What Our Patients Say…

Don’t take our word about our exceptional customer service. We have a reputation that speaks for itself. As you can see, our patients report rave reviews about our practice.

I just finished my 4th appointment with Dr. Awosika today and another prescription drug has been reduced to halfthe daily amount! Also, within 3 months of following his diet and exercise directions my GFR went from 44 up to 60! I know of others who’ve had such success. He and his staff are very professional, friendly and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Awosika.

My back story is that I had a non-functional kidney for many years, which symptoms has been misdiagnosed as GI problems until I ended up in the ER with severe pain, and required emergent removal of that kidney. My experience with my previous Nephrologist was not the greatest, mostly because any time I would discuss my concerns about my kidney health, he simply said that I’m young and have nothing to worry about. A friend referred me to Dr. Awosika, and I have never been happier about her suggestion to see him. He always listens to my concerns, sends me for testing related to those concerns, and looks at my test results before saying everything is ok. He considers lifestyle changes before suggesting medication, if appropriate. I truly appreciate his dedication to patient care and would recommend him to any of my friends and family.

I met Dr. Awosika about 4 years ago when I was a patient at Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Florida. At the request of my doctor, I followed up with a visit to his office. He provided me with detailed information regarding the issues with my kidneys and set a goal for me to achieve. Over the years my kidney functions have greatly improved due to the diet, medication and instructions he provided. I have encountered nothing but professionalism from Dr. Awosika over the years I have visited him and his staff has exercised nothing but the same.

I have every confidence that I am receiving the best care available from Dr. Awosika. He is very knowledgeable and cares about his patients, and he is very easy to talk to and answers all of my questions. Because his office staff is very nice and always helpful, it’s a pleasure to work with them. I am very grateful to be in Dr. Awosika’s care.

When my doctor told me I was being referred to a kidney specialist I was very nervous and apprehensive for my first appointment. From the moment I entered Dr. Awosika’s office I was greeted with the most cheerful and fun people that made me feel like I had been there many times before. I cannot tell you how much this helped me get passed that initial fear. Thank you all….you are the very best!

What can one say about an A-team? Dr. Awosika is professional, compassionate and dedicated in his field, you can tell this the first time you enter his office, the staff is friendly, accommodating, informative and best of all patient. You aren’t just an insurance number, you are a person who the doctors and staff spend time with and treat you as you deserve to be treated. Thank you Dr. Awosika and his staff of professionals, keep up the great work. You all remind me of what my nursing mentor had said to our class (many moons ago), treat people how you would want to be treated when faced with a healthcare issue. Bless all of you and again thank you.

Sandra

A few short months ago Sandra insisted, “I’m NOT cooking.” Surprise… with a bit of motivation and know-how she’s now whipping up Sweet Potato Quinoa Patties and healthy veggie dishes on a regular basis. She’s even “pushing plants” on her neighbors! The best news? Her kidney function has improved by 13 points and blood glucose levels are down. PLUS Sandra has also stopped smoking!Take a bow Sandra, you rock!

Eleanor

In an effort to avoid surgery and additional medical interventions, Eleanor wholeheartedly embraced Dr. Awosika’s recommendation to follow a plant-based dietary pattern. This commitment to her new, healthier lifestyle has been a huge success! Recent lab work shows that Eleanor’s kidney function improved by a whopping 25 points, her blood pressure and glucose levels are stable and she even lost 10 pounds. Plus, she is constantly amazed at how much delicious food she gets to eat.

Renay

Renay attended the Food for Life: Diabetes Initiative series and is embracing the lifestyle changes recommended by her doctor. She has lowered her insulin requirements and lost 35 lbs!

“I feel independent, like I used to when I was young,” she explains. “It’s so exciting to find something that makes me feel normal again.”
