only problem I had was with the on line form I filled out. it seemed endless, I actually felt dizzy completing it. was too many questions. my in person office visit was completely different. Fast & efficient, the one form I had to fill out was easy. On line form - horrible.

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.
Jan 6, 2021
very helpful and thorough friendly demeanor especially when you are there to find out about the result of a biopsy
Jan 6, 2021
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
Jan 6, 2021
clearly they hire great people and if the other doctors are as good as dr kachikwu then this is a winning office
Jan 6, 2021
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
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.

she is more than a doctor. words can't explain what a beautiful person she is. she is very connected to her patients. I would highly recommend her!
Oct 7, 2020
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!
