“I really love what I’m doing,” says Dr. Mikkilineni. “There is great satisfaction in helping people get healthier.”
While growing up in southern India, Mikkilineni always knew she wanted to be a physician. After earning her medical degree in internal medicine from Siddhartha Medical College in her native country, Mikkilineni moved to the United States. She enrolled at the University of Toledo for her fellowship and residency in internal medicine from 2003-2006, while still trying to decide on a specialty.
