Meet Apurwa S. Naik, MD
from Central Ohio Newborn Medicine

Part of the Central Ohio Newborn Medicine team since 2004, Dr. Apurwa S. Naik is dedicated to practicing evidence-based care. Dr. Naik is passionate about helping infants and specializes in working with those who have extremely low birth weight or who have respiratory, infectious, or nutritional issues. Dr. Naik has an individualistic patient care approach as no two patients are alike.

Seeing himself as an external force to the newborn, he works to ensure that his treatment is beneficial for the baby both short and long term.

One of his proudest moments advancing the medical industry happened during a trip to Boston in 2000, when Dr. Naik presented his research findings on mechanical ventilation to a large group of scientists and research scholars from around the world. In addition to his respect for the science behind the medicine, he appreciates the importance of communication. Having worked as a referring physician in a small town, he has been on both sides of the referring process and respects his relationships with referring physicians.

Dr. Naik has been voted as “Best Doctor” since 2007 by Best Doctors Inc. He serves on the Fetal Infant Mortality Review Team at Columbus Health Department working to prevent infant mortality.
Originally from India, Dr. Naik is now happily settled in Dublin where he enjoys spending time with his family. He and his wife have been married for over 20 years and they have two children.
