Nagy continued working at Squibb Canada while completing a fellowship in obstetrics and gynecology at McGill University. He started his private practice in Westmount, Que., in 1973, where he continued caring for his patients until his retirement in June 2018. As an associate professor of medicine, he was a long-standing and respected member of the McGill medical community, performing thousands of deliveries and countless ultrasounds and surgeries at the Royal Victoria and Queen Elizabeth hospitals. Bringing babies into the world was his greatest joy and accomplishment.”
