Englewood Hospital Residents

Emmanuel Adomako, MDEmmanuel Adomako, MD

I completed my medical education in Ghana and worked at a major teaching hospital. The healthcare needs I saw in my environment spurred me to pursue internal medicine. I choose Englewood Hospital because of its focus on humanistic care, and I have not been disappointed. Englewood’s internal medicine residency program has offered me an extremely well-rounded experience, and helped to nurture my interest in pursuing a fellowship in nephrology. Outside the hospital, my interests include biking, blogging, humor and spending time with my family.

I graduated from Beirut Arab University in my home country of Lebanon. I came to the United States to gain the best education for my career in medicine. I chose Englewood Hospital because of its friendly and supportive environment. During my residency, I have had wonderful clinical experiences; with the opportunity to participate in many local and international conferences. In this program, I was able to discover my potential due to a great balance between autonomy and supervision. My interest in Endocrinology has grown and is what I intend to pursue as a fellowship. In addition to medicine, I enjoy playing tennis, jogging and cooking.

Sahai Donaldson, MDSahai Donaldson, MD

I completed my medical education at the University of the West Indies; where I honed my clinical skills through the treatment of the ethnically and socioeconomically diverse population. This allowed me to successfully translate my clinical skills to provide care to the diverse populations in my new home at Englewood Hospital. The support of the academic staff has facilitated an increased sensitivity to cultural competency, with its robust emphasis on caring for Bloodless patients as well as Quality Improvement. As I continue to grow my skills as a considerate clinical physician, I hope to pursue a career in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. When not immersed in scholarly activity, I enjoy going out for dinner with friends to enjoy the diverse cultures in and around New York City.

Tanikka Patel, MDTanikka Patel, MD

I was born in the USA and raised in Zambia, Africa, until the age of 18. I moved to the UK where I completed my BSc Biomedical Sciences degree after which I pursued my Medical degree at St George’s University in Grenada. Englewood Hospital was my first choice residency program, and I was thrilled to have been accepted here. We have exposure to a wide variety of diseases within a diverse multicultural population. We also have friendly, supportive, and encouraging staff. The faculty and clinicians are all committed to assisting in advancing our educational experiences. We have the opportunity to participate in research, and travel to national conferences annually to present our work. This robust and fruitful program has continually helped me to develop leadership skills I will use well beyond my time here. I truly enjoy spending time with my co-residents outside of our work environment, and I consider my colleagues my second family. The city of Englewood, which lies within close proximity to NYC, is as beautiful as it is peaceful. Outside of medicine I enjoy traveling, adventures, food and horse-back riding.
