I WOULD RECOMMEND DR A TO EVERYONE

2.14 Aug 23, 2018
If the words, "You'll have to come back when it's happening again so we can see it" is good care, yeh ok. The "it" was a fair amount of green suppuration flowing from the surgical site 6 weeks post-op and more than 2 weeks post-Rx antibiotic. Unfortunately it occurred around 3 AM so it had stopped by noon. This is NOT something the ER should handle, BTW, it's chronic.

this was a follow up after unexpected surgery. most questions don't apply

Dr. Acholonu is so kind and friendly. He really makes you feel comfortable. He takes as much time with you as you need and never rushes you. He's great!

0.0 Jun 14, 2018

5.0 Jun 07, 2018
Dr. Acholonu took care of me. Very happy with Dr. A!

1.0 Apr 18, 2018
i didn't have concerns about his surgical skills but he was very cold toward me. spoke to me with as few words as possible. barely looked me in the eye. i felt more like a was ordering a cheeseburger from him instead of being evaluated for surgery.

5.0 Mar 29, 2018
dr acholonu is a great surgeon, i am very appreciative that he was able to fit me in for an unscheduled lap appy surgery. he is very knowledgeable and friendly

5.0 Feb 27, 2018
He is a wonderful doctor and makes it easy to ask questions or voice concerns.

3.43 Feb 15, 2018
I like Dr. Acholonu, and had an easy relationship with him. However, a major oncological issue was not discussed with me during the 10 days I was in the hospital, and I only found out at my follow up visit. I feel this was something important, and could have been handled better.
