While many people look to doctors as sources of information, Deepa Nayak, MD, says she often looks to her young patients to learn more about the world. The innocence and resilience of children has always fascinated Dr. Nayak. She first became interested in medicine as a child growing up in India. Now, as a pediatrician, Dr. Nayak enjoys the camaraderie she has with her coworkers and the great relationships she has with her patients and their families. She partners with parents and helps their children grow into healthy adults. She makes listening to her patients and their parents' concerns a priority. Dr. Nayak spends her time away from the office with her husband and their young son. They enjoy taking walks and traveling with him.
