Olubusayo “Saya” Obayan, M.D. M.P.H., graduated cum laude from Spelman College in Atlanta, GA with a Bachelor of Science in biology. She earned her medical doctorate and Masters in Public Health from the Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, MA.
After medical school, Dr. Obayan completed an internal medicine internship at Brown University in Providence, RI. She went on to complete a Dermatology Residency at the Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, MA. Dr. Obayan is passionate about spreading awareness about skin care and skin cancer. She has taken leadership roles in advocating for dermatologic and health policy, including an ongoing role in tanning bed legislation.
She knows you will probably go online to research your symptoms before your visit and you might be a little nervous. “When people come in they have gone online and they’re pretty anxious about their diagnosis. The best part of my job is reassuring them that it will be okay and we’re going to work together to get better.” she says.
When she’s not taking care of her patients, Dr. Obayan enjoys volunteering her time with the Hope Clinic, a free clinic for those who cannot afford insurance, and serving as a role model with the Girls Empowerment Network, an organization that aims to give young girls the self esteem and motivation to be successful.
She enjoys spending time outdoors, on town lake, and traveling with friends and family.
