None was memorable.
I thought Dr. Kwaw was very knowledgable, seemed very caring and professional. He took lots of time to go over some issues that have bothered me for a long time. I really liked him overall and was very impressed. I have two friends who also are using this doctor now as our other doctor has retired. We were all very worried because we really liked our other doctor and had been with him for many, many years. They, too, really liked this doctor and felt exactly as I did. We were very relieved to meet him and felt very good about him.
He took over my doctors practice when he retired. Dr. Kwaw had told me he'd refill my meds on a certain day then denied the meds leaving me w/o medications and no doctor. He worked in a hospital and not as private practice so visits have to be filed as specialist until he can get a PCP number and insurance approval. I have been told by others that he losing patients that had been w/the retired doctor for years; he is not liked and it is unprofessional to lie to a patient and leave one hanging as he did me. He had also misdiagnosed me on a Tues. and I ended up at a minor emergency clinic on that Friday. I was told by this doctor the prescption given wasn't strong enough for what was wrong w/me and the dosage was not what they prescribed anyway. I ended up w/new anti-biotics and an inhaler along as well as costly Dr. visits and meds. My husband saw him and was not happy with him either as he did not address the problem my husband had at the moment. I do not recommend this doctor.
