Dr. Foye Ikyaator is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin’s School of Medicine and, like all young doctors, she entered the world ready to make an impact and bring lifesaving treatments to her patients. But after completing her residency at Emory University’s Grady Medical School and working fulltime in several emergency rooms around Houston and Atlanta, she quickly realized that the size and broad focus of many Emergency facilities made it difficult to serve her patients with the attention and care that’s critical so critical emergency medicine.
It was then that her and her husband Orseer conceived of an Emergency Room facility that put speed of care and patient satisfaction at the center of their work. In 2015, the couple opening their first ER facility, Life Savers Emergency Room, in Houston. In addition to having the shortest wait times in the area, Life Savers has become known as the emergency facility where patients are treated like family.

Dr. Ikyaator and her staff have become mainstays at local fairs and community events, as they share their message of prevention and early detection with their community and beyond.
