Patient Testimonial
The single most kind, caring, professional, smart, and incredible doctor I’ve ever worked with.

Dr. Nair has great bedside manners. She is very warm and patient. She made things very easily to understand and will follow through.

We love Dr. Nair! As a same-gender couple, we definitely appreciated how warm and caring Dr. Nair was with us.

Her bedside manner, empathy and expert knowledge helped make our dreams come true. We are forever thankful to Dr. Nair.

I felt that she was invested in us, which is hard to find with many doctors today.

Dr. Nair is an amazing doctor and allowed us to start our long awaited family! She was there every step of the way!

Dr. Nair was very helpful and thorough in going through our options and providing pros and cons associated with each step.

We could not have asked for a better doctor to help guide us on this long and often frustrating journey. She’s fantastic.
