Dr. Angella Makaha-Lyo is a compassionate and dedicated family medicine physician with a lifelong passion for helping people overcome health struggles and make the best choices for their long-term wellbeing. She understands that some people may have stress or anxiety around visiting the doctor, and strives to create a judgment-free environment to educate and empower her patients so that they fully understand and feel in control of their course of treatment. She aims to treat the whole patient, accounting for the ways that the body and mind interact and not just curing disease but also helping to create a healthy mindset and setting attainable goals to achieve optimal health outcomes. Ideally, this is not a journey that patients have to take alone, and Dr. Makaha-Lyo believes strongly in the importance of a collaborative support system of friends and loved ones to help each patient reach their goals.

A graduate of Oral Roberts University with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, Dr. Makaha-Lyo achieved her doctorate at St. George’s University in Grenada. She went on to complete her residency in family medicine at HackensackUMC Mountainside in Montclair, New Jersey. Additionally, her medical background includes pharmaceutical study as well as extensive research into diabetes management and the physical and mental impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. She joined the team at Medical Offices of Manhattan in 2022.

When not helping her patients, Dr. Makaha-Lyo enjoys running, crocheting, and spending time with her family.
