About me

I was born in Ibadan, Nigeria, came to the U.S. in the early 1990s, and lived in Houston, Texas before moving to Phoenix, Arizona. I’ve worked across the healthcare industry, including home health, geriatric care, long term care, and transitional care. It is my belief that a role in primary care is an avenue to advocate for and treat patients, assist in keeping patients physically fit and in active lifestyles, and manage health challenges if or when they occur. My sojourn into healthcare was motivated by a personal loss and the way the medical team treated my family and me. Providers should be empathetic and compassionate in their care and foster a deep relationship with the patient, and that's what I'll do for my patients.

I enjoy spending quality time with my daughters Bercy and Miracle, and Onyx our chipit. I enjoy watching movies, going out to karaoke with friends, long walks, and playing word games and trivia.

What their patients are saying:
Dorthy was very professional, personal and responsive to our health care issues. Great health care giver!
I had adequate time to explain my problem. Dorothy asked appropriate questions and listened to my responses. Good experience!
