Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Ogunmakin ever received is to “listen more than you speak.” The most interesting place she’s visited is Beijing and the “awe-inspiring” Great Wall of China.
Many people may not know it, but Dr. Ogunmakin is a twin. Her guilty pleasure is watching Nigerian movies while enjoying extra-rich chocolate cake.

​As a physician, I have the responsibility to support my patients medically and emotionally. Spending time listening to patients is essential. It’s also very important to build an honest and caring professional relationship with patients.
