Residency: Pediatrics, Central Texas, Austin
Mrudula Deshpande, MD
I did my Pediatric residency in Austin and have been in private PEDIATRIC practice since then for more than 30 years and am also seeing my second generation of patients. I hold a belief that an elegant preventive healthcare translates into healthy outcome for all kids. My practice strives to fulfil my belief in every possible way. From neonatal bed to the cradle and all the way through the teen years, I strive to nurture the healthful well-being of all my patients every step of the way. I aim to help parents gain clarity and eliminate fear when making decisions for their children.
It is my pleasure and loving responsibility to care for newborns at all the hospitals in the Greater Austin Metropolitan Area. I am committed to lifelong learning. I always keep myself up to date on pediatric education by studying most pediatric publications & attending more Continuing Medical Education (CME) than anyone can imagine. It is my honor to be chosen to serve on the CME Committee of the network wide St. David’s Hospitals & the Greater Austin Pediatric Society. I love teaching, training and supervising medical students and volunteer to do that
