so far that office has been the best in the way you have to talk - the portal, they are usually back same day or next - i was really hating that portal who wants to wait 3-4 days for an answer n then what about the other older patients who have no experience with this - were use to a Doctor

not only would I recommend her, I have done so with 4 friends who also had breast cancer and they all went to her. dr Kachikwu is a godsend. she's kind and courteous and takes time to explain things thoroughly in the way you understand and answers all questions. she's compassionate and caring and her smile is so contagious you always feel at ease being there. she's a true gift to the surgical/medical world

was in the exam room for a bit longer than usual and the PA or Nurse st piped in and let us know that the doctor was on a phone call with another physician and would be right in. so nice to receive that respect and courtesy
Jan 6, 2021
the front desk staff is soooooo nice and friendly and helpful. I made sure I told them how much I appreciate that about them. so many doctors offices have frowning rude negative Nancy employees at the front desk and make patients feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. not here. even on the phone they're nice and go out of their way to help you and follow up and call back. just wonderful.

Absolutely love Dr. Kachikwu! I have from my first appointment with her. I feel she explains options, takes my concerns seriously, very engaging, compassionate, and easy to work with. She also spoke with my husband later (after a procedure), and he mentioned she is one of the best care team members we've had in our journey. Explains things in a way we can understand, confident and comforting.

The most professional office and physician we have ever worked with.

Wonderful office staff and nurses, prompt, efficient and professional. Dr. Kachikwu is a very knowledgeable and fine surgeon. She was quick, caring and considerate. She explained all procedures and out comes in a manner that a non medical person could readily understand. She was always reachable when needed to answer post appointment question calls.

*Dr. R. is one of the most caring physician I've ever met. We had a very bad experience with my prior surgeon & were very scared. *Dr. K.'s compassion & professionalism made EVERY difference. She is truly an angel in disguise. What I appreciated about her too was that she tells it like it is. She doesn't sugarcoat anything & gives you the absolute best treatment options & care. She is encouraging & optimistic & I felt completely comfortable going into surgery with her. I would recommend her again & again!

I hate doctor visits, so it is hard for me to rate this on a scale like this. That being said everyone was professional and helpful.

This was my first surgery since I was a child and I have got to say that I have heard of people having nightmarishly times getting in contact with their physicians, they way they were treated and other issues. MINE was so very professional, easy and quite impressed with how everything and everyone was. From time of diagnosis to recovery every step of this process has been positive

Shawniie is the nurse I see most often and she is always interested in me, shares her own stories too. She cares and it's felt.

No negative comments. I believe given covid 19 the team is taking extra precautions to ensure patient safety. So a little extra time is needed.
