General Information

The most important thing I can do as a doctor is listen carefully to my patients. Only then can we begin to work together as a team to address their concerns and improve their health and well-being. As a family doctor I especially enjoy caring for people within the context of their families and their community. When people are sick, compassion and caring are as important as medicines and procedures. When people are ready to make lifestyle changes, I see myself as a health coach, offering methods and counseling to achieve those goals.

Dr. Okorn is excellent with my mother. She spent a lot of time helping her understand the resuscitation form. Dr. Okorn is very thorough and kind. She is a wonderful doctor!!!

Dr Okorn is great. I always feel like she listens to my concerns and works with me to come up with a treatment plan.

Dr. Okorn is thoughtful, helpful and kind.

I am very pleased with Dr. Okorn's professional care for me and she always listens and answers my questions.

I did feel rushed in some appointments with this provider

Dr. Okorn is great. She always answers all my questions and I always have confidence in her response. She is also direct which is great when it comes to health care questions.

With my allergies and surgical history, Dr Okorn was very personable in discussing these issues with me in a way I could understand. She set my mind at ease when I informed her of my rare trips to see the a Dr on a regular basis.

Look, the doc is great - the whole experience due to the reception lines is just bad. The office staff show zero concern for you having to wait for EVER to check in.

I really, really like Dr. Okorn and I am very comfortable with her. Like i said - perhaps this is just me and I need to be more assertive in getting the time I need vs. worrying about if I'm taking up too much time but I do not think i'm alone in saying that it is clear that the doctors and nurses are rushing to see as many people as possible - even in a non emergency setting and that never makes one feel good.

Dr. Okorn is our family physician and has seen us through two pregnancies and births with her excellent care. She is a fantastic care provider - completely knowledgeable, warm and caring and readily accessible for office appointments or by mychart during off hours. I highly recommend Dr. Okorn!

I love Dr. Okorn, but [...] it's impossible to get an appointment sometimes. [...]

I would only not recommend my doctor because scheduling is painfully difficult with lack of availability.

[...] Dr Okorn has all the aspects of a medical care provided I appreciate. she evaluated my symptons with an Anyletical and thourough approach. Diagnossis was spot on, and i like her as a person.

Dr okorn is awesome! When she learned that my son had been to the ER the previous weekend, she shifted her schedule around so that we could have enough time to discuss the reason for the ER trip in addition to the well child exam.

I am very pleased with Dr. Okorn's treatment and help. She listens to me and any questions I may have.

The visit seemed to be very efficient and quick, however any questions that I had were answered sufficiently. I'm happy to know that my lab results were as expected and current health issues are being managed.

The doctor appropriately sent me to have an ultrasound. However, once the ultrasound results came back I was simply told by a nurse that I have a [...] and I should see a surgeon. I received no call from the doctor explaining the ultrasound results, even though I left a message stating I was very concerned after reading my chart that I had what sounded like a [...]. I never received a call from either Dr. [...] or Dr. Okorn explaining the results, or answering my concerns. I do not think you should post ultrasound results on My Chart without providing patients with an opportunity to get an explanation of the terms. I intend to find a new doctor.

I value the relationship I have with my provider. She understands me, my health, and instills trust in me for the care that I receive.
