Amitha Omonuwa

At a young age, Amitha Omonuwa grew a passion for the medical field, watching his doctor parents help others regularly in their native Nigeria. With this desire in his heart -- and a family tradition beckoning -- Omonuwa studied medicine during his collegiate years.

First, he attended the University of West Georgia where he received a Bachelor of Science in biology and pre-medicine. He continued his studies at Emory University School of Medicine, earning a Masters of Medical Science. That degree emphasized his work as a physician assistant, a role that Omonuwa stepped into following his M.S. Coupled with volunteer experience from the Good Samaritan Health Center, Omonuwa began his career with The Longstreet Clinic in Gainesville, Georgia. Working as a physician assistant, he earned years of experience both there and his next jobs, at Gwinnett Surgical Associates and Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. Since early 2017, with almost a decade of work behind him, Amitha Omonuwa continues work as a physician assistant in Florida with Lee Physician Group.
