As a native Houstonian, It has been a long time goal of his to return home and provide outstanding medical care to the community that has given him so much. Dr. Agbetoba's approach to patient care involves treating and caring for the 'person' and not just the 'disease'. Each patient is unique, regardless of how simple or complex the problem may be and it is imperative that the clinician's approach embodies this philosophy.
