A Gem!!
My visit with Dr. Okoro was great! I love her energy and spirit. Dr. Okoro is attentive, knowledgeable, personable, and professional. She put my mind at ease about my upcoming procedures. I feel confident having her as my gastroenterologist. Although I am a new patient, I have already made recommendations to others.

I've been treated by DR. Okoro for several months now. I hadn't eaten fruits, vegetables, or nuts since I was nine years old, because I would vomit them back up. I'm able to eat these things now. While she did give me a had time for waiting until I turned 52 to be concerned, she has changed my life in a matter of months. I am grateful for the service. The office is always clean. Staff is very helpful and informative. Dr Okoro knows her stuff! She is awesome!!!

Dr. Okoro gets a 5-star and "Top Doc" rating from me! She has taken excellent care of my digestive system health and my peace of mind, as well, over the years. So meticulous and caring in her work---doing it with positivity, style and a big smile, that I always leave with a smile on my face! Her contagious spirit radiates throughout the office, and she has wonderfully warm and attentive personal nurses, and staff support system.

Dr. Okoro has been my doctor for one year and I'm very impressed with her professionalism and attentiveness to my needs. When it comes to reviews for things such as this or even fast food establishments, we oftentimes hear about the negatives. I wanted to take a moment to recognize the positivity in my experience. Dr. Okoro always asks for feedback regarding treatment and actively listens to all questions and concerns. Let me also mention the staff at Atlanta Gastro from the reception staff to support staff (Cheryl and Fran) have also been very helpful and need to recognized. She is always professional and well dressed as other reviews have mentioned. During my procedure last year, she calmed my fears and explained everything that was happening. As long as Dr. Okoro is still practicing no matter where she is, she will always have me as her patient. Much respect and appreciation.

Dr. Okoro has been a blessing to my health. I had an issue for two years and in one visit she recommended a remedy to help with the pain and ordered the right scans to see what was going on. She offered clear next steps and encouraged me to be an advocate for my health. She was very patient and truly made me feel like she cares about my health overall. She referred me to physicians that she trusted to provide the same level of care. I have recommended her to family and friends who may be in need. Again, she has been a true blessing to my health.

In addition, Dr. Okoro is SUPER relatable, which disarms me and makes me feel very comfortable. She’s an INCREDIBLE physician. I would recommend her to anyone.

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.
