Dr. Ajala is board-certified in hematology, medical oncology, and internal medicine. She earned her medical degree from the University of Lagos College of Medicine, Nigeria. She comes to Mount Nittany Health from the Department of Medical Oncology and Hematology, UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, in Williamsport.

“A cancer diagnosis is life-changing,” she says. “I’m blessed to be able to help my patients and share their journey with them—from diagnosis to treatment and survivorship—and all the highs and lows in between. As I care for patients, I keep in mind to treat others the way I would like to be treated if I were in their shoes. Each day is a gift, and I try to make the best use of each opportunity the day brings.”
Outside the office, Dr. Ajala enjoys spending time with her husband, son, and daughter. She also loves reading novels, traveling, watching movies, and soccer during her spare time.
