Ratings for Dr. Abraham Onuora
Dr Onuora has been a god send to me. I started seeing him when I was 19 and misdiagnosed several times. My first appointment with him was the day I got out of the hospital for trying to kill myself. I am now 38 and still see him regularly to maintain what he had me properly diagnosed with. I have never met a dr who goes out of his way for their patients like he does!
Very nice man. Been going to him for a few years now and he has been very helpful. Very kind, funny, pleasant. Not usually on time in the mornings but other than that no complaints. His secretary, Shauna, is FABULOUS!! Can not say enough good things about this lady, she is sweet, funny and so easygoing. After i talk to her i feel like i no longer need to go in to see him!!!
Definitely not about making you "feel good", but he took very little time to get a diagnosis and begin treating me. Listened to my comments and adjusted my meds as required. Tells it like it is, no mollycoddling, but in my case at least, very effective in treating my disorder.
He made me feel like I was useless and lying about what was going on. I heard the words, paranoid, nonsense and I was making up a conspiracy. When I asked him what my conspiracy theory was he wouldn't tell me. Told me he really couldn't do anything about my situation and basically sent me home. This was after about 3 sessions - a total waste of my time! Doubt I'll be back. He is really hard to understand and takes little insignificant things and talks about that for the whole session ! I sometimes wonder what he is talking about. Even divulged information about another patient to me, like this patient is ridiculous too!! Totally unbelievable! I left there feeling totally confused and helpless. Told him some major stuff in my life and he brushed it off like it didn't matter. Not really sure why he chose this profession.
Seven days after I attempted suicide, I told dr. Onuora I was still contemplating and wanted to kill myself. His expert advice was; "a loaded gun pointed at your head is still only a thought until you pull the trigger." Will be lodging a formal complaint - could never recommend this doctor to anyone struggling with mental health issues.
I saw Dr. Onuora for a number of months, but we were just not on the same wavelength, some of it was cultural - no doubt. He would ask me about things and take the most insignificant thing that I said and go on and on with it down a rabbit trail, missing the main point completely. I had to get my husband to come in with me to help with his accent. I would get too much anxiety about going, that I eventually stopped. He did do a good job with the meds, though.
