Randy Naidoo, MD.
Born in Dallas, TX and raised in Garland, Dr. Naidoo attended Heather Glen Elementary, O’banion Middle School, and South Garland High School. His home included an immersion in sports from family activities, to extracurricular programs, to television programming and whatever else involved sports. His two younger brothers were also sports junkies.
Dr. Naidoo’s love for sports took him to the University of Miami Florida to walk-on and play three years of football under Coach Butch Davis and his position coach, Chuck Pagano, formerly head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
His passion for children was magnified at Miami with youth football clinics, Boys and Girls club volunteering, and having been a kid himself. With a Biomedical Engineering degree, he listened to his mother’s consideration to become a doctor. Naidoo chose UT Houston Health Sciences as his place of study. On entrance to medical school, pediatrics was his only thought. While his peers tried to figure out their futures during their 4th year, he took electives in all pediatric specialties. His residency was completed at Children’s Medical Center Dallas. He was chosen to become chief resident, but instead had to serve his active duty commitment to the Air Force for the Health Professions Scholarship.
Serving 4 years at Dyess Air Force Base as the sole Pediatrician, and also being responsible for several other areas of the base clinic provided Dr. Naidoo with experience he would never have obtained in a traditional pediatric practice. It allowed for independent research and the ability to hone in on the kind of pediatrician he wanted to be. His focus was Behavior and Parenting. He also developed his skill set as an Allergy Extender for adults and children along with a passion for educating childhood educators about neurodevelopment.
After completing his commitment, Dr. Naidoo joined Healthy Kids Pediatrics. His continued progress in Complementary Medicine with Board Certification by the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine provided him with more exposure to other MDs with a holistic approach..
Dr. Naidoo looks forward to the journey of creating a relationship with the Athlete that allows them to compete at a high level, while taking care of their most valuable asset, their bodies and minds.
