As a child, I knew I wanted to be a physician. I graduated from Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Nigeria in 1986. I immigrated to the U.S. in 1992 and completed my internal medicine residency at Interfaith Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. I have practiced at Boston Medical Center, the Cleveland Clinic and joined the faculty of Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta in 2006, where I am currently an adjunct assistant professor of medicine. My wife is the founder and president of a non-profit organization that helps to improve education in Africa. We have one son in college, another son in high school and a daughter in elementary school.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
The Ambulatory Medicine Department is committed to providing high-quality primary and urgent care services to our members, and I am privileged to work with colleagues who share this commitment. My philosophy of care is that patient education and motivation empowers members to make the best possible decisions about their health care. The physician-patient relationship is critical to achieving the best possible outcomes for staying healthy and for the common medical conditions that I treat including hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart failure, coronary artery disease, COPD and asthma.
Cómo vivo bien
Regular exercise, healthy eating habits and maintaining a peaceful mind all help me thrive! I play soccer, table tennis and walk in the park. I listen to music, play the piano and enjoy listening to my sons play the guitar and piano. I serve on the Community Development Corporation of my church and participate in the annual Roswell Day of Hope as a medical volunteer.
