Dr. Nyman was residency trained at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas from 1998-2001 & received his Medical Degree from The Chicago Medical School & graduated in 1998. His fun-loving personality has been one of the reasons why most of his patients leave with a smile. His attentions to parent concerns have pleased our Patient parents and they have been recommending him and the Practice to their friends and neighbors.Spending ample time with his patients during their appointments has been one of the main reasons as to why parents have been exceedingly pleased with trusting him with the care of their children.
His interests outside of work include, music, movies (especially the scary ones!) & all manner of brain games & puzzles. Dr. Nyman was raised in Tempe & is thrilled to be in the East Valley-this time for good!!
Dr. Kelly Hughes D.O., a local pediatrician joined Bethesda Pediatrics in May 2010. A graduate of the St. Joseph’s Hospital Residency Program, she was also a Staff Pediatrician at an established Central Phoenix pediatric clinic prior to joining Bethesda Pediatrics. She is a board-certified Pediatrician who is working on learning more Spanish every day. Her motto of “Carpe Diem”, or seize the day helps her to remember to live life to its fullest and make the most out of everyday and patient interaction.
Dr. Hughes was born in Phoenix, but raised in southern California where she got her medical degree at Western University of Health Sciences. She returned “home” for her pediatric residency at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Phoenix. As a D.O. she has been trained in all the traditional practices of medicine with the addition of 200+ hours of hands on manipulation of muscles and bones for diagnosis and treatment.
Her patients appreciate the added attention to preventing future illnesses and injuries. She believes that the biggest impact we can have on our world is to equip parents with the tools they need to raise healthy, happy and productive children.
Dr. Hughes is happily married for over a decade. She became a mother to a little boy named Hunter in January 2010 and she is expecting a new addition to her family on March of 2016. She loves the fact she can now apply the practical application to all of her medical training. In her free time Dr. Hughes loves to travel the world, cook, camp, hike, swim and just spending time with her family.
