Nilgun Zimakas, MD, Pediatrician, Pediatric Primary Care, Burlington VT, UVM Medical Center


(relaxing music) – I’m Nilgun Zimakas, and
I’m a general pediatrician. I chose pediatrics because I’ve always loved working with children. If I didn’t become a pediatrician, I would’ve been a kindergarten
teacher, I always say. So I think children are
wonderful and magical, and it certainly makes working every day easier and more fun. One of the first things I did when I came here from Canada was establish an immigrant and refugee clinic. Having grown up in Montreal, which is a melting pot of cultures, I loved working with families from different parts of the world, and I speak three languages. And so it was nice to be able
to have that opportunity here. So we have a wonderful
refugee and immigrant clinic, and I continue to work
in that area as well. (relaxing music)
