Verified Patient Reviews
She is very good at discussing my health issues, and encouraging me to lead a more healthy lifestyle.
I want to start off by saying I fear doctors so much. Especially blood tests. The nurses and staff were so friendly and warm that I felt comfortable. The doctor asked questions a lot of doctors ignore and also let me take the lead on my treatment plan, giving many options and clarifying when I had questions. This was the best doctor visit I have ever had and I will definitely go back for care there. Also, the blood test was quick and painless and the nurse who did it made sure I was comfortable and occupied. Wonderful all around!
Dr. Idowu is a compassionate and caring doctor who I've seen for years. Her office staff is excellent.
An outstanding doctor with heart of gold.
I'm sure she is very knowledgeable but I came there specifically to get a tetanus shot. I did not appreciate the 1 hour and 45 minute wait. Once I was in the room she had informed me that they couldn't actually administer the shot. I had set the appointment 2 weeks prior specifically telling them I needed a tetanus shot. She then wrote me a prescription and I had to go to Walgreens and wait another 40 minutes before I could actually get the shot. Simply, I spent a total of 3 hours and 30 minutes to get a shot which I feel is way too long of a wait.
Dr. Idowu is a good doctor who really care's about her patients.
I love her as my doctor, she does a great job very gracefully.
I love my doctor. She explains everything very well, and I never leave the office unsure about the status of my health, diagnosis and treatment. As well the support staff there are always friendly, warm and I feel like I have a personal connection with them.
not personable at all, not only did i wait over an hour until i was about to reschedule but for my first time there the doctor was not personable or welcoming at all. Never acknowledged my long wait, and didn't really ask many questions about past or anything, just zoomed through the basics and that was it, I had some questions I was looking forward to bringing up during my appointment but my experience was so bad I wasn't even comfortable enough to remember those questions, I was just happy to be out of there.
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.
Love her and her staff
Dr. O, Is a very kind and patient Doctor. She has excellent bedside manner and is Professional in every sense. Her office team is as professional and friendly as well.
very professional and knowledgable!
It was a good experience visiting Dr. Olumuyiwa Idowu. The Patient Care and Doctor attended to my health concerns and needs promptly ASAP.
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 didn't feel that it was sufficient. I was prescribed a medication that was not helpful at all. I haven't returned since.
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.
Very kind and professional
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.
She was everything that I had hoped. My wait time was due to a lot of new patients.
I got in an out today less than and hour very please with service.
Dr Idowu and staff are good as olways. My family and I love going there. I needed to wait 30 mins after my appointment time but I am okay with that since Dr Idowu takes all the needed time for her patients.
Dr Ido bedside manner was terrible! She did not introduce herself. She was not friendly at all. Her staff was more friendly. She her a question on the portal and she never responded back. I would not recommend her to any of my family or friends!
Personal and understanding bedside manner.
It was good

That was the best Dr. Visit I have ever had in my life. The wait time wasn't long and the staff was very welcoming.
The visit was wonderful. Very courteous, highly professional and very respectful.
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.
The important thing is she always listens
She was very thorough, she is a doctor who appeared genuinely concerned with my health and overall well being
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
Always a pleasure. Staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Idowu cares about her patients and takes time to get to know them.
She was very professional and welcoming, encouraging easy communication. Very attentive and detailed. Awesome experience
It was great. The doctor is very polite and very helpful as well.
My visit was awesome and brief.
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.
Dr. Idowu is always pleasant and helpful. It is always a good experience when I have to visit with her.
So far, this has been the best experience I have ever had. Dr. Idowu is kind, courteous , very thorough,and knowledgeable. The staff is professional, kind and courteous as well.
Dr. Idowu is great! She gave clear answers and listened to all my questions. I never felt rushed or like I was speaking out of turn. I had a great experience here.
She is one awesome doctor
I was displeased with the service I received. I do not feel that it was a thorough evaluation and I am in the process of looking for another physician.
I am very happy with this doctor. She is aware not only of your physical problems but what is happening within your family that can effect your health. That is very important
She is terrific! She patiently listened to all of my concerns and addressed each one without ever making me feel rushed. She genuinely cares about her patients.
An excellent doctor who treat you holistically.
I love all my visits with her
The staff and the doctor were very nice and professional.
She is awesome!
Best doctor visit ever. The staff was so nice and supportive, too.
Great doctor and great experience.
My visits are always excellent. The atmosphere is great. The staff is always professional. I'm usually in and out.
She is very understanding and takes the time to explain treatment and medication. She has helped me with my health issue and I feel she is a wonderful doctor.
Dr. Idowu was great -- but I happened to be there a day when a student doctor was given my case, and I would have rather had her full attention instead. When she did come in, she accurately diagnosed me (with some recorrection of the student doctor), but otherwise my experience was great.
She's an extremely thorough, very good doctor who really cares about your well being. I'm grateful to have Dr. Idowu as my primary care physician!
Informative and helpful
I had a very unique experience with Dr.Idowu. After some personal difficulties I realized I would not be able to see the doctor during my scheduled appointment time and was having an emotional reaction. She, however, was very patient with me and helped me figure out the care that I needed, she didn't leave until I was taken care of and went the extra mile to make sure I was ok. I am so grateful to Dr.Idowu, she has a great heart and a kind energy. I would recommend her to everyone.
A thorough breed professional, whose main aim is to ensure customers' satisfaction.
I have had the pleasure of being the patient of Dr. Idowu's for many years & she's always been very insightful, positive & helpful. She's personable but professional, she's a very caring & compasionate doctor that I respect & appreciate.
The doctor was very nice and made recommendations for me. She addressed my concerns.
Awesome! Loved it
She is very passionate about her job.i would use her and recommend her anytime.
Very attentive to details.
Highly professional, the staffs included.

Great visit. I accidentally came a week early and she and her staff managed to work me into her busy schedule. She listened to my list of problems and took them seriously. All of the staff was also very friendly.
Dr. Idowu was very helpful and was able to make helpful suggestions and referral for issues I presented to her.

She knows her stuff. She was on point and after the consultation with her, my worries and anxieties disappered
I really like her. Thank you for helping me find her
I was very comfortable,and the doctor was very knowledgeable addressing my concern.
Dr Idowu is very professional. She actually helped a patient carry her jacket because she felt it was too heavy for the patient to carry. That is being kind. She is thorough, gentle and always gets back to you for a follow up. I highly recommend her.
FIrst visit. Great "bed side" manner. All staff very personable.
She is so dedicated and positive. The best doctor I had
I can tell Dr. Idowu really cares about her patients. She takes time for each patient and I never felt rushed. I have aleady recommended her to others.
Even though i sent a message prior to the visit if my insurance was accepted, I showed up, waited an hour to learn then, that it wasn't accepted.
He is very patient and kind. he makes me feel comfortable when i explain my situsation. In the end of my appointment, he explain to me how can i avoid the dizziness that happens with me and the ways of how can i be better. Thank you.
My visit with Dr. Olumuyiwa was quiet pleasant. she told how I can treat my Congestive heart faiiure. with the right prescribe medicine, under her care I'm doing quiet well.
I like going to see Dr. Idowu. She communicates well about my health. I am more confident knowing what I need to do to help maintain my well-being.

She is an excellent doctor. Takes time with her patients.
I like the doctor. It was my first time there. She was very thorough in assesing my medical needs.
I Love Dr. Idowu, she is my Favorite Doctor and she takes good care of me, her and her staff
very supportive, and courageous, cannot over estimate her professionalism manners.
Dr. Idowu is great!
I never have to wait more than five mins to be seen at this office. Dr and staff are all very kind and knowledgeable. I feel very comfortable coming here and continue to do so despite it being further from my new home.
I have been going to Dr Idowu for over 5 years now and she is terrific! She never rushes you, clearly listens to you and is great at following up too! I highly recommend her!
Dr. Idowu is great. She is our family doctor. This includes my husband and three children. She actually sits down and has conversations with her patients. A caring doctor with a wonderful bedside manner. Great with small children also. She is my mother's doctor as well. I would recommend Dr. Idowu to anyone.
She was extremely professional , and at the same time fun to be around,
Dr Idowu was very helpful, and answered all my questions. Dr Idowu was very patient as well. I will be keeping her as my primary Doctor.
Very warming and staff very friendly and helpful , supplies me with helpful information and made me feel like she was concerned about my health and what was conceding me. I look forward to establishing a healthy relationship she for years to come
she is caring,good listener,always exhibit exellent professionalism manner
this Doctor and her staff are so worth the wait I'm happy Thank You Doc Zoc
It really was awesome every one was really kind
I always have peace of mind any time I visit the office. Dr Idowu is always patient to listen to your complaints and very empathetic towards you. She is never in a hurry to see your back. Keep up the good work. To the front desk ladies I say continue the good work.
She was Great with my kids!! She took her time to examine them. She was very concern about school and grades. I will definitely continue care with her for my self as well as my children.
Consultation could be a little faster for straight forward cases...but it's also a teaching clinic so you're essentially practice for medical students.
This Doctor is very kind and she made feel veru comfortable her and her staff.
She is very professional, pleasant and her crew were very knowledgeable and they made me feel at home with all my personal medical history I shared with them, I believe I wasn't judged. I will be making her my primary physician. The environment is clean and sophisticated, I indeed received quality service today. She offered me pap smear and mammograms which I turned down but will be reconsidering in the next few weeks... Thanks to you Dorki...
At this time the meeting qith the doctor waa fine waa very attentive and appears to undetstand pur conver and need. We have another visit next month.
I would not see this doctor ever again. I went to her numerous times complaining of severe pain in the side of my abdomen and she simply prescribed pain killers. She never did anything more to find out what was wrong with me and when talking to a resident he was able to identify the cause within minutes. She was not attentive and did not genuinely care about my treatment or diagnosis.
Yes I would see her again. Because she very concerned about me as a person and my health. I like how she speak the truth about my health. After my visit with Dr. O. Idowu, she motivated me to loose weight and walk every day. She is excellent doctor!
My three children ages 15, 14 and 7 are patients of Dr. Idowu. I scheduled three school physicals at once. The great thing about being able to balance my day is by not separating appointments between siblings like some physicians do. Every single one of our questions were answered and our physician prescribes life advice which in my opinion is better than medicine. I am grateful we found a great doctor who truly cares about the career she chose because it is obvious. If you are looking for professional, compassionate, punctual and efficient care, please consider Dr. Idowu as you Family Doctor. Hours are great, wait times are minimal and location is ideal!
My visit was perfect. Dr. Olumuyiwa Idowu was patience and accommodative.
She is a nice pleasant woman she acts like a mother...............
She is a true professional. I have never had a doctor call me to discuss the results of my tests but she did! She is an awesome doctor and I highly recommend her.
awful. She sucks
One of the best.
Dr. Idowu was professional and courteous.
Even though I waited long, it was due to a mistake in scheduling for the day. The nurse did inform me before my arrival that I would have to wait due to the mistake. However, I chose to take that option vs coming again another day.
I was really impressed with her auto request for a second appointment to review my blood work with me. I'm 41 years old and no doctor has ever taken the time with an exclusive appointment to ensure I understood where I currently an as it relates to my blood levels. My first visit was an annual physical. It was painless and quick. Her calm demeanor was reassuring.
Dr. Idowu does a thorough job each time I visit her. I love this doctor, she is kind and very caring!!!!
it was all good very pleasant and didnt have to wait.
It was fine. The doctor was very kind and asked very targeted questions. She ultimately didn't tell me anything I hadn't already been able to find on Google, but she was very calm and comforting, which was helpful.
Dr. Idowu was really nice and professional. She took the time to listen and review everything. The construction going on in the building was a distraction, if not annoying. So I wish her office was in a different location.
She was great- very thorough and she takes her time and is very kind! The whole staff is very nice and professional and helpful!
Unfortunately I found she was not comfortable prescribing my anti-anxiety medication on a regular basis (which I have never had an issue with with any other primary care doctor and I have moved around very frequently) and so I have to find yet another doctor and pay yet another (expensive) bill (and since I am self-pay and recently unemployed this is extremely difficult for me financially - speaking of anxiety!) but she was kind and attentive, and she did give me a month's supply of that particular medication. It was a little frustrating as I have been on this same medication and dosage for over 13 years. I also offered to get her my doctor's information to contact them, but she declined. Since she gave me three months of my other medications it would have been really (REALLY) nice to not have to worry about paying this other looming bill in just a month. But I grudgingly understood, and again she was very kind and attentive which there is much to be said for. I will be seeing her again - which says a lot as well.
She has the nicest beside manner! She was very attentive, took a bunch of tests and assured me all along the process, plus she told me I looked 32, gotta love that, I am 52 :)
I would recommend anyone going to Dr. Olumuyiwa.
