About

Bio

I am an Internal Medicine physician affiliated with Ben Carson Sr School of Medicine, Babcock University in Nigeria where a new generation of world class physicians are being trained to address global health challenges such as this Coronavirus Pandemic. Despite my interest in training young doctors, my passion is for helping people feel better individually through lifestyle interventions and disease prevention. There is a saying that goes " prevention is better than cure" however, if you already have a chronic disease I can help you manage it. Remember to wash your hands with soap and water several times daily AND practice social distancing ( 4-6 feet apart)!

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
