I have to agree with the other reviews that the office staff was extremely friendly and Dr. Nwankwo's 3rd year med student was very eager to help. But she personally seemed ready to just get in and out when seeing me,instead of willing to treat the issues I've been having.

I love Dr. Nwankwo, she is professional and caring and very intelligent! She is honest and will tell you what you need to do in order to recover or *cough* quit smoking.

Staff was very friendly. Doctor was friendly, but she didn't seem like she wanted to be in the room for more than 5 minutes. Wouldn't want to waste her time with another appointment there. Disappointed, because I really wanted to finda primary physician near me that was great that I can keep.

My only issue is I booked an appointment that clearly states annual Pap smear. I was charged for an office visit and should’ve been and I don’t get my money back. That is horrible. I booked on this site that clearlystates annual Pap smear. Wow!!! I will go somewhere else. I appreciate the time given.

Everything was great until the phlebotomist accidentally blew a vein, and then did not know that was what had happened so she used the same vein again. There was blood everywhere both times and though she was worried I do notbelieve she let the doctor know. No one checked on me before sending me on my way. I was still bleeding and feeling very sick when I arrived home.

You do better going to a free public clinic! Never again!! It's very nasty in that office! I saw roaches, the room was dirty, the bathroom was dirty and they had urine sitting around the bathroom. Terrible!!
