Dr. Padma Garvey
I was born in Nellore India and moved to the United States in 1971 when I was 4 years old. I grew up in Pittsburgh. I went to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for college. I went to the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine where I graduated Cum Laude in 1988. I did my residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the New York Hospital in 1992.
I am married to my physician husband for 25 years and have a 21 year old son and an 18 year old daughter. I work full-time as a physician. I understand the struggles families face nowadays in finding time to eat healthy.
After watching my father die from complications of diabetes, I decided I was not going to die the same way. My own personal health journey inspired me to teach my patients everything I have learned.
Good health is something we can all achieve. It does not require more pills, more procedures, more tests, and more doctor visits.
Please check out my podcasts on ITunes, my cooking videos on YouTube, and follow me on Facebook.
I dedicate this website to my late father,
Dr. K. N. Rao.
