Dr Opoko-Boateng was the surgeon who removed my thyroid. I would highly recommend her. She is very personable, and compassionate. Explains everything very plainly. And done a fantastic job of a difficult surgery. She is wonderful.

My 18 year old son had a challenging surgery and Dr. Oboku-Boateng knew what to do. Not only is she medically smart she has a wonderful bedside manner which meant a lot to an 18 year old boy who didn't sink he's be waking up from emergency abdominal surgery

I had a friend who had a successful operation under Dr. O-B. I believe her to be conscientious. However, for the sake of anybody considering her I must tell you that I went to see her for hernia repair. While under the knife, she punctured my bladder (or nicked it, as they put it); I had to stay overnight and was catheterized for twelve days. And charged the maximum my insurance would allow me to pay for the experience. I strongly recommend going to Boston or NYC for surgery if possible.
