You’re in good hands if you choose Dr. Oka. From a personal viewpoint, Dr. Oka and the other employees there are passionate about what they do, and they really care about their patients. They remember the people that come in, and the moment you walk into their small, quaint office you’ll be welcomed by the friendly reception. I remember that the day I shadowed Dr. Oka, Lupe welcomed me in and offered me to help myself to anything in their break room. Dr. Oka himself is a really friendly and considerate person, and I appreciate that he took the time to pick a specific day for my job shadow and patiently answer all of my questions when I was there. Moreover, Dr. Oka is professional and well experienced in his field. During my job shadow with Dr. Oka, I watched him effortlessly go through the surgery like he could do it with his eyes closed, and once I had some down time to talk to the other employees there, his assistant told me about how he enjoyed working alongside Dr. Oka as he performed surgeries because it’s fascinating watching Dr. Oka excel at his job. In consultations, Dr. Oka’s explanations are clear and thorough, and takes informed consent very seriously. I myself have had my extractions done by Dr. Oka, and it was an overall quick and smooth process. I get in, knock out, and wake up with the entire thing done feeling like only minutes had passed. I highly recommend Dr. Oka as an oral surgeon. He’s excellent at what he does, and you won’t be disappointed with your time in his office.
