Growing up my family exposed me to a very diverse culture. I was raised in London and Los Angeles but travels and short stays all over Europe, Africa, South America and the United States. Traveling is still a great passion of mine. I thoroughly enjoy city life like museums, restaurants, taking long walks sight-seeing. One may see me at a group exercise class lifting weights, stepping or even the occasional Zumba class.

Reviewed on January 29, 2018 Dr. Opitoke was better than I could have hoped in helping us decide whether my father should go on hospice care.
Reviewed on January 23, 2018 We have already recommended Dr. Opitoke to several others.
Reviewed on December 8, 2017 Dr. Opitoke is the most caring, thoughtful doctor I've ever had. I used to dread seeing the doctor, but not any more. He makes me feel good when he talks to me, even if I hadn't been feeling very good before he came into the room. He knows how to take care of my problems, and makes it easy for me to follow his instructions.
