Internal Medicine-Pediatrics Graduates

Ashlee AmesAshlee Ames, M.D.
Graduated in 2012

Dr. Ames hails from the town of Nashport, Ohio, which she left to attend Ohio Wesleyan University for her undergraduate adventures. After the ambitious undertaking of majoring in chemistry with biology and psychology minors, she matriculated to Wright State University School of Medicine. She received several scholarships while in attendance, which helped to put a tiny dent in the typical post-graduate debt she has since accrued. Her past history includes excelling in llama showmanship. She was attracted to the program because of the people in it as well as the community hospital setting. She also says she appreciates "the Ras minus the music."

Dhaval DesaiDhaval Desai, M.D.
Graduated in 2012

Dr. Desai comes to us from Hotlanta. He attended Emory University with a major in economics and a minor in Spanish. While an undergrad, he was able to study abroad in Spain. Dr. Desai continued to seek warm-blooded locales at the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine, where he sweated out the first two years of medical school, only to complete his clinical years in the less temperate climate of NYC. While still in the Caribbean , he received an "Outstanding Community Service Award" for his project to educate local youths about STDs and high-risk behavior avoidance. Dhaval taught Spanish to impressionable high schoolers in Georgia prior to taking the med school plunge. He was drawn to Wright State University's Med-Peds program because he appreciated the faculty, as well as the diversity of the residents and the opportunity to work in multiple hospitals and community settings.

Jenny WaribokoJenny Wariboko, M.D.
Graduated in 2012

Dr. Wariboko calls Miami, Florida, home. She attended undergraduate at the University of South Florida in Tampa, with quite a weighty undergraduate load, including majoring in biology as well as earning minors in mathematics, chemistry, and bio-medical physics. Thus, she did not let those sandy beaches interfere with her education. She relocated to another warm and tropical locale — Ross University School of Medicine in the Caribbean — for her medical studies. Jenny was attracted to med-peds because she thought it is "the best of both worlds," as well as leaving open multiple opportunities for fellowship in the future. Dr. Wariboko is a first-degree black belt in karate and taught it, as well as tutoring math, while in Miami. She is "a huge fan of food," though she also enjoys working out, watching movies and television, and spending time with friends.

She says she appreciates the friendly atmosphere of the program and selected it with the hopes of improving care for adults and kids, especially those with cystic fibrosis.

In her spare time, Erin enjoys reading, writing poetry and watching comedians with her twin sister Jenny and her husband, Dustin Anderson, but her real passion is for running. Erin chose Internal Medicine/Pediatrics because "the people are so cool!" Wright state was a natural choice for her because she says the unique program allows her to work with the underserved, and it is well-integrated with categorical programs.

Dr. Elrefai obtained her M.D. from Ross University, and came to Med-Peds at Wright State, because she says she was charmed by the strong focus in primary care, as well as the numerous opportunities to sub-specialize. When not saving lives, Dr Elrefai enjoys shopping (as evidenced by her ever stylish and varying wardrobe), as well as being made fun of by Dr. Hudson. Additionally, Sara appreciates sleeping, playing piano and perusing fashion magazines. She plans to pursue a subspecialty in pulmonary-critical care medicine or infectious disease.

Following that, Ava decided to give the Midwest a try and attended the University of Kansas School of Medicine. She entered the Med-Peds program at Wright State in 2005 because of its strong primary care focus, which is also what lured her to this field in the first place. In her spare time, Ava likes to sleep, and actually admits to finding great enjoyment in making fun of her friends (also see "Sara Elrefai" above). When not ridiculing her friends (or perhaps, concurrent to this) she also experiences joy watching movies, drinking tea and eating as often as possible.
