Sushama Gundlapalli, M.D.

“My father, a physician, played a large role in my initial interest in the field of medicine. His struggle with a gastrointestinal illness and my close personal involvement with his care later led me to my focus in gastroenterology.”

“Through experience, I’ve learned that relationships are the key to excellent care. I evaluate patients’ symptoms by taking into account the person as a whole, rather than treating a specific complaint. My objective is to provide excellent healthcare to each and every one of my patients and to help educate them about their illness through open communication.”
