Comments About the Doctor:
Dr. Ugheoke is one of the most compassionate doctors I’ve meet in quite some time. He takes his time and listens and expresses concern. He has the best bedside manner. Not only does he try to educate his patients and their family, he goes the extra mile and asks his staff to do the same. I love his level of professionalism. I love his office staff. They are courteous and friendly. I don’t know what the make up of his UC patients is, but I’m quite sure he has a great number of them. We have not had any insurance issues and his staff is prompt with Billing and letting us know if there is something that is not covered. I recommend Dr. Ugheoke to anyone in the Huntsville, AL area who has any GI issues.
I agree with the above statement EXCEPT it doesn’t change the fact he and his staff are almost entirely incompetent. I have been misdiagnosed and nearly died from cdiff under his care. He has incorrectly filled out an urgent prescription that caused me many problems. Gayle and Carol are complete liars and manipulators. This last prescription was sent to the wrong pharmacy after I told them the correct one to send to. They didn’t have the decency to cancel it and keep the correct one. When I called to make a complaint they turned it around and never apologized. They treated me as if I shouldn’t have called to say anything. I spoke nicely and calmly and was hung up on. Those employees are worthless no matter how much they smile and pretend to care.
My wife was referred to him and she requested for another gastroenterologist because she didn’t want the headache. Save yourself the headache and find another Dr. If he changed his staff I would recommend him because he really is a nice guy. This isn’t a personal attack on my behalf but his staff, Gayle and now Carol, are vindictive manipulators. Even the receptionist is at the very least an airhead.
