Family Nurse Practitioner, Nurse Practitioner

Professional statement

As a professional nurse leader, one of my objectives is to provide and implement effective evidence-based nursing and advance clinical judgment to assess, design, deliver, and evaluate evidence-based care of individuals with complex health and illnesses. Having attained a doctorate degree combined with my passion for teaching, I have decided to utilize my clinical skill to accentuate the concept of prevention and health promotion activities that will improve the health of the populations and positively impact patients’ outcomes. It is my desire to establish various family practice centers to improve healthcare access. It is also my goal to help students who are aspiring to be professional nurses acquire clinical sites for hands on education and realistic experience through direct patient care. Such students will be able to use acquired knowledge and skills to analyze intricate clinical and organizational issues that will facilitate collaborative interdisciplinary team functioning in clinical or educational environments.

This place is not run professionally at all. I got tests done and had to chase them to get the results. They don't follow up, don't know how to draw blood. I will not be going back there for sure and do not recommend it.

This office is very unprofessional. The doctor confronted the receptionist about calling her by her first name. The med assistant came in the lobby and told me the doctor was writing me a prescription in front of 3 patients in thewaiting area... on top of that I didn’t know why she was writing me a prescription she didn’t give me any directions on taking the meds.. this is an awful office.. it needs to be shut down... and the office isn’t sanitary I will not return there again.

The entrance to clinic was unmarked and around the back of the building. The clinic itself was very dirty - there were blood and urine samples laying around and bugs crawling across the floor.

This doctor's office was very unprofessional. During the visit I got a blood test but the student assistant didn't use gloves! Then they poked around my arm for the longest to find a vein. Usually the patient is asked permission beforehaving students provide them services. Overall, I won't recommend. There are better facilities and medical staff out there to visit.

Overall, this was a pretty terrible doctors experience. I was pretty sure I had the flu- so they ran a flu and strep test. It was a Thursday afternoon and they told me they would get the flu test back onMonday. That seemed crazy to me because I've seen places that do the flu test in 20 minutes. They said the strep test would be a few days. I called on Monday asking for my results from the flu test. They told me that they didn't have that information and they would get back to me AT THE END OF THE WEEK! Why did I even get a flu test if it would take that long? They never called me to give me the my results of either test. They also did not report to my insurance that I paid a copay- so I got charged a lot of money for the lab results- of the tests I never saw the result to. I just called to talk about this and they said they couldn't help me because they close in 1 minute and I should just call back. They did offer me pizza while I was there- but I had the flu so I didn't have an appetite. I wish I had eaten the pizza because that would have been the only good thing about this office.

I loved Deborah, the girl that prepped me wasn't my favorite. She couldnt keep it straight what she'd chexked and what she didnt check, also she stabbed me a few times looking for a vein to draw blood and left mewith a badly bruised arm (I dont bruise easily) and I eventually had to wait for Deborah to draw my blood.

I found that Dr. Okonofua was a good and caring doctor, but her office was not very well run. I had trouble with the very simplest things, like having authorizations faxed to specialists, receiving lab results, and understanding why I wasbeing asked to come in for appointments. The DC and MD office were not good at coordinating, either.

She was running late. Life happens. Wasn't to happy about the wait. The paperwork and insurance verification process could've been a lot smoother. But everyone was nice and the Doctor was efficient and straight to the point. I got more donewith her in one visit than 3 visits with Urgent Care MedStar Facility in Hyattsville so my visit was well worth the wait. If you don't mind the wait its worth the visit.

Mrs. Deborah was an absolute pleasant suprise. While i came in just for womens wellness exam she addressed all my past medical history and read over my past medica records i brought. While a womens exam is one of the mostdreaded things she made it as pleasant as possible. Her office is a good example of dont judge the book by its cover. Im going to request her to be my PCP as well as she seems to really care about the whole person.

The most comprehensive visit I ever had. Dr. Deborah is friendly, funny, easy to talk to, and explains procedures thoroughly and the reasons for them. I normally feel rushed with other doctors, but Dr. Deborah took her time to make sureall my questions were addressed. Jane the NP and Jocelyn the MA were super friendly as well! The only downsides were that the office is not up to date and you will need to drop off your prescription, but the place is very cozy!

I love ?? her she is very understanding with everything I had going on with my health and was very familiar with all my illnesses. I would definitely keep her as my PCP and her staff was very polite as wellas helpfull. I have never received this kind of care management in my life. Needless to say I'm very satisfied with my visit. Although I felt miserable she made me feel at ease and smile which is hard to do when I'm sick. She is a god sent I would definitely recommend her to anyone that needs a great doctor. Thanks GW ER for referring me to her practice.
