Niva Shakya, MD is a pediatrician with us at SamRodgers. She has been practicing for the past 7 years and has been with us for a little over 1 year.
Types of Visits
She sees a variety of patients from newborns to late teens. She makes sure your kids are healthy by providing immunizations, nutritional guidance, and follow-ups with counseling.
She is available for same-day appointments if her patient is in great need of care.
She is originally from Nepal, so she knows the need that comes with being in populations that don’t have the same access to healthcare as others.
Why She Loves Being a Provider
“It’s been a wonderful 1 year working for people from different backgrounds and ethnicity at Sam Rodgers. To be the voice for people who have just landed in the country and to provide them with proper directions for their health care needs have been a very satisfying experience for me.”
