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 in 1995. I practiced at Boston Medical Center, the Cleveland Clinic and joined the faculty of Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta in 2006. I am currently an assistant professor of medicine at the Medical College of Georgia.
My wife is an educator, founder and president of a non-profit organization that helps to improve education in Africa. We have two sons in college and a daughter in high school.
The Ambulatory Medicine Department is committed to providing excellent 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 health maintenance and chronic medical problems including hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart failure, coronary artery disease, COPD and asthma.
Regular exercise, healthy eating habits and maintaining a peaceful mind all help me thrive! I swim regularly, play table tennis and walk in the park. I enjoy watching soccer, listening to music, playing the piano and 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.
