Valrico, FL |
Was very helpful with my knee pain and was given a cortisone shot which helped greatly.
Ruskin, FL |
You have to get past the staff to see a doctor. Twice they scheduled me with the PA even though I specifically discussed the fact that I wanted to see the doctor not a PA. They're dishonest, and they're very difficult to deal with if you need to get injections ordered from your specialty pharmacy. Dr. Okun is a good doctor but the hassle of dealing with the staff in this practice is something new patient you have to deal with. Patients who come to orthopedic surgeons are in pain!

I broke my right ankle in four places & dislocated my foot . 2013 . My foot was hanging on by a few tendons & skin . I find Dr. Okun very professional , kind and explains well the procedure . He saved my foot . I'm doing great thanks to Dr. Okun . I've had some follow up to remove the plate , my body rejected . Other wise doing great considering the extent of the damages . I would highly recommend him. Jane Norris Sun City Center fl.

Dr Okun performed a total knee replacement and the results have been fantastic. He is very good at explaining the whole procedure without rushing you. His professionalism puts you at ease. We chose him because of the recommendations of so many friends.

My wife, a Ukrainian lady, had to have knee surgery in 2003 to repair a torn meniscus. John did it quickly, exceptionally well and she was very pleased with the results.
