Dr. Amaechi was the first physician to actually respond to my health concerns. I had spoken to my PCP for months about it and was literally told not to worry about it that it would take care of itself over time. He also said it may take over a year for the issue to resolve itself. The first visit with Dr. Amaechi she took swift action and has been a true blessing to me! I adore her so much! The one thing my PCP did correctly- in my opinion-was to send me to Dr. Amaechi. Although, I was sent to her for anemia and not the two lumps I was initially concerned about.

She is a very qualified , knowledgeable oncologist and takes as much time with patients as they need for her to thoroughly answer all questions about treatment plans, risk factors, possible outcomes, etc. I would recommend her to a friend or family member without reservation.

The facility was clean comfortable and the staff were friendly and compassionate. My nurse was very understanding knowledgeable and kind. The doctor was super duper wonderful listened well spoke clearly to me about my issue and we had a great encounter. It did take a little bit longer than I thought to check out because the checkout desk was answering the phone calls as well as trying to check out people I think there was too much going on but as far as that that's the small stuff that that's really just small stuff So I appreciate everything.

First time I met Doctor Amaechi I was in for anemia treatment. While doing Interview I was asked questions which to one I mentioned my shoulder hurt. Dr Amaechi Immediately come to me and checked. Upon finding a knot she called and had me go directly for a scan that day. Biopsy was cancerous and treatment was begun in days. I feel Dr Amaechi attention and action on my visit for a totally separate matter stopped my unknown cancer from becoming bigger and life threatening . My treatments under Dr Amaechi the past year have been mostly unstressful due to Dr Amaechi putting at ease and explaining each step
