Fluent in twelve different languages, Millennium has broadened the meaning of diversity in the workplace. Not only does the staff speak a variety of different languages, they also specialize in the different aspects of health. “I think it’s crucial to have this kind of range, especially in a clinic. By eliminating the possibility of a language barrier, we can focus on the matter at hand.” With Spanish, French, Hindi, and Urdu being just a few, Millennium’s range of languages has aided them in their approach towards their international patients.  

The subject of international patients is an interesting topic to say the least. “It’s hard to imagine, but our patients come to us from 114 countries,” Dr. Udochi says. “This proves that the boundaries in medicine are seemingly limitless. We have patients from as far as Turkey. I never know where my patients will be from, and that’s a big reason why I find this aspect of the field so fascinating.” By expanding her services, Dr. Udochi continues to add to the capabilities of Millennium.

We have a full range of equipment and the ability to conduct many medical tests onsite. We are able to treat many health problems that people typically encounter.” Seeing a plethora of different patients, Millennium’s experience within the field has garnered them the ability to take on anything.
