About me

I was born and raised in Tallahassee, Fla., but have lived all along the East Coast for my studies. I attended Duke University for my undergraduate degree and loved the Blue Devil experience. I then spent a year at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York as a sports medicine research assistant. This solidified my desire to become an orthopedic surgeon, which had been sparked at age 14 when I tore my ACL.

I was first introduced to Atlanta as a student at Morehouse School of Medicine, where I was trained in both the technical and compassionate art of medicine. I traveled to Yale New Haven Hospital for my orthopedic surgical training, and I subspecialized in hand and upper extremity at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital, where traumatic injuries were prevalent.

About my practice

My practice is primarily an orthopedic hand surgery practice. I enjoy taking care of members with concerns involving their fingers, wrist and elbow. I emphasize patient education and will discuss the reasons for every treatment plan, whether that includes surgical intervention or non-operative treatment. I am excited about the opportunity to help the members of Kaiser Permanente.

How I thrive

I thrive by taking time to relax and connect with family and friends. I am a true foodie and enjoy exploring the restaurants in Atlanta. As the daughter of a Nigerian father and Guyanese mother, I have an appreciation for different cultures, which has led to a love of traveling. This love has led me to Europe, Australia and the Caribbean, and I continue to look forward to seeing many more countries. I have also become involved in international medical volunteering trips to both Guyana and Haiti, and I plan to continue this as a part of my practice.

If no plan types are listed, the facility is available for all plan types.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.
