I saw Dr. Okereke for low back spasms and pain. She took a thorough history, did a comprehensive exam and we talked. She is thorough , complete and caring. Her treatment was successful. I would recommend her without hesitation for non surgical back pain.

Dr. Okereke and her team Joy and John), are knowledgeable, professional, and made an apprehensive old man, that was uneasy about spine injections, at ease. It was easier and faster than I had expected. They were concerned about my comfort and made it as painless as possible.

Dr. Okereke is very proactive at keeping patients informed. She called me within hours of having an MRI to discuss the results (herniated disc) and schedule follow ups, which included a steroid epidural. She even called me from the airport on her way out of the country to follow up.
