Dr. Sridhar grew up in Ann Arbor, MI, and earned her medical degree from The Ohio State University College of Medicine. She spent three years doing post-graduate work in the Family Medicine Residency Program at the Mountain Area Health Education Center in Asheville, NC.
Dr. Sridhar is passionate about lifestyle medicine, a relatively new field that uses preventive wellness care to treat and reverse chronic illnesses through evidence-based lifestyle interventions. Lifestyle medicine focuses on six areas: nutrition, physical activity, healthy sleep, stress management, positive social interactions and avoiding risky substances. “When patients are committed to this approach, they can make and sustain major changes in their health,” said Dr. Sridhar.
“I went into medicine to work with underserved populations, which is why I chose primary care medicine,” Dr. Sridhar said. “Everyone needs an excellent primary care doctor. I like being the first doctor the patient sees when trying to figure out a problem and developing long-term relationships with my patients throughout their lives.”
