Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web oage. My name is Dr. Azinge. I'm glad to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you and share information about myself. It's very important to me that you feel comfortable with your child's personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I grew up in Nigeria. As a young girl, my interest in medicine began because my two older siblings were in the medical field, and I so wanted to do everything they did! Going through medical school in Nigeria, the responsibility of how much there was to do to improve access to healthcare in Nigeria began to hit me. But as I have progressed in my professional life, I have began to realize that my day-to-day practice is my way of assisting others, lending a listening ear and making a difference in another person’s life. I now have four children of my own. This keeps my husband and I busy so whatever free time we have is spent between soccer practice and soccer games!
About my practice
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes; it is a privilege to help patients understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit, and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy family outings with the children to the beach or to games, I volunteer at my children's school when I find the time. More than anything, I enjoy quiet family time at home.
