by Jennifer Hall on Sep 26th, 2014

The first thing i notice is how clean her office was. while speaking with her i love that she took her time to explain to me about my thyroid. She went into great detail about my thyriod and she also pop quiz me to make sure that i understood about my thyriod. Now i understand my disease better and i am able to explain to someone else about what thyroid disease is and how it effect you. I have never had a Doctor to pop quiz me nor explain like she did, she also had pictures to show. I love this doctor.

I was sent to Dr Obialo for my thyroid. Turned out to be cancer. Although the wait times are long, Dr Obialo spends the time necessary with each patient to ensure questions/concerns are answered. Dr Obialo was quick to get my medications right/scheduled surgery quickly and I got my results quickly. I went to another specialist when I lost my insurance and it took him forever to get my levels right. They are still not right. I am back with Dr Obialo and would definatley recommend her. Yes, wait time is no long but she is worth it... She saved my life

Worst doctor. Even worse bedside manner. Save yourself the time and money and go elsewhere.

Dec 16th, 2013

Our son was recently diagnosed with Type One diabetes, and spent two days at the hospital. Part of this stay was in ICU to to eleverated sugar level. We had the misfortune of scheduling an appointment for our son. The appointment was set up and it took more than 1 1/2 hours before we were taken to a very small room. Before going to the room, we asked the staff if it was ok for my wife as well as my self were presents and the answer was "yes". We spent another 45 minutes before an inexperience assistance took our son's blood pressure. The assistance was not certain on how to accurately place the manual blood pressure monitor. When Dr.Obialo made to the room her first comment was "I cannot have all of you in this room and one of you has to wait up front". Her tone of voice was not pleasant and did not introduce herself prior to expressing her concerns on the number of people in the room. My wife left the room and was extremely upset. I remained with my son, and expressed the my bad experience displeasure. At that time she indicated the way the meeting went will not be a good patnership between Dr and patient. I informed her of my concerns regarding my son and the need for insulin. She gave us two sample pens until able to schedule with another Endocrinologist. Although she was concerned enough to give us the insulin for our sons, she failed to recognize that the bad partnership was created by her and her team.

I scheduled an appointment using an online system called ZOCDOC. I have used this system successfully several times to schedule appointments with doctors who take their practice seriously and have professional staff who care about the patients. My appointment was at 1:15 (I am located about an hour away from the office). At 12:30 (as I am in route to the office) I get a call to tell me that they won't be able to see me at 1:15 today because they only see new patients on Monday and Saturday (It's Monday). The office staff was rude, as if I had inconvenienced them. I partially blame myself because no other endocrinologist in the area had opening anytime before thanksgiving, and her ratings on ZocDoc were low. I like to support African-American doctors because I am African next appointment will be with a Caucasian or Asian. Call it what you want. Perhaps the doctor is a great doctor, I wouldn't know, I didn't get the chance to meet her...but that office staff needs to go. Hire some professional white people to run the front end.

First, the fact that she is an internist counts a whole lot. I believe that means she is in Internal Medicine, and they know a whole lot more. I was surprised she didn't rush me at all. (I always think I had better not ask any questions because they are in a hurry). I asked her to please stay, and not leave this particular clinic and she smiled and said "I will stay, because I love my work."

Dr Obialor is the best endocrinologist I know.Took my mother to her and was so impressed on her professionalism.My mother's diabetes was out of control before I met Dr Obialor and thanks to Dr Obilaor, my mother's diabetes is well managed now. I will recommend Dr Obialor anytime to anyone

Twice we waited for over 1 1/2 - 2 hours to see a very disorganized PA for 10 minutes (billed for 45 minutes). Dr. Obialo MAY be excellent but her office is left in the hands of those terribly disorganized and rushed to get to the next patient.

by Shaun on Mar 9th, 2013

I had a thyroid scan done a couple months ago and it took over a month for her office to get back to me even though they told me that I needed the scan done immediately. Seems like they have no sense of urgency and professionalism. Awful experience and would not recommend anyone to her!

Dr. Obialo is a very pleasant Doctor and so is her nursing/reception staff. Some nursing staff members don't seem to fully know what they are doing half of the time (except Jennifer, I love her!) but they are polite. My concern is that she focuses more on patients with Diabetes and not so much on Thyroid patients. From the TV in the lobby to the pamphlets, to the posters in the exam rooms, they are all geared towards Diabetics. She is very "chart" oriented and NOT at all symptom oriented. I knew I went from Hyperthyroid to Hypothyroid before she did because my symptoms drastically changed before my "TSH levels" did! I visit a couple other Dr's because she refuses to treat my crazy SYMPTOMS and the other Dr's say "Oh this is Thyroid related" or "your thyroid Dr doesnt treat you for this?". Uh, NO! Only for the disorder itself; gotta get that TSH down...that's the only focus. I honestly wouldn't mind waiting the 1, 2, sometimes 3 hours that I've waited in the lobby to be seen if she could treat my complete Thyroid disorder including symptoms instead of just looking at those stupid numbers.

Do NOT go see Dr Obialo. She hires cheap worthless labor except for Jennifer. Office stinks and will wreak havoc on your allergies if you have any. Has enormous god complex and is extremely self centered. Wait time sucks - clear you whole calendar because you will be there well over an hour before she decides to grace you with her presence even if you are the only person in the office.

by unhappy patient on Oct 14th, 2010

I can't trust a doctor who gets the symptoms of Hyper and Hypothyroidism backwards. It just showed me that she doesnt know what she is talking about. And then when I chose to go to another doctor they wanted to charge me a minimum of $25 to get a copy of my own medical records. Whats with that? Its a couple of prints that would cost $0.10 a piece at Kinkos. Give me a break.
