“My goal is to help people. To do that,
the most important thing is to really
listen to patients.”
Dr. Adetoun Adebule has been interested
in taking care of people from the time
she was a young girl growing up in
Nigeria. Instead of playing with her dolls,
she would treat them like patients.
“I like to make sure everyone is doing

She gets deep fulfillment from caring
for patients, especially those who are
“Obstetrics is a happy place to be,” she
said. “It’s a special time for any woman
who is having a child.”

“The impact you have on one lady’s life also impacts her family,” Dr. Adebule said. “That impact spreads and can really be beneficial to many lives.”
She describes herself as a passionate person who is extremely dedicated to her work.
Her approach to care is to always put
the patient’s needs first and listen to them intently.
Dr. Adebule earned her medical degree from St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada. She completed her residency at Rochester Regional Health System in New York.
She is a people person and enjoys spending time with friends. She also likes music, cooking, travelling, reading and braiding hair. Her parents are the most important people to her, and she occasionally gets to visit them back in Nigeria. Dr. Adebule is one of five children.
