How likely are you to recommend Dr. Afonja?
I did extensive research ahead of scheduling my mother's oncologist appointment. Unfortunately, mammograms and ultrasound revealed breast cancer. My mom is in her late 70's. She is deaf and doesn't speak English. I needed to find a doctor that had many years of experience and who had excellent bed side manners. Dr. Afonja seemed to have that good ratings and reviews. After many months of radiation and weekly/monthly follow-up treatment visits with Dr. Afonja, he proved to be excellent. He is very caring, takes his time explaining medical tests, results, expected outcomes, prognosis and provided a thorough explanation of a recovery plan. He even provided us several times (without being asked) with his personal cell phone number should we have any questions or concerns. I did text him once with a question and he answered immediately. Which doctor does that in today's times? Not many.. Patients are usually instructed to call the office or on-call answering service who then relays the mess
