Patient Comments (3)
Attleboro, MA |
Dr. Okpara showed limited knowledge of the issues I was dealing with. She is not up to date on the latest research on issues like small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, candida overgrowth, et cetera. It seems like she relies exclusively on what she learned in med school, regardless of the fact that she is unable to help her patients.
in North Kingstown, RI |
My office visit and subsequent colonoscopy with Dr. Okpara left me with a most positive impression of her and the W & I practice. Everyone whom I encountered--the receptionist/appt. confirmer, procedure reviewer, nurses, and physician--were thoughtful, respectful, and completely focused on my care. The overall experience did not feel like a "colonoscopy factory" as with other facilities. It felt as if my care was their sole focus. Dr. Okpara is professional and highly qualified.
Cumberland, RI |
Very straightforward, but I felt rushed and like I was not deemed as important when she decided I did not have a serious, chronic condition. I was handed some printouts, told to take some Metamucil and sent on my way. I feel like she didn't really hear me and only wanted me to answer her specific questions and was not interested in anything else I thought might be useful or relevant. Left feeling discouraged with no real answers.
