Dr. May Nokkaew

Dr. May Nokkaew (Nock-au) was born in Bangkok, Thailand, and raised in Atlanta, GA. She attended Emory University and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology with a minor in Anthropology in 2006. She then went on to Rutgers University in New Jersey to gain a Masters in Educational Psychology in 2008. She taught in learning centers for two years while also returning to school at Georgia State University for Post-Baccalaureate pre-medicine studies through 2009.

Dr. Nokkaew graduated from Ross University School of Medicine where she was able to do rotations in Miami, Atlanta, and Chicago. She finally settled in Chattanooga to go through Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at the University of Tennessee, which she completed in June 2019. During residency, she was part of the Program Evaluation Committee and was administrative Chief Resident. She was trained and certified in robotic surgery during her time there.

Dr. Nokkaew joined Ocoee Ob/Gyn on August 1, 2019, and has been a welcomed addition to the practice. She performs robotic surgeries along with other minimally invasive surgeries and has received excellent reviews from our patients.

On her off time, Dr. Nokkaew loves to spend time with her husband, Stephen, dog, Charlie, and cats, Henry and Louie. They love rooting for the Atlanta Falcons, playing trivia, cooking, and traveling. They have loved exploring different cultures and have traveled to the Caribbean, Mexico, Italy, Turkey, Netherlands, and Belgium. While they have had amazing adventures abroad, they are really excited to develop roots in Tennessee and settle down in their new home.
