Dr. Tarmin is a fantastic doctor! She has experience and delivers all information in a warm, calm, "chilled" way so that it's not so scary to go for a colonoscopy. She responds to emails immediately and calls right away. I'm crazy about her and highly recommend her.

I was unable to set up a visit via Zoom during the pandemic but Dr. Blum found a work-around. My experience in dealing with the office was generally good and he was timely in his responses on their portal. It was very difficult to reach his office by telephone.

I found Dr. Okasi while looking for a black GYN, and I am SO glad that I did. From the beginning, Dr. Okasi was very sweet and thorough. If I could give Dr. Okasi more than 5 stars, I definitely would.

Jun 21 2020

Review for Dr. Okasi

Fake. Unprofessional. Ridiculous. Condescending. This office is a prime example of how NOT to treat women. This provider and her staff were by far my worst experience with a medical care provider. If you value good health care - stay away from this office. I will never go back again.

Jun 19 2020

Review for Dr. Okasi

She lures job seekers in, usually for an unpaid so-called orientation, then finds flimsy excuses not to officially onboard you upon completion. Scammer if you ask me. Job seekers, beware.

Jun 12 2020

Review for Dr. Okasi

Dr. Onwueme is a lovely man. He is polite, engaging, professional and does his job very well. His colleagues also told me he was "brilliant" "kind" and values his work colleagues and treats all of them with sensitivity and respect. I receive great care from him!
