About the Provider

Bolanle Akinyele, MD, MPH, FACC, is a non-invasive cardiologist at MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute. She is board certified in internal medicine, cardiology, and advanced echocardiography. 

 Dr. Akinyele sees patients with a wide range of cardiovascular diagnoses including coronary heart disease, rhythm disturbances, and also provides preventive cardiovascular care. She has a special interest in advanced echocardiography and structural heart disease.

Dr. Akinyele received her medical degree from Howard University College of Medicine. 

During her time there, she served as co-director of The New Freedmen’s Clinic, a free, student-run, attending supervised clinic–the largest student-driven community initiative at Howard College of Medicine. Dr. Akinyele then completed her internal medicine residency at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where she also served as chief resident. Following this, Dr. Akinyele pursued advanced training through fellowships in cardiology and advanced echocardiography at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Growing up in Nigeria and during her training, Dr. Akinyele recognized the value of quality healthcare and developed a passion for expanding healthcare access and addressing cardiovascular health disparities. Thus, during her fellowship training, she completed the Master of Public Health program at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, with certificates in global health, healthcare disparities and health equity. She brings that passion to the care of her local patients and to the international cardiovascular health nonprofit with which she remains involved. 

Philosophy of Care
“I am a wife and mother of three and I bring my “mom-self” to work. I take care of each patient as if they were family, and believe in treating the person, not just the disease. I aim to provide each patient with compassionate care, clear and candid information while respecting their decisions for treatment.

I believe in excellence – in being complete and providing thorough care.  I am also committed to mutual partnerships with referring physicians, offering transparent, ongoing communication to determine the best plan for their patients.”
