Dr Okoe listens very considerate. She puts my needs and concerns as a high priority. I will highly recommend her to anyone and everyone I know. She performed a full hysterectomy on me and cared so much about how I was doing A+++++++++++Doctor

June 13, 2020 10:19 PM

I could not have asked for a better, more down to earth and honest doctor. Dr. Okoe is amazing and such a blessing! I am beyond grateful to have her as my doctor.

May 26, 2020 10:59 AM

Good experience. Only thing is communication about rules & guidelines. Was told different things & made the visit stressful. Doctor was nice, just need her to do a thorough job - check everything.

May 21, 2020 6:44 AM

I love Dr. Okoe. She's the absolute best dr. can always talk to her about anything. I feel like I can trust her. She's awesome.

May 18, 2020 2:24 PM

GREAT EXPERIENCE! she every helpful during entire pregnancy and honestly one of the best doctors I've ever met

May 9, 2020 1:52 AM

love Dr Okoe.My husband and I went together for a prenatal visit. When we left my husband agreed that she was laid back and easy to talk to. He wanted to make sure I would see her again.

March 30, 2020 2:38 PM

amazing!

March 21, 2020 8:00 AM

I adore Dr. Okoe. She is one of the reasons my pregnancy has been so easy.

March 21, 2020 8:00 AM

February 27, 2020 2:39 PM

She is excellent. Converses casual with me also. Does have my best health interest in mind.

February 27, 2020 2:39 PM

Her concerns for me both mentally and physically

February 26, 2020 7:39 AM

Dr. Okoe is the best! She is knowledgeable, yet explains things in a way that the average person can understand. She respects my values and believes and was very sympathetic when I explained a strange situation that had recently happened.

February 24, 2020 6:50 PM

Dr. Okoe and Dr. X are the best!! They are concerned doctors who explain things easily understandable. I ran into Dr. X after seeing Dr. Okoe and he stopped and asked me if everything was ok. absolutely love both of them@

February 22, 2020 9:18 AM

She was terrible. It was my first time and she did not make me comfortable. She just did everything without explaining. She gave me zero answers. She was very rude.

February 22, 2020 9:18 AM

BAD!!!! I will not return. She was very rude.

January 28, 2020 12:43 PM

I like Dr. Okoe, she's very nice, optimistic & funny. When I message her on MY ADVOCATE, she responds right away. I appreciate being able to reach her whenever I need to.

December 31, 2019 4:19 AM

Receptionist was rude. Did not appreciate the manner she used to point out I was late. I was not more than 5-10 minutes late. Especially annoying since the office cancelled two of my prior appointments which is why I picked a time that was harder for me to make. Maybe she should have apologized on behalf of the practice for having to cancel two of my prior appointments and thank me for rescheduling. If she still feels the need to point out people's tardiness she should work on her delivery so it doesn't come across so rude.

December 27, 2019 8:06 AM

Dr. Okoe was very caring, compassionate during my visit. Explained things in an easy to understand manner. Also - Has good sense of humor.

December 23, 2019 2:44 PM

she is a great doctor

December 22, 2019 10:16 AM

Dr Okoe is the best! She is caring and kind. She is always looking out for what is best for me and explains everything in a manner that I can relate to...and always is concerned for my wellbeing.

December 22, 2019 10:16 AM

Dr Oloe is my angel. She virtually saved my life with emergency surgery following hemorrhaging after my hysterectomy which she did not perform. She and I were in touch daily to follow up on my recovery. I couldn't ask for a more caring and compassionate doctor....she is my angel!

December 14, 2019 5:39 AM

During my visit w/Dr. Okoe she left the room to take a phone call (right in the middle of a conversation we were having). Her cell phone was in her pocket. Very unprofessional!

December 14, 2019 5:39 AM

She did not remember that she (met) saw me last December for a medical issue and, did not even ask about it. She also seemed very dismissive with other issues I am currently dealing with.

November 14, 2019 11:00 PM

Dr. OKOE is outstanding. She is a true listener and respects my opinions and requests as well as answering all questions thoroughly.

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

I'm so lucky to have worked and plan on continuing working with this team. the dedication thisteam has for their clients doesn't go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated!

October 24, 2019 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Okoe. She is the most attentive and friendly doctor I know. She really makes me feel like she knows me and has time for me, even if my issue feels small.

October 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe had a student with her for this visit. I consented to her being present. The student actually performed the pap exam and was obviously inexperienced. it was less pleasant than had an experienced doc done the pap but also I know leaning takes time so I don't want to be harsh.

September 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe was very knowledgeable, she took her time and never made me feel rushed. She answered all of my questions & concerns, I felt that she was really listening to me.

September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

she has a great personality and gives information needed that I didn't know

August 26, 2019 7:00 PM

she was great! made me feel at ease!

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe is a very compassionate dr. that cares about her patients. I always feel respected and that I receive the best care possible.

August 14, 2019 7:00 PM

I thank Dr. Jamilah J. Okoe because I think she is very professional and humane. Gave me a correct diagnosis and fast. May God continue giving that capacity THANK YOU.

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

She is a very nice and respectable provider. She always answers any questions I have and explains things I might be confused about. Overall she does a great job and I don't have any complaints.

July 27, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe is brilliant, kind, and empathetic. She talks with me about my health and has prescribed medicine that cured a problem I had before I became her patient. I am very happy to have her as my gynecologist.

July 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe made labor and delivery a memorable and comfortable experience. She was so kind and truly cared about my well being. I am so glad she was my medical provider for this event in my life.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Okoe is the best Dr for me I really appreciate her.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

I thought she was very upbeat, positive and empathetic. I really liked her personality and care.

July 7, 2019 7:00 PM

By far the best experience I've had at a dr.'s office. Would recommend to other people.

June 30, 2019 7:00 PM

My 1st visit here. Excellent provider. Extremely attentive, knowledgeable and caring. Communicated - listened very well and spent as much time as needed.

June 16, 2019 7:00 PM

I love Jamela okoe she is a good doc

June 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe is far above the average Doctor. She is caring and compassionate, patient & understanding. She goes above and beyond a normal doctor.

June 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe is the BEST!!

June 9, 2019 7:00 PM

This physician was very thorough with great bedside manner. I trust her judgment in my best interests as my provider.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

This was my first visit with Dr.Okoe and I felt very comfortable with her and her staff. I will be following up with her in 2 weeks after completion of some testing.

April 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Overall it was great. She was everyting I was hoping for. I am still waiting on my ultrasound results which has been a week. Otherwise I'M HAPPY.

April 9, 2019 7:00 PM

The service from the Specialist is good.

March 19, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe is very compassionate and understanding she takes her time and makes sure you understand what she is talking about.

March 1, 2019 6:00 PM

I was very pleased with Dr. Okoe. She was very easy to talk to and was gentle during the exam.

February 25, 2019 6:00 PM

She was absolutely fantastic, knowledgeable, fun, respectful, can't say enough good things about her. Made my routine GYN visit a pleasure, which is not easy to do!!!

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

I had a procedure that day, was kind of nervous - but all went smooth and was very happy with the Dr. Okoe & her assistants, they didn't make me feel an undergoing a procedure. Thank you.

February 17, 2019 6:00 PM

this was my first time visit and I was statisfied .

February 11, 2019 6:00 PM

She was very nice and polite she explained everything in a way that I understood.

February 5, 2019 6:00 PM

It was very good. Dr. Okoe is very good and I was pleased.

January 31, 2019 6:00 PM

Very good.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

This was my initial visit with Dr. Okoe and she was very friendly and professional. She answered all of my questions and I was treated like a partner in my health care. I felt valued as a patient and did not feel rushed or hurried. I thought the visit went well and am very happy with my new doctor.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Very happy with the doctor

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

I did not meet with Dr. Okoe on this date because the system was down. I waited over an hour before I had to leave for work. The lovely staff was able to reschedule my appointment to 12/18/18. My only suggestion would be to have the staff inform patients of this when they check in.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

I was very disappointed in Dr. Okoe's bedside manner from my delivery & forward. I will not continue seeing her as my OBGYN.

January 19, 2019 6:00 PM

one of the best experiences I've had going to a new Doctor

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Okoe is a wonderful doctor. she is caring, patient, understanding and listens to my concerns. I'm very grateful to have found her and her team.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Okoe is a very pleasant doctor. You can tell that she really cares about her patients and what's best for them and their well being.

December 16, 2018 6:00 PM

I got a call about my report from the biopsy but I never got a call from scheduler about D&C. I called asking them to call this week of 12-10 and still haven't heard -

November 19, 2018 6:00 PM

I just moved back to the area from Az & needed to see a gynecologist. My primary Dr referred me to Dr Okoe. She was wonderful & knowledgable & helpto ease my anxiety about problem I'm experiencing. I would highly recommend her.

October 26, 2018 7:00 PM

loved this Doctor and already recommended her to coworkers. she was very personable and puts you at ease.

September 30, 2018 7:00 PM

September 12, 2018 7:00 PM

Very professional, knowledgeable and nice dr. will definitely keep Okoe as primary gynecologist.

September 12, 2018 7:00 PM

June 22, 2018 7:00 PM

we are having our first baby and Dr Okoe has been a God send to my husband and I. Dr Okoe has helped us tremendously in navigating the ups and downs of a somewhat complicated pregnancy! Thank you Dr Okoe for all you do!!!

June 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Okoe did a very good job of describing my ultrasound results and possible things that may be wrong and I really appreciated that. She also printed off some info for me on possible conditions.

June 12, 2018 7:00 PM

I saw Dr. Okoe for the 1st time for a painful problem, referred by X. Dr. Okoe was excellent. Will continue to be my doctor. X is also awesome!

May 4, 2018 7:00 PM

This provider is amazing on every aspect of care. From beginning to end!

April 16, 2018 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Okoe, she is the best!

March 29, 2018 7:00 PM

I was referred to Dr. OKOE by my internist nurse practitioner for a post menopausal gynecological issue. Dr. Okoe had reviewed my history thoroughly, interviewed me thoroughly and truly listened and respected my knowledge, opinions, and views. She is highly competent, compassionate, respectful, easy to communicate with. I will continue in her practice. The receptionists & medical assistants were kind, efficient & caring.

February 19, 2018 6:00 PM

I absolutley Love Dr.Okoe and her nurses. She is my OBGYN and I am currently pregnant. They always ask many relevant questions and seem to really care about me and my growing child and family. I had the opportunity to switch to a closer provider but I could not imagine going through this pregnancy without her and those nurses! I recommend her to everyone I know.

January 21, 2018 6:00 PM

she is the best Dr I have seen in a while. she really listens and understands, while genuinely caring

January 21, 2018 6:00 PM

I enjoy mine and her conversations. Shes real, funny and compassionate. I always want to be seen by her. She figured out what was wrong with me in one visit then the 3 other dr's Ive seen in 4 years. I adore her and her staff!

January 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr.Okoe was wonderful. I was looking for a second opinion and looking for a new permanent doctor. I liked her so much I will be switching to have her as my regular OB/GYN.

January 5, 2018 6:00 PM

My provider listened carefully to my concerns.
