About

Bio

Hi! My name is Nantida. I was born and raised in Thailand. My family background is in the business but I had my calling in Medicine when I was in junior high school. I went to Siriraj medical school in Bangkok, Thailand. I became the first doctor in our family. After graduation, I practiced in the rural area of Thailand for few years. I decided to pursue my dream by coming to the USA where I had my training in Internal Medicine at MetroWest Medical Center in MA.
