Her patients receive personalized medical treatments based on each patient’s lifestyle to obtain the best outcome for each individual. Dr. Narayan’s areas of specialization include asthma, allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, eczema, and food allergies. She welcomes adults, but also has extensive experience and training in pediatrics.

Dr. Narayan graduated with a double degree in biochemistry and religion from the University of Rochester, then received her Doctor of Medicine from St. George’s University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in general pediatrics at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital at New York Medical College, then did her fellowship training in allergy and immunology at Nassau University Medical Center in Long Island, New York.

She’s thrilled to called herself a new Texan who looks forward to offering medical care to the surrounding community. When she’s not working with patients, Dr. Narayan treasures spending time with her husband and two sons, whose laughter and energy renew her soul. She also practices yoga, enjoys being outdoors and has a passion for the art of dance.

Q&A with Archana Narayan, M.D.

1. What drew you to medicine?

Having grown up in a family of doctors, medicine was always in my blood. At a young age, I enjoyed studying the sciences and learning how the human body works. It excited me how this knowledge could be applied to help people overcome illness and lead healthier lives.

2. What are your passions outside of work?

I have always had a passion for the art of dance (all forms—classical Indian dance and ballet to Latin, hip hop, modern, etc). Dance transcends age, gender, race and-

3. What was the last TV show you binge-watched?

The Crown

4. What do you do to relax?

I love spending my free time with my husband and two young sons. Their laughter and energy is contagious! I also enjoy practicing yoga and being outdoors.

5. What makes North Texas Allergy and Asthma Associates special in your opinion?

In one word, caring. This practice takes great care of its patients and staff and that philosophy translates to excellent, state-of-the-art allergy and asthma care provided in a modern, friendly and patient-centered environment.

6. What do you enjoy most about being a doctor?

The most amazing and fulfilling thing about being a doctor is seeing my patient who was once debilitated by their condition, now leading a full and active life, as a result of the treatment plan that I helped advise and implement. As an allergist, I have been fortunate to witness these kinds of recoveries everyday.

I am a firm believer in patient education and participation as the key to improving symptoms and therapeutic success. I strive to treat my patients as I would like to be treated.

7. Do you have any allergies?


8. What is the best advice you have ever received?

As my childhood gymnastics coach used to say: “Do not pray for an easy life. Pray to be a strong person.”

9. If you could have a conversation with any person or character who would it be and why?

My grandparents who have passed on to know what is the “meaning of life” and what is on the other side.

10. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Veggie pizza from New York City with giardinara from Chicago.
