Dr Vallamdas was born and raised in India until 25yrs of age. She finished my medical college in India and moved to USA to be with my husband. Dr. Vallamdas interest in kids dated back to my childhood days. While studying in my medical college, she was totally inspired by my Pediatric Attending who cared for children with utmost love and responsibility and brought a blissful smile on children’s and their parents faces. That’s when she decided to be a pediatrician!

“Being a pediatrician never lets you forget your childhood days and early motherhood days. I can connect to my patients, so well, at all levels, a child’s level, a parent of newborn level, a parent of a naughty toddler and also a parent of an adolescent. Since, I personally have gone through all these stages with my own children; I can understand the concerns of most of the parents and also behavior of their children.”

“Being a Community General Pediatrician, I get to see babies right 1-2 days after their discharge from hospital. Just like any of their family member bonds with the child, I get to bond too as child’s pediatrician. The beautiful part of it is, child grows right in front of my eyes, just like my own kids. It makes me feel I have more than 2 kids.”
