Education, Relationships, and Expert Care: Dr. Nneka Unachukwu’s Approach to Independent Pediatrics

From the University of Nigeria to her independent practice in Georgia, Dr. Nneka Una shares important lessons from a rich career in medicine. She offers her approach to independent practice management, whole-child care, and professional coaching—an approach that is grounded in strong relationships and education.

Dr. Nneka Unachuwku—or Dr. Una, as her patients and colleagues call her—strives for excellence in all that she does. The very name of her practice communicates her commitment to quality. “Our practice is called Ivy League Pediatrics because the quality of care that we give is nothing short of excellent,” Dr. Una says. “The name is there because that’s what we strive to be.” And then, with a playfulness that characterizes many of her reflections, Dr. Una adds, “And you know, I was educated at the University of Nigeria, which is the Ivy League of Nigeria,” she laughs. “But the main reason behind the name is to reflect the level of service that we offer.”
