Why did you choose to work at Rainbow Pediatric Center? During my residency, I learned a lot about the local pediatric offices through various patients and physicians. I always heard great things about Rainbow pediatrics so when I decided to stay in Jacksonville after residency, I knew it was one of the offices I wanted to pursue. When I had the ability to meet with Dr. Reddy and other providers, I knew this was an inviting environment I could see myself fitting into well.
