We would like to welcome Cardiologist Chinualumogu Nwakile, MD. Dr. Nwakile completed his medical school training at the University of Nigeria and went on to complete his Internal Medicine residency at Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Nwakile was most recently a Chief Fellow in the cardiology program at Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. Dr. Nwakile will be joining the Cardiology team on the second floor of Hannibal Regional Medical Group.
“The moment I chose to become a physician happened in my teens” shares Dr. Nwakile. “The dexterity and patience of a doctor saved my father’s life. It was at a point when virtually all hope was lost! I wanted to experience the joy associated with giving myself to take care of people with health needs.” Dr. Nwakile strives to give the best of himself to each of his patients while being sensitive to the emotional and psychological needs of his patients and their family.
When talking about the most rewarding part of being a physician, Dr. Nwakile notes, “Seeing that smile on the face of a patient whose life I have touched in some way – that is probably one of the greatest feelings anyone can have! The happiness I experience when families joyfully take their loved ones home after an episode of ill health makes the long hours all worth it.”
Welcome to the team, Dr. Nwakile!
