My specialty: Family Medicine
All Kaiser Permanente Physicians and Surgeons
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients.
I was born and raised in Nigeria. The poor health care in my native country challenged and motivated me to pursue a career in medicine, and I was awarded a scholarship by the Nigerian government to do so. I came to the United States in 1976 and completed a bachelor’s degree in chemistry at Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon, followed by a master’s degree at Oregon State University. From there I completed a four-year medical education program at Oklahoma State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa; an internship in Athens, Ohio; and a family medicine residency at Bethesda Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. I joined Kaiser Permanente NW in 1989 and have not regretted that decision.
I put my heart and soul into the practice of medicine. We providers must earn the trust of our patients. They know when we care and when we don't. I love people, and I still enjoy patient care. As a family physician here at Kaiser Permanente, I provide a broad spectrum of care for our members. KP family physicians enjoy great support from the specialists on staff, which helps to ease the burden in the management of complicated cases.
I am a Christian by faith, and I do my best to live by example. I am married with three grown boys and a daughter. We are a soccer family. I am also the vice president of a non-profit organization called Glad Tidings Ministries. Over the years, we have done a lot of charitable work in the southern part of Nigeria, providing free medical care, poultry and fish farming, economic empowerment through micro-loan programs, and clean water via borehole wells.
