Where I practice
Greetings! I am the daughter of Nigerian immigrants and was born and raised in Southern California. As a child, the glaring health differences that I saw between Nigeria and my hometown inspired me to become a physician, and I feel fortunate to be able to pursue this lifelong dream.
I was born and raised in Highland, California, and then went up to Northern California to complete my bachelor’s degree at Stanford University. I then traveled to the East Coast (and survived several New Jersey winters) to receive my medical degree at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine. After medical school, I returned home to California and completed internal medicine residency at UC Riverside.
About my practice
I am a hospitalist and as such I mainly see members that are sick enough to be in the hospital. I understand that being in the hospital is often a stressful and less-than-pleasant experience. My goal is to work with members to address the issue(s) that brought them into the hospital, provide education, and help maintain systems that will allow them to live happy and healthy lives outside of the hospital. I believe in a holistic approach to good health, which includes mental, spiritual, and physical well-being.
How I thrive
I have a large family, which includes my husband, parents, siblings, and many in-laws as well as many extended family members, and I love spending time with them. My husband and I are big foodies and enjoy searching for and finding great food. I also enjoy traveling, hiking, exercising, and laughing until it hurts.
