Sylveria O. Olatidoye, MD
I speak: English
My gender: Female
Where I practice
I was born in Manchester, England and moved to Lagos, Nigeria when I was three years old. I completed my primary and secondary education in Nigeria and moved to the United States to attend college.
I chose to become a doctor because I saw the positive impact that several of my physician family members had on my community in Nigeria.
I am married to a cardiologist, and we have been blessed with two children. We have lived in various parts of the U.S., including the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. We decided to make Atlanta our home 10 years ago because we have family in the area.
About my practice
As a member of our Kaiser Permanente Family Practice Department, I see members of all ages, from newborns to our geriatric members. I love the variety of patients that I see as a family practice physician. I enjoy treating patients from the cradle to their golden years. It is a privilege to care for members of the same family and build relationships with them.
I believe in treating the whole person - body, mind and spirit. In my opinion, difficulties in one area affect the other.
I also love teaching medical students and residents.
How I thrive
I start each day with quiet time and 30 minutes on my elliptical machine before I get my children ready for school. I love spending time with my family, and I am soccer mom. My other interests include dancing, reading, gardening and traveling.
I am dedicated to medical missions, with a special focus on Africa. I am involved in several organizations that work with missions both locally and abroad. I am also very active in my church and am involved in children's ministry.
