As a patient coming from outside of Stanford for a consultation Dr. Enemchukwu was absolutely wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. She put me at ease right away and freely offered her expertise for my particular problem. I had confidence in what she had to say. She had clearly looked at my medical records in advance and was ready to tell me her thoughts about my problems, explaining in detail the complications of my situation. I learned a great deal.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

good, very happy with the doctor

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

Dr. E is the greatest...explained everything very carefully and openly addressed my concerns...GREAT DOCTOR!!! Dr. E was the attending physician when I previously had my Euro Dynamic Test...the only problem was my huge misunderstanding of the procedure...I thought that Euro was short for European and Dynamic meant some kind of body work...so I showed up for the procedure thinking that it was some kind of a spa treatment...and very thoughtfully, no one explained in advance that it was a pressure test of my indoor plumbing...probably best that the details of the test and the plumbing equipment that was to be used were not explained in advance...I might not have been so truthful about my symptoms...Dr. E was very supportive when I asked for a shot of macho...honestly, it was a far cry from the European spa treatment that I thought I signed up for.

SHC Patient, Jun 2017

Dr. E and her nurse went above and beyond in taking care of a critical situation. They stayed late and solved the problem efficiently compassionately and totally reassured me of their concern.

SHC Patient, Jun 2016

SHC Patient, May 2016

Dr. E came off brusque and lacking some respect for my needs, concerns and frustration with my ongoing symptoms. I feel it inhibited the partnership we need to develop. However, as my culture results came back, Dr. E emailed me right away via MyHealth and explained next steps. Her email was very professional, detailed and made me feel better about my situation. I responded to her email and she responded back within a couple hours.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Very nice and good experience when observing every person that takes care of me as if it was something of their family like someone that wants and offer it's sad but I recognize it in Mexico they don't treat people like that. They discriminate them, hurt them and only take care of you with their voice.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

There are times when women need female doctors & this was definitely one of those times. My doctor was excellent!
