About Austin I. Ogwu, MD
My interest in medicine stems from the fact that I lost my mother when I was just three months old from a simple and
treatable illness of diarrhea with dehydration. I have since held the opinion that no one should have to die from lack of basic
health care. After completing my high school education in Nigeria where I was born, I went to Alexandria University in Egypt
where I obtained my pre-med and medical degrees with honors. On graduation, I returned to Nigeria, and later to Zimbawe,
to provide medical services to the under served population. I did my residency in internal medicine at
Harlem Hospital in New York, an affiliate of Columbia University. After my training in New York, worked for many years at
Martin Luther King Family Medical Clinic in Dallas where I rose to become Medical Director. I have been board certified with
both the American Board of Internal Medicine and the Board of Disability Analyst.
In 2003, I established Alpha Medical Center in Lancaster with the goal of providing comprehensive and quality primary care
with compassion and convenience. This is one stop for primary care with dignity, quality and excellent medical services.
