About

Bio

Hello! My name is Dr. Dora Obi Chizea, and I am an Internist and Board Certified in Anti-Aging Medicine. I am interested in providing both corrective and preventative health-care services for adults and matured people. I often present at Health Fairs and the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. I believe that patients should be proactive in their health, and I believe in the importance of patient education. In my free time, I love reading and writing poetry. I look forward to meeting with you!
