Dr. Okere is amazing. His bedside manner, expertise and professionalism is 5 STAR. I can't thank Dr. Okere and his wonderful team enough for saving my life.
in Manchester, New Jersey |
Dr. Okere is remarkable. He absolutely saved my adopted sisters life. I would highly recommend him to everyone needing a cardiologist. My sister is in the hospital and before he left for the night I heard him say here is my cell phone number. Don't go through the answering service if you need me. He is so special. You can see the caring he has for his patients on his face. You can really see that he cares about his patients and does go out of his way to help them be healthy.
