About Me

My philosophy of care is undergirded by compassion, honesty, transparency and shared decision-making with the patient. I believe our patients choose us -- we do not choose them. So each time I meet a new patient, I make an attempt to know them and understand what is important to them so that we can work together to best care for them and craft a personalized, comprehensive and compassionate care plan.

Board-certified in internal medicine, hematology and oncology, I am trained to take care of patients who have a variety of cancerous and non-cancerous blood disorders -- specifically those needing blood and marrow transplantation and cellular therapies including CAR T-cell therapy.

I attended medical school at Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Nigeria graduating on the Dean's Honors list. I then completed Internal Medicine Residency training at Interfaith Medical Center followed by Hematology/Oncology training at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University, both in Brooklyn, NY. I completed training in Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Cellular Therapy at Stanford University, Stanford, CA.

My research interests are in improving allo-transplantation outcomes, minimizing graft-versus-host-disease (GVHD), improving selection of CAR T patients, global health and improving health care disparities. I am always looking for new ways to collaborate with my colleagues to apply the best scientific evidence in a compassionate manner to care for our patients.
