My referring internist was right! I was referred to Dr Okoro about six years ago by my internist. He said "All my patients love her, you WILL like her". He was right. Over the years she has treated me for several conditions, both upper GI and lower GI. She has always helped me improve. As I get older, these conditions are simply going to happen. She is very pleasant, but she also tells me what I need to know. I strongly recommend Dr. Okoro if you need a gastroenterologist.

I moved to Atlanta from Philadelphia in 2016. After finding a primary physician, I asked about a gastroenterologist as I had surgery fo colon cancer in 2014 and needed to continue the five year protocol. Dr. Okoro was recommended and am ever so grateful. Her vivacious personality put me at ease, Her professionalism conveyed her concern and determination to address and resolve some issued that arose in monitoring my health during the protocol period. Her recommendations and medication adjustments have allowed my next follow-up visit to be six months out. Again, I am ever grateful for the recommendation and will continue having her as MY gastroenterologist as long as necessary.

From the moment I walked in the door, I felt comfortable. The staff was friendly and professional. Dr. Oroko was wonderful! She answered all of my questions and really put me at ease. I’m still not excited about my procedure, but Dr. Orono really settled my nerves. I’m very confident in her.

I must begin by saying,"I have not solicited a medical professional's opinion in the past 25 years due to a lack of trust."The front office team Carol, Cherye and Lawanda were very professional. They, in a way, made it feels if I was at a family gathering. It was now time to meet Dr. Okoro. She entered the room as a confident figure with professionalism leading the way. Her method of communication was "dummy proof". I left Dr. Okoro's office with a pure feeling of trust.
