Q & A with Dr. Percy Huggins

How did you get into pediatrics?
Kids are the best! I always knew I wanted to be in the medical field and always had second jobs working with children. Pediatrics was a perfect fit. It is such a joy to work with and care for children as well as ease parental fears.

Where did you grow up?
I grew up in an cabin on a lake, in a small town called Medford Lakes, New Jersey.

Where do you live?
I live with my husband and two boisterous boys in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

What do you enjoy most about working in your neighborhood office?
It truly feels like a family-oriented small town in the heart of Brooklyn. My co-workers are fantastic which creates a pleasurable work environment.

What keeps you motivated?
I am always motivated to keep getting better at a job I love. Pediatric medicine is always changing so it’s filled with daily learning opportunities. The kids keep you on your toes which makes it extra fun.

What do you do for fun?
I love exploring the city we live in, hunting for delicious food in all the neighborhoods, cooking, exercising, reading and taking time to get out into nature.
