Dr. O'Keefe has been my doctor for over 10 years now. I am a "challenging patient" with many different ongoing conditions. She handles them all. If she doesn't know the answer, she finds it out. She never gives up, or loses patience. Her bedside manner is excellent. She listens, is well-informed and up-to-date. I have seen many doctors in my life...she is the best I have ever had! I spent 25 yrs. myself in the medical field. I know it from the inside out. Excellent communicator!
