Dr. Sandra Nweke, MD, is board certified in Family Medicine and completed her residency at the DeTar Family Medicine Residency Program in Texas. She says that she became a physician to help people and to continue learning about different illnesses and how they affect the human body. Her first practice was in a small town where there was a lack of specialists, so she had to wear many hats as a primary care provider for seniors. This experience helped her learn how to creatively work with less resources and to see patients from a holistic viewpoint – realizing that there are many factors that often impede seniors from achieving certain goals. For Dr. Nweke, the best part about being a physician is becoming a part of her patients’ lives, helping seniors to combat illnesses and encouraging them to become their best selves through a healthier lifestyle. Her philosophy of care is to treat every patient like a friend or family member and to answer every question so that every patient feels heard. Dr. Nweke brings an open mind to CenterWell and enjoys the team-based approach! In her leisure time, Dr. Nweke enjoys listening to music, exercising and volunteering to give back to her community.
