She can email office policy and fee information and questionaires, and help schedule the initial extended evaluation.

Dr. Oklan literally saved my life for which I am forever grateful. His knowledge of psychiatry and psychopharmacology is excellent. I was a psychiatric nurse in the same county for years and had a good pool of MDs to compare him to. I recommend him unequivocally
i recently went thru a manic-depressive episode, and he went far beyond call of normal duty in response. it was very impressive. good docs are to be treasured, and this one is in that category.
