Nikki Chestnut – Medical Assistant

Nikki was born and raised in South Philadelphia and always knew she wanted to work in healthcare. She graduated from the Thompson Institue in 2010 and worked for the University of Pennsylvania healthcare system for five years at both the Penn Pain Center and in the OB/GYN department.  During that time, she enjoyed patient care and was skilled at venipuncture, in-office testing and preparing patients for their doctor visits. She also developed an interest in the administrative side of medicine – especially billing – and went on to obtain an Associates Degree in Healthcare Administration graduating from that program in 2012. “ I love that I have experience ranging from front desk and billing to medical assisting and phlebotomy because this makes me extremely flexible and useful in many healthcare office environments.” Nikki was just accepted and will begin a Bachelor’s program at Drexel this Fall in Healthcare Administration. She has two beautiful children; Anthony who is eight and Addison who is four. She loves to binge-watch Netflix shows, hang out with family and friends and is also a big foodie. “I love working for the Bralow Medical Group because we strive to put our patients first. If you’re a patient then you know how valuable and meaningful that can be. The patient/doctor relationship, as well as the doctor/employee relationship is one-of- a-kind at Bralow Medical Group so you really feel like family when you’re here.”

Bindi 

Bindi is our calm and gentle 8 year-old dalmation which surprises many people who think dalmations are high-strung dogs. We’ve never found that to be the case with either of our dals. A “bindi” is the decorative mark worn in the middle of the forehead by Indian women – when we got this puppy she had a perfect bindi, hence her name. Bindi travels with us to the Outer Banks and the Jersey shore as well as traveling multiple times to NYC and Gettysburg where we visited our kids in college and grad school. Recently she was in the Blue Ridge mountains enjoying the Fall foliage and staying at a great B&B. Bindi lives with us on the 37 th floor of a Philadelphia high-rise and has tons of doggie friends in Washington Square Park. We bring her to the office about once a week where she provides love and comfort to our patients.
