I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Okechukwu. He is extremely knowledgeable within his field. Dr. Okechukwu answered all my questions. I was treated with respect from the time I checked in until I checked out. His staff were extremely nice and helpful. Thank you Dr. Okechukwu for all that you have done for me as your patient.

Dr Ok is a great doctor. But I wouldn't recommend him due to incompetent\unprofessional staff. They seem to never be prepared. They wait until day of appt to retrieve lab results. First few visits, I was triaged in a conference room sitting at a boardroom table to give my vitals which were written on a scratch paper instead of directly in my medical records\notes. My pharmacy consistently has trouble getting return calls from their office for refills. I end up facilitating the refills.
