Dr. Douoguih 's credentials speak for themselves, but his professional manner, attention to patient concerns, and compassion are exemplary as well. I still need to have my surgery, but so far.....I'm very impressed with the whole team!

The wait time is outrageous. By the time I finally saw the doctor 2 hours had gone by and x rays had been taken, without the doctor seeing me. Then he came talked to me and in 5 minutes he was done, never looking at the x-rays. The question would be: why X-rays by default?

There was a small miscommunication with the front desk staff that caused an extended wait time. However, everyone is professional helpful, and genuinely cares. Dr. Douoguih explained my injury, provided care options, and answered all of my questions! P.S. Thank you Linda and Carla for taking the time and assisting with my referral issue today.

Beautiful office (very busy). Was called back at my appointment time. Had X-rays taken in the office and then seen by the fellow and then the head MD within a very reasonable amount of time.

The entire visit was well run and showed they cared about my issue and time. I arrived early and was actually admitted early. Between the various steps (initial info, x-ray, initial consult, final consult), there were no more than a couple minutes. Very well run and feel like I received excellent care.

Wait Time

I would strongly recommend against going to Dr. Douoguih. For my first appointment, I waited for more than an hour and a half after my appointment time. When it was finally time to see the doctor, it was incredibly rushed and my description of my own injury was disregarded until I repeated myself multiple times-- even then, I don't really feel like he was listening and I was the doctor for less than 15 minutes. For my follow up appointment, I got a call from his office cancelling on me around 4 hours before my appointment. I had scheduled the follow up more than 3 weeks beforehand. When trying to reschedule, the soonest appointment was more than 2 weeks out and at a time that doesn't work for my schedule. I think this was totally unprofessional, inconsiderate, and is wasting my time-- especially with an injury that is time sensitive.

Once you get into the exam room the staff work efficiently to get all your information (symptoms, meds, vital signs) in prep for the MD to see you. This prep is very helpful to get the ball rolling while you wait.

I waited for almost an hour and a half before even talking to the nurse and after I had been there for over two hours the doc finally came in and probably spent fewer than five minutes with me. He gave me a diagnosis in one minute without asking almost any questions and didn't give me any information on what my recovery would look like and if/when I should make another appointment. I will not be going back.

What a wonderful doctor! Everyone in that office is very kind and reassuring. Dr. Douoguih explained everything thoroughly and validated my concerns. I have been dealing with this knee issue for over a year and my past surgeon was very dismissive. I highly recommend this team.

Dr. Douoguih is wonderful- I've had a couple surgeries with him and he's always really kind, professional, and honest about what he's doing and why and lets me make my own decisions about what to do for treatment. He is an outstanding surgeon, his office staff is great and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Wiemi Douoguih MD is very professional, polite but also has a relaxed attitude that really relief any stress. He gives time and answer all questions in a clear manner. I had a minor surgery to be performed and he did it in the same session so I didn't have to do another appointment. Everything went perfect.I highly recommend him.
