Ifeoma Agu joins CenterWell as a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner bringing over 12 years of experience within the healthcare industry. She earned her Doctorate in Nursing Practice degree from the University of Illinois in Chicago. Very early on, Dr. Agu became fascinated with the medical field and knew she would pursue a profession in this career, so that she could help make an impact on people’s lives by diagnosing and treating their conditions. She enjoys the opportunity of getting to know her patients and learning about their medical history as well as their wellness goals. She then uses that information to develop personalized care plans that help them become healthier individuals. Patient advocacy is very important to Dr. Agu, so she always tries to empower and equip her patients to be active participants in their own health. This is why Dr. Agu believes in taking her time to listen to her patients’ needs and expectations and checking to see that those needs are being met. She emphasizes the importance of developing a relationship built on trust and compassion because it helps foster an environment where patients feel that they can trust her to be the guide on their healthcare journey. When she’s not at the office caring for her patients, Dr. Agu enjoys traveling and spending quality time with her husband and friends, as well as becoming involved in local community organizations.
