Neelema Pinnapureddy, DO
Plano, Las Colinas
“I went into medicine because I was inspired by my grandfather, a physician in India, who provided care to the underserved and treated them with dignity and respect. I believe in treating every patient as I would my own family member. I formulate a plan that treats not only the disease, but takes into account each patient that has their own needs. I will provide the best compassionate care for all patients and am honored to be trusted as their physician.”
