Message from Dr. Nallainathan
As most of you know, I am retiring
at the end of December 2017. It has been my pleasure to serve my community for
the past 40 years as a pediatric neurologist. I joined Neurological Specialist
in December of 1977. It has been gratifying to see my practice grow over time.
I have had the distinct privilege to work with so many children and families in
the Fairfield County area. I feel lucky that I can
genuinely still say that I love what I do.
With my departure I have referred
all patients appropriately. Some of the older patients are being transferred to
one of the adult neurologists in the practice. The pediatric patients will see
either Dr. Kazi or my nurse practitioner, Carol Boland.
As the cliché goes, it feels
bittersweet to say goodbye. I hope to enjoy more golf, more travel and more
time with my granddaughter and family.
