The wait time can be lengthy, but, that's only because the DR is extremely thorough. He truly takes his time andaddresses any and all issues you may have. Outstanding patient care!!

My visited was horrible my sons appointment was at 10:30 he didn't see the doctor until 1:30pm we set there all that time. I will be changing my son to another physician next year. I don't think any one who paysa high premium as we all do should have to wait that long. Plus the doctor didn't even examine my son.

Great doctor once you are able to actually meet with him. The wait time is APPALLINGLY LONG!! I arrived @12:55 for a 2pm appointment and didn't get back until after 3 pm. Once in the exam room, I waited an add45 minutes to an hour. After speaking with several other patients in the waiting room, I was informed that this is the norm, and that whenever visiting this practitioner, you should be prepared to wait several hours.

I have to give them kudos for their bedside manners, but when it come to sending my prescription in with the pharmacy, it took them forever. Even after calling the clinic a couple of times, all I got was cold shouldersuntil I asked to speak with the Doctor on duty who finally said the prescription has been sent to Walgreen. I do hope this trend don't continue or i will be forced to look for a clinic that keep to their words.

The physician was wonderfuk and allowed me to give input in my treatment. As a young African American female with family history of HTN I know that managing my pre-hypertension is important. However I was taken back when the aid ornurse whom ever she was asked me if I was a hypercondriac.. I was floored at her questioning however its remarks/comments like these that make people less willingly to see about their health problems. As a healthcare professional for 12 years and a nursing student this is not right. Be mindful of the things said to your clients. If i didnt have confidence in the Physician I would have not made a follow-up appointment.

My visit was horrible! I drove nearly 45 minutes for my appointment only to be told that I would have to wait 3+ hours to be seen. The office was completely full and people were waiting outside. One might think thatalot of patients at a clinic is a good thing, but not when their appointments are not being honored. If I had 3 hours to spend waiting around I wouldn't have made an appointmenT- much less taken the time and gas to commute in order to do so. Never again.....NEVER AGAIN.

I was in the waiting room for two hours and another 40 min in the room. I think the doctor is overbooking patients. The staff ask a lot about my personal life not pertaining to why I'm at the doctors. Ithink it could be a great place but the wait time is ridiculous.

Itr was very enjoyable. I use to see other doctors that an appt. would be a all day. I was a new patient, filled out some paper work and then took back there to be seen. I was there maybe aboutone hour or so and was out to go home. I will continue to go to this doctor because he is through and don't take all day to see you.I am very, very pleased.

I appreciated the professional, yet cordial, atmosphere of Dr. Obiekwe and staff. Unlike some other waiting room experiences, there wasn't a long wait to receive service. When you left, you were thoroughly informed about your condition and the direction you should take.
