Appointment was timely. The Doctor listened and made me a part of the solution. I am having a very positive experience with this doctor. I would recommend him. The staff was very helpful and responded the day I called with all the informtion I needed to obtain my first appointment.
Dr. Oklan is very responsive and often is available to see new patients within a few days if necessary. His office manager, Jane Howard (510-339-0405) is a gem and very helpful. She can email office policy and fee information and questionaires, and help schedule the initial extended evaluation. Dr. Oklan is a compassionate and experienced adult, adolescent and child psychiatrist, specializing in mood and anxiety disorders and ADHD, as well as diagnostic evaluations psychopharmacology and psychotherapy. He is able to serve as sole treating psychiatrist, or work in collaboration with outside therapists, or with the psychiatric nurse/cognitive behavioral nurse in his office.He is not a provider for any insurance panels, MediCare or MediCal, but PPO's will reimburse at non participating provider rates, HMO's often are willing to authorize Single Case Agreements if necessary.

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
