“I have been practicing medicine in Norwood since 2008 after moving here from Minnesota. I have a special interest in the treatment of diseases of the kidney, especially management of chronic kidney disease related to diabetes and hypertension.”
“I developed an interest in further studying diseases of the kidney during my residency. The kidneys are fascinating organs that finely regulate the levels of various electrolytes in our bodies. The incidence of chronic kidney disease has also been increasing, mainly associated with rising rates of diabetes and hypertension. Much can be done to slow the progression of disease and I would like to educate more people about their complications. I feel privileged to be able to help patients understand their problems and help them to gain control over them in the long run.”
In my free time, I enjoy reading and traveling with my family. I am involved in the PTO at my children’s schools and help with various educational activities such as the ‘Understanding Our Differences’ program. I also volunteer at our local library.
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.
