"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. But aside from his fine skills, his attentive and caring manner."

"I consider myself very lucky to have been referred to Dr. Okolo for my medical issue. He arrived at Lennox Hill seven weeks before I needed his care. 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."
