Patient Care

Dr. Nathalie Saget May was born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, by her maternal grandmother. May came to the United States as a child when her grandmother succumbed to breast cancer at a time when there were only a few unpromising treatments and virtually no palliative care. Watching a loved one suffer inspired May to pursue a medical career. She attended the United Nations International School in New York City, where she learned English as a second language and Spanish as a third. She graduated valedictorian of her class and attended Princeton University, graduating magna cum laude. True to her dream of becoming a doctor, she completed her medical studies at the University of Pennsylvania, remaining there for her internship and residency in internal medicine.

Dr. May serves as the medical director of the flagship internal medicine practice here at Drexel University College of Medicine. She maintains a busy practice where she sees patients every day. Dr. May prides herself on delivering excellent care to her patients while practicing preventive, evidenced-based medicine. Although she has lost her accent, Dr. May remains fluent in French and English. She is able to converse in Spanish and Creole.

Dr. May is married with two young and very active boys, ages 6 and 8. In her spare time, you will find her reading with her boys or playing trains with them. She also enjoys tennis and classical music.
