Dr. Reddy’s memberships include the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons.
Ophthalmology has always felt a natural choice for Dr. Reddy. She was drawn to both the medical and surgical aspects of the practice in following patients in clinic and having the ability to offer surgical solutions to issues. The diversity of patients; both adults and children, and diversity of procedures; eyelids, lacrimal system, tumors, skin cancers, and aesthetics, encouraged her pursuit of an oculoplastics training.
When not working, Dr. Reddy enjoys spending time with her husband and two children, traveling, cooking and baking.
