About Dr. J. Okerbloom

When a family member was diagnosed with cancer, medical student John Okerbloom knew the direction his future would take. Today, Dr. Okerbloom treats patients with the same concern he has for his own family.

A graduate of the University of Iowa College of Medicine, he also completed a residency in internal medicine with the university.

He completed his studies in oncology (the study of tumors) with fellowships at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines and the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Dr. Okerbloom is board-certified in internal medicine and medical oncology.  He has authored several articles for professional journals.

His free time is devoted to his family.

Dr. Okerbloom's dedication to his patients goes beyond the Hippocratic oath that calls for the utmost respect for human life and patient dignity.

No one should have to suffer needlessly, he said. No one should have to face illness alone. Our staff will be a family away from home for all who come to us.
