“I want my patients to come to me because they trust me.”

Growing up in India, Dr. Rekha Nair was always fascinated when a doctor visited her home, “As a child, I really took an interest in what physicians did, whether they were giving an injection, providing a pill, or using a stethoscope. It was just fascinating to me.” she explains. “In college, I really loved science, so it seemed natural to study medicine and become a doctor.”

After graduating from medical school, Dr. Nair thought she would become a pediatrician due to her love of children. However, she started working in a hospital and became very interested in Internal Medicine. “I found I really enjoyed dealing with the challenges that Internal Medicine presents, from diagnosing illnesses to solving different problems. I find the whole human fascinating.”

Dr. Nair is a big believer in developing a partnership with her patients. “I want my patients to come to me because they trust me and know I will give them the care that’s right for their needs. I think it’s important to foster an enduring relationship with every patient, since they are really trusting you with their life.”

According to Dr. Nair, the learning process never ends in medicine. “You are always learning, just because you are a doctor doesn’t mean you know everything. I am always updating myself everyday, it’s like that for every doctor.”

The mother of two children, Dr. Nair jokes that she likes to spend time with her “three boys,” the third being her husband. She and the family love traveling and visiting different places. Dr. Nair also enjoys reading mystery novels and cooking on the weekends for her family.
