Dr. Ochieze is this week’s featured resident with DeTar Hospital’s new residency program. Here’s a little about the good doctor…

Chikezie Ochieze, MD was born in Nigeria, where he attended medical school and began practicing as a physician before moving to Houston in 2011. Dr. Ochieze, his wife Florence, his mother-in-law, and his infant daughter moved to Victoria with hopes of building their home and raising a family in Victoria, which reminds him of his hometown. He is particularly interested in learning how to fish. One of his favorite pastimes is spending time with his family. Dr. Ochieze wants to surpass his teachers and make them proud. At an early age, he was struck by an illness in his eyes, but he never let that stop him from his studies. That time in his life is his driving force behind everything he does. His overcoming of that illness empowers him. Thinking back to that time, he knows he can get through anything, and he instills that same passion in all his patients.

Please help me in welcoming Dr. Ochieze to Victoria
