Dr. Okonkwa was great, although my outcome was left some to be desired, I understand its on my bodies end and not his. He can't fix the entire world. His bedside manner was phenomenal and he seemed to have vested interest in my complaints.

Positively excellent in every category of my experience a Presbyterian Neurological Department

Dr. O is amazing. He is not only a talented and skilled surgeon, but he is also an outstanding human being. I have never felt a doctor cared for me personally more than Dr. O. Because he cares so much it is easy to trust him and his recommendations. I've seen a lot of doctors and never have a had a doctor as invested in me and my care as Dr. O.

I had read about this provider's expertise and specialty on line. I believed that I needed a solid diagnosis on where I stood now, after having several changes made

They were all great.

I saw the PA first, she was very knowledgeable and I thought she was a doctor. Dr. Okonkwo confirmed everything that she had told my wife and I. I am very confident in what the doctor told us. I will be having more tests and will be completely comfortable if I have to have surgery at Presby with Dr. O. and his team.

Dr. Okonkwo is a very caring and informative doctor. I am so glad my doctor here in Altoona referred me to him. If my problem gets to the point that I need more care from him, I gladly put my trust in his hands.
