Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Okoye Jr "My treatment approach is patient-centered. I encourage my patients to lead the dialogue and speak freely while I prompt and guide them. I often employ personal stories of successes and failures to reassure them that they are never necessarily alone in their dilemma, my ultimate goal being to see that anxious patient that walked into my office, eventually leave with a sense of relief that they have some answers to their health issues."

I agree with the most recent review. Dr. Okoye is has the worst bedside manner. I came to him in a time of desperation and hopelessness. He was condescending and rude.
