Dr. Okoli always makes you feel as comfortable as possible. He also explains all your choices and treatments in terms YOU can understand...wether it’s pregnancy or birth control you are there for. Also he takes the time to answer your questionswhich nowadays is a rarity when it comes to doctors. Other than the wait time I have no complaints. Staff was courteous and friendly and the office, waiting room, restrooms and exam rooms were very clean.

I was asked to dress in a gown for my exam, as soon as I had the gown on the Dr. flung the door open without knocking. I received my annual exam and a pregnancy test this visit. I was notgiven a warning on what to expect of the exam and was told to lie down and he proceeded to swab me very roughly without any heads up. I was his last appointment of the day and was seen by him for less then 5 minutes and asked to come back in two weeks even though I am roughly 2 1/2 months pregnant. He seemed nice, but maybe too eager to leave and the exam was very rushed.

I read reviews from several sites and many individuals rated this provider poorly based on the office staff. I will have to say that the doctor has excellent bedside manner! He is very polite, friendly, and most importantly professional. Thestaff was nice and attentive. I think the only thing that I wish was different was the time it took to be seen, however this could have largely been due to the fact that I was a new patient and had to fill out paperwork. Overall, I believe that this provider is a professional individual that has a passion for women’s health. I will be going back for my annual exam and have already scheduled my appointment for the next one.

Dr. Okoli called me baby or honey. I don’t remember which one right now. He also seemed to imply that I didn’t understand how my body worked. His offfice also didn’t call me when my lab work came in. I hadto call them to get them to fill my prescriptions.

He should not be able to get clients on zoc . He is her rude and doesn't know how to communicate with his patients. It took four tries to get a swab for pap/smear. He was very rough and insensitive causingme to bleed. The worst experience so far. He will ignore you. He would not listen to anything you have to say. He would make you wait. No privacy wal in and out the room .

I won’t be coming back. I have seen dr. Okoli for many reasons and have not had one good visit. My wait is always over 2 hours. I have never given a bad review but I was tempted to after drivingan hour to see him twice in one week and not being helped at all or getting any answers. The second time this week I didn’t even get to see him because the wait was 2 hours and I had to go to work.

Dr Okoli was RUDE, I tried explaining to him what symptoms I was experiencing and what the hospital had previously told me but he was just so unprofessional and rude all because he believes that I was "self diagnosing" myself butI was just trying to explain my health issues. I will NEVER go to back to his office nor will I ever refer anyone to him!

I really liked how thorough he was. I didnt feel rushed or like he didnt care. Im pleased with this Dr. On another note, i do feel that when they call the patients to confirm the appt they should provide themwith the new addreas or at least ask if they know where the office is located to prevent any mix up.

I had severe menstrual bleeding that would not stop and needed to be seen asap because I was scared. My GP couldn't see anyone for over a week, but I was able to get a same-day appointment at FACOG. Everyone saidthis place is great and the doctor is wonderful, but I had such a terrible experience, I haven't been able to work up the courage to go get my annual exam since. Dr. Okoli seemed bored at the consultation, talking to everyone but me. He refused to listen when I said I didn't need another ultrasound because I had the from one I had the previous week and just ordered one anyway. I even said my insurance wouldn't pay for it, but he acted as if I was invisible. Then he left the room, having ignored me. Due to the amount of bleeding I was experiencing, I was a bloody mess and left to clean myself up with only a few tissues provided. I left the practice in tears because I felt as if I was just tossed aside and not taken seriously.

Office staff was terrible. The surgery was not on the schedule when they said it was. Had to go to hospital to pre-admit and took 2 hours to get the fax request and get all the pre-admit myself or would nothave had surgery. Calling staff would never return my calls and the refund they owed me took four months and lots of calls.

The office did not have any of my information even though I filled everything out online. The other person in the waiting room told me she'd been waiting for over an hour. The office was not very clean or sanitary (therewere soda bottles and other trash on the floor of the waiting room, there was no toilet paper on the roll in the bathroom, there were no sanitary wipes to use after giving a urine sample or after the pap). Everyone was friendly, but the Doctor only spent 5 minutes in the room with me and was on the phone for 2 of those minutes. The office is very conveniently located for me, but I can't imagine using them for the rest of my OBGYN care.

The office was cramped stuffy and a bit scary. The nurses were short & somewhat rude. I had an appointment at 3 but wasn't called until 330. Blood pressure and weight was taken then another wait. I didn't see the doctoruntil 445. It was a brief 20 questions game then he was gone. Looking for another doctor ASAP!

If I could give this establishment no stars I would. I cannot begin to explain the heartache and trouble that they put me through. I mentioned to the Doctor that I was experiencing extreme side effects from the birth control thatthey placed me on; his response was to push through it for another 3 months and see if my body adapts to it. I have never been told by a Doctor that I would have to push through the pain and suffering of birth control ever. It has been my experience with other practitioners that when I decide I no longer want to be on that form of birth control, they switch me to something else that may agree with me and my body more. This being said I was also waiting on results from a biopsy, since they told me I may have cancer, and was guaranteed a call back no matter what. I worked at a clinical office whose hours of business mirrored this offices, so it was hard for me to find time to be able to come in. I verified, verbally, after my biopsy that I would get a call back about the results. After 3 months of calling and trying to find out my results, I was finally told I had to schedule an appointment with the Doctor to be told anything. When I went in for the appointment (which was scheduled at 9:15am and I wasn't seen by a doctor till close to 11:30am) I was told that I was silly for even thinking that I would be called by the Doctor when there was nothing wrong. My biopsy was negative and I should have known that by the fact that they never reached out to me about it. I was appalled and left without making any further appointments. I guess I should have known when the Doctor was willing to answer phone calls in the middle of both my first appointment and my biopsy, without even walking out of the room or stopping the procedure, I should have known that I was in trouble. I will never be returning and I hope that anyone with sense never even steps foot in this horrid place.

When I got to the office the appearance was not appealing. Then the waiting room was jam packed. The office staff did not greet when I arrived. All you do is sign in and sit down and wait. After about 30minutes I was called back but only took my weight and blood pressure then told to sit back in the waiting room. There was a second waiting room full in the back as well. Took about another hour to be seen by the doctor which only took about 10 minutes for the actual visit with the doctor. Not Goin back to this office and wouldn't recommend unless you live close to that side of town.
