Okoye, MD is board-certified in internal medicine and provides excellent general care to the women, men, and children of greater Charlotte, North Carolina, at Eastway Medical Clinic & Urgent Care.

She dedicates herself to preventing, diagnosing, and treating a full spectrum of conditions, but also specializes in eating disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, obesity, and hair loss. Her other fields of expertise include hormone replacement therapy, HIV and AIDS, and travel care.

Dr. Okoye’s impressive medical acumen stems from her unique foundation of higher education, formal training, and global perspectives.

After earning her bachelor’s degrees in medicine and surgery from the University of Nigeria in Nsukka, Enugu -- the equivalent of a medical degree in the United States -- she completed a residency at Atlanta Medical Center in Atlanta. Dr. Okoye is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American Medical Association, and the American College of Physicians.

Before serving as a hospitalist locum at several South Carolina clinics, Dr. Okoye performed the same role at three North Carolina centers. She’s still a hospitalist locum at Piedmont Medical Center in Rock Hill, South Carolina, and Providence Hospital in Columbia, South Carolina when she’s not practicing medicine at Eastway Medical Clinic & Urgent Care.

Beyond offering top-caliber general care and an empathetic ear, Dr. Okoye reaches a broader set of patients thanks to her ability to communicate in several languages: Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Vietnamese, and Amharic.
