I don't see your purpose of your question. Nadelik < Natalicia, medhek > medicus. The original -ic- in the Latin borrowings is phonetically identical with the the origin of the -yk suffix.
I just wanted to point out that -yk can alternate with -ak. That means that the distinction between ik/yk and ek/ak is not phonemic.
