Amitha Omonuwa

It was in April 2010 when Nigeria-born Amitha Omonuwa moved from a dedicated student and volunteer in the medical field to a full-time physician assistant. In his first job at this position -- already holding a B.S. and an M.S. in medical science -- Omonuwa worked as a vascular surgical first assist as well as managed all post-operative patients for The Longstreet Clinic in Georgia. He continued to share his wealth of knowledge at Gwinnett Surgical Associates. There, for four years, this physician assistant focused on vascular and general surgery. Amitha Omonuwa’s experience then relocated him to Florida from Georgia and Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, aiding in dermatologic and plastic surgery. Across six years, Omonuwa gained vast information in vascular surgical work and he carried that to Lee Physician Group in 2017 -- a physician assistant role he still holds today.
