5 out of 5 stars

Actually used a visual (white board) to explain the different types of blood cells, white, red, platelets. He had answers for questions we had not even asked yet, but had planned to. He was very prepared. His explanations of this, plus his outline of the procedures to determine the possible reasons, addressed our concerns that this might be cancer. His communication skills are excellent. His assistant was very kind and skilled in her profession.

Staff members are very friendly and helpful, you feel right at home. I felt welcome from the Valet parking attendants all the way into the building. The secretaries respect your privacy and are very friendly. The aids are great, they get you ready by taking your temp, bp, ect., at the end they ask if yoy want something to eat or drink. Diane always laughs at me at each appointment because, I would ask if the chairs were already wiped. Her attitude is welcoming and her friendly spirit is a blessing it shows she loves her job and enjoy helping us out. The nurses are great very caring, they come around every few minutes to see if you are okay. I had an appointment on my Birthday and they surprise me with cupcakes, soda, snacks and singing. The nurses came singing happy birthday and clapping, this really made my day..thanks again, this was so amazing and thoughtful. The building is clean, and the atmosphere is relaxing. I will definitely recommend Dr. Olugbile.
