A paediatrician is a child’s physician who provides not only medical care for children who are acutely or chronically ill but also preventive health services for healthy children. A paediatrician manages physical, mental, and emotional well-being of the children under their care at every stage of development, in both sickness and health.

She is fluent in several Indian languages, as well as Spanish. Dr. Radhakrishna has two children who are also accomplished physicians (her son is a pediatric rheumatologist and her daughter is a DNP). She also has four grandchildren, all of whom inspire her to add ongoing fun and passion to her profession.
