Dr. Okereke is a superb doctor. He is extremely knowledgeable and thorough and takes time to explain very carefully his treatment plans and advice. He answers all questions and does not rush things at all. Top notch.

Thus gentleman is one of the unorganized cardiologist I've ever met. Referred my husband to have open heart surgery since he has no remembrance of. Not once came to see my husband once surgery was done. Spend 8 days in the hospital he never followed up with my husband until discharge was scheduled....more

I wish other doctors were like Dr. Okereke. He is a great guy! Easy to talk to, very humble. Unlike some doctors who have a chip on their shoulders. I think he is a doctor because he truly cares about people. He's the best!!!
