Patient Comments (2)
in West Chester, OH |
Excellent care by Dr. Okum and his staff, the follow up after surgery was beyond fantastic. Dr. Okum and his dedicated staff were there to answer any and all of my questions.
in Goshen, OH |
I was referred to Dr. Okum to have the mini-maze procedure done. I sat face to face with him and specifically asked what the risks were with this procedure and he told me no risks (I have witness). During the procedure, he cut the nerve that goes to my diaphragm and now I have a lot of difficulty breathing. I've been told there is no way to correct this. I spent 10 days in Cardio Vascular Intensive Care for what Dr. Okum told me would be a 3 day recovery. Then he tried to cover up his error.
