What Our Patients Say…
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!
