Dr. Okwara was a great listener and made every effort to explain things to me, answer my questions, gently correct my misunderstandings, and protect my privacy and health (ie from coronavirus).

because of the masks it was hard for me to know if the doc was understanding my problem. It took a while for both of us to get on the same page. when we did then the appt went well.
