Specialties

Dr. John H Dokko has the following 2 specialties

  • Nephrology

    A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
    A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Lovely...

My husband has been quite ill and has seen Dr. Dokko more than once. I have been with him. The good doctor has spent ample time with us, answered all our questions and been quite supportive. While I have always preferred an M.D. for my own reasons, Dr. Dokko seems quite knowledgeable and has been more than helpful.

Arrogant doctor who does not listen to his patients. I mentioned my symptoms and he simply dismissed my concerns.

Arrogance at its best...

Arrogant and not very compassionate. I highly recommend you do your research and stay away from Dr. Dokko. He acts like he is better than you makes sure he lets you know it. BTW - He is not a good doctor either. Read his online ratings.

Shocked

After three days of a very painful sore throat, high fever, all over body pain, and very pain neck, I went to see Dr. Dokko, He is in the same practice with my internist, who was off that day. Dr. Dokko put me on Amoxicillin without doing any sort of strep test. He looked in my throat and said it was a "little red." When I complained of an excruciatingly sore neck, he examined it and told me I must have pulled a muscle at the gym, and told me to put a heating pad on it. With 102 fever? He also gave me a prescription for Skelaxin, a muscle relaxer. I in fact had hugely swollen glands. He then recommended taking a probiotic pill from the drugstore. I suggested eating yogurt instead. He shrugged, with no reply. When it was time to submit my Rx to a pharmacy, I asked him for the name and hours of the pharmacy located on the SMG campus. He had no idea. I am 56, and have yet to find a doctor who is unable to accurately diagnose a strep throat. He just might be the worst doctor I have ever seen. Would someone at SMG please evaluate this guy?
