Specialties

Dr. Venkatappa M Padmanabha has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. was unprofessional with me on my visit there with my parents. He refused to give me my parents medical history and seemed uninterested in my fathers health.

Dr. Pad has been an active member of the community for many years now, and has provided reliable service throughout the years to the hospital, DVMG, and his clinic. For this, I have stuck with him as my doctor for the past 20 years for his experience and knowledge of communitys resources. Reliable and caring doctor.
