About Me

Wasiu Adisa, DO, rejoined City of Hope in Atlanta, Georgia, in December 2021, overseeing oncology emergency services as the Evaluation and Treatment Center Medical Director. This is his second stint at our Atlanta-area hospital, after serving as Evaluation and Treatment Center Physician from December 2014 to June 2016. In returning to City of Hope, Dr. Adisa says he missed the holistic care model provided under the City of Hope Mother Standard® of care after more than a decade of expertise in emergency and urgent care.

“At City of Hope, patients can receive all the care they need: testing, specialist consultation, surgery, and emergent evaluation in urgent care,” he says. “I really have a great appreciation for the comprehensive, whole-person care model at City of Hope, and I was thrilled with the opportunity to come back as Medical Director of the Evaluation and Treatment Center at City of Hope Atlanta.”

Since starting his practice in 2007, Dr. Adisa has become a renowned authority in oncological emergency management. He is board certified in Emergency Medicine by the American Osteopathic Board of Emergency Medicine and holds certifications in Advanced Trauma Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support by the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Adisa earned his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, New Jersey, followed by an Internal Medicine Internship at Rowan University. Dr. Adisa served as Chief Intern before completing an Internal Medicine Residency at Rowan University, where he was also named Chief Internal Medicine Resident. He has also served as a guest lecturer at Rowan University, a fitting role after serving five years as a New Jersey-area high school teacher leading AP biology, anatomy, physiology, college prep and honors biology courses before launching his medical career.

Active in serving the medical community, he is a member of the Association of Nigerian Physicians in America (ANPA), and he was recently nominated chairperson of the Georgia Chapter. He volunteers regularly at the Place of Hope Clinic, located Lake City, Georgia, and is a member of the American College of Emergency Physicians and the American Osteopathic Association.

Patient ratings
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
