It was great to meet Dr. Chukwumah. Very impressed with how he explained my complex hernia issue with honesty, yet caring approach. So glad I went - wonderful doctor! His medical assistant, Ashley was great as well!

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Chukwumah is a true professional, and I think the same about his entire team. He took the time to explain the procedure and addressed all of my questions and concerns. The process is clearly explained and I was given a booklet detailing everything as it would happen, as well as what was expected from me. Now, a bit over one month after the procedure, I can definitively say that all the information Dr. Chukwumah provided was on point and helped make the process go smoothly. Moreover, he is a good guy with a positive attitude. Thank you Dr. Chukwumah; I am grateful to you and your team.
