“I have been practicing medicine since 1998 in Norwood. I come from a large family in India. I grew up seeing many of my family members, including my father, suffering from diabetes complications. When I was young, my mother donated a kidney to my father to keep him alive for few years, but he eventually succumbed to the illness. All of this played a role in choosing medicine as my profession. I want to help people improve their lives through better lifestyle, general health awareness and being accessible to them.”
“I am very fortunate to be a primary-care doctor as I am constantly involved in many challenges of improving care and the lives of my patients. I am grateful to all my patients for the mutual trust, respect and bonding that directly result in better quality of care. Everyone is entitled to better health and no one is more strongly positioned than a primary-care physician for directly improving a patient’s quality of life. I like to know my patients well, make them comfortable and treat them with the utmost respect and compassion. I pride myself on being very thorough and providing comprehensive care for my patients.”
In her free time, internist Dr. Gowda likes to travel around the world and learn about different people and cultures. She enjoys reading books, watching movies and spending time in her garden. She also supports many charities in the areas of improving education, healthcare and hunger.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Gowda for years. I am very confident that she will provide excellent care & good judgment. Very happy with my choice for my primary care physician. Janice Foscaldo.
J.F (For Dr. Savitha Gowda)
I was seen very close to my scheduled appointment and waiting about 8-10 minutes for the doctor. My appointment was a pleasant, productive experience and was referred to a pain clinic. Hoping for a good outcome.
