Dr. Carol Nicole Gorman - "Dr. Nikki" M.D.

CT Top Docs 2015 Recognition

Born and raised in sunny southern California, I have grown to love the East Coast with its beautiful fall and family friendly lifestyle. My husband and I moved to Westport in 2001 and have been very happy raising three children in such a vibrant community.
 
The University of Pennsylvania first drew me east. At Penn for undergraduate studies, I graduated cum laude with a double major in English and Biology. After college, I worked for one year at a home for children who were removed from their families in North Carolina. Having fallen in love with North Carolina, where my mother was born and raised, I decided to attend Duke University Medical School (Go Blue Devils!) and my passion for basketball was started.

For our training, my husband and I decided to venture to Northern California, where I became a pediatric resident at The Stanford University's Children's Hospital - Lucile Packard Hospital for Children. After three great years in the Bay area we returned to NYC so my husband, David Lomnitz, could complete his training in cardiology. For the following five years, I practiced pediatrics as a member of the Cornell Medical College Faculty Practice. After moving to Connecticut to raise our family, I eventually joined Children's Health Services in Weston, CT.  I met Dr. Jenn when it became clear we needed another physician for our rapidly growing practice. We have been practicing together for over 10 years now.  Dr. Jenn and I moved the practice to Westport at the end of 2009, beginning Village Pediatrics.  

I feel lucky to have the privilege of taking care of so many wonderful, interesting families here at Village Pediatrics! I love caring for twins/multiples (fascination since childhood), and I am blessed to have built up quite the twin following (click here for great twin resources). I enjoy educating parents about the joys and blessings of twinship. I am also well-versed in ADHD, it's management and parenting challenges associated with it. (click here for helpful books about ADD/ADHD). 

In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my kids, cheering at basketball and soccer games, being a girl scout leader, hiking, biking, reading and traveling.  Best vacation ever was Costa Rica and in my fantasies, I’m riding a horse to work and wearing shorts 365 days/year.

Village Pediatrics  is my dream...a small practice where you know your patients and they know you. I am committed to its success!
