He is excellent, very busy which is a good thing - better than not being busy would recommend *Dr. Ekpo to anyone! However this last visit he was way behind (granted I had one of the last appointments of the day) it was almost 1 1/2 to 2 hours later than my appointment time.

*Dr. Ekpo listens and explains very well; When I got to appointment, I was told the doctor was running late. I did not mind waiting.
