Dr. Nayana Vyas learned medicine throughout the world. Today, Dr. Vyas and her family are transforming medicine.
Dr. Vyas was raised in Uganda, where she was unlike most of the girls. She preferred science and was encouraged to enter medicine by her brother. After Idi Amin expelled all of the Asians in the country, Dr. Vyas would never return.
Alone in a new land, Dr. Vyas experienced her first round of medical training at India’s finest universities. Her first residency brought her to rural India, where she was ordered to assist with the Gandhi sterilization project.
Dr. Vyas moved to England to live with her husband and his family. Forced into a second residency, Dr. Vyas experienced a regimented government-run health care system, where care was coordiated through a central physician.
After a third residency, Dr. Vyas created her own destiny, moving to Orlando and building Family Physicians Group into a national leader in primary care. FPG was recognized regularly for their reduced costs and improved care.
