How Nigerian Doctor Saved Hillary Clinton
The United States’ Democratic Presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton has expressed her gratitude to her Nigerian-born US-based doctor, Dr. Oladotun Okunola for helping her to recover from her recent health challenge.
In a Twitter message via her handle @HILLARYCLINTON, she wrote: “I want to give a big THANK YOU to my Doctor who travels everywhere with me, Dr. Oladotun Okunola. I wouldn’t be here without him! Literally.”
Recently, Clinton left a 9/11 memorial event in New York and appeared to stumble and faint as she was assisted into a vehicle by staffers and secret service agents.
After a coughing fit during an event earlier that week, the new episode only added to the growing speculation that Clinton is suffering from potentially serious health conditions that are being hidden from the public.
Clinton’s recent behavior at various events, characterized by people assisting her walk up steps and fits of coughing, has led observers to increasingly speculate about potentially serious health problems.
However, she’s back on her feet, thanks to Dr. Okunola and her medical team.
Dr. Okunola completed medical school at Howard University College of Medicine. He stayed and completed his internship and neurology residency at Howard University Hospital, Washington, DC. He received fellowship training in epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology at Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC. He also completed a sleep medicine fellowship at Norwalk Hospital, Connecticut.
As part of his fellowship training in clinical neurophysiology/epilepsy, he focused on intraoperative and epilepsy monitoring; EEG and EMG. As a sleep specialist, he diagnoses and treats sleep related disorders such as daytime sleepiness (hypersomnolence), insomnia, narcolepsy, obstructive, central, and complex sleep apnea, etc.
Dr. Okunola is board-certified in both adult neurology and clinical neurophysiology. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Neurology.
