I went in with doubts but I'm happy I have Dr Nayak & Dr Teo.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Nayak has been so helpful and caring through all my visits and surgery! He carefully listens and addresses all concerns clearly. From the very beginning I had so much faith in Dr. Nayak. My day-to-day life has improved tremendously after surgery. I truly feel lucky that I was able to be treated by someone as knowledgeable and experienced as him. I am forever thankful Dr. Nayak and Stanford Hospital.
