Dr. Adike was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria where at an early age, she discovered a passion for medicine. She graduated summa cum laude from Baylor University, with a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry and medical humanities. She earned her medical degree from the University of Connecticut.
After medical school, Dr. Adike completed internal medicine residency at the Houston Methodist Hospital, which is consistently ranked by the US news as the best hospital in Texas.
While she liked the convenience of Houston's big city lifestyle, the hot and humid Houston weather soon grew tiresome. So, when the time came for fellowship, Dr. Adike opted for the cooler climate of the Phoenix desert where she completed her gastroenterology and transplant hepatology fellowship training at the Mayo Clinic - also consistently ranked as the best hospital in Arizona.
Dr. Adike has a special interest in liver diseases, and she enjoys caring for people with inflammatory bowel diseases. She is a member of the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases and the American College of Gastroenterology. Dr. Adike has authored many publications, peer-reviewed articles, and has presented her research in several national and international conferences.
Dr. Adike believes that in this busy world of medical practice, listening to her patients is an essential part of the healing process and is something she strives to do every day at the bedside. When she is not seeing patients, Dr. Adike enjoys serving her community, reading books from diverse cultures, and spending time with her husband and children.
