“My little patients never fail to bring a smile on my face and joy in my heart. Working with children gives me a great sense of purpose.”Influenced greatly by an aunt who was a pediatrician, Dr. Prabhu had wanted to follow in her footsteps as far back as she can remember. She loves that she gets to make a difference in children’s lives, the most rewarding part of the job, and the variety of challenging cases keep the practice of medicine intellectually stimulating.Board certified in pediatrics, Dr. Prabhu earned her medical degree at Jawaharial Nehru Medical College at Karnataka University in Belgaum, India, and completed residencies in pediatrics at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Pontiac, Michigan and at Children’s Hospital in Buffalo. She advocates a holistic approach that encompasses physical, emotional and behavioral issues, and has special interests in allergies, asthma, and promoting healthy lifestyle changes. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, walking outdoors, music, reading, and spending time with family.
