About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I chose to pursue a career in medicine because of my early exposure to medicine from my mother during my formative years in Nigeria. I quickly realized how fulfilling it is to be able to help other humans during a time when they are so vulnerable. I chose dermatology because it afforded me the opportunity to see a wide range of skin conditions and also perform procedures in a clinic setting.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I want my patients to know that I specialize in both general and cosmetic dermatology. I'm extremely passionate about my job, and I'm very skilled in treating all skin types including skin of color. My services will include treating acne, psoriasis, rosacea, skin cancer, hair loss and complex dermatology.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

During my spare time, I read, cook, drink tea (very enthusiastic about green tea), exercise and travel with my husband.
