Tulika Narain, MD
I have been a pediatrician for over 15 years and it has been a lot of fun. Being a huge football fan, I tend to think of life in sports terms. I have a simple philosophy, medicine is a team sport. I truly believe that, when parents and doctors work together and communicate well, it results in the best care for the patient. Parents know their children better than anyone else and I really respect their input and honesty. I try to give that honesty and sincerity back to them. Just a warning though, even though there is nothing more important than the health of my patients, I love to have fun. I do goofy things all the time, because I do believe that laughter is the best medicine. My staff will tell you that I am crazy enough to dress up for any and every holiday! They keep threatening to put my picture on the internet, but I don’t mind because it makes people smile. I love teasing and joking around with the children. The greatest reward I get is when a child, who was very nervous, smiles through the visit. I love that the most! My children (I have two) have shown me how tough being a parent can be. Thank goodness it is very rewarding!! I find it very helpful to pass along my wisdom and understanding to my family. I have learned quite a bit between raising my children and travelling. I love to travel and most weekends, if I am off, we spend travelling around the area, exploring the world. My children are my greatest joy and I understand that most parents feel that way. That is why it is such an honor to have the trust of the parents.
