Back to Find a Doctor

Dr. Nancy N. Fajman, MD, MPH, MMSc

I am a pediatrician who attended medical school and residency at Emory/Grady. I’ve continued to work in Pediatrics for Emory for over twenty years. Currently I work in the primary care clinic at Hughes Spalding seeing my own patients and supervising residents. I am also the lead physician at the Stephanie V. Blank Center for Safe and Healthy Children at Hughes Spalding where we see children when there is a concern for child maltreatment. Finally, at the School of Medicine I am a small group leader for medical students, working with a group of 8-9 for their four years of medical school.
