Care Team

Tobi Dawodu, MD


Patients should know…

I enjoy seeing patients take ownership of their healthcare and begin to make significant strides to improve their health once they discover we care and demonstrate it.

What I generally share with my patients is that maintaining good health is a choice they have  to make by taking ownership and responsibility of the direction they desire to see their health go. I am here to be your biggest coach and advocate to succeeding.

I hope to show I care and to establish a solid relationship based on trust, that I really have their best interests in mind – even when I ask them to do some challenging tasks that will ultimately benefit them.

Background and passions

I have traveled widely, originally from Nigeria, but lived in United Arab Emirates and Canada, but now I am a resident of Kansas City, Mo. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, my faith, outdoor and indoor activities, reading, movies, salsa dancing, exercising and visiting restaurants.
