Patient Comments (4)

Dr. Okuhara is one of the best Drs I have been to and that says a Lot since I am very judgmental when it comes to the medical profession. She is kind, caring, and knowledgeable. I would only say that I am not always able to get a live person when I call which can delay treatment.

Love Doctor Okuara she's a wonderful doctor and her two nurses that work with her are so sweet!!! But with that said the front staff is awful and very rude!!! No training on how to speak to patient on the phone and they are not hired by Doc Okuara but thru the medical group!!

Dr. Okuhara has been my doctor for over 2 years. She is caring and thoughtful, and ensures you hear advice which is best for you. She consistently has a reason for what she recommends, but hears my viewpoint. She is one of the best doctors I have ever had.
