Dr. Austin I. Ogwu
My interest in medicine stems from the fact that I lost my mother at an early age of three months from a simple and treatable illness of diarrhea with dehydration. I have since held the opinion that no one should have to die from lack of basic health care.
After completing my high school education in Nigeria where I was born, I went to Alexandria University in Egypt where I obtained my pre-med and medical degrees with honors. On graduation I returned to Nigeria and later to Zimbawe to provide medical services to the under served population.
I did my residency in internal medicine at Harlem Hospital in New York an affiliate of Columbia University. I am board certified with both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the Board of Disability Analyst.
After my training in New York, I worked for many years at Martin Luther King Family Medical Clinic where I rose to become the Medical director.
In 2003, I established Alpha Medical Center in Lancaster with the goal of providing comprehensive and quality primary care with compassion and convenience. This is one stop for primary care with dignity, quality and excellent medical services.
