Best Doctor Ever!!

A year ago I suffered an aneurysm and was sent from Saddleback Hospital in San Clemente to Saddleback Hospital in Laguna Hills. Dr. Nwagwu perform emergency surgery on me immediately that day. After surgery he came and spoke with my family , and later he came a visited me late that evening and shared what went wrong with me. To make a long story short, over the next 10 days in the hospital he came checked on me and talked with me each and everyday (including spending over an hour with me on Super Bowl Sunday). His bedside manner was incredible and he truly cared about my well being. I am lucky and I came out of this situation with no long term issues, and I truly believe I overcame my illness, due to Dr. Nwagwu ability to share with me what was going on with me and his amazing skills as a surgeon. If you ever need a neurosurgeon, he is the Doctor you want!!!
