Abimbola Adike, MD

Double Board Certified, Gastroenterology and Transplant Hepatology
Dr. Adike Portrait
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.

"My mission here at Kitsap Gastro is to ensure that each individual that walks through our door is heard, feels valued and is given the best care possible."

Administrative Assistant
"I love working with people! I've had a variety of careers over the years and they have all involved some sort of customer service/helping others. In fact, I love working with people so much that I have decided to go back to school to become a nurse and expect to graduate with my Bachelors of Nursing in December 2023!  When I'm not working with the great team at Kitsap Gastro and Liver Clinic or studying, I love spending time with my husband and our 9-year old son doing things like hiking, camping, or exploring the many beaches of the area. I also enjoy reading and spending time with friends and family."
