Care Philosophy

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!Read more

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Oyelese to anyone! After losing child and having miscarriages, I went to his practice because I needed a high-risk doctor and he gave me the best care and always made me feel comfortable. He also eased my mind after I had bleeding in my first trimester with my daughter (now nine) explaining to me that it's normal and not to worry. He's the most humble AND experienced doctor I've ever met.

Dr O is an excellent physician, today we are happy parents thanks to him. He is caring, compassionate, has in depth knowledge and excels in his field. And I say this because he took his time explaining my condition, he didn't promise me a miracle but he promised to do his best which he delivered. He really cared for me infact he gave me his contact number and regularly kept in touch with me throughout my pregnancy. One feels this isn't just a job for him but a calling. All we can say is thank u.

Dr. Oyelese wasn't my direct doctor for the condition I had. I happen to get him as the doctor on call when I had a question. My fetal son was diagnosed with a very serious condition and they didn't expect him to live. Dr. Oyelese helped me through that excessively difficult time. He kept following up with me my whole pregnancy through the birth of my healthy baby boy. He is kind, compassionate, detailed, and driven. He is incredible and a true healer.
Roselle, NJ |
Dr. Oyelesi is probably one of the best doctors I have ever been to. He's upbeat, very positive and extremely thorough. I had seen several doctors in the same practice and many doctors through my complicated pregnancy and all pale in comparison to him. He simply has a higher bar of excellence than other doctors. I think it is because he recognizes the high importance of both listening to and educating the patient. I wish other doctors would take a page out of his book!
