Do not be fooled her cheerful disposition. I have been a patient of Doc Okasi for over a year. I suffer from severe uterine fibroids and she agreed to perform a myomectomy last year. I did not pass the medical clearanceso I was unable to receive the surgery. Fast forward to this year. I return to her to try to get the procedure done again, pass the medical clearance this time and she cancels my procedure the day before. Her claim was that she canceled for spiritual reasons because she thought that I would back out of the surgery like I did last year. I never backed out, I was not medically cleared. Not only did she cancel my surgery, but she told me that she could be seeing patients as opposed to performing surgery. She offered to send my medical records to the doctor of my choice. Mind you, this is all done the day before my surgery. When I confronted her, she told me that she would pray on it. Do not trust her, she is only worried about money and she basically penalized me for not passing the medical clearance in order to receive the first surgery. She spoke to me as if I had chosen not to get the surgery, which tells me that she doesn’t read up on a patients medical tests or history. She told me that she looks bad when patients don’t show up so she canceled my surgery just in case I didn’t show up. She is a wolf in sheeps clothing and only worried about a dollar. Not her patients. She did not give me adequate time to find another doctor nor did she try to refer me to another surgeon once she canceled my surgery for “spiritual reasons” I would NEVER allow her to treat me because her personal opinion outweighs her medical ethics. I do not trust her.

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.

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. ??
