Personable, empathetic, answers all of my questions and explains in a way I clearly understand. Specializes in addiction and recovery. He was recommended to me back in 2004 since I suffered from panic attacks as well as mild to moderate depression. This doctor is very knowledgeable and helped me.

Maybe he has been in practice too long but he just doesn't seem to care or is just oblivious...

Stay away. Patients are people with rights and needs, doctors should help and are service providers, This office does not understand this basic concept. Dr. Mgbako is unreachable "too busy", he does not provide help, he does not offer medication advice, he is a stone wall. His staff consisting of a young angry girl yells, demeans and argues. I have never experienced such a cold, uncomfortable, terrible doctor experience.

Honestly the worst doctor experience in my entire life. His office is dirty, his staff and himself are downright nasty. He should have to go back to school because he has absolutely no idea what he's doing.

Dr. Ambrose Mgbako, instead of talking and assisting with coping skills, immediately prescribed medication. The prescribed medication was contra-indicated for people with elevated glucose levels and labeled "dangerous" for people with diabetes -- it did not matter to him -- he tried to bully my son into taking the medication when my son resisted claiming he should not believe the labels or the information provided by the drug company because they were only protecting themselves against lawsuits. A few months ago he prescribed high doses of abilfy without checking my son's bloodsugar -- 2 weeks later my son was admitted to the ICU with extreme diabetic ketoacidosis and blood sugar levels of over 1200 (twelve HUNDRED). Dr. Mgbako never bothered to check his blood sugar before prescribing abilify; yet tests showed that my son's blood sugar was extremely high for at least the previous 90 days.

Dr. Mgbako's main objective is seeing as many patients in as few minutes. Prescriptions, not therapy.
