I believe my work is a calling, rather than a "job". I do my utmost to give every patient the very best care that can be provided. Furthermore, I promise to treat you with compassion, patience, and understanding. I try to treat every single patient the way I would want to be treated. I promise to treat you the same way I would treat my own wife, sister, or mother. In order to provide the very best care, I have undergone a lot of training, more than most physicians in our specialty. Going through a high risk pregnancy can often be an extremely scary time for the patient and for those close to her. However, these pregnancies can have good outcomes if the patient is looked after by a competent, compassionate physician. My philsophy has always been to care for the patient with the patient being an equal partner in decision making. In helping you make the best decisions, I will provide you with honest, medically sound information. It is a privilege to care for you!
I graduated in 1986 from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria, at the time considered the preeminent medical school in Africa. After undergoing training in ObGyn and practicing in Nigeria, I moved to London, England in 1992. I retrained in England and practiced there. I was fortunate to train and work under Professor Stuart Campbell, internationally known as the father of obstetrical ultrasound, and a pioneer in the field of fetal medicine. It was working with Professor Campbell that stimulated me to pursue a career in maternal fetal medicine. It was during this period at the world famous St. George's Hospital in London that I became interested in academic medicine and research. In London, I was fortunate to work closely with such international giants as Dr. Yves Ville, Dr. Stuart Stanton, Christoph Lees, Tom Bourne, Abdul Sultan, Austin Ugwumadu, Ranee Thakar and Austin Ugwumadu.
In 1999, I moved to Washington DC, where I did my residency at Georgetown University Hospital. Following completion of my residency, I moved to the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School where I did my fellowship under Dr. John Smulian and Anthony Vintzileos, both giants in the field of maternal fetal medicine.
Upon completion of my fellowship at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, I was asked to join the faculty as an Assistant Professor. A few years later, I was promoted to Associate Professor. From 2010 to 2014, I was at the Jersey Shore University Medical Center, where in 2013, I was appointed Director of Maternal Fetal Medicine. In October 2014, I was recruited to Atlantic Health System at the Morristown Medical Center, where I currently am a perinatologist.
I have authored over 100 research papers, abstracts and book chapters. I am a reviewer for over 25 of the leading journals in obstetrics.
I am also an award-winning photographer, a musician, and music producer.
