Dr. Osofisan most recently cared for patients at UnityPoint Health in Peoria, Illinois. He has been a practicing cardiologist for more than 30 years, bringing extensive experience and comprehensive knowledge to the patients he serves.

“My goal is to provide the best cardiovascular care with the utmost compassion while utilizing state-of-the-art technology and evidence-based techniques. I strive to exceed patient’s expectations and achieve favorable outcomes,” said Dr. Osofisan, who is also a member of the Association of Black Cardiologists. “Georgia Heart Institute shares in that mission by improving the health of the community it serves, which is why I’m excited to be a part of this organization.”
