“Dr Ighodalo is far and away the best doctor I have ever met and nothing I can say really does justice to the man: he is extremely intelligent, a compassionate and caring person ,and a truly outstanding doctor. I count myself truly lucky to have found him. I have known Paul since he first opened his practice — in fact, I think I am patient No. 9 – so I feel that I am well qualified to comment on his abilities.
Dr. Ighodalo’s custom (at least with me) is to treat the whole person, not just the symptom du jour. In my case he has treated high blood pressure, cholesterol, insomnia, burns, chronic pain and any number of transient issues. Over time that has led me to become healthy for the first time in years. I am fit, blood pressure is way down and I sleep well. Although he uses herbal remedies they are strictly an adjunct to the first line defense of good old Western Medicine. (I suspect that as a former engineer he is a believer in demonstrated results).
Dr. Ighodalo spends a huge amount of time with me on each office visit — at least an hour, often longer. Frequently, we spend time just chatting and catching up on any number of things. He is interested and is interesting; a good combination. Trust me on this: you will like the man.
Although the cost is a bit higher than the average doctor, that same doctor would have seen at least four patients in the time Dr. Ighodalo gives to one patient. His practice is much closer to the English or European model than the typical American practice. There are no ghastly Nurse Assistants to “room” you (isn’t it amazing that’s a verb now). Staff greets you and then the doctor does all of the metrics himself. To put it another way, what you get from Dr. Abramson is cheap at the price: an overworked GP who gives you 10 minutes may be cheaper on the day but in the long run you will pay more: both monetarily and in the value of your overall health.
The office staff have bent over backwards to assist me. For example, I lost all of my claim forms and therefore could not submit my claims to my insurance company. I notified the office and the next day I received an overnight packet with copies of all my receipts and claim forms, That was a lot of work on very short notice. Equally, I always receive an email and a phone call reminding me of an upcoming appointment.
I strongly feel that Dr Ighodalo is sort of the ideal of a family doctor. He genuinely cares, he is professional and he makes an investment in the health and well being of his patients. That is as rare as hens’ teeth in today’s world.
If you are looking for a doctor you could not do better.”
