Longwood, FL |
Dr. O did my emergency surgery gallbladder surgery recently.. When he came into the ER room, he explained everything in great detail, even drew us a picture to show us what he was going to do. I received excellent, professional care delivered with kindness. Dr Olukoga is professional and caring which goes a long ways nowadays.

Amazing guy
in Orlando, FL |
I had never had any surgery prior to an emergency appendectomy. The pain was excruciating, but Dr. O was able to calm me and reassure me before quickly performing the surgery. I could not be more satisfied with the outcome or with Dr. O. If you're even the least bit nervous about surgery, he's your guy!
Orlando, FL |
I was treated by Dr. Olukoga for an elective umbilical hernia repair. I found him to be very patient, very attentive and I quickly developed trust in him. The day of surgery he again spoke about the options available to me and the type of surgery I would be having. Dr. Olukoga spent time talking about my expected recovery and what to expect. On the follow-up appointment he was very thorough explained that the procedure was a success and reassured me that if I had questions I could contact him
in Winter Springs, FL |
From my first visit up to post surgery Dr. Olukoga and his staff both in the office & at Florida Hospital the day of my surgery were amazing! I had an umbilical hernia that was quite painful. During surgery, he discovered 3 more! I like the fact that he took the time to check other areas and not just focus on the one spot. I did have another hernia that couldn't be operated on at the time. I'm looking forward to having Dr. O work on me again soon! Very satisfied!
in Oviedo, FL |
Dr Olukoga saved me. I had an on going gastric issue for over 4 years. I was in and out of the hospital for the past year. I have been seen by 3 specialist. None found major issues with me. My health was deteriorating fast pier to my final trip to the hospital. Dr. O was remarkable in assessing my situation with ease. I ended up having emergency surgery to remove my Gallbladder. He changed my quality of life forever.

Do Olukoga is a terrific physician. I had never even been admitted to a hospital before much less undergone surgery and Dr. O was comforting and professional during my entire experience. Highly recommended. Mark Mead

Very knowledgeable!
in Winter Park, Fl |
I had been dealing with a situation for years and had consulted with a few Dr's overtime, No one made me as at ease with surgery as Dr Olukoga. He was highly professional and knowledgeable yet pleasantly down to earth. He doesn't give you a chance to be pessimistic. My whole experience was all positive. I would recommend Dr. Olukoga any day.
in Winter Park, FL |
I am so grateful to have found Dr. Olukoga. I was having sharp pains in upper abdomen and I was being told it was just gastritis. I knew something was not right. I researched and found Dr. Olukoga. He listened to me and what I was feeling, I was certain it was my gallbladder and he agreed. The Dr. O put my and my husband worries as ease as I had to have emergency surgery. He is the most caring Dr. and truly there for you. All his staff is amazing. I will be sending my family to him.
in Lake Mary, FL |
I have been very blessed to have been treated be Dr Olukoga. He makes a true connection with his patients to ensure they are well and comfortable. I have not met a surgeon that is so passionate about his work (this is my 6th). Dr Olokuga relates with you to ensure you understand what you are going through and will give you the most honest guidance and advice so you can continue to live a healthy live.

Casselberry, FL |
Having Dr. Olukoga as my surgeon was one the best choices I could have made for my health. He took his time and paid attention to all the small details that other surgeons have failed to do in the past. You can tell he has the passion and drive for the job and genuinely cares for his patients. There is not one bad thing I could say and I am very pleased with my medical care and surgery. I would 100% recommend him to anyone I know.
in Orlando, FL |
I was admitted to Florida Hospital Winter Park after a CT scan found a perforated appendix. Dr. Olukoga introduced himself and explained everything to myself and my wife. The surgery went as expected and I am fully recovered at this time. Dr. Olukoga is a true professional and Florida Hospital should be grateful they have such a great Doctor.
in Oviedo, FL |
Dr. O. was very professional and detail oriented and answered all the questions I had before and after my appendectomy. I'm a 29 year old male, travel often, and I'm very active. Dr. O. was very accommodating to my lifestyle and did all he could to assure me the best road to recovery. Highly recommended him for any specialized surgery!
in Winter Garden, FL |
He was very helpful and informative. He told me what to expect before during and after my surgery. Very professional
Winter Garden, FL |
From beginning to the end my experience with Dr. Olukoka was excellent. Although my surgery he probably could of done with his eyes closed, he made me feel very at ease. While at the hospital almost every nurse I cam into contact with had something great to say about him and how great he is at what he does. Thanks Dr. O, and I don't have another appendix but if I did I would definitely be a repeat customer.
Orlando, FL |

I can't say enough of amazing things of Dr. "O"! (Dr. Christopher Olukoga) For the past 3 years I've been suffering from a very bad pain that no one was able to help me until Dr. O saw me. He basically gave me life back & normality to an unstable body with his amazing care. Surgery went well & his team was always their to insure I was well taken care. Thank you Dr. O! Tears of emotions & happiness were shared today at our 1st visit after surgery. A feeling that finally I am in good hands

He is THE BEST. He explains everything in words you can easily understand. He takes all the time the patient and the family needs to explain everything. Post op he is excellent with the family, taking time and explaining everything that occurred during the procedure. His work, surgery, is EXCELLENT! He did a complicated laparoscopic hernia repair for me and the results were perfect. Post op with the patient and the follow on office visits, he and his staff are excellent, the best.

Dr Olukoga is a very professional, kind, comforting surgeon. He made sure I was completely comfortable during the consultation, taking time to answer all my questions and never making me feel like he was in a hurry. It was obvious that I was his priority. Additionally, my surgery went very well with no complications. He was even kind enough to avoid cutting into my tattoo as much as he possibly could, although he did not have to do that for me. I definitely recommend him.
in Orlando, FL |
Dr. O and his staff are absolutely the most positive, friendly, and professional I have ever experienced.

Dr. Olukoga performed surgery on my 81 year old mother. During the surgery it was discovered that her appendix had ruptured. He was very patient, took the time to listen to me and understood my concern regarding my mom's Alzheimer's disease when mixed with anesthesia. After the procedure he was very thorough in his explanation of what was going on with my mom and his caring demeanor showed through. I would highly recommend this surgeon.

Terrific experience overall. The office building for 'The Center for Specialized Surgery - Winter Park' was a bit difficult to find because Google maps shows it at the wrong address.

I had a gallblader attack and was taken to the ER. Dr O. did the consult and decided to operate. Dr. O has great bed side manner while being extremely thorough and knowledgeable.

I was referred to Dr. Olukoga by my primary care physician who said he would only recommend the best. He was right about that. I prayed & did some research on Dr. O & had a total peace about him, prior to making the initial appointment & have him do the double inguinal hernia surgery. His staff told me they love working with him, which speaks volumes. He met with my wife & I prior to the surgery & was very comforting. Surgery went extremely well, no complications. I highly recommend Dr. Olukoga

I went to the emergency room for a gall bladder attack while on Christmas vacation. Dr. Olukoga performed gall bladder surgery that day. On New Year’s Eve I needed a different pain med and he called it right in. On New Years’ Day I was concerned about one particular incision. Dr. O met me at his office, examined me, determined I was fine and bandaged me back up. I was embarrassed at my overreaction but he went out of his way to reassure me and let me know it was ok. Amazing man! God bless Dr.O!!
in Winter Park, FL |
Went in for right side open mesh inguinal hernia. Guys, stop reading all the horror stories online. Dr Olukoga is amazing! I'm two weeks post surgery and feel fine. I was walking right after recovery. Pain was less than 0.001 on a scale of 1-10. I was out and about the next day. Just no heavy lifting.

Dr. Olukoga was quick to diagnose my incarcerated hernia when he was called to the ER for a consult. Due to the severity of my hernia, he put me ahead of previous scheduled surgeries and within an hour had me in the operating room. Dr. Olukoga is a very professional, knowledgeable surgeon and explained my surgical procedure so that I knew what was going to happen every step of the way. His bedside manners are top notch and exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend him for surgery.

Dr. Olukoga examined me in the emergency room and then had me scanned xrayed and found that I had a rupture appendix. He quickly had me prep for a operation and was operating on me within a hour or so after his evaluation of my condition. He was excellent, assuring me and explaining what he was going to do. He came after the operation and explained what he found and to see how I was doing. I will recommend Dr. Olugoga to all my friends and he is the best . A true concerning professional surgeon.

In October, 2016, I went to Winter Park Hospital Emergency Room in horrible pain. After an MRI, I was blessed with the appearance of Dr. O., who explained in detail my diagnosis of acute diverticulitis and a gall stone. The next day, I underwent surgery. Post-op, Dr. O told me I would need further surgery, which horrified me. I have never met a more compassionate & caring Dr. in my life. Dec 15, 2016, he performed a colon re-section. I love Dr.O and highly recommend him!
