These Doctor Couples Are Powerhouse Duos in Delaware

These doctor couples prove that two hearts are better than one.

Love in the hospital? Meet five Delaware couples who are working to improve lives across the First State.

Carolyn Glazer-Hockstein, M.D., and Neil Hockstein, M.D.

As students at Jefferson Medical School, Carolyn and Neil—from the class of 1999 and 2000, respectively—had many mutual friends. A pal suggested otolaryngologist Neil ask Carolyn, now an ophthalmologist, out on a date. Three months later, they were engaged.

Manu Sehgal, M.D., and Shalini Sehgal, M.D.

Initially meeting during an internship, Manu and Shalini went on to complete their internal medicine residencies at Tufts-affiliated Newton–Wellesley Hospital in Massachusetts. Manu, a geriatric specialist, and Shalini, who specializes in nephrology, have been practicing in Sussex County for nearly 20 years.

Danielle Press, M.D., and Pablo Adler, M.D.

Anesthesiologist Adler “used a friend’s thyroid cancer as an excuse to talk to [Danielle] for the first time in the operating room,” he says. For their first date, Adler says he wooed Press with a fancy meal of bone marrow and escargot. On their second date, he presented the surgeon with a bullet point presentation on why she was perfect for him.

Jonathan Romak, M.D., and Lindsay Romak, M.D.

Otolaryngologist Jonathan met Lindsay, now a radiation oncologist, in medical school at the University of Connecticut. But it wasn’t until they were both in residency at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota that they became a match. The pair moved to Delaware shortly after.

Jayshree Tailor, M.D., and Prayus Tailor, M.D.

Nephrologist Prayus met internist Jayshree on in April 2002, and they dated long distance for a year before getting married. “We appreciate our mutual understanding of our work commitments and even enjoy consulting with one another about challenging medical cases,” Jayshree says. “It’s great to be able to share the same type of career.”
