About

Bio

I am Nigerian. I completed medical school in The University of Nigeria with Pediatric Residency training completed with The New York City Health and Hospital Corporation; Harlem Hospital Center, an affiliate of Columbia University. I have been in practice for over 20 years and continue to love every minute! We are constantly faced with new challenges in the practice of Pediatric medicine and it is my objective to continually seek out any platform that will help me improve my understanding of the delivery of medical care to our children. I moved to El Paso Texas from New Jersey in 2009 after 15 years of practice in New York City, to actualize my dream of creating a very beautiful and comprehensive Medical Home for children Birth to 21 years. Our medical home; Akai Comprehensive Pediatrics is now over 6 years old and our children love us as much as we love and care for them! Healthtap is an exciting avenue that offers me the opportunity to extend my reach in the service of the children, adolescents and young adults in the same spirit of compassion and excellence in the care provided. The trust placed upon me to care for your children will always be considered a privilege and will not be taken lightly. I welcome you to join our virtual medical home! Be safe and stay healthy!
