Hannibal Regional Medical Group is excited to welcome Dr. Nwakile to their Cardiology team.

Dr. Nwakile comes to Hannibal from Philadelphia, Penn., where he was a Chief Fellow of Cardiology at the Einstein Medical Center. Dr. Nwakile has been a physician for over 10 years and joins the Hannibal Regional Medical Group’s expert cardiology team of Dr. Alvi, Dr. Harruna, Dr. Valuck and Kim Cordes, CVNP-BC.

“The moment I chose to become a physician happened in my teens,” Dr. Nwakile said. “The dexterity and patience of a doctor saved my father’s life. It was at a point when virtually all hope was lost. I wanted to experience the joy associated with giving myself to take care of people with health needs.” Dr. Nwakile strives to give the best of himself to each of his patients while being sensitive to the emotional and psychological needs of his patients and their family.  

When talking about the most rewarding part of being a physician, Dr. Nwakile noted, “Seeing that smile on the face of a patient whose life I have touched in some way — that is probably one of the greatest feelings anyone can have. The happiness I experience when families joyfully take their loved ones home after an episode of ill health makes the long hours all worth it.”

Chinualumogu Nwakile, MD is accepting new patients and works alongside Hannibal Regional Medical Group’s highly skilled cardiology team. To reach the Cardiology offices at Hannibal Regional Medical Group call 573-629-3500.
