OSAMEDE EDOKPOLO, MD
Owner & Medical Director
I received my medical degree from UNIBEN one of the foremost medical schools in Nigeria. I did a psychiatry residency in Dublin, Ireland before relocating to The States and completing another psychiatry residency at the famous St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, DC, where I was one of the Chief Residents.
My background experience of working with patients with mental illnesses across cultures and different health systems affords me a unique perspective of the various important aspects of providing quality care including in the form of telepsychiatry which many patients find to be very convenient.
I am a board certified general adult psychiatrist by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and I am an active fellow of the American Psychiatric Association.
I am fully licensed in the states of Missouri, Texas, DC, and California.
I have authored a number of papers that are published in peer reviewed journals, and have been widely cited by other researchers.
