Chinwe Chukwurah, MD

Dr. Chinwe Chukwurah is a Family Practitioner whose true passion in life is providing Primary Care to patients. She particularly loves working in smaller communities where she feels that you truly get to know the patients you work with and become a part of their life.

Dr. Chukwurah has been practicing Medicine since 1989 and recalls as a child going into the doctor’s office and grabbing their stethoscope once they left the room. Her initial medical training was at the University of Jos in Nigeria followed by a fellowship training in Family Medicine. She completed 5 out of the 6 years training leaving to join her then fiancé in the United States. She resumed her Medical career, completing her Residency in Family Medicine in Chicago, then returning to North Carolina to work in a Rural clinic doing what she loved best; the full spectrum of Primary Care. In 2012 Dr. Chukwurah joined the VA serving those who borne the battle. She quickly rose to the position of Clinic Director within 2 years but Family ties and the fundamental love for the full spectrum of Primary care prompted her move to Sun Life in Maricopa.

She is married to Edwin, a Tennis Coach who will be running a Tennis program in Maricopa. They have 3 children and the whole family is really excited to be here in Maricopa — in their words — “this finally feels like home”. Dr Chukwurah looks forward to providing high quality evidence based Primary care in a family friendly environment.
