This coupled with great people and listening skills ensures Dr Arikawe provides excellent and effective patient care.
Doctor seemed to be in a rush. Did not seem that interested in my problem, barely looked at me for diagnostics, didn't appear to care about my issue. Did not go into detail on how to use prescription cream. "Consultation" done in less than 5 minutes. Bad day perhaps?
Visited Dr Arikawe today with my elderly mother who had had a fall and the doctor listened patiently to mum's recollection of the events and was very kind and understanding towards her and mum feels very confident she is being looked after well by Dr Arikawe.
She listened intently and explained fully my questions. She did not rush me in any way. The doctor also put my mind at rest.
