Dr Okai is a new Physician to me. A prior MS Neurologist I had seen was almost 20 years then he died and I had to select another that I saw two horrible years - he didn\'t seem to care, but Dr. Okai seems to be one that I could do my next 20 years with. She is caring and concerned, she listens. She is innovative and thinks outside the box and customizes my care and I like it. We kinda got off to a rough start with responding to the portal but we are on the right track now and I think (even though I have a choice) I will definitely keep her.

Dr. Okai has been treating me for Multiple Sclerosis for 8 years. She has been very patient with me as I navigated this difficult diagnosis, and waded through the barrage of information online. With respect and curtesy, care and concern, she has explained everything I needed to know without making me feel like I was wasting her time or bothering her. She has seen me through some very scary times, and has always had my best interests and best possible care and future outcomes in mind, while at the same time respecting my desires in terms of my own assessment of quality of life. I recommend her to anyone I meet who has MS, because I think she is the best doctor. Period.

very easy to talk to when discussing MS. I\'ve had the diagnosis for a little over one year and Dr Okai is patient with me to find the right words and she explains the treatment in a way I can understand.
