Dr Acholonu has been my doctor for 30 years. At 59 years old I still proudly call him MY doctor. He has cared for myself with child birth and my children delivering my grandchildren. We are always treated with the up most respect and care possible. No matter the challenge I know without a doubt my daughters and myself are in the best of care.

RUN as FAR as you can!

I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone. There was another doctor that worked in the office with him that I initially started seeing at the age of 15 that doctor told me I was just young and told me my body would get normal, she gave me birth control pills after a year and a half I stopped taking the birth control pills hoping I would have a normal cycle. That doctor ended up leaving and I decided to see Dr Acholonu. He ordered lab work that I went and had done, when I went for my follow up appointment some kind of way my lab results hadn't come in and he accused me of lying about getting the work done. He looked at my old lab results and told me I probably had Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and he said it was my fault because I was overweight. (I'm 5 ft 6 133 lbs..definitely not overweight) I told him I wasn't and he said "well women with PCOS are usually overweight." I said "maybe most..but not me.." and he said "your BMI is probably to much that's common" so he checked the BMI chart (even though it doesn't take a medical degree to tell im not overweight) and then he said "oh..well ur BMI is not over" I said "I already knew that..now wheres my apology?" he didn't want to apologize and I had pretty much lost faith in him..it seemed he was giving me a "cookie cutter" diagnosis..just because losing weight for most women helps with PCOS..that wouldn't help me..because I'm not overweight..but he wanted me to fit the mold...I'll give u all a rundown of what was going on with me..when I was 12 my period started..at 13 it stopped for 13 months..when it came back on there was one point where I bled for 35 days and they had to give me medicine to stop it..I was also in severe pain..I ASKED if I had PCOS or endometriosis at the age of 15 (I did a lot of research on my own) I was told I was just young...so at 17 with Dr. Acholonu he told me if I was having pain I might need to get a HYSTERECTOMY...youre telling this to a 17 year old? He didn't really say what he thought was wrong..I ended up leaving his office..now I'm 21 and what dr Acholonu never diagnosed another dr diagnosed at my first meeting with him..they suspect I have endometriosis and I'll have surgery in a couple of weeks to correct the problem. There are times I can't work because I'm in so much pelvin pain. I wish this situation would've been addressed when I was younger but Dr. Acholonu and his associate wouldn't listen to me and what was going.

PPatientatient for 12 years

Dr Acholonu is a very knowledgable and caring physician. The only thing that I am hurt about is that I was almost 40 and divorced and on the depo vera shot and Dr Acholonu suggested that I get off birth control and get my tubes clamped due to the hormones messing up my bone structure. Well I am now getting married again and my fiancee would like me to have a child, but I can't because my insurance does not cover it and I cannot afford the money to pay for it cash. So unless he can reverse it pro bono, I am stuck and will not be able to have a child with my future husband.
