Your relationship with your doctor is one that can bring wellbeing and health to you. I define my practice by relationships, not by diseases or ‘cases’.
I graduated medical school from the Medical University of the Americas in West Indies in 2005. I went on to a combined residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin. I built a successful primary care practice in Wisconsin where I lived for the past decade before coming to New York state in August 2017. My practice consisted of families – often spanning multiple generations (great grandparents down to their great grandchildren). I like challenges and will often take on patients with complex medical conditions or difficult-to-diagnose problems.
In addition to my practice, I also do research on viruses and infectious diseases and teach medical students and residents. I enjoy giving back to the community – both locally and internationally. I love to volunteer time at camps or free clinics. I usually make one international medical mission a year.
To me primary care means two things:
- I’d like to be the first doctor you come to when something is wrong, but also when nothing is wrong – just for a well visit.
- When something is wrong that would involve specialty care, I’d love to continue to be a vital link, coordinating the care between and with the other doctors that may get involved.
I grew up all over the world (born in Nigeria, lived in India, the Caribbean, Japan and Panama). I therefore enjoy people of different cultures, languages and lifestyles. I am married, have a daughter in middle school and live in Williamsville. I look forward to becoming a part of Buffalo’s community and providing excellent and comprehensive medical care to families in Western New York and beyond.
