Third Year Medical Student and Blogger Says Ross was the “Best Decision of My Life”

July 18, 2017

ALUMNI: Ross Alumna is a New Jersey “Top Doc”

July 11, 2017

Ross alumna Nagaeda Jean, MD, FACOG, an obstetrician and gynecologist, is named a 2017 Top Doctor in Montvale, N.J.

According to Top Doctor Awards, the organization specializes in recognizing and commemorating the achievements of today’s most influential and respected doctors in medicine. Dr. Jean’s recognition is based on her education, research contributions, patient reviews, and other quality measures to identify top doctors.

“Using my knowledge to help give my patients the best care and guidance I can, especially my young female patients, is truly gratifying,’ says Dr. Jean. “Also, helping to bring new life into this world is deeply rewarding.”

Practicing for about a decade, Dr. Jean is on staff at Hackensack University Medical Group at Pascack Valley. Her career began at the Brooklyn Hospital Center in New York where she completed her residency. Dr. Jean graduated from Ross in 2007.

Dr. Jean attributes her successful 10-year career to working hard, treating every patient as if they were a family member and staying humble.

“Ultimately, I would love to have more of a role in education - helping mold the next generation of physicians,” says Dr. Jean when contemplating the next phase of her career.

Dr. Jean is a Fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
