Preferred Name: Aparna Sridhar, MPH FACOG
I enjoy giving comprehensive care to women from puberty to menopause and beyond. I believe practice of medicine should be evidence based but individualized at the same time. My clinical interests include managing normal and high risk pregnancies, general gynecological care, access to family planning options, adolescent health care, management of menstrual problems and international health. In addition this, I also consult at the Arthur Ashe Student's Health Center as a consultant gynecologist.
