Get to Know Me

Dr. Nidhi Chander is the Medical Director of Complex Care Pediatrics at Nemours Children's Hospital, Florida in Orlando. She cares for children with multiple/complex medical conditions.

Why I Treat Children

After being deathly ill and hospitalized for more than a month when I was nine, I decided I wanted to be a doctor and take care of kids.

What I'm Passionate About

My goal is to be a compassionate and caring physician who advocates for kids’ health and safety — all kids, regardless of socioeconomic status.

I want to not only address each child’s medical ailments, but also their “whole person.” A child’s social and emotional needs, mental well-being and goals/desires are just as important as their basic medical needs.
