I needed immediate care and had a great deal of trouble finding a child psychiatrist in my area. I felt very fortunate to get an appointment that worked for me within a week. The initial interview allowed for a diagnosis and treatment that seems to be working for my child. I feel very thankful for the doctor's expertise and availability. Santa Rosa

Dr. Oklan is the only psychiatrist I know who returns phone calls promptly. This may not seem like a very big thing, but it is very rare in my experience. It has helped to handle crises before they become full blown. He also follows up on his patients as often as is necessary. He is empathic, down-to-earth, and brilliant as a diagnostician, psychotherapist and in the appropriate use of medications.

Dr. Oklan has been my family's psychiatrist for over one year. He has been consistently astute in his clinical expertise and medication administration in a difficult case that previously seen clinicians have been unsuccessful in treating. He is available and cares greatly about his patients.

My family has had experiences with Dr. Oklan for 25 years, and we could not rate him higher. We have seen him in a variety of mental health situations, including serious emergencies, and we know him to be a caring, intelligent and skilled professional. Our family has trusted him with one of our beloved family members, and he has never let us down.
