GREAT DOCTOR AND PRACTICE!

I recently went to Dr. O for treatment of a sports injury. She and her partners have advanced practices (including stem cell therapy) that avoid surgery. I am finally pain-free after minimal treatments! Thank you, Dr. O!

Follow up is poor

I at first thought she was very compassionate and attentive, then on subsequent visits I noted that she doesn't follow through on phone calls she is supposed to make. I think that she is not the doctor for me, although she does appear very knowledgable, but I prefer a steadier and more focused doctor.

One Star

I went to her for botox for my neck and upper back. Initially I thought she was wonderful - she listened to me, seemed to understand my pain syndrome. Iniitally, the botox injections were very helpful. Subsequent botox injections were not only not helpful, but left me weak (which turned out to be permant) and with temporary difficulty swallowing. On subsequent visits, Dr. Okoronkwo did a 360 degre turn - she yelled at me that I was non compliant - I had no idea what she was talking. I did everything she told me to do - she never gave me any follow-up instructions other than repeat botox in 3 months. I initially thought she had mixed me up with another patient who was non compliant but as I continued to see her, I realized that she is a little crazy - at times very nice and at other times totally accusatory and argumentative. She did not want to hear about the side effects and denied that anything she could have done could have caused permanant weakness of the areas she treated or that it could have caused swallowing difficulties. The swallowing difficulties which occurred after the botox were pretty dramatic - I could not have made them up or imagined it.

Highly knowledgeable physician. Confident in her diagnosis and treatments. Followed up with her regulary with excellent results. Very compassionate, respectful and goes out of her way to help. Always looked forward to seeing her. Didn't care much for the office staff where she works, but that's a small price to pay to be treated by this doctor.
