Doctor Okubadejo is professional and knowledgeable- seemed empathetic considering the severe amount of pain I was in and explained nexts steps clearly - couldn’t get into any detail since I need an MRI first but felt comfortable that Dr Okubadejoseemed knowledgable and will continue my treatment here. Front desk staff Melina also very helpful and made the visit easier for me by getting me in for last minute X-rays before I saw the doctor all on the same day, which given the urgency of the pain I was in, I very much appreciated that. Would recommend.

I really respect Dr. Okubadejo, he has really helped me. However, he is only in the Jersey City office on Tuesday and so I have to use my lunch hour to see him, which is fine except I wasn't seen untilover an hour after my scheduled appointment.therefore I had to use unpaid time from work and also look bad to my employer. A couple minutes delay is acceptable, 60 plus minutes is not.

Friendly, very professional, caring, and explained in detail what test I have to get done in order to determine if surgery is needed or not. I have faith & trust any decision Dr. Okubadejo will give me. After I get betterwith my neck, then he will start treating me for my lower back. My husband & I left his office with such a relief because finally I found the right doctor that is willing to help me with my neck & back problems.
