end of the appointment when the resident doctor reviewed everything that was discussed. Even in that brief time, Dr. Idowu seemed intelligent, respectful, and professional. I would have loved to actually be seen by her instead of the resident who spent the majority of our visit trying to tell me how harmful the natural herbs were that I was using (before she had to look on WebMD to find out what it was and that the side effects were minimal). Her concern wasn't so much that the herbs had harmful side effects, rather that it was highly untested and unregulated by the medical community. Then without having fully collected by background information and not having done a physical exam yet, she commenced to tell me what she thought I probably had and what I would likely be prescribed. When I challenged her to tell me about all of the potential side effects and dangers of the potential prescription -we weren't even sure I needed yet- she basically said we would cross that bridge when we got to it. Also, she insisted on inaccurately categorizing something in my history that I informed her of (after referring to WebMD again of course) because she was passing judgment on my character. I found this to be judgemental and extremely unprofessional.

Everyone in the office was very friendly. They were a bit behind because they had 4 emergency patients so I waited almost an hour to be seen. Once I was seen, everything was fine and I got the prescription I needed.

It was a little longer than expected, but the interaction with the nurse and doctor was just fine. I guess they were having some issues with the Zocdoc site not removing cancellations from their systems. I'd go back though.

Was not happy with my last visit. I needed to see a specialist for three months and the lack of professionalism in the office led me to find my own doctor. I still have not heard from the office in reference to finding me a specialist. Appointment date 5-17-16

This doctor is simply great. She takes time to listen to your issues and takes times to answer your question. Above all she is very compassionate and concerned which you do not find in doctors these days. She is highly recommended.
