"Dr. Okolo performed an EMR on me. He removed a large mass in my colon - the size 7 cm. He was able to remove the very large mass even under less than ideal conditions given the fact that the previous nights prep was very poor. I am very grateful for Dr. Okloro's skills.

I first met him in the outpatient unit for an endoscopy. He visited me twice before the procedure, after the procedure as I was waking up and again met with me and my family. Excellent rapport and clinical skills. You are blessed to have him on your staff."
