Dr. Olubukola Okoro fondly referred to by friends and family as “Bukky” developed an early interest in medicine at a young age after yearning to follow in her father’s footsteps to help people. She lived in multiple countries in Africa and then England before migrating to the United States for college.
She attended Metropolitan State University and received a bachelor’s in biology. During the period, she attained her licensed practical nurse license and then went on to attain her Registered Nurse license. Following college, she worked a few years as a Registered Nurse and then decided she wanted more.
She then proceeded to attend Ross University School of Medicine in the Dominica and completed her clinical rotations in the United States. She attended her 3-year residency program in Internal Medicine at St. John’s Hospital in Detroit, MI. She got board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in 2015 and received her Texas Medical License the same year.
During a brief visit to the Dallas- Fort Worth area, she fell in love with Allen and knew it was the perfect place for her to start a family. She got a job where she worked as an Internal Medicine Physician/ Hospitalist at Texas Presbyterian Hospital, Dallas for two years. Following that position, she worked as an Internal Medicine Physician/Hospitalist and member of the stroke committee at Texas Presbyterian Hospital, Allen before deciding she wanted to open her own practice.
She has deep roots in Allen and absolutely loves the community. When she isn’t at work, she plays a wife to her husband Tochi (an engineer) and a mother to two boys, Caleb (4 years old) and Joshua (19 months old).
During her free time, she enjoys exploring restaurants, working out, singing and spending time with her family.
She really looks forward to meeting all of you and forming a special bond with all her patients.
