Dr. Nilong Vyas is a board certified pediatrician and mother of two boys. She was raised in New Orleans and went on to earn a Master’s in Public Health degree from Tulane University as well as an MD from Louisiana State University Medical School. After completing her Pediatrics residency at LSU, she joined private practice where, on a daily basis, she experienced her patient’s desire for more sleep for themselves as well as more sleep for their children. The parents explained that with better-rested children, their kids were happier, ate better, and developed at a more rapid rate. However, when that was not the case, secondary to many different factors, they noticed quite a change in the demeanor of their children, thus themselves. Dr. Vyas learned quickly about both children and their parent’s sleep needs thus established a strong value for sleep with her patients, in a nurturing fashion.
