Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Osoro has received is: “Life is a journey – the path now and forever. Plan for the future, be fully in the present, and learn from the past.”

The most exotic places he has visited are Bali in Indonesia, Cape Town in South Africa, and Jerusalem. He grew up in Nairobi, Kenya.

As a kid, he dreamed of becoming a pilot and doctor – a flying doctor. He enjoyed watching what the surgeons at AMREF were able to accomplish with their skills both in medicine and aviation.


I follow a more conservative, evidence-based approach in the treatment of cardiac diseases. I believe that most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented through lifestyle and diet. I recommend a whole plant-based diet to all of my patients.
