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."

Dr. Okoye Jr Says:

Good healthcare is about patients' satisfaction with their individual care and we, as providers should strive at all times to give our utmost best even in the most unpleasant of circumstances, keeping in mind that it's not about us. A suffering patient or loved one is hardly in the frame of mind to worry about anything else but themselves.

West Orange, NJ |
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. He didn't help me at all, and was extremely egotistical. On top of that, I waited a whopping 40 mins. to even see him when there was no other patients in his office!
