Amitha Omonuwa has come a long way since he was born and raised in Nigeria and immigrated to the United States with his family. His parents were both physicians, which is how he learned so much at an early age. He learned all about the importance of healthcare, as well as the importance of being kind and doing everything possible to give back to the local community, especially those who need the most help. Thus far in his career as a physician’s assistant, Amitha Omonuwa feels he has been fortunate, almost as fortunate as his patients. He worked hard to get here, and he made sure he was able to get a formal education, as well as a whole lot of hands-on experience in several surgical disciplines.
As a child, Amitha learned that helping the poor and underserved was an essential element of life as he developed a passion for that early on. It is a passion he has carried to the present day. It is the key reason he decided to embark on a career as a physician’s assistant.
