Danger to society. Terrible staff that swears at you. Dirty facility. It's hell.

Insidiously condescending man. Long story short, within 30 minutes he managed to minimize the struggles of the LGBT community by misdiagnosing what I now feel is homophobia-induced complex ptsd (with bdp overlap) as psychosis (schizo-based I'm guessing) filled with delusional paranoia (that those homophobes were simply "hallucinations"). To be fair, he wasn't the first doctor to do this to me. He blamed the psychosis on my cannabis use (he's of the bs "no accepted medical use" school of thought)
Wait times were awful and never spent more than 10 minutes with me.They need to stop over booking. Office staff also does not return calls. Needs to spend more time with patients instead of prescribing medication on top of medication.

he is the worst psychiatrist I have ever experienced... I cam in voiced out my ptsd and horrible experience with my traumatic life and he judged me by saying I need to get over past experiences. I asked him to prescribe me xanax because it is what works instead he got me on 4 different medications that made me suicidal and had a bunch of other side effects. (if you have taken ssri's) you know what I mean. The staff treats you like you are a drug addict and totally disrespectful.

He listened and wasn't condescending. He also gave me more time than most psychiatrists.

The Department of Motor Vehicle said. The reason we have to come in every year is because Dr. Okeke filled out the paper work wrong, especially number 11 were he could have actually put an end this yearly paper work by telling them in number 11 that it was no long needed, anything else. but he put{ none} of which automatically renews the need for the yearly paper work.
