Earnest Tako, MD

Dr Tako was born in Yaounde, Cameroon. Before moving to Stillwater, he lived in the Washington DC metropolitan area for 14 years and in New York City where he completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

His practice model is to empower women with knowledge so they can make informed decisions about their own health care. In addition, he is honored to be a small part of the most amazing story in life, from conception to delivery. Nothing else in his mind is more beautiful than the miracle of life-childbirth.

Dr. Tako is fluent in English, French and Spanish. He is married to his college princess, Anthonia with whom they have four beautiful children. He likes to call himself eclectic with a passion for outdoor sports ranging from road cycling to soccer and traveling.
