I have been a patient of Dr. Okani's for several years and I have great faith in his judgement. He has a wonderful manner of speaking with his patients so that they understand what is happening with their body and how it is to be treated. I have recommended him to several of my friends and will continue to do so. I thank him for all that he is doing for me. With God working through him I know that one day I will be completely cured.

Dr Omani was very kind and very knowledgeable about breast cancer. He explained all the test results, information about what my mom has and the best way to proceed. He was very thorough and told us what to expect throughout this process.
