Very professional, the doctor was very attentive and took her time to explain her diagnosis. The staff was friendly. My wait wasn't that long and I'd recommend Dr. Mbanuzue.
It has been over 5 yrs since I visited a podiatrist, and perhaps podiatry procedures have a changed, , but I was a surprised when a soaking tub/whirlpool was not used prior to treating problem area.

My recent visit with Dr. Mbanuzue was excellent. I was able to get a same day appt even though I was worked in to get to see her. Very nice officer person and most of all the doctor was very kind and took time to explained what she was doing even though I was very nervous and was able to get my nerves to settle down, I did read the reviews before making the appt and glad I made the right choice after reading the many good reviews.
