She was very polite and kind. Really seemed to care and was reassuring with my worries. Very professional! The rest of the staff was also very pleasant and helpful. I finally decided to switch my OBGYN was very unprofessional and careless. My old OBGYN told me not to worry about something that was clearly abnormal. I found Dr. Chetanna Okasi on ZocDoc, booked the appointment, I was seen within 5 minutes. They asked questions, no awkwardness. Just professional, kind people in a clean, well-lit, positive vibes environment. Felt much better after leaving. I left knowing they'd do right by me and really care to help.

Dr. Okasi and staff are wonderful. They are very quick and efficient but do not give you the feeling of being "rushed" - which I greatly appreciate as I cannot stand long doctor visits. Very professional bedside manner and she makes sure all your questions and concerns are taken care of before you leave.

Dr. Okasi is friendly and informative. She never rushes me and answers all my questions with honesty. She is very down-to-earth and genuinely cares about her patients' well-being. She was caring and compassionate prior to my surgery and kind and so thoughtful after my surgery (she even sent me flowers to cheer me up!). Her staff are helpful and prompt. Everyone treated me with the utmost kindness and professionalism. She is definitely the best doctor I have ever had!

Alright... the wait was amazing, granted I went early in the morning so there is only so many patients to be backed up with. I will say the office itself was nice, clean, and the staff and doctor were very professional. But bedside manner was lacking. Dr. Okasi never introduced herself to me when she walked in, didn't ask my name or address me by any name, she just asked me some questions then started with the exam. She was nice, but the exam felt rushed, I felt like she was just reading a script to me, and not actually communicating. At the end when she asked if I had any questions, she already had her hand on the door knob like she was ready to leave. It wasn't a terrible experience, the goal of the exam was accomplished, all I wanted was a general exam and Pap smear, and I suppose that truly was all I got. ??

I left my current practice to give Dr. Okasi a try because of their long wait time. My previous doctor's office, Capital Women's, though professional and courteous, is so overbooked that every appointment was never kept and I wasn't seen for up to an hour after my scheduled time. I arrived at Dr. Okasi's office 30 minutes before my scheduled appointment and was seen exactly on time, and actually a few minutes earlier than my appointment! I really appreciate doctors who value their patients' time, so that was a big win for me. Her bedside manner was also 5 stars...very nice and comfortable to speak with. The only thing I would say was a minor turn off is the big sign at the front desk warning customers that if they have any problems at all, they will be charged their deductible or copay...not the friendliest first impression, but meeting Dr. Okasi quickly made up for that.

I love everything about her and her staff. Always friendly, professional and courteous. She is the first OB/GYN that I've had that makes me feel like she personally cares. she is always committed into doing what's best for me and is always clear and knowledgeable. I just love everything about her and I've even told her if I ever have an insurance she doesn't accept I am willing to pay Out-of-Network...( Thank God I haven't had to)!

I don't usually write reviews but I couldn't not this time. I'm 45 yrs of age, have had extremely heavy periods all my life since age 13. Period and going to the obgym dr has always been traumatic for me but this the 1st time it was actually quite different. Extremely different and not expected. I generally don't trust rewinds that are all good but Dr Okasi truly deserves it and today I saw why she has all good reviews. The checking was easy, I became a little disturbed after waiting while 2 people after me were seen b4 me but the Dr. apologized immediately and explained that she had 2 emergencies that threw everything off. She quickly made up for it during my visit as it was like talking with my sister during the visit. She listen addressed ALL my concerns. I didn't feel like just another patient or a number and I got my appointment only 1 day in advance. She let me know all my options and schedule a procedure that i have been trying to have done for the last 4 years for 1 week from today. I've been going the Womens OBGYN in columbia on Guilford Rd who delivered my 4 year old and where it was very hard to get an appointment and it's a revolvingredients door of Drs. I wish I found her sooner. You have to see it for yourself but she my Dr fo LIFE!!!! And won't mind waiting if I have to in the future which I don't think will be an issue.
