I had hand surgery with Dr Okezie for a fractured wrist many years ago. I also consulted with him on elbow surgery. My wife had surgery with Dr. Okezie to repair a shoulder injury and is now returning for arthritis in her hand. Dr. Okezie is great. He explains things and will take the time to show you xrays, and explain procedures. He also seems to be up on latest techniques. Recommend him highly!

He explained I shouldn’t say I have a high tolerance for pain if I didn’t. This was after a mangled wrist that was broken in 2 places, hanging and had to be put back together. As a so called educated man should know there’s no Superwoman.He treated me like he had an issue with me as soon as he came in the room.I guess I was laughing and joking,trying to keep my mind off my dead dad and trying to be an easy patient. He doesn’t like you, he will torture you.Reporting him to him to highest level

Dr Okezie is a good surgeon and a nice person completely tore my carpal band he replaced it with a ligament from my forearm without the need for pins and screws it's great to by at the gym daily lifting heavy weights without any wrist pain and that's a good thing when your 60 years young if you need wrist surgery he's your man.
