Personal Information
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.

Dr. Opitoke was better than I could have hoped in helping us decide whether my father should go on hospice care.

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.
