About Dr. Gudaru

Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) proudly announces the addition of Jahnave Gudaru, MD, family medicine physician.

Dr. Gudaru received her Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.B.S.) degree from Pondicherry Institute of Medical Sciences and Research in Pondicherry, India and completed her residency at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tenn.

“My dad is a primary care physician,” she said. “He made a big impact on my decision to become a physician. I was able to see first-hand how he treated his patients and how they responded to his care.”

She said one of the most important lessons she learned from her father was to be patient and develop relationships.

“In 2003, I had the opportunity to treat a very special elderly lady,” Dr. Gudaru said. “She had been abused by someone she knew and had not seen a physician. We developed a special patient/physician relationship. I was there when she needed me most. This was a great learning experience for me and for her. It was life changing.”

She says she enjoys working with hypertension, women’s health, geriatrics and particularly, issues facing women and children.

“My ultimate goal is to be the go-to physician,” she said. “If a patient sees me, I want them to feel like they want their whole family to see me as well.”

In her spare time, she enjoys biking, walking and spending time with her two children and her husband, PMC Pediatrician Dr. Kishore Gadikota.

Dr. Gudaru is located in the Pikeville Practice Clinic at 184 South Mayo Trail. To schedule a physician appointment, call 606-430-2210.
